From the Deep – A Lobotomy Expansion

Posted on May 17th, 2018 under . Posted by

Board Games – Pop Culture Icons/References trapped in an insane asylum
trying to escape from other Pop Culture Icons/References seems to be the
basis of Lobotomy the board game. I haven’t actually played the game, but
based on the large batches of minis I’ve painted for my client that’s the
general opinion I have about the game. The models are decent quality and
plentiful which is usually a good enough reason to pick up a game. (Because
if it’s awful you can always repurpose the minis right?)

Too Many Games?

Keeping Up Recently, the Dice Tower podcast has been discussing the notion that there are too many games to possibly play, review, or even process the flood of games coming at consumers and reviewers from all sides. There’s an uncertainty in … Continue reading

Stuffed Fables … Board Game Miniatures

Posted on April 27th, 2018 under . Posted by

Board Games – My board game clients are always bringing me something new
and different that I I’ve either not played or not heard about, but wind up
intrigued by the models. Stuffed Fables is one of those games. The concept
of a family friendly game that takes place completely on a self contained
“book” that also acts as a board is intriguing. I might need to do some
more research into this game as it might be a good fit for my kids.

Lords of Hellas Review

Lords of Hellas Core Box

It seems hypocrisy is something with which I am becoming more familiar. Not through malice or an attempt to ruin someone’s day (although I will admit it is entertaining), but through an evolution of taste and the fact that I seem to have been cross-bred with a magpie. That being the only explanation  I can think of for claiming to be “not about the miniatures” whilst jumping on the bandwagon faster than Zebedee on a springboard when a juicy Kickstarter appears which is clearly “mostly about the miniatures”.

Cowboy Up – Shadows of Brimstone Expansion

Posted on April 12th, 2018 under . Posted by

Board Games – Shadows of Brimstone (the chronically mispronounced game
“Shadows over Brimstone”) has a ton of expansions. Most recently I painted
up the “Allies of the Old West” expansion. This added a few miners/outlaws,
a black smith, pack mule and dog to my client’s collection for the game.

The Grimm Forest Review

The Grimm Forest Board Game Review

Once upon a time there was a trio of men who had a severe obsession in board games. Because of this obsession, they spent many hours playing, discussing and criticising their games, arguing about which was best. Needless to say, they almost never agreed.

It turns out that on occasion, the stars do align and said trio of man-children do reach a consensus. Unfortunately for the Grimm Forest, it’s not a positive outcome.

New to Us Games – March 2018

Posted on April 2nd, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Not a ton of new games this month. New board games, from best to worse: Barenpark – I immensely enjoyed this Tetris-style tile laying game, even with the flimsy theme of building a bear-only zoo. Unfortunately, due to Asmodee’s acquisition of Mayfair, this game will likely be difficult to obtain in the US for the […]

When I started this year I thought I’d do weekly round-ups, since we were going to be playing so many games. but some weeks we just don’t play that many. Seems silly to write up something about just one… (Well unless it’s a blow-by-blow miniature gam…

We’ve taken to not playing Imperial Assault without painted miniatures as it just adds so much and looks so much cooler. I’ve made my wife wait almost 3 months now to play the Return to Hoth expansion while I wrapped up some other projects and get arou…

New board games, from best to worst: 1960: The Making of the President – this political area control game about the 1960 United States presidential election is […]
