1st Impressions: The Ravens of Thri Sahashri

This is an interesting asymmetrical puzzle game for two players. One person plays Ren who is coma sleepy thus can't speak, and has to still give clues about what card colors they have hidden. The other player gets to play Feth, who also probably shouldn't talk, but has to chase away ravens through the art of puzzling up groups of 7's.

This game is harder than it seems at first, in part because the rules aren't the best, and you also get more rules as the story goes on, plus switching sides does really give you a unique game experience.  We are six games in and still looking foreward to finishing off the story, however I'm about ready to give it a break and try something different, because I'm not a huge co-op game fan.

Are you playing through just to finish the story or do you think you would want to play a couple more games anyway?

Right now I'd like to finish the story, but there is enough challange that it would be fun to take out now and then to play at a coffee shop.  The one down side is that I don't see it as a game that I'd want to bring out and teach to someone new, unless they really wante to invest in replaying it quite a bit.

Gotcha, does done game effet the next in any way or is it just the narrative that links them?

There are three 'unlockable' cards that give you new rules and goals to unlock the next card. From what I can tell the new rules just bring the current version up to the difficulty of the original version.

I see, so it's kind of a tutorial campaign?

I'd say you could call it that, but the goals are hard enough to not feel like a tutorial at least.

That's good, just kind of eases you in a little

I've never heard of this one! Doesn't seem like my style of game either, but it looks kinda interesting.
