Better Gaming Through Chemistry
Many of you may already be familiar with Darrell Louder’s Compounded from our mentions on The State of Games and from coverage of Cartrunk Entertainment’s Unpub events. For those who may be unfamiliar, Compounded is a game about building chemical compounds through careful management of elements, a fair bit of social play and trading, and just a bit of good old-fashioned luck. It’s fast-moving, accommodates two to five budding chemists, and is a lot of fun. We fell in love with it the very first time we played, and Darrell has spent months since then refining the gameplay and gathering tons of feedback at various Unpub events and beyond.
Darrell and Compounded will be at Origins Game Fair next week, so if any of you are planning on attending the convention, make sure you stop by the Dice Hate Me Games booth (#809 in the Exhibition Hall) and check out the newest member of the family! And we’ll be sharing much more about Compounded and when you can expect it to hit your lab tables in the coming months, so stay tuned!
