Superbeings Jumbo Card Game Review (prepublished version)

There is no such thing as “natural evolution” in the future. Science can now grow entirely new species, augment bodies with powerful new abilities, and have found a way to make robots sentient. War and destruction is everywhere, but a few fight a battle on a different level, championing their various factions in duels. The loser is put in the ground. The winner is that much closer to controlling the universe. Continue reading

Macroscope Game Review

The story goes a little something like this. A group of blind men encounter an elephant for the first time. Touching individual parts, they all identify it as something other than elephant.

Your survival depends on knowing more than others. But even the weakest mosquito can take out the strongest lion if the timing is right. Continue reading
