February yawns

Athena: JW, have you seen anything you fancy from the February Kickstarter list?


JW: Not really.


Athena: Nothing? It can't be. Let's take a closer look. Runelords is first.


JW: How does it play solo?


Athena: You face off another runelord (bot). The preview looked very fiddly. Not much to say here. Let's talk about Vampires instead.


JW: 3,000 standees! It will take ages to find the right one and put it in play.


Athena: And lots of chapters!


JW: You'd need to be immortal to finish it.


Athena: Well, you're used to playing Aeons that never end.


JW: Yes. The new one has more Expedition stuff. Sounds like it will be introduced with a continuation of the story. Which was the least interesting part of last year's box. And it is yet another standalone expansion. Well, you can never have enough power tokens, I guess.


Athena: I don't like the looks of this game anyway. Which isn't the case for PARKS.


JW: True. There's not much else you can do with PARKS though, is there? How is the gameplay?


Athena: The artwork is pretty.


JW: Yes. How is the gameplay?


Athena: As I said, the artwork is pretty.


Athena: What about the new Enchanters expansion?


JW: Like with Aeon's End, I have no idea why these games go to Kickstarter. I guess nobody will buy the expansions without the temporary campaign hype.


Athena: JW, did you ever want to work in a car factory?


JW: No.


Athena: If it was run by Vital Lacerda and assembled metal car meeples?


JW: Oh, Kanban EV. No. I mean, come on. Run a production line efficiently. It doesn't just sound like work, it is work.


Athena: Yes, people like work in their games.


JW: Boring work? Why?


Athena: You ask boring questions. Do you like chibis?


JW: Of course not!


Athena:Then Marvel United is not for you. It seems best to play with kids anyway.


JW: Right. And we are a solitaire website. Next.


Athena: Endogenesis. People said it wasn't playtested at all. Balance problems. But the designer is playtesting it now.


JW: Just in time. Must be another Kanban enthusiast.


Athena: The Dead Eye. Funny glasses.


JW: You want this!


Athena: Sure, who doesn't want to feel ridiculous even when no one's watching.


JW: Please post a selfie when you play it with your 3D glasses on.


Athena: By Stealth and Sea. It's for you.


JW: Yes, you can never wait on enough DVG games to fulfil.


Athena: A new expansion for Heroes of Tenefyr. The game with the deceptive box art. It looks nothing like that inside.


JW: Does the expansion have the same cover?


Athena: No, but it's equally deceptive.


JW: Ah yes, I see them side by side. The cover is expanding its own universe.


Athena: Tanares Adventures for Arena the Contest. JW, are you yawning?


JW: *dozing off* What? No. February sounds exciting. Another Minis-Heavy Narrative Campaign Game Where Your Decisions Matter. Please, take my money. *jaw almost dislocates*
