Junk Art is #5!

While Origins is now a few weeks in our rear window, I just became aware of the fact that it was ranked as the 5th top game at Origins according to the Geek Buzz! The Geek Buzz is from boardgamegeek.com and involves attendees of Origins submitting which games they think are hot – or are buzz-worthy. It’s a pretty cool feat since Junk Art beat out one of this year’s Spiel des Jahres nominees!

Akrotiri is getting a reprint!

AkroWell this is lovely news! We heard from Filosofia, the publisher of Akrotiri that they are completely sold out of Akrotiri – but the orders from game stores keep pouring in – so another print run has been ordered! That’s fantastic news! No news on when it should be available, but if you want the game, keep bugging your friendly local game stores!

Overview of Godfather: A New Don video

Godfather-boxWhile at Origins, Nate from IDW Games was asked by Learn to Play to give an overview of how Godfather: A New Don works. He does an admirable job going through all the aspects of the game – but there are still some interesting things left to explore once it is released this summer! Remember to pre-order from your favourite local game store!

Godfather: A New Don Launch Video

To help better explain our new Godfather: A New Don game (from IDW Games), we made a video! I have a starring role in the video and Sen created the cool Godfather-esque music for it! The video gives a quick rundown of how the game works so you have more information about whether this game is for you or not (trust me – it is for you!!). Ask your local your store to pre-order it for you can be the coolest person on the block!

Bearded Meeple reviews Junk Art

Our second video review of Junk Art just popped up online! This time it’s from the infamous Bearded Meeple. He reviews the components and some of the rules (there are many ways to play) and then gives his thoughts on the game. Some key sound bites that I enjoyed:

“We had a lot of fun playing it.”

“I like the obscure pieces in it and I really like the cards.”

“It’s not the same game every time you play it.”

“I like it! I hope you get a chance to check it out.”

Thanks Bearded Meeple!
