Snippets from the Week: 1

Murder City is a lot of fun. Unlike most games that recommend three or more players (most of the SJGames card catalogue, f'rex) the whole thing doesn't fall a bit flat when played with just two people.

Also, the bit about making up the details of the crime? Fantastic. Sure, it can be a complete arse, but it adds a bit of Once Upon A Time to what is otherwise a fairly straightforward resource allocation game, and allows that human effort to shine in the auditor's decision. And it gave us (well, me) a chance to ham it up. "Submitted for your approval..."

Finally, I'm probably alone in really liking Chris Shy's art in general. For MC, it adds the perfect look and feel.

I got it in a bundle deal with Mwahahahaha. Haven't played the latter game--J.'s more a crime nut than a comedy-mad-scientist fan (though hopefully enough Futurama will cure that).
