Eagle Games Continues Horribly Miscegenating Nature's Design

By which I mean that they‘ve licensed another popular strategy PC game to turn into one of their signature big-box, lotsa-plastic throwdowns. We first saw their gorgeous board-game conversion of Sid Meier’s Civilization at Origins (it appears to have been delayed somewhat, it now being the end of September). Now they’ve announced Age of Mythology, a game based on the Microsoft’s releasing to follow up the Age of Empires line. The board game is set to release next spring (although schedules already look a little funny – at the time of this posting, the relevant press release is itself late). Here’s hoping Eagle meets with more success with this license than Journeyman did. I hope to rustle up some fans of the first Civ computer game to try the board game when it arrives.
