I've already lied to you: this isn't a review of Blackbar. At least, there isn't going to be any number at the end. This is because Blackbar isn't really a game.

There's a wonderful mystery hidden in the game mechanics of Brief History of the World. The game involves players controlling empires for a single turn and then retiring them (much as one does in Small World) to go and play an entirely different civilization.
