Alba Longa – Overview Video of New Euro Game

Alba Longa is the new Euro game from Tasty Minstrel Games (actually from Quined and Huch & Friends – but brought into the Americas by Tasty Minstrel). The designer, Graeme Jahns, is a member of the Game Artisans of Canada, that I also belong to, and so we thought it would be a good idea to make a video that showcases this award winning game. We decided to make a fun and informal ‘interview’ with me asking him general questions, instead of just doing a rules dump!

I had the pleasure to playtest this game about a dozen times (maybe more?!) and really enjoyed it – even though it does have a little bit of direct combat in it. Check out the video to learn about Alba Longa and then head over to Tasty Minstrel’s website to pick up the game for $40 – until March 2nd!

City TV – EVERYWHERE!

And now we are, too!  In fact, both Belfort and Train of Thought were featured on City TV’s Breakfast Television (Calgary) in a Holiday Gift Guide segment on boardgames.  Jasen Robillard did us proud by showcasing these and other games made by the Game Artisans of Canada (amongst other titles) on the air.

Here’s a link to the video on City TV’s site (I don’t think I can link directly to the actual video) – Check it out!
