that was kind of my thought.  Like, this would a funny prototype for a webcast skit, but I can't fathom actually spending money it

Well... speaking of deck-builders...

Xenoshyft Onslaught looks like it could be an interesting co-op/solitaire deck-builder.  The artwork looks amazing, hopefully the gameplay is of similar quality.  No wood construction.. just killing aliens with sweet sci-fi tech to mine their unobtanium.  ;)





The Kickstarters are getting the goods right now so it should be on shelves before long (beginning of May).

I actually have this one on pre-order, however I think it is a while before it drops to the non-backers.

Xenoshyft is in stores now, FYI.

Ordered after watching the 'How To Play' vid by Rodney today:






The basic deck-building part reminds me of Thunderstone and some others, but instead of wiping all the cards you've played every turn, they can stay in play and fight to the death.  Maybe a bit of a defensive Space Hulk: Death Angel style to it also?  It's different enough to pique my solitaire interest, plus the theme & artwork looks great.
