For this special Quick Look episode of The Long View, I examine the game Police Precinct including an overview and review of this new cooperative game from designer Ole Steiness from Common Man Games. Along the way, I compare and contrast this new offering with such cooperative classics as Pandemic, Shadows over Camelot, and the more recent Flash Point Fire Rescue. Finally, we get the perspective of a special guest and young gamer, Sophia, who shares her opinions about what makes this game different from others in this genre.
The Long View : Police Precinct
Westeros is a dangerous place, it is a land ruled by strength and cunning. It is a land where your allies can become your enemies and your enemies should fall to your blade. It is a land where a man’s name can yield him riches beyond comprehension or have him killed by a stranger. In this game based on George R.R. Martin’s beloved universe you play one of six houses and attempt to conquer Westeros. Alliances will be forged and broken, because when you play the Game of Thrones you win or you die.
