I've been curious about this as I've been researching Ignacy's other works. I just picked up The New Era and was wondering are these very different?

I owned this one and sold it without ever playing it It looked neat (cool art) but it wasn't going to get played. Note that it's been on daily deal several times now. I think partly because $30 is a high MSRP for what's in the box (a deck of cards, 5 larger cards, and a few counters).

To be fair, while I don't always agree, Tom gets a lot of comped copies and trashes many of them. The reviews tend to steadily decline following the big shows (Essen/GenCon) because the games with the most potential get played first and around this time of year we get to see the bottom of the pile.

I would take him at his word on this one. I picked it up myself the last time it was on sale. I haven't gotten it to the table yet but it looks pretty good for a less than $15 game.

This. I've seen him thrash quite a few games that he most definitely didn't pay for.

His KS previews are straight up promotion but I've never seen any reason to doubt the authenticity of his actual game reviews. (whether you agree with his taste or not)

I have also seen Tom do a KS preview and then later trash that same game in a review.

But I have also played some of the games that Tom actually really loved and did not care for them. To each is there own.

Chiming in to agree as well. Not a very nice accusation to make without some really solid proof.

Edit: And yeah, previews and reviews are 2 very different things.

This is a good game. I don't think it has long-term legs, but it's a good 2p filler game.

That's what I was concluding. We never play filler games.
