Looking back: Week 4

Games I Viewed:
Alien Uprising
Status: Funded

In this science fiction-themed game, players work together to repair their spaceship before they are overwhelmed with hostile alien creatures. I was interested because it is cooperative, but it appears to be a "tower defense" type of game (like Castle Panic), and that's not really my thing. Also, it uses a lot of dice, and that's not particularly a favorite mechanic of mine.


Cubist
Status: 21% funded

This is a tile-laying game in which the "tiles" are actually dice that are stacked to form three-dimensional shapes to earn points. I think the idea is really clever. I'm just not sure I'd want to pay $40 for what is essentially a set of 80 dice.


Sangoku
Status: Funded

In this game, players compete using cards illustrated with a Japanese mythology theme. I was intrigued by the theme, but unfortunately I find the art hideous. Also, the game is constantly compared to poker, and I detest poker. To top it off, it's a player elimination game. No, thank you.

I'm perched on an early bird pledge for Alien Uprising (because that is how Kickstarter has taught me to be), but I'm only going to see it through if I decide I can't live without the X-14 "expansion" (a $10 add-on). The minis aren't exciting to me at all, and I'm betting I could pick the game up for less than $45 at retail.
