That picture above all these words? That's a prototype board for Jason Rohrer's recently-announced, Majesco-published DS game "about diamond trading in Angola on the eve of the passage of the Kimberly Process." Rohrer is keeping gameplay details close to his chest but has revelealed that it will be a two-player, turn-based strategy game.

And now I'm torn: I'm abysmal at strategy games but interested in the game's concept. What to do?

In any case, even if Rohrer hadn't spilled the (garbonzo) beans about his yet-untitled game being strategy-oriented, the Go pieces kind of give it away, given that Go is probably the oldest and most influential strategy game in history. The other pieces you see are pennies (obviously) and chick peas (gross). You can also see three maps of Angola and a bunch of calculators, but I'd be presuming too much if I made any predictions about how this will actually play out (narratively or mechanically) in the finished game.

Rohrer is still "ironing out" the design and was certified as a Nintendo developer last month. He's also making every bit of the game -- down to the box art -- by himself.
