Hachette Games and Gigamic announced the upcoming tile placement game Akropolis will be coming to the US on July 1st 2022. "Construct the most prestigious Akropolis and develop cohesive districts for your citizens. As you create new buildings, you will expand your city - either spreading out or building up. The higher your stacks of tiles, the more valuable the buildings! Just make sure you don't run out of stone; it's a finite and valuable resource for every architect!" Gameplay Overview Take on the role of an architect and build your own akropolis in ancient Greece. Try to construct districts of similar buildings and stack them high to increase their value. Add plazas as multipliers for even more points! Each turn, choose an available tile and add it to your city.

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #184 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 - 4/5

- 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 - 3.4

- What I think: I really don't care for the cover of this issue. It's Zarana and Road Pig who are in the story are not really a prominent figure, it's also the 4th cover in a row with a profile shot. Added to that the RI cover isn't anything special either. The are in the book is following the nostalgia feel from the original G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero by Marvel but that also leads to the issue I have with the layout, it just feels bland at times. What can I say about the story, nothing really happens. COBRA is still setting up their new base of operations in California, while the Joe's are on the hunt for Darklon. I'm not entirely sure why I keep reading this series, I guess again for the nostalgia of the 80's and for those few shining moments where the comic gets interesting.
