I recently got my hands on a prototype copy of Top Pop, a new board game from publisher Talon Strikes. In Top Pop, players will take control of one of five soda companies and try to establish market control in cities across the United States. The game mechanics center on area control, resource management, and bidding. The turns are very simple, there is little downtime, and the strategic tension ramps up to a pretty satisfying conclusion.

I made a few videos so that tabletop nerds can see how it plays and what our impressions were after a couple of plays. Top Pop is currently on Kickstarter, so I hope you get a chance to check it out and maybe help you to decide whether it will be a good fit for your collection. Check out the Kickstarter, here.
