Scott Nicholson — a familiar face to folks who spend any time at BoardGameGeek.com, and the man behind “Board Games with Scott” — did a few dozen quick reviews of games being played at BGG’s big convention in Dallas a couple weeks ago.
In one of these ambush-style interview, he talks with some folks playing Space Mission.
While I won’t comment on Scott’s fun-but-condescending tone (or did I just?), I thought the gentleman being interviewed seemed rather positive about game, which is targeted at Schmidt Spiele’s prime market — German family gamers. I’m pretty sure the game (especially with the Black Hole removed) will be too light for most BGG-type gamers. But I think it works very well as a gateway game.
In any case, Scott sums it up with the not-completely-negative phrase: “Mostly Harmless”.
Ah, pride. 🙂
