The Shut Up and Sit Down effect. Most of us board gamers know it. It has two sides. They manage to make you very enthousiastic and make you want to buy a game, BUT you’re not the only person, so chances are that the game will be sold out within days. This also happened to Conditierre. The game is still unavailable, alas.
But speaking about Captain Sonar, that game looks amazingly cool! Like mentioned in the comic we are already familiar with playing Artemis, a Star Trek bridge simulator, so this just feels like a logical next step. 😉 In Artemis we always place the other bridge team in a different room, so I can’t wait to see what happens when your enemy is actually on the other side of the table. Screaming at each other or trying to communicate in whispers in a room while the other team is talking right through it. The stress of the radio communicater when the submarine surfaces and can’t write down the movement of the other team. YES. We need to play this!
Oh yeah: a thank you to all the websites that covered Gen Con so fantastically for all us Gen Can’t-people. It was hard work for you guys, but it is much appreciated!
