Apologies, folks. Duty called and I ended up spending the past couple of weeks in holed up somewhere near Lim Chu Kang.
But enough about me. You’re here for the games. We’ve got our usual spread of new stuff, and all those Splendor, Ticket to Ride and Dixit restocks you’ve been waiting for.
Business as usual, folks!
Alternatively described as a gripping co-operative game of supernatural deduction and a “game of ghosts, murder and hilarious incompetence“, in Mysterium, players are alternately Mediums attempting to grapple with cryptic clues from a haunting as they attempt to solve a murder, or a Ghost who is increasingly frustrated by the inability of the Mediums to follow his instructions. Will the murder be solved before the harried Ghost player has an aneurysm and collapses?
In Shakespeare, players are theater managers who must recruit actors, craftsmen, jewelers and others in order to assemble everything needed for the play’s performance at week’s end. Each day players recruit one new character and take actions with the characters they have. After the actions, they must check the ambience level in their theater, hoping to gain gaining points and rehearsal time. Players must juggle the balance between earning revenue to pay their actors and at the same time ensure the artistry of their plays to maintain their credibility.
The Audience has spoken – in the Room 25 Season 2 expansion for the claustrophobic Room 25 survival game, new arrivals have been tossed into the labyrinthine survival game – and the existing cast has gotten all new power boosts. Of course, the complex hasn’t stayed the same either, and the players will have to face more hazards and traps in their bid for survival.
