Akropolis by Gigamic and Hachette BoardGames Coming Soon

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.

The Transformers: Robots in Disguise #11 Review

CYBERTRON IS ABOUT TO EXPLODE! Tensions ratchet up between AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS as violence breaks out in the heart of the city… and PROWL looks for someone to blame. Is DIRGE a convenient target-or the key to what comes next? Plus an old "friend" comes back home.

Cover/Solicit - 5/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the solicit/cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the solicit/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 - 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 - 5

- What can I say this probably my favorite IDW Transformers series out of the three. Regeneration One I believe suffers from what I'll call nostalgia, it was good in the 80's and doesn't  necessarily translate well now, and More than Meets the Eye's writing during the last story arc was just confusing. For this issue I love the cover art, especially the one of Arcee. The art in this issue is also superior to that in MTMTE. Overall this issue worked for me, it continues Bumblebee's leadership on Cybertron and Starscream's dreams of power after being informed by a Metrotitan that he will be the Transformers savior. We discover in the issue that while some Decepticons are playing ball and keeping the peace, Shockwave, Soundwave and a few others are causing problems. Prowl once again has to go behind Bumblebee's back and conspires with Starscream to send Arcee on another assassination mission. This was a great story and worth reading. I can't wait for next month's with the return of Megatron.
