Osprey Games has another lavish-looking board game on the cards for 2022. Set against the backdrop of the 10th-Century Middle East, Crescent Moon is a tense game of negotiations and political intrigue.

At the core of Crescent Moon is a new ambitious asymmetrical area control game. Each player in this four-to-five player experience takes control of one of five unique factions with their own way of marching to victory.

"As the sun rises over the deserts, rivers, and oases of the 10th century Middle East, an uneasy balance has been upset. Ambitious sultans sit in their golden palaces, presiding over great architectural works. Secretive cults work to undermine the central authorities and advance their agenda through an expansive network of agents. Nomadic tribes aim to sow discord in order to secure employment for their experienced mercenary citizenry. Hordes of foreign invaders sweep through the land, chasing after promises of plunder. And in the face of chaos and uncertainty, the caliphate aim to preserve order through military might."

Playing out over 180 minutes, this game seems like it is going to be a fascinating experience. I like that they seem to be mixing together fighting for control of the land with a bit of backstabbing and intrigue at the same time.

I am also very taken by any game that comes with wooden pieces and a cloth bag. If I know Osprey Games, this is going to look lavish. I am very eager to see how this game plays and I am already sold on the artwork by Navid Rahman.

Are you going to be keeping an eye on this one?
