Ug, I’ve totally missed out on 9 days of boardgaming talk because I was just counting on the notifications and didn’t realize we had a new thread. So sad.
Fair enough, I also hated that thread title. QT3 is my favorite forum full of the worst thread-titlers in the business.
The theme goes a long way in Anachrony. It’s a solid worker placement game with a loan system I actually like using, plus cool exosuits. The new single player bot that comes with the latest expansion is really cool, though. Very clever and it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite bots in any heavy Euro.
Also, Cthulhu Wars: Duel arrived today. No minis in this one! Old thread title would be so proud.
The map and rule book confirm what absolutely no one doubted: PG will be releasing multiple versions of CW: Duel in the future, each with 2 new factions and a unique map, all interchangeable. You can already see the faction icons for the others on the map in this one, and the rule book contains stuff for them as well.
Also wouldn’t be surprised to see a multiplayer pack in the future with a bigger map for more players. Here’s a picture of the box next to a reference Ganz to show how much shelf space this one will save you:
Is it Hallertau time yet?
