The game is out, and no-one has a clue what it's about, or whether it's any good.

I guess they aren't going for the board game crowd.

Yes - it is interesting. I just received my copy a few days ago but have not had a chance to open it. Definitely not a lot of info about it on BGG. I love the video games and it is relatively cheap so I just took a chance.

Geek gold for your thoughts on the game Chris?

I will try to get in a few games this weekend. My son is a huge fan of the games also so he might be willing.

I have been curious as well.

In the latest Dice Tower podcast Eric Summerer played and liked it. Here is a link to the forum and Episode #348. There isn't an annotated direct link to the piece but I believe it is in the 'Update from the GAMA', after the 51:20 mark.

It is fairly brief but even though he liked it I wasn't very intrigued by his description.

I've had my copy for a week but haven't had a chance to pull it out yet. I'm hoping to maybe get it on the table tomorrow but we'll see.

I'd certainly like to know more about this game. All of this weeks online game store emails say its now in stock and I doubt they made that many, so I'd expect the Assassin's Creed fanboys to snap most of them up. That would include me, but there are so many decent games out there I don't have in the queue ahead of it. I'm not buying it without seeing a runthrough or at least a few reviews. It's fine having read the rules but I need to see the game played or hear people's opinions of how everything clicks together. The game looks a little 'cheap' but I'm afraid the gameplay may be too?

Well, if no one has bought a copy in the next week we will break one open and have a go with it. We are as much in the dark as anyone else - other than it popping on the pre order list a few weeks ago there has been no information about it - other than the fact it might not be available for long.

Where would we be without these mysteries....

There is a rather detailed review of the game in the Ratings Comments.
