It’s been a busy week at Dude Central, so I wasn’t planning on posting anything this week.
Then I happened to check my Inbox (Editor – Always a bad move).
What was this email that made me have to hop on my computer and post something quick?
Renegade Game Studios has announced a new Stefan Feld game coming in April 2019.
About US politics.
Thankfully not current US politics (I don’t like orange in my point salads), but the election of 1828.
Revolution of 1828 is going to be a 2-player game about the election between John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson with the candidates vying for people’s votes.
It’s a no-holds barred election, too (you thought today’s smear campaigns were bad).
I have to be quick, so let’s blurb this puppy from the web site.
“In this two-player game, you are trying to become the next President of the United States! To reach this lofty goal, each player will try to take Election tiles that suit you best and hinder your opponent’s campaign. Election tiles allow you to garner the allegiance of Electors and use the power of Smear Campaigns to skew the populace in your favor. If you also use the powerful Campaign Actions to your advantage and have the press look the other way, nothing should stand in your way!”
This sounds so intriguing, even more so because it’s a Feld game about a subject that doesn’t seem up Feld’s alley.
Maybe he can prove me wrong?
We’ll find out in April.
