The politics of Mombasa

Mombasa is a very heavy game, with what seems like twenty different mechanics going on at the same time. Its main mechanic is a neat take on deckbuilding, but the game also offers some area control, light worker placement, and even a personal point track that everyone else can only marginally interfere with. Mombasa somehow harnesses these into a fun and coherent whole, as Eric explains in his 98th Push Your Luck review video. He recommends buying and playing the game on its mechanical merits alone, but for me, the most interesting part of the game is its theme.

In the next installment of Let's Talk, I chat with Emerson who designed Specter Ops, a tabletop game inspired by a video game, and Arnold who designed Card Crawl, a card based video game that looks to be inspired by a tabletop game. In Let's Talk, we chat with a video game designer and a tabletop game designer and discuss game design concepts and I try to get different perspectives about games from their respective industries.

Exciting news! My article at Kotaku has been published! It is about the Best 5 recent games you should be playing right now and you can find it here http://kotaku.com/five-new-board-games-you-should-play-17316...
