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've been thinking about getting Murder City...

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).

I like Chris Shy's art, too.
