There Will Be Games

Not going to paste the PR on this one. It caught my eye because the theme and the graphic design is like nothing else I've seen in board gaming. And while it sounds as square as a game box: who knows? It seems to be generating some early buzz.

So get a pack of blacks and a beat CD and get yo' freestyles ready.

loses me at "storytelling" but otherwise looks cool. The discussion elsewhere is going about as one might imagine.

Lots of unknowns here, but different enough and stylish enough to stay on my radar.

Rather have a new edition of Legend of the Cipher, the hip-hop, deck-building game.

Yes! I still play this once every couple of years for kicks.

Dang! Just looked this up. Is this is a Kickstarter that never funded or something? Seems cool as hell.

Pre-Kickstarter, I believe. I had to print-and-build my copy with penny sleeves and bulk Magic commons, but I can’t find them online now. One thing I appreciated was that it featured a plethora of real artists and their bars. You could discover some new favorites that way.

I have a semi-professional copy that came via Gamecrafter. They did have a Kickstarter I believe but it failed, and they pushed forward anyway. Creative differences ended up splitting the design team apart, which is sad but amusing.

Omari's a local and a good dude. I threw a small pledge at the campaign just to get it over the hump but didn't pick a reward. Now that it's actually coming out I may buy one from him. Really glad to see it going well.
