Charm City Blues Judging

The judges play Charm City Blues! Annalisa is intrigued by the noire genre, but Mike thinks the turns aren't exciting enough. All the judges agree that The Wire is a great show, and for some reason Luke has a sword.

I am kind of glad that the Judges are being more harsh on these games than it seemed the playtesters did. Because of the different format in the previous season there wasn't a strong "this game is very developed" feeling beyond the judges saying so (ie: thing we can judge for ourselves). This season the games just look so much more unfinished rules-wise, which is echoed so far by the judges. I really hope to see one which the judges like, though!

As a fan of both co-op games (Pandemic rulez!) and everything crime/noir, this is the game that interests me the most. I just hope that they can refine it into something more strategic than "can you roll a 5 or 6?", because the Dice Deity put me on their naughty list a long time ago, and constantly failing would suck any joy out of the theme for me.

I think the creator does need to go back and take a close look at Arkham Horror/Mansions of Madness type games to really suss out what makes those games work, mechanics-wise. The concept was definitely interesting, and I could see the game work, but I agree with the judges that the current mechanics are just not there.

I know I'm chiming in a little late here, but Bradley Rains has nailed the music once more. He somehow (again!) has pulled off the 1-2 combo of being both thematically appropriate and also giving an eargasm to listeners.

How he keeps on doing this like a boss, I'll never know. Thank god for that one slightly drunken email that helped to bring Bradley and LRR together.
