Despite P3 paints getting a mixed response (no pun intended), P3 will become a full hobby line this year, including brushes, other tools, and Privateer’s first standalone painting guides. Even harder to comprehend, except from a pure game-design standpoint – Matt Wilson’s minis rules have always set the hobby’s standard for a certain elegant kind of “gamey-ness” in my opinion – is the announcement of a card game, for summer release, titled Infernal Contraption. There might be ways to package this to make it appealing as a product, but man are they ever stepping into an overcrowded arena with this game. I don’t know if we need more monster-y, fantasy-ish standalone card games for the next while. But I will be happy to be proved wrong if this game turns out to have legs.
