Round and Round

It’s really true that everything old is new again. I happened upon a news article on regarding a new game coming from Fantasy Flight called Warhammer: Diskwars:

In August, we announced the upcoming release of Warhammer: Diskwars. This ferocious, fast-paced tabletop wargame allows two to four players to contest tumultuous battles with some of the Old World’s mightiest heroes and most iconic units.

Sounds like it could be fun, right? Here’s an image of said game:

Colorful circles o’ war game fun!

But wait… These seem awfully familiar. Does anybody remember Clout Fantasy? Here’s a little reminder:

Clout Fantasy

Holy crap! It’s been done before!

Yes, I believe the two bear a striking resemblance. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for breathing new life into an old game. It’s just in this case it’s not exactly an old game; it’s only been eight years since Clout made its debut. This just feels a bit like picking the corpse before it’s cold.
