Jools Thomas post article on the Osaka Game Market 2014 at the end of May. In the article, Thomas recaps the trip and highlights. One of which, Akindo, a medieval negotiating game published by Product Arts was a huge hit. In addition Thomas states "Akindo is a beautifully produced game with minimalist graphic design and luscious real metal coins. Players make blind bids on cards available for auction each turn. Acquiring these cards allows you to win at game end through a set collection mechanism and also determine your odds of getting money via the dice roll at the start of each turn. What really sets this game apart and makes it worthwhile is the fascinating veto mechanism. If a majority of the players are unhappy with how the dice roller divvied up the dice, then the whole turn is vetoed and the role of the dice roller moves on. A really fun game."
