Anybody remember Tilsit's JOAN OF ARC?  Anybody?  Hello?  Is this thing on?

Well, I do...and I liked it probably more than I ought to have.  Of course, no one will play it with me but for years it's remained on my shelf as one of the very few Joan of Arc games out there.  I'm a big fan of hers- and yeah, I liked THE MESSENGER.

AGEOD, that crazy French PC game developer with a strange obsession with American wars that did the really great but strangely opaque BIRTH OF AMERICA and AGEOD'S AMERICAN CIVIL WAR has teamed up with Tchounga Games and designer Pascal Barnard to bring us MONTJOIE!, an unasked for and almost totally unexpected PC version of the game.  I'm pretty thrilled- and it turns out the game is really fun.  I thought it'd make for a good review over at Gameshark.com .

Screw that TICKET TO RIDE on Xbox Live crap...play a electronic version of a board game that's actually fun and _better_ than its cardboard counterpart.  Get the demo here.

Sometime in the early 1980s, MichaelBarnes’ parents thought it would be a good idea to buy him a board game to keep him busy with some friends during one of those high-pressure, “free” timeshare vacations. It turned out to be a terrible idea, because the game was TSR’s Dungeon! - and the rest, as they say, is history. Michael has been involved with writing professionally about games since 2002, when he busked for store credit writing for Boulder Games’ newsletter. He has written for a number of international hobby gaming periodicals and popular Web sites. From 2004-2008, he was the co-owner of Atlanta Game Factory, a brick-and-mortar retail store. He is currently the co-founder of FortressAT.com and Nohighscores.com as well as the Editor-in-Chief of Miniature Market’s Review Corner feature. He is married with two childen and when he’s not playing some kind of game he enjoys stockpiling trivial information about music, comics and film.
