Je vous l’ai mentionné l’année dernière mais la fin de semaine que je passe au Comiccon est ma préférée. Des costumes flamboyants, une ambiance fébrile, des célébrités et des avant-premières vidéoludiques font en sorte que l’évènement est unique parmi tous les autres à Montréal.

Hell, it’s about time!
I’ve been writing for Jestermind since last November. The last time I wrote anything board game-related, it was snowing outside. Well, this doesn’t mean much since we still had snow a month ago.

It’s both a pity and a shame because, as of January, I’m supposed to be the coordinator of the comic book and board game departments. To repay my debts towards you, dear readers, I shall kill two birds with one stone. You heard me right : tonight’s review is about a board game set in the world of comic book superheroes. Got your attention, my fellow sidekicks? In that case, welcome to astonishing macrocosm of Sentinels of the Multiverse! Continuer la lecture de Review : Sentinels of the Multiverse (Board game)

However, these translations often cost a lot of money and some independent game developers cannot afford these costs, leading to the publishing of these games exclusively in English and making them more accessible because the retail price of the English versions if often lower than the French version. Fortunately for some of us that are bilingual, we can speak both languages and we have the chance to experience these games that are WAY better in Shakespeare’s tongue.
