Pencil First Games are dropping in with an antidote to all that war, blood and guns that we've been talking about over the past few days. Take a moment, chill out and see what you make of this tease for The Whatnot Cabinet.

The Whatnot Cabinet - Pencil First Games

The game is designed by Eduardo Baraf, Steve Finn, Keith Matejka and features artwork from Kim Robinson, Beth Sobel which is why it already looks incredibly beautiful and we've only seen the cover!

The focus of the game is about the joy of discovering and collecting unusual and intriguing objects when you're out in the wilderness. But, the game comes in when you have to work out how to assemble those items into the perfect curio collection.

As the game plays out you will collect wonderful little objects and score points for creating the best whatnot cabinet. You will score more points for sets of like objects, different ones and also various unique set-ups which are presented to you during gameplay.

The main mechanics are set collection (makes sense) and tile placement so it already feels like it is going to be a nice and accessible game which might appeal to those who haven't really looked at board games before.

It looks like the game might be headed to Kickstarter so watch this space if it has caught your eye!
