Future – 2017

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

Quite a bit late, but I am back to have a look at the year ahead and what games I’m excited to play (and buy). Hopefully it’ll be more of the former than the latter. Eek!

Board Games

The game I’m probably most exited to get my hands on is First Martians: Adventures on the Red Planet by Ignazy Trzewiczek and Portal Games. Mars was the big new board game theme last year and in the end the

Neuroshima Hex iPad Review

Posted on January 19th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Neuroshima Hex iPad and iPhoneIn 2015 I got my first chance to play the Neuroshima Hex board game. It’s a game that’s been around for many years, yet I’ve never got around to trying it. I’m usually not one for abstract games, so it wasn’t too high on my radar to being with. However I kept hearing rumblings about […]

Past – 2016

Posted on December 31st, 2016 under , . Posted by

Another year behind us and it’s time to have a look back at what came and didn’t come to pass during my 2016 gaming year (I’ll simply refrain from talking about all the horrible non-gaming related stuff that has been going on and focus on the fun stuff!). As always the board games far outweighs miniature and roleplaying games, but that is only to be expected. So let’s get stuck in with the top

Shadows of Camelot

Posted on December 9th, 2016 under . Posted by

It’s not quite the hottest game at the moment but I fancied upgrading the components. This has to be the quickest job I’ve ever done, probably between 5 to 7 hours. I didn’t bother with the mold lines on the catapults and rushed right through it. This is so much better than grey plastic though. Models are a bit weird, some OK some meh…

Pas vraiment le jeu de plateau a la mode en ce moment mais j’avais envie de peindre les minis. Ce fut mega-rapide, peut être 5-6 heures de travail en total. Je n’ai même pas nettoyé les catapultes…C’est bien mieux que le plastic a l’arrivée même si les figurines sont vraiment inégales.
