puberty 2: electric boogaloothe saga of class L5Bcheatingwinning
Quinns: Morning everybody! This week the entire board game industry is rammed into Essen's convention centre, so the only news story we have is of a new collectible Magic: The Gathering board game! It looks an awful lot like Heroscape but less interesting. Mike said it best: "Monochromatic miniatures, poor terrain, and absolutely no chance that a dinosaur will eat a robot while an army man watches."
If you're interested in the details then Board Game Geek has already uploaded a comprehensive Essen preview video, but I'm unconvinced. I want to revisit Magic: The Gathering like I want to revisit puberty.
Speaking of which, since we don't have any more news this week why don't I share my sad story of playing Magic when I was a kid? Take a seat. Or if you're at work, slide your wheely chair a little closer to your PC, creating a calming snugness between your thighs and your desk. It's almost like being in bed.
