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 Indigo Tribe Reviews @DCComics Larfleeze #6


Here is today's Guest Review by LiquidCross from The Indigo Tribe for DC Comics' Larfleeze #6. I have also added my rating after each review. If you have any questions about my rating or want to discuss anything just leave me a comment.

Larfleeze #6 - The Orange God!


Now that Larfleeze is a living power battery, how will his former corps recharge its rings! The Orange Lanterns are prepared to pry open Agent Orange to find out!

Orange Lanterns on a Rampage!


As the Orange Lanterns continually argue over how to deal with their captive Larfleeze, the living power battery himself has visions of what appears to be his mother. She explains that his memory is a mess due to billions of years of abusing the orange light, but she also tells him that the light is truly his. Those freed Orange Lanterns are still his property, since he’s the one who created their rings in the first place. With this, Larfleeze awakens in a furious rage, and easily retakes their rings and his own. The Orange Lanterns would prefer death to enslavement, but Larfleeze will give them neither: he maroons them on their planetoid to slowly waste away, and sets off to rebuild his Corps. Meanwhile, the Wanderer and Stargrave locate the Council of Ten, and plan to infiltrate their footsoldiers.

I was very surprised at how good this issue was. Nearly all of the comedy is gone, and Larfleeze’s proper origin as a native of Ogatoo is restored. We also finally find out where this story takes place in the timeline; it’s a few months after Larfleeze’s invasion of Oa. (Which technically would place it in the near future, but that’s fine.)

I’m wondering if these critical story points were finally addressed due to editors stepping in. If true, this would be one of the few times where editorial interference was beneficial! More to the point, this would be an example of editors doing their job correctly; that is, finding and correcting errors instead of massively changing the stories to fit sales projections, personal preferences, and the like. But that’s all idle speculation on my part.
