Only the weak believe that what they do in battle is who they are as men.
Let’s unbox the latest truckload of goodies from CMON: B.Sieged: Sons of the Abyss.
Personally, I’d like to meet the person who named this game and give them a good long shake, because I can’t stand it! The ‘B’ sieged pun is bad enough; but then they went and stuck a colon next to it and gave it a subtitle. Argh, can’t stand it, not like it was in my day, grumble grumble…
Anyway, with that grumpy little whinge out of the way – wowsers! Look at all the stuff! Yes, it’s another Cool Mini or Not Kickstarter campaign, and I have to say that, for the price of a quality boardgame, you get about three times the usual amount of quality boardgame here. Also, as I mention too many times during the video, there are lots of lovely 3D markers that will work rather nicely in other games. And on top of that, the shipping was less than half the outrageous amount I usually have to stump up for international game postage. Well done CMON! I’ve also backed their latest The Others, and for my money they’re churning out some of the best value thematic gaming experiences you can find these days. Sure, there’s a tendency towards lots of dice rolling and swingy swings of luck, but I don’t always want an intense strategic experience. Sometimes I just wanna chuck dice and move gorgeous plastic figures around!
So let’s rip off the shrink wrap, open the mysterious brown parcels, and check out B.Sieged: Sons of the Abyss!
