Yes I am still alive. I've been working on a rather large project, that will hopefully be launching sometime in the next 60 days in my spare time. I haven't gamed much since the warm weather hit. Last night I played Duck Dealer, which was interesting. I think I would of enjoyed it more if I wasn't constantly being reminded how most of us where taking turns was considered "wrong" and this is usually not my type of game, collect resources to build more resources. The good news is I didn't come in last :)

I order a load of games last night, I got to see the new Tales game and it looked so good and I knew my wife would play this so I bought it. The rest of my order were mainly war games, which never seem to get played in my Thursday night group which might be another reason why I burned out a bit on gaming.

I'll try and get back to posting here, even if I am the only one reading it.

Just letting everyone know who still reads this thing I got it yesterday. Excellent components, can't wait to play it. I'll get a review up as soon as I get a session in.

Bits of News

Although there is no official word on the Z-man site or at the Geek, Fun again has posted a pre-order for a Pandemic Expansion called On the Brink. The description indicated new roles, a 5th player, new variants etc. I'm sure they got this information from Z-man before posting this so I'd expect something more official in the near future.

Dominion: Intrigue is the first expansion for the popular card game. This is being packaged as a stand alone, meaning you get all the treasure and estate cards you need to play again. Of course with those cards comes the same price as the first game. Another expansion is set for a fall release and that one will be a true expansion.

War Game Video

The War Game from Dan on Vimeo.

This is a video I shot with a Flip Mino, first time I used it and the quality is so -so on the close ups. I was also sick as a dog, in other words this video is purely for test purposes but I thought I would share it.

The War Game & the surprise hit

I'm going to save my thoughts on the War Game for a full on review. I'll just drop one hint, when you're charging 100+ dollars for a game you better deliver on at least one of these 3 areas.

1. Bit Quality & Quantity - The War Game fails, the bits are too few in number and too big for the board. Think about that for a second this board is HUGE, but the bits are too big. then you don't get enough of them, look I know France won't play much a part in the war but man give them at least one of each unit. Also I don't like that fact that my boards edges already are fettered just from opening the game.

2. Unique Play Experience - I knew going in the this game was Axis & Allies on Steroids, but if I am staying with that analogy if this game was getting tested for illegal growth hormones it wouldn't get caught for doing anything illegal. While some of the rules are nice, a lot of the advanced rules need to be downloaded off the internet.

3. Support - The web site for this game is an utter mess, certain modules mentioned in the rule book are not even available on the site. This game wasn't just published mind you it's been out a while.

Now if you want to spend a good $15, go out and buy Sorry Sliders. Yes you heard me right, a MB game that doesn't suck. Someone took the Sorry name and slapped it on a decent Dex game.
The game comes with 4 different boards and game types and if you have kids this is sure to be a hit.

I played a lot of games over the break and I have a shipment of FFG games coming my way this week, it feels good to be back in the gaming saddle.
