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. The further down the construction site the tile is, the more stone you'll need to pay to take it. Immediately add the tile to your city, either expanding outward or stacking higher. Once all tiles hav

Iron Man 3


So I went and saw Iron Man 3 last night and was extremely pleased. Like I mentioned in my review of Iron Man 3 Prelude, you really don't need it read it to know what's happening in the movie. The only parts of the comic that are related are the 10 rings (that isn't really explained in detail), the Mandarin attempting to get War Machine's specs, and Tony's Iron Army. Overall the story was great even with the twist in the middle. I've never read Extremis story, but it seemed like that part of the movie might have been changed. They also changed War Machine into the Iron Patriot, which in the comics is Norman Osborn during Dark Reign. Then again because these are based on the Ultimate Universe vs. the Earth-616 so it could still be creative licensing with the Cinematic Universe. I probably fall into the field of simply didn't care in ComicVine's Comic Book Question of the Week Results: Iron Man 3's Twist. It really didn't make or break the movie for me. While yes I would have enjoyed seeing the movie without it, what they did with A.I.M. the Mandarin and Aldrich Killian. I also enjoyed the personalized and humanized Tony this time. The entire movie is not Iron Man vs. the bad guys, but Tony Stark vs. himself, the events from The Avengers, and the bad guys. For most of the movie you don't see him in his suit, this I find as a breath of fresh air. What makes this better is the impact when the Iron Man Army shows up even better. This is a must see in my eyes.

Did you see the movie? What did you think?
