Because of the following announcement from GMT, I think it prudent to give Cyrano some space so he may grieve appropriately.

From GMT's June 2022 newsletter:

P500 Removals. In mutual agreement with the design team, we are removing Mystery Wizard from the P500 list today. This game probably wasn't the best fit for the GMT line, as the stalled P500 numbers would attest, and once we lost the dedicated artist for the game after only a few card images, we were just not able to find an artist up to taking on the whole project. Although Mystery Wizard unfortunately didn't work out for us, I still believe in both the game (it's fun!) and the team of talented young designers and developers who created it. I wish them all the best as they work to get the game published with another publisher. Once that happens and there is an order page up for it, I'll make an announcement in our monthly update and link to the new publisher's page so that those of you who want the game will know where to order it.

Awww. And it had hexes, too.

A good idea, in theory.  As ever, though, I am skeptical about its efficacy.

Funny, I see review bombing on BGG all the time, especially in Ty Bomba games. He usually rates his own games a 10, and someone invariably comes in and rates it a 1 because "designers shouldn't rate their own games."  :2funny:
