A Game Built for Two Previews: Guile

June 22nd - via: boardgamegeek.com
The world and mystery of King Arthur and his Knights of the Roundtable has long been a favorite. Knights and ladies performing brave deeds and chivalrous acts filled my young mind with wonder. I ignored the intrigue and deceit and focused on the good. Guile, on the other hand, looks at that trickery as one player becomes Sir Mordred who seeks to influence the Round Table, of course Arthur's noble knights won't let him down as they use their own wile and guile to keep the Round Table safe. (Read More)

Guile Game Review (prepublished version)

June 11th - via: fathergeek.com
At first glance, I wasn’t the least bit impressed with Guile. It read like a simple memory game. Not a bad game, mind you, but one that didn’t seem to have much in the way of game play. My suspicions regarding the game’s lack of depth were further reinforced after I read the very short rules that only describe two possible actions the player could take on their turn. Very limiting and there wasn’t much there to suggest that the player had much control over the components on the game table. I had fears of players simply shifting the same cards around because they knew what they were, resulting in a strange medieval-themed game of loyalty Ping Pong. (Read More)
