Elsewhere: Raid & Trade
It isn’t often that I play truly terrible games. For the most part, my personal filter has seen enough use that it strains out the turds before they ever land on my table, like a sieve umbrella that keeps my hat smear-free. Also in this metaphor, it rains poo.
Unfortunately, every so often a wet one trumpets through the net. This time it was Raid & Trade, one of the dullest games that has ever besotted my living room. My review can be found over at Miniature Market’s Review Corner. It’s perhaps my most openly negative critique in a long time — frankly, I’m surprised they agreed to publish it. If you do take a look, take note of the unintentional hilarity to be found after the article’s conclusion.

Sort of an appropriate piece directly after Best Week.
Surely the Cora the Specialist Expansion makes it better.
For all I know, or will ever know, Cora turns Raid & Trade into Twilight Struggle.

I’ve updated the link. It changed when the site switched over to its new format — though, somehow, my ranking of the game also changed from one to four stars.
