Episode 58 - Top 100 Games of All Time part 10 (10-1)

Introduction

  • Zany Banter
  • Result of the Poll.

News

  • Coloma by Final Frontier Games on Kickstarter with 12 days to go. This is a simultaneous action selection, resource management and engine building game where players are trying get the most gold and build up their section of the town better than everyone else without going bust.
  • Quirky Circuits - Asmodee also showcased an upcoming game called Quirky Circuits, a family-friendly board game from the makers of Stuffed Fables. Players work together to take on the role of a single cat on top of a Roomba, which is trying to go around the house collecting dust. Except players can’t tell each other what direction they’re sending the vacuum, so it’s possible that what one players does will completely screw over everyone else. Like Stuffed Fables, the game comes with a book that has a series of boards on it, providing different challenges for players. We haven’t learned the release date, but we’ll keep you posted
  • Don’t buy expensive dinosaurs.
