It's another week and another new batch of Kickstarter games for your to take in. This week we've got conspiracies, calamari, and one of the best deals on a game with miniatures we've seen in a long time. Let’s see what’s out there!Read More
In today's review Jeremiah takes a look at Armadora, an area-control, filler game for 2-4 players. In a time where the Dwarves have amassed huge stores of gold, it's a full-on free-for-all as the Elves, Orcs, Goblins, and Mages want their (unearned) piece of the pie.
You, as a player, will take control of one of the four Factions trying to nab as much gold as you can by deploying your forces and trying to block others from getting in on your action.
So is Armadora worth a golden reputation? Or should you leaf this one alone? Let's find out!Read More
For today's review Jeremiahs looks at Dungeon Raiders. It's time to bluff, slash, grab, loot, dodge, and throw your friends under the bus. Or whatever functions as a bus in fantasy world. A troll? I dunno. This metaphor is falling apart... Dungeon Raiders is a lightweight, bluffing dungeon crawler that brings a lot of cutthroat co-operative skullduggery to the table.
So should you go skulking into the dungeon with your fellow raiders? Or is this game as exciting as a gelatinous cube? Let's find out!Read More
Today Jeremiah reviews Onitama, Arcane Wonders' two-player game of martial arts tactics. Onitama was released during Origins Game Fair in 2016 and features quick play, simple mechanics, and deep strategy. So does Onitama win the tournament and get the girl? Or does it sweep the leg? Let's find out!Read More
Unless you've been in Board Game Siberia the past few years, you've heard of the Tiny Epic series of games that Gamelyn Games publishes, from designer Scott Almes.
What you may not have heard is that the next installment of the franchise is on Kickstarter right now! Tiny Epic Western is looking to wrangle up enough support to make its way into your FLGS. So is it worth a look-see or should you pull up on the reigns? Let's take a gander!Read More
Today we're going to review Pingo Pingo: Raiders of the Golden Pineapple, a new party/dexterity game from Iello. It's for 2-5 players, and features a sweet soundtrack CD, some cardboard standees, and a dart gun. Yes, that's right: a suction cup dart gun!
But enough hype, let's take a look!Read More
My (Jeremiah's) game of the year for 2014 was Tiny Epic Kingdoms, the first in the Tiny Epic line from Gamelyn games. TEK is a 4X micro game that packs a ton of gameplay into a small package. If you don't know how to play TEK, and/or want to see our thoughts on the base game, you can read our full review right here.
Heroes' Call is the first expansion in the Tiny Epic universe, which doesn't necessarily mean there will be expansions for each of the Tiny Epic games, as was explained to us in this interview.
But enough with links and other introductory statements, let's kick the tires and find out what Tiny Epic Kingdoms Heroes' Call is all about!Read More
Last year while I (Jeremiah) was at Origins Game Fair I had a chance to catch up with the fine folks at Split Second Games and they slid me a copy of Quicksilver: The Great Airship Race. It's a game about, well, racing airships for 2-6 players and the game takes about 15 minutes per player to play. So does Quicksilver soar to great heights, or does it fall flat? Let's take a look!Read More
A week ago we told you about Alderac's plans for the next Smash Up! Expansion! Well, they've released the first round of finalists and it's up to you to vote on who makes it through to the next round!Read More
Today's review is of Mr. B Games' Spurs: A Tale in the Old West, a sandbox-style game in which you decide your destiny and work your way to victory by choosing a path of virtue or infamy. Will you help the rancher wrangle up his cattle, or rob him blind!? The choice is yours in Spurs! Let's dig in!Read More
