I’ve just pimped my copy of Santorini by painting the 3 sets of characters. These are probably the worst miniatures I’ve painted since the “Fury of Dracula” ones. I don’t understand why they went with such small models, I really believe the game would look better with bigger models. Anyway, it’s an abstract game and they do the job I guess. Paint job was quick, I just wanted 3 different colours easily differentiated.

Je viens de finir les figurines du jeu de plateau “Santorini”. C’est vraiment pas jojo comme modèles, les pires depuis la “Furie de Dracula”. Je ne comprends pas pourquoi ils ont utilises des figurines si petites, le jeu serait vraiment plus chouette avec une autre échelle..bref, le jeu fonctionne quand même et est super.

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 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
