Vox Day Xanatos Gambit Update

Before, Vox Day’s opponents were spending a lot of effort to convince me that Vox Day was evil genius mastermind.  Today, Vox Day confirms they were right.

Later this week, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the Fan Writers Category (expect some shilling), posting a partial review of the BFRPG module Zombraire’s Estate (Shadow Over Alfheim), and more Short Reviews.

I don’t know if I’ll really review Red Dragon Inn, but I will go ahead and say “I love this game, I want it and I want all of the decks and I wish it wouldn’t cost me close to $200 to get all of the decks.”

It’ll be a little while longer before I can continue my Bar-Lev series; I got my dad Ogre as an early birthday present, and we played it 4 times, leaving no time to set up another round of Bar-Lev.  He said it was the coolest new board game he’d played in years.  Considering his tastes in board games, that’s saying something.  The only thing that’s a surprise to me was that he’d somehow missed it in the first place.

  1. I’m glad you enjoyed Red Dragon Inn. I was rather surprised by it myself. Also, I’m not willing to shill out the $200 for all the decks, and it’s stood up pretty well with just the four we started with — it’s unpredictable enough with the decks, players, and drinks, I think, to maintain its novelty-with-a-touch-of-strategy.


    • I just really appreciate how they manage to make all of the decks have little quirky character based nuances and still have a balanced game. Plus, playing with more than 4 people made the gambling really interesting. Reminded me a bit of my college days of playing poker with 8-10 people: huge pots (even with chump-change buyins) any you never know what’s going to happen.
