So here’s the deal.
I have a box.
This box holds five items. I show you one item. A gold bar. True gold. The truest gold you’ve ever seen. I place it in the box, and say that there are four other gold bars in the box.
My offer is a million dollars – or whatever gold goes for these days.
Would you buy it?

This post started with a comment:
Great review, and I do look forward to seeing how you feel about it at the end as well.
Now after four months, I can finally say I’ve completed Dawn of the Peacemakers, and can tell you definitively what I think.
Note: While I’ll make this as spoiler free as possible, I will give away some mechanics. Sorry!

Alright Class. Take a seat.
Today we’re learning about Agent: The Consortium.
It starts with the Chancellor Nostros Calahaan’s resignation and a vacant job position. It pays a cushy salary and you get to wear your Harry Potter cosplay without judgement. So of course, you need to apply.

Have ye heard the tale? A board game that wanders into town
at night searching for lost tokens. Collecting them. Adding them to its box. And
wandering off into the night? It is a tale as old as time, and yet no one has
seen this board game.
No one, that is, until now.

Welcome back to the board game arena. Last time we saw Machi Koro and Space Base go at round for round. Today, the spotlight shines on two more games. The incumbent Diamant/Incan Gold versus the young, up and comer; Celestia!
Who will win? And who will push their luck too far?

A couple of weeks ago, Ryan and Drew over at Sword, Board, and Pen put together a couple of lists of their Top 18 Spiel des Jahres Winners. It’s an interesting challenge, and great to read their thoughts.
There’s only one problem: both their lists are wrong.

I’ve never seen a crime scene like this before. Cards ripped in half and sprayed across the tiled living room floor. Dice smashed into small pieces. And the box ripped in two. The gruesome nature of the murder points to one thing.
A crime of passion.

Small box games are the grab bags of board gaming. They’re cheap and generally rules light. So there’s not as much investment in getting a game up and running. However, you still want to be having as much fun as possible. And with a million and one games out there is Capital Lux worth it?
Well, you’ll have to read on and see won’t you.

Board games are getting better.
It’s not a bold statement. With thousands of games released
every year, and more money being pumped into the hobby. Designers are starting
to figure out how to distil fun.
However, there are games that will stand the test of time.
This is one of them.

Sorry guys. No new review this week. I’ve caught something. Not exactly sure what it is. But my body no longer does slight coughs, or mild fevers.
It does full bodied zombification.
Unfortunately, this means I won’t be able to attend this weeks board game night.
Worse still is that there isn’t a new review for you all.
Hoping to get back on the horse next week.
