XCOM: The Board Game Review

XCOM: The Board Game Review border=

The weird thing about XCOM The Board Game is there is no rule book. It’s one of those things you expect to find with a board game and when you first open XCOM you’ll be hunting for one and thinking Fantasy Flight Games have forgotten to put your rulebook in the box. However, there is no rulebook. XCOM is designed to be played with an app on your tablet or laptop. This isn’t some companion piece of software that helps the game run more smoothly, no, the XCOM app is integral to the game, and without the app this game just wouldn’t be XCOM.

Thunderbirds: From TV to Tabletop

Posted on March 10th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

Thunderbirds Matt Leacock and Chris Birch interview

As a kid growing up in the UK, it’s hard not to have been a fan of Gerry Anderson and his puppet based TV programs. Whether it was the aqua adventures of Stingray, the dark action of Captain Scarlet or the far future science fiction of Terrahawks, Gerry Anderson’s television shows where everything a growing boy needs; action, adventure, heroes and futuristic technology. Out of all of Gerry’s creations it’s Thunderbirds that has had the most resonance. Thunderbirds, also known as International Rescue, where made up of the Tracy family and some friends as well as an array of super high tech vehicles and rescue equipment.  International Rescue could get to a disaster, evaluate the problem, and get the necessary equipment there quicker than anyone else. Natural disasters weren’t the only adversaries that the Tracy family had to face because the malicious Hood was always on their tail.

Descent – Arachyura

Posted on March 8th, 2015 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Lately we’ve decided to paint some of our miniatures from Descent 2nd edition. The miniatures are not  high quality but their sculpt is not bad. What’s more we use them for SoBH games so they deserved to be painted.

Ostanio dla odmiany zajęliśmy się malowaniem licznych figurek do drugiej edycji gry planszowej Descent. Figurki są wykonane z trudnego w obróbce plastiku, a ich odlewy też nie są dobrej jakości. Kilka z potworów ma jednak znośną rzeźbę i z uwagi na to, że używamy je też do SoBH postanowiliśmy nadać im trochę kolorów.

RESISTOR_  Review resistor 2 player hacking card game

RESISTOR_ is a card game about hacking but is nothing like real hacking. Then again hacking as shown in the movies is nothing like real hacking. Real hacking is rather boring to watch, and rather bewildering to do. RESISTOR_ on the other hand is enormous fun, even if it does make your brain hurt some times.
