    Wot the?

    Do you run that backwards and forwards through a machine translator a number of times, or have you been hacked?

      The review is in Klingon…

        of course! 10 points for Mikko

        Well, this isn’t our usual thing because normally we only do reviews of English language versions of games, but in this case we’re making an exception. While at the Gathering of Friends this spring, a number of our writers were given some advanced copies of the upcoming expansion to Decrypto.

        The Klingons are most recognized for having aggressive, war-like behavior. Combat is their defining characteristic. They developed a bladed weapon called the bat’leth, and their culture values victory in combat above all else. Their greeting and even mating is all about violence and brutality.

        Sure, they are a made up race of beings from a television show from my youth – but The Klingon language has become the most popular fictional language in the world. It began as a few simple words developed by James Doohan, the actor who played Scotty on the Original Series. It was later developed by Marc Okrand in a more complex language. An official Klingon dictionary was published, and fans have learned to speak it, and even translated books such as Hamlet and The Epic of Gilgamesh into Klingon.

        And, now, there is a boardgame expansion for the Klingons to enjoy. We’ve tried to play it, but frankly, none of us can read pIqaD. As a result, we made weird grunting noises and then hoped to interpret our partners grunting noises as the right answer. Of course, we stuck to regular human norms for victory and we declined to take the ritual sacrifice of the losers (which is what normal green blooded Klingons would do).

        I can’t say that it is that much fun given that I can’t read any of the cards, but hey, someone out there will buy it I guess. I really have no idea what would have motivated them to make this deck of cards, but to each their own. For now, this deck will live in my Decrypto box and await some re-gifting opportunity for a Trekkie gamer friend.
