Saw this at Dice Tower Con, looked great. I'll keep an eye out for it when it releases.

Did you get to play it, or was it just being displayed?

Samurai Jack? Animated series by the great Tartakovsky? Had a 5th season released some 10 years after the show went off Cartoon Network? A season that is perhaps the greatest animated show ever made?


Now, somebody with an appreciation of that mind blowing 5 th season has created a game about it.


What the hell is not to get? This isn't some long dead IP. That 5 th season was recent.

That 5th season was so good.

what I don't get:

* why ever single IP that ever fired off an endorphin in some nerd's brain suddenly needs to be a board game

* why even though they're always from fly-by-night or extremely casual publishers everyone yells "Shut Up and Take My Money!"

* why people keep falling for this even though you can count the ones that paid off on one hand and still have at least your middle finger free to tell me to fuck off

* why TWBG is filling its front page with this kind of reprinted press release

1. Because members here are interested in this information
2. Because press releases and new board game information drives 25% of our search traffic here. Users that land here on a search who don't bounce will then browse 3 - 7 additional pages.

Because they make money. Board game publishers aren't charities.

* why even though they're always from fly-by-night or extremely casual publishers everyone yells "Shut Up and Take My Money!"

"Everyone" doesn't yell that. The reviewers and hardcore hobbyists, we have some of both here, will be interested in just about everything. The rest of us wait to see what they say.

Barnes' Game of the Year Month is a Disney license from decades old animated movies. Not sure if he "fell for it" as its his job to review stuff.

How else would I know? I don't read BGG or visit every publisher website.

Sorry Uba didn't see your response until today. I did not get to play it unfortunately but got the quick blurb from one of their staff. It sounded like a nice co-op and the little figures were cool. Of course I really like Samurai Jack so that helps.

Also as to why this site has blurbs from other publishers like this--the site has been doing similar since its inception, a little late in the game to say, "hurh, dafuq?" about it now.
