Anyway.
Fantasy Flight Games has done it again.
They’re currently going through...

Everyone is readjusting to their regular lives after a massive GenCon weekend. Or at least that’s how I imagine it; thousands of people doing a walk of shame.

I backed Smartphone because I'm a sucker for modern day games I guess, but I'm worried it's going to be another bland euro optimization puzzle good for about three plays before one player finds the path through it and hammers that every time. We'll see.

I think you'll be alright. All of the Dice Tower Essential games I've played so far have hit the mark. Though, I'm very interested in hearing how this one goes, and might have to pick it up later in retail.

Still hate the name though. Haha

I got to try out Smart Phone at Dice Tower con. The 'smart pad' mechanism is very clever - you have two double-sided pads with a 3x4 grid of icons. At the start of each turn you overlay them to determine what your price will be, production levels, etc. It's neat little puzzle made more neat by the extra placards you can also pick up during the course of play.

It's actually a pretty cutthroat economic game. So if you're looking to just optimize your own little sandbox, this is not the game for you. You can really screw people over in this one, shut them out of markets, and send all their unsold phones to the scrap heap.

I backed Sleeping Gods, marking only the second time I've ever backed anything on Kickstarter. The first time -- Ryan Laukat's Roam, which is shipping soon. So yeah, I'm pretty much a sucker for whatever Laukat creates.

I'm hopeful that my 9-year-old and I can get into Sleeping Gods. It looks like a fascinating premise, which an incredibly ambitious scope. We've played through the Near and Far campaign mode twice, and this looks like Laukat's next iteration of that concept.

And even if it sucks, you know it will at least look pretty.

Yep, I'm in on Sleeping Gods too, even though Near & Far didn't quite hit the target for me. I'm hoping to play this one with my daughter.

Ryan has never under-delivered on his KS campaigns. In fact sometimes his games ship out sooner than expected.
