Cole Wehrle's Oath
mc wrote: Don't know when it's coming but Cole Wehrle's new leder games project is going to be a must for me. A historiography inspired thing about the ebb and flow of history - both what happens but also what is remembered - where each new game is dependent on the ones that have already been played. ... I recognise the potential vanity of it and the possibility that it just doesn't work , but the idea sounds like so much my bag it's like the stitching holding it together.
So they've started releasing actual info about this now. Cole has begun his designer diary. It's called Oath: Something Something. Still keen.
Looks like a pure shelf toad to me, especially with the historical meta-game stuff. I doubt I'll ever get to to play it enough for that stuff to matter.
It's an ambitious project for sure, so I'm interested. Supporting people pushing the edges of things is okay with me. It can go in the toad garden.

No idea if this will be the deal, but I imagine it will essentially be a scenario based game where the scenario is setup by the previous game - with the ability to still play at any count, and of course to just reset if you want. Hopefully the game play is good. Given the designer there's a good chance of that.
But yeah, I remember Root going into playtesting, having a huge rewrite of the card mechanic in playtesting, and still basically making its release date.
Maybe there's enough already there to hit the date.
