The beginning of June brings my birthday and Origins Game Fair in Columbus. I had really hoped to make it down there this year, using either a media badge or a teacher badge. Instead, I will be attending virtually from home. I suppose our bank account will thank me…Anyway. I’ll manage and hopefully be able to still bring you news of new and upcoming games.
One of the new releases being previewed is Lanterns Dice: Lights in the Sky by Renegade Game Studios. I’ve been a fan of the original Lanterns game, I have the physical edition as well as the app on my iPad and phone. I’ve taught T how to play the app, he hasn’t played the physical game yet. I think it’s a little easier to see how to score points and obtain favor in the app. The new version being released is a dice version. I am really looking forward to seeing how they switch the game up from tiles to dice. I’ll admit, I’m a pushover for dice and tile games. It happens.
As the week goes by I will try to add more previews as games are released. I’m really interested in seeing everything that comes from this show, and I can’t wait to share it with you and the boys!
