Impressions Vidcast: Episode 12
Richard and I start by talking about the industry effects of Steve Jackson Games announcing their desire to purchase game companies. We then barrell through a whole bunch of recent releases (Hirelings, Medieval Mastery, Fallen City of Karez, Mutant Epoch RPG supplements) and show off a couple upcoming games (Viticulture, Sushi Go). It’s all rounded out with Richard leading a discussion about his predictions on the evolution of game printing and shipping.

In Fallen City of Karez, each player will take the role of a lord of one of the guilds who seek to tighten their grasp on the rising city.

Also, unfortunately, too many of the new Cutthroat Caverns base set (S&D0040) and Cutthroat Caverns: Fresh Meat (S&D0045) had manufacturing errors with card production and tray inserts. Because of this, the printer has graciously replaced all base sets and Fresh Meat products. At the same time, the manufacturer has produced replacement decks and trays for those that have a problem with the previous run of games. All replacement items are $0.00 – please order what you need to take care of errors only. Graphical representation of the replacements and details can be found here on this PDF file.
