There Will Be Games

Every spring, millions of monarch butterflies leave Mexico to spread out across eastern North America. Every fall, millions fly back to Mexico. However, no single butterfly ever makes the round trip.

Mariposas is a game of movement and set collection that lets players be part of this amazing journey.

Mariposas is played in three seasons. In general, your butterflies try to head north in spring, spread out in summer, and return south in fall. The end of each season brings a scoring round, and at the end of fall, the player with the most successful family of butterflies — i.e., the most victory points — wins the game.

With all the game announcements, I can’t believe that the one that I’m most interested in is about butterflies. I might have to turn in my F:AT card and go play Agricola.

Mostly it’s a factor of the slim pickings of this year’s game announcement season.

What I’ve been hearing is that publishers shifted gears due to the pandemic. They’ve been putting the breaks on development of “gamer’s games” and big multiplayer games, and accelerating development on their family and 2-player games. So expect to see a lot of family and 2-player games announced this GenCon, and hitting the shelves in Q4 2020 and Q1 2021. Also expect release date delays on other types of games previously announced if they weren’t already in the production pipeline back in March.

Yeah, I'm just fucking with you.

I haven't had much really want this year either. Oath probably, maybe Empyreal Spells and Steam too.
