Imhotep! Imhotep! Imhotep! A Double-Take Review of... Imhotep!

Today we're going to roll up our sleeves and get to work. What are we working on? Well, we're building some of the biggest, baddest, stone structures the world has ever seen. Of course, we recommend you leave Brendan Fraser out of the equation. Imhotep is an area-control game where players taking stones from a quarry, loading them on ships, and sailing them down the river to be used in the construction of some of the most iconic wonders in Egypt. So, is Imhotep a brick house, or does it leave us screaming for our mummies? Let's find out!

Keyforge - What's a Quadrillion!?

Keyforge - What's a Quadrillion!?

Some of the biggest news to come out of Gen Con is from Fantasy Flight, and one of the biggest, most epic, colossal  names in game design: Richard Garfield. (He designed this little card game called Magic the Gathering, maybe you've heard of it?) The title I'm talking about today is Keyforge. Keyforge: Call of the Archons (to be accurate), is a 1 vs. 1 card game where players are racing to forge keys (get it? Key.... Forge?) that unlock the vaults of an artificial work at the center of the universe... Ok, ok, that’s a paper thin theme, but what's fascinating, mind-blowing, and seemingly near impossible here is the fact that the game features decks, that are completely, 100% unique. As the Fantasy Flight website says "What this means for KeyForge is that every deck in existence is utterly unique and different from every other deck."

So Long, Mocking Bird... A Single-Take Review of Grackles

So Long, Mocking Bird... A Single-Take Review of Grackles

First of all, if you get that Mono Puff reference, YOU WIN! (There are no actual prizes, though...) 

Anyway. In Texas (and most southern states) there is a species of birds known as Grackles. They're black, with an iridescence about them that can make them also appear blue, purple, and even greenish in color. They're known for gathering, or should I say laughing, on telephone lines. (Okay, that's the last Mono Puff reference...) 

Grackles is an abstract game for 2-4 players that will have you trying to line up the most of your bird tokens on the modular board. Once the game is over, the player with the most tokens on the board wins.

So is Grackles the kind of fun you want to line up for? Or should we just shoo it away? Let's find out!
