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.

Blue Beetle #14 - Scarabworld Review

Blue Beetle #14 Review

Blue Beetle #14 Cover
Cover - 4/5

- 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 - 5/5

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

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 5/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening? Can I easily read the lettering?

Layout/Flow - 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 - 4/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?



Verdict - 4.4

- I'm jumping into the series a little late and have only read the issues following the Green Lantern: New Guardians #9 - Beyond Hope crossover. I enjoyed this issue and the cover is a nice image of Khaji-Kai and Blue Beetle on the attack. This issue takes the Blue Beetle to Scarabworld with Khaji-Kai. Khaji wants to destroy the planet to prevent future Reach soldiers. Jaime Reyes is shocked to discover this isn't the first world Khaji has destroyed and has second thoughts about the mission. The two are capable of destroying the planet but Khaji gets left behind. The secondary story is of Blue Beetle's original Scarab host wanting to take it back. When Jaime commands Khaji Da (his scarab) to defend him, it responds that it can't hurt itself. We see the original host clinging to the escape vessel in the final scenes. As the series winds down it will be entertaining to see how this plays out.
