MIND-The Fall of Paradise - WhatWeMake

MIND is an asymetrical game of human survival and re-population/colonization as mankind rebels against MIND, an AI that's been given power of the 15th district of earth. With plenty of story and lots of scenarios, one player will assume the role of MIND while up to 3 others will play as rebel leaders trying to take down the system! We haven't previewed this one, but love the concept and deep story elements. Should be a fun ride.

New Bedford: A Boardgame of Historic Whaling & Town Building - Dice Hate Me Games

Dice Hate Me is back at it on Kickstarter with New Bedford, a game of town-building and, well, whale killing. Named after the historic town, New Bedford is a worker-placement--or should we say a two-worker-placement--game, because you only get two workers. Players are not only trying to move up the ranks of the whaling industry but also build new buildings in the town, which in turn creates new actions available to the players. It's important to note that the game is based on a time when the whaling industry was a driving force in our country--neither Dice Hate Me nor we here at Theology of Games condone the hunting of these gentle giants, but Dice Hate Me thinks it's an important time in our history and makes for a great game. While we haven't played New Bedford, we agree with that sentiment!

  • Title - New Bedford
