Greyridge Games announced tgat the award-winning Weirdwood Manor app and book series will be made into a board game. Weirdwood Manor: The Board Game is a cooperative game of adventure and strategy for 1 to 5 players from ages 14+ and takes 90 - 120 minutes to play. You’ll battle against 1 of 3 unique magical Fae Monsters and their Clockwork Scarabs invading the Manor. Offering high variability and replayability, the game features a unique temporal mechanic that reflects the magical, ever-shifting corridors and rooms of the Manor.

Avengers Assemble #9 Review

Cover - 3/5

Would I pick-up the comic based on the cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 4/5

Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Color/Ink - 5/5

Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening?

Layout - 5/5

Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 3/5

Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story arc? How well did the issue further develop the characters?

Verdict - 3.7

What I think: The cover for this issue really doesn't say much. It's just another pose shot of the Avengers that are appearing in the issue (well except Captain America should be replaced with Thor). I also don't care for most of the variant issues, mainly because they are Movie tie-in covers that have zero to do with the actual comic. I like the art style, even though it at times doesn't portray everyone exactly as we have seen them before, you still know who they are. The problem I have with this issue is similar to the rest of the series, its too corny for my taste. I told that the old Guardians comics have always been like this so I figured I'd hang in there to find out. So far it seems like nothing major is happening with this arc, its just Tony and Bruce trying to one-up each other because Bruce one a Futurist award over Tony. I'll hold out for the next issue, hopefully the writing gets better or something major occurs to keep me interested.
