District Noir by Pandasaurus Games Coming Soon

Pandasaurus has announced a new 2 player set collection game District Noir is coming this summer. Preorders will start on May 19th with retail release planned for July 19th. District Noir was originally published in Japanese by Taikikennai Games in 2016 as Throne and Grail. It was then published in 2019 as Chocolate Factory by Nasza Księgarnia in Polish. The current art and theme was published last year in French by Spiral Éditions. When the time is right, gain control! At the head of the city’s largest criminal organizations, men and women fight to control territories and gain support by trying every means possible to grow their influence. Control of the District Noir, a central and highly contested area, remains the major issue that will make all the difference in dominating the city. There are two paths to victory: win over District Noir's various supports, or directly control the city’s three strategic locations. Before players can claim these, they must be played to the center

Story - 5/5

- 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 - 4.3

- I've enjoyed what IDW has done with all of it's reboot series like Transformers and G.I. Joe, and TMNT is no exception. The cover for this issue is intriguing with Slash looming over the turtles, while nothing special it would draw my attention. The art for this series has not been to my liking. I understand why but I still don't like it. Luckily this is the last issue with Kuhn. The only TMNT issue that I hated the art more was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Annual 2012, and I have never cared for Eastman's art. This issue continues the battle in the turtles new base from the last issue. It's nice to see the interactions of the turtles with another mutant and to see Leonardo try to reason with him. This issue also delves into the personalities of the turtles, for example how Michelangelo is kind and cares about others even though he is a goofball, and how Leo even though he can seem callus is actually very deep and knows he has to keep his emotions in check to be a Ninja. Overall I enjoy where this series is going and highly recommend it to everyone.
