I’ve been away for a few weeks and am amazed, once again, at how fast time passes when you aren’t paying attention.

Even as I have been silent on my board game blog, I have been buying and playing games.  I recently purchased Theseus: The Dark Orbit, Tides of Time and Castellion.  I have Castellion set up and am finding more opportunity to play than the others, as it is a solo game.

This is my second solo game outing, and while I enjoyed the other one(Friday) more, this game has some inspirational things going for it.

The most striking thing about the game is the way it is presented.  You open layer after layer and find cool art at each step.  It’s definitely one of the most interesting un-boxings and has made me consider the way games are first experienced by the people opening them.

Usually, it is a jumbled mess of bits crying out for organization, but in Castellion, opening the box is a cool experience.  If nothing else, Castillion has opened my eyes to an overlooked part of the board gaming.
