Spinning the wheel this week, and....it's Martin Wallace's London. A game I like, but may be of minimal interest to a lot of our crew. Anyway, here goes.

You perfectly phrased something that is in most of my favorite games---"there is so much room for bad play that the game will gleefully let you drown yourself." I love that characteristic, it's like being trusted to screw up without training wheels. It doesn't hurt that a lot of the entertainment in games, for me, comes from fuck ups and clashes between imperfect players.

I still have A Study of Emerald shrink-wrapped.


if there ever is a national manhunt for a killer with a M.O. of shrink wrapping his victims and then forgetting them in odd places, I'm going to be the first to call the FBI tip line.

How many video games do you still have in wraps?

I can testify that it would qualify as an orgy of evidence.

I've never played London, though i do generally like Wallace games. I do like the fact that he is experimental but without disappearing down some hole to produce something that doesn't feel like a board game. I also like the fact, that despite coming from a euro background, he tends to create games with pivotal moves in them. Brass is probably the game of his i've liked most.

I keep meaning to try Brass. It, like London, looks dry on the surface. But I am betting I'd like it too. It always comes up in the discussion about the best Wallace games.

I really like this format, Ken, even though I don't have much to say about London.
