Not actual real life games, but things that could one day become games.

Seems interesting. Not sure how I feel about the requirement of an app to play the game. Not that we don't have them available at all times, it's just a little strange and different. I fear change.

$60 seems reasonable for a top tier board game including:
1 Game board
16 XCOM soldiers
8 Interceptors
24 UFOs
5 Custom dice
More than 200 cards and tokens

I'm very interested in how it plays. The box says it takes 1-2 hours.

I was talking with a friend online and they say there's another game "Golem Arcana" that has a similar mechanic and he says it does a good job(Larry obviously can see the convo ;)). Hopefully it'll be at Gencon and we'll get some more info. Looks like it could be a really fun Co-Op game the only thing I'm not jazzed about is 4 player but given the scope and focus it seems like more then 4 would get crazy quick.
