• Now that Spiel and BGG.CON are behind us, at least for a few months, I'm clearing out some of the messages and links and open tabs that I've let build up for months. One of the things that I ran across is a teaser interview that I recorded at Gen Con 2012 with Steve Jackson Games' Phil Reed for its 2013 Car Wars Kickstarter project. Unlike many other things that have fallen under the couch in the past six months, this material is still timely!

• Oh, hey, here's another Gen Con 2012 video that is still relevant, yet not previously published on the appropriate game page or on BGG News. Asmadi Games' Chris Cieslik attempts to describe Consequential, co-designed with Carl Chudyk and due for another run on Kickstarter before the end of 2012 following an aborted KS run in August 2012. Even with the long description from Cieslik, I'm still baffled as to what this game might feel like during play. Perhaps this is something you just need to trust and experience in real-time rather than trying to suss it out ahead of time – or perhaps I'm just being dense.

• But wait – there's more! At Gen Con 2012 FoxMind's Marie-Ève Lupien showed off the publisher's new version of String Railway, which I believe has still not hit the retail market. I'm checking with FoxMind about that and other titles, but Marie-Ève has moved on to other things in the meantime – that's how long it's taken me to post this – so it might take a bit to get an update. Zut alors!
