Today we played a prototype game I received in the mail called "The Game of Energy". It's from Nathan Wright as well as a few others and let me tell you.... WOW!
This game is wonderful, even for a prototype! Now, I'm not here to kiss ass or anything just because Nathan is an acquaintance but it REALLY is that good and LOOKS the part too.
To start off, We're playing a game where we are trying to supply energy to avoid total blackout. Be it hydroelectric, solar, wind or a few others. On our turns we "buy" from the various energy sources letting them create energy on the different areas we roll.
During the game, those different energy suppliers also earn us points in TWh and in credits. When you reach a predetermined goal specified by the number of players from 1 - 4 then the game ends. The one with the highest TWh wins.
Now, I KNOW that may not sound appealing to some out there but let me just say this. If you give it a play through, you will NOT be disappointed.
Look how beautiful that board looks!
The game will be coming to kickstarter soon so keep an eye out for a full review soon :)
As always, Thank you very much for reading and a special thank you to Nathan and his team for allowing me to play this!
