Casual Game Insider|Spring 2021
1-4 PLAYERS | 15-45 MINUTES | AGES 7+

A video game masquerading as a board game, the premise of Slide Quest is an exciting one.

On the Pitch

Soccer is a huge draw, pulling in the biggest crowds at the Rio Olympic Games in 2016, as host country Brazil finally won Gold for the first time in the men’s event. Flick-and-move veteran Subbuteo is an obvious favorite for this category, and its host of accessories even extends to Pegasus’s enormous athletics track. This large, 21-piece monstrosity that fits around the pitch was created for decorative purposes, but it’s also not beyond the imagination of the average sporting gamer to gather up a few Subbuteo players to hold their own track meet after the soccer medals have been decided.

REVINYLIZATION

Blood, Sweat & Tears began as Al Kooper’s dream of a rock band with horns. By the time he realized the concept—on the band’s 1968 debut, Child Is Father to the Man—it had become much more: an engaging hybrid of New York soul, Greenwich Village folk, and innovative jazz arrangements. With producer John Simon at the helm, Child was a virtual definition of the possibilities inherent in the heady musical experimentation of the late 1960s. Kooper’s writing and arranging for that record (including the monumental “I’ll Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know,” later a hit for Donny Hathaway) is one of the high points of his storied career. The record was justifiably praised as the conceptual breakthrough it was, and work had already begun on a follow-up when the band decided it needed a lead singer with more polish. Kooper left the group along with a couple of other key members.
