Or, if cows aren’t your thing, you can try BATTLE SHEEP!!! (Emphasis mine.) I’ve loved sheep ever since I lived in Northern England for six months. It’s based on an abstract game called Splits, and while I’m generally not a fan of abstract strategy games . . . well, sheep! SHEEP! (via BGG)
Are you intrigued by Risk Legacy, but don’t actually want to play Risk? Yes? Well, good news, everyone! Plaid Hat Games and IronWall Games are releasing a 4X game set in a near-realistic fantasy world in which the choices players make have a lasting effect on gameplay. Sign. Me. Up. Also, the name of the game is SeaFall. (via BGG)
Pandemic is coming to the iPad. I don’t have an iPad, but I’m hopeful that there will be an Android conversion before long. It looks beautiful, by the way.
