I just saw the new games that White Goblin Games will be releasing at Essen in Germany in October. These are looking really good. They’ve also just started taking pre-orders too.
A game based on the excellent Citadels but this time it’s a race game to be the first one to the temple to plunder its treasures.
In Citadels, players select a role/character from a fixed set and pass the rest to the next player to make their choice. Figuring out which role each player has probably selected is a big part of the game as some characters foil others and no-one knows who picked which character until everyone has chosen for that round. Not sure how much of this is in Lost Temple but it sounds very interesting as Citadels is a classic.
Plays 2-8 players too.
This game really interests me as it’s like the movie The Thing with a single player who has been taken over by an alien amongst lots of uninfected players; however, the infection can spread so the infected players start to increase. Each player controls an android and a human trying to stop the evil aliens – well, unless they;re already evil aliens.
The reason this interests me so much is that I actually have game design notes going back some years with the exact same premise, so I’m very interested to see how this game compares.
