#193: Praga Caput Regni


We have become feature-hungry here at SVWAG. We debut Walker’s Language Corner which, let us be frank, is not apt to be repeated, especially given Walker’s aversion to dead languages. We finally name a recurring segment that has been airing unaccredited for years, and we have dubbed in Mark’s Rage Theatre. It is Festivus every day of the year, and Mark has some grievances to air.

Praga Caput Regni is one of only two games I’d like to re-add to my collection. I got a good price on a copy close to its release but it ended up as trade fodder when I could recoup my costs and nab something a bit rare. It’s also one of only a handful of games that really sucked me in purely on the hook of its unique mechanism.

[EDIT] Good to hear nice things about Sheepy Time here too.

I’ve been keen on Sheepy Time since I saw it on Space-Biff
