That board game WizKids was going to do

Yup. Tsuro looks very decent, probably more tactical and tense than the games it reminds you of… and for the components, the price is certainly right. But I can’t help but wonder if this is really where WizKids should go. I mean, for all the crap we give them, they are actually pretty much doing all the right things right now: experimenting a lot, phasing out old products gradually, and developing successful ones sensibly. But the “family” board game market is crowded, muddled, and not a place where one can make a big splash without considerable marketing moxie. And maybe that’s exactly what they’ll bring to bear… if they didn’t already blow all their margin on those nice components. Streets in September.
