We have referred to it a few times in certain threads, but it deserves it's own thread.

I'm talking about Tom Vasel's review of Police Precinct.

Why is this such a big deal that it needs it's own thread?

Well...

We are talking about one of the greatest and most prolific reviewers of our time. What Tom says is very interesting, important, influential, and valuable.

Oh, wait, I forgot one thing... Fun!

Tom delivers his opinions in an enthusiastic, spirited, and down-right FUN way!

OK, OK, we get it...

You're saying that Tom is worth listening to for a lot of reasons, no one doubts that, but this is just another one of his reviews, right?

No, no, no...

This is not just another review by Tom. He doesn't get this excited about a game very often.

In this review of Police Precinct he says things like...

“This may be THE best cooperative game of the year, if not the best one I’ve ever played!”

By his own admission, he is "Giddy" about Police Precinct.

There's more, a lot more. This is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

You have to see this one to believe it...

Then when you're done looking at that, if you want to find out more about the game, go here...

We know this game intimately (obviously), and frankly we were shocked at how quickly and completely Tom was able to learn all of the nuances of the game (both pure co-op and with Traitor element), and even more amazed by how he could explain the game so well. It was inspiring to say the least

We tip the hat to Mr. V on this one.

We give his review 10 stars out of 10...!!!

I was pretty surprised by his rave review. So glad I backed this on kickstarter.

The Dice Tower review is what got this added to my TO BE BOUGHT list.

Hopefully next month when funds are a little easier.

If you go to the commonman website, they are still listing the pre-order sale..which is $50.50, free shipping, and you get "If you order now, you will receive 3 Bonus Event cards that are randomly selected from The Mad Men Deck."


So, in reality, by buying it direct from them, you're:

1)Saving money on the price
2)Getting FREE SHIPPING (Incredible savings right there)
3)Getting bonus cards
4)"Receive Special Savings on Expansions"

To me...it seemed like a no brainer to order direct from them. No reason to wait for coolstuff ;p


PS: No, I don't work for them ;p

UPDATE:

Just call this a rumor for now, but here is what I'm hearing around the water-cooler...

Tom's top games for 2012 list Police Precinct as #11.

Not bad for 300 games reviewed!!!

Once again this is just a rumor and you didn't hear it from me.
