Sid Meier's Civilization: A New Dawn

Saturday. How wonderful a day. I hope you're taking advantage of it. I ran a bunch of errands this morning. Now I'm working on painting, of all things. I can't tell you the last time I painted minis. It's been quite a while.

But while I wait for this color to dry, lets get you the reviews I know you all so desperately desire.

This week, we have articles on: Alphas Volume #1, Lucky's Misadventures, Act of Treason, Wildcatters, Konja, Hero Realms: Ruin of Thandar, Hunt for the Ring, Decrypto, Minute Realms, Civilization: New Dawn, and Star Trek Adventures.

Saturday and I have all the baking to do. Baking for friends. Baking for coworkers. Baking for friends that are coworkers. Baking for coworkers that are friends.
I mean, I bought 4 pounds of unsalted butter. I'm going to be busy today.
But before I get up to my elbows in cookie dough, I need to type up those review articles I know you all so desperately desire.

Today we have: Arena Rex, Seikatsu, New York Slice, Dragonfire, Sid Meier's Civilization: A New Dawn, Macroscope, Kingdomino, and 1750: Britain vs. France.

Civilizations love to build great works to show off their wealth and power. Be it grand buildings like the Eiffel Tower, or massive structures like the Great Wall, or fantastic gardens like those in Babylon, they all make a grand statement to the world. In Sid Meier's Civilization: A New Dawn, you'll be able to create such works as part of your civilization. In this preview, Fantasy Flight Games gives us a look on how those work and what bonuses you get for having them.
I have a degree in history. I made quite a study of various ancient civilizations, as well as saw just the general flow of history. Of course, with the knowledge of what has happened, it's easy to look back and go, "Man... I sooo would've done that differently!" Well, that's what you get to do in Sid Meier's Civilization: A New Dawn, a new game in the vaunted game series. Will you make the world better, or just conquer everything you can get your hands on?
