John Clowdus andKolossal Games are going big on this pimped new re-release of the Omen: a Reign of Warseries. There have been already two iterations of this saga and a lot of expansions of this BGG award nominee gamesaga since 2011. But we dare to say, this is going to be a big overhaul from the Smallbox editions and is going to be a fantastic line of games which this collaboration between these two publishers is bringing to us!
“Arte di Calimala” the guild of cloth finishers and merchants during the late Middle Ages. Through their arrogance (call it dedication), sense for artwork and skills in trading & fabrication, they grow to become one of the biggest elites of those times within the Florence region and went far beyond those borders with their influence. To set the stage right, for the youngsters out there, that was without Internet, YouTube viral video possibilities, Google AdWords or not even black & white television (yes those were a thing also kids) advertisement. And known that we have an easy way of life nowadays and can achieve everything we want, if we still have heart to work for it though and that is the still present common ground, working hard is still the key.
Calimala and being more than a just another “eurogame”
So you are here to listen to why Alien splicing is the next best thing after sliced bread? Because, in all honesty, it is a freaking amazing way to make workerplacement cool again. When we saw Rahdo’s video on it a while back, with those Lego’s instead of the fancy ones in the retail version, we were sceptical if this was going to a playable thing or just a gimmick to stand out. We can say it is both!
