Bloodless But Hexy: Gobbowl

Remember Dofus? I don't know if it really appealed to our target demographic of landed gentry and high ranking naval officers, but it is a cartoony, apparently hugely popular and somewhat adorable French MMO that has already spawned a strategy role playing spinoff, Wakfu, and developers Ankama are now releasing a free browser-based tactical game based on a sport in Dofus' world. Is Dofus' world actually Dofus? I don't know and I don't intend to find out right now. Instead, I'm going to drop a trailer and tutorial for Gobbowl right here and inform you that it will be playable on the 26th of this month.

I wasn't interested, I wasn't interested at all. And then, out of nowhere, HEXES! Then I was interested. It's free. It has graphics that don't completely irritate my eyes. It has hexes. It's turn-based. I'll end up trying it, I know I will. It may become a guilty pleasure.

Here's another video, which shows more details of the rules and tactics. Be warned though, there is an emotionless swearing youngster narrating.
