New game: The Fog of Love

Matt has purchased a new game in which a two people play a couple in love faced with challenges and difficulties. The goal is to navigate through the difficulties and win by finding true love.

Overall, I found this game fun, though I really hated the blue/pink color scheme. Any other two colors would have worked well. For the first game, I was Ken, a TV Star with a booming voice. Matt and I did not find true love and lost the game, but we are willing to try again. Though Matt will never repeat the mistake of giving me the Booming Voice card. My voice can be quite loud.

One of the best things about this game was that the tutorial was built into the first game. The game designers gave you enough information to understand the part that you were on, and then as game play progressed, another tutorial card would appear explaining what was going to happen next.

As someone who has sat through a lot of really bad explanations of how to play games, I found this to be one of the greatest board game developments since Lizzie Magie invented the game that would become Monopoly.

  1. Ooh that is very smart. Its the explanations of the game that make me don’t want to play the game. Like I hate it so much that it can deter me from wanting to play.

    1. Yeah. Me too. People are really, really bad at explaining games. If there isn’t a built in tutorial, it would almost be better for the person bringing the game to find a good YouTube video and play that instead.

      You can choose whatever gender you want so same-gender couples are fine.

  2. Oh and minus the binary based color scheme, it seems fun.

    Also can you find love with someone of the same gender?
