Release!: The Game WTFs



  • As you all probably have heard at some point, Indeo finally shipped Release!. Basically the game is a trick taking game (e.g. Spades, Hearts) with a different scoring mechanism and only three suits.

    One of the WTFs is that the game doesn't actually fit in the box because the client who made the box Belgium ed up and didn't get the dimensions right. I think I sorta got the stuff in the box almost neat. Also, there's a TDWTF expansion

    Discuss.

    We actually should design a fake expansion based on the Discopaedia.

    P.S. Paging @apapadimoulis



  • It's a little annoying that the specialized decks where you reveal a rule card only have 6 cards so you end up playing with every rule except maybe one. Then again, I haven't actually, you know, played it yet.

    Everything does fit in the box… kinda... though you may need to remove that paper insert. It’s a little tight. It was a little frustrating, but most definitely our fault --- we should have been prototyping this stuff with the manufacturer long ahead of time. We coulda had it fixed, but this seemed ok... and I've seen worse-packaged games.

    The lack of variety is predictability ... and there tends to be a lot of that in trick-taking games; knowing what will come up isn't so bad.
