Today I took the opportunity to have a couple of games of The Department. The first go was largely uneventful, the second less so. It is the second game which is reported here:
All in all I felt it had a lot of potential. There were a couple of gaps in the rules and NPC AI, which was a little dissapointing. If the AI was actual software, it would have crashed a couple of times, but a couple of tweaks sorted it out. I am surprised this wasn't picked up in playtesting though. All in all, however, a good game and I look forward to more.
