Cthulhu CoastersWhat’s up plebes?! Cthulhu here again. The human Tony has summoned me to review something he can’t force one of his minions to review. He’s been teaching me some human slang as well.

Kingsport Festival: The Card Game Review

Posted on March 21st, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Kingsport Festival: The Card GameThe idea of taking a successful board game and creating a variation on it is nothing new. However, spin-off games can be really hit or miss. Many times they end up being a watered down version of the base game that can’t really stand on its own (Nations: The Dice Game). However, occasionally you get […]

Kickstarters of the Week: 3/20

Posted on March 20th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Kickstarters of the WeekThis was one of the harder weeks to choose our Kickstarters of the Week. Not because the choices were so limited, quite the opposite. We normally try and limit the amount of campaigns we choose (for various reasons), and this week had many quality campaigns finishing up their run. End the end, we’ve chosen the six […]

Mystic Miracles iOS Review

Posted on March 16th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Mystic MiraclesFull disclosure: I am a 7 Wonders addict. You bring out a copy of 7 Wonders and I will be willing to stop whatever I’m doing and play immediately. I don’t know what it is about that game, but I’ve never had a bad time playing it, even when I lose horribly (which seems to […]

Incorporated Review

Posted on March 15th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

IncorporatedWe’re in the era of massive, global corporations that control several aspects of how we live our lives and what our culture means. Just as it is exciting and fun to play a game of RISK imagining we’re commanding massive armies traipsing across the globe, it can be equally satisfying to manage an intercontinental corporation […]

Grand Prix Review

Posted on March 14th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Grand PrixAt my first job out of college, my boss was a massive Formula 1 fan. He would talk about the cars, the races, the teams, everything. I’ve never been much of a gear head, so I had very little exposure to sport racing up to that point. The main take away I remember from those […]

Dice Stars Review

Posted on March 10th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Dice StarsDesigners Bruno Cathala and Ludovic Maublanc have teamed up over the years to bring us quite a diverse offering of games. From the combat area control game Cyclades to simpler fair, like the Lovecraftian game Pocket Madness, my ears always perk up when I see these two pairing up with a new offering. Today we are going […]

SnowblindPleasant Company Games is doing some interesting things with dice. We reviewed their first offering a while ago, a game called Ancient Terrible Things. This Lovecraftian dice game was quite enjoyable and I tagged it in the review as “Yahtzee if Yahtzee were fun”. Well Pleasant Company Games is back on our tabletops with another dice […]

Dragoon Review

Posted on March 3rd, 2017 under , , . Posted by

DragoonDragons are easily one of the most iconic creatures from the fantasy genre. Heck, they are even 50% of the name of the most popular RPG ever. So when a new board game debuts that puts me in charge of a dragon laying waste to the countryside, I immediately take notice. Today, we are going […]
