There is a duck in every game. You may not see it, but it's there.

So I tried to push the envelope of the review process and was slapped down by moderation. I attempted a review in Haiku. I have done many reviews on games and would not do short reviews for most (in fact most of my reviews are quite long), but I felt this game deserved this kind of review. I have no desire to run it through Geek Mod until I run across someone who "gets it," so I am posting here for your pleasure or derision.

My favorite feedback from geek moding was: "Not a review just a couple of pictures."




A review in Haiku





Carving liquid blue
A clacking kingdom in bone
Melody of touch

I'm sure you are right. In my defense, I have seen one paragraph reviews get through modding that are essentially, "I love/hate this game." I think my opinion is clear and no worse than those.

It's better than most bloviating, long-winded reviews I've read recently...whistle

So I no longer submit.
Moderate breakdown?

Nor is it truly a haiku, but I can only approximate in English as I do not speak or write the native tongue.

A good article on the game - worthy of a single page in Vogue or Vanity Fair.

I like you to take up your pen again and expand this into a series of haiku about this game.

I hear the clacking,
But your verse holds no water.
Is re-play worth it?

It replays well and the board does represent the kingdom.

Ugh. Haiku? How about a paragraph that actually gives your opinion. Good things, bad things? What you like about it?

That would sort of defeat the point.

I do think I covered what I like about. you are correct, though, that I did not cover any of the few negatives.

I'm sure a lengthy rules overview with your 'final thoughts' being the haiku would have gone through!
