EVE Conquest - Review
Today's slow and complicated game is EVE: Conquest. It's based on a video game (strike one) and is published by White Wolf (strike two). Yet somehow it still manages to hit a double. Not a home run, certainly, and if you're playing with two people, it's a humiliating strike-out, but get four people around the table who want to spend some time creating extraordinarily long-term strategies and planning out every nuance of a thoroughly complex chain of events, and you'll wind up having a good time.

As Matt Drake's article from a couple of weeks ago already told y'all, CYCLADES is pretty good. More than that, I'd go so far as to call it the best game I've played this year to date. It's an easy to play, fun game that really does a lot more than you'd expect it would given its brief rules and abstractions. Hell, there's even tribute-paying auctions in the game and they're still thematic and fun. I love that it's a very slender design, not packed full of rules blubber and extraneous components...it's tight, focused, and gets right down to...
