Unboxing Mercante, from AEG

The last (so far) in the Tempest series of unboxing videos. Mercante, from Jeff Tidball, put you in control of a merchant house and sends you to do business and become the greatest in Tempest.

Something that’s probably easier said than done!

Unboxing: Dominare, from AEG

Another game in the city of Tempest game from Alderac Entertainment Group, Dominare.

Designed by Jim Pinto, Dominare puts the players in the place of conspirators aiming to control the city. Use your agents and expand your influence and control the metropolis that many say is the biggest city in the world.

Unboxing Courtier

One of the games from AEG based in the city of Tempest, Courtier will have you take the place of an influence broker who’s mission is to manipulate the elite of the city and get them do what you need them to.

Needless to say this is a rather competitive game, and it is for 2 to 4 players to enjoy. Or endure if you’re the loser.

The box looks seriously lovely from the outside, but is the game worth the money you have to pay to get your hands on it?
