In the retro-future Hometown USA known as Rocketville, there’s no greater honor or privilege than holding the office of Mayor- the goal of this fast-paced game of luck and strategy. Traveling from district to district via rocket, players campaign for votes- making promises, garnering endorsements, and recruiting robotic assistance- in a mad dash to win the popular vote and the game.
Recovering hobo, one-time actor and street corner philosopher, now trying to enjoy the less fine things in life (like everyone else does).
One thing has been nearly constant in my life - gaming. Even before discovering wargames (at the tender age of 10 or so - purely fortuitous), I would play out family games (including the 3M series) solitaire. But, life situations interfered not too long ago, and I was largely without board gaming for the better part of a decade. The last couple of years have seen me devoting myself to the hobby again - and learning a lot of the newer designs - so, I'm looking from the eyes of an old grognard (ah, how I fought against THAT term when first used on me) but an open mind and willingness to see if newer games appeal.
