20 Awesome Looking Board Games Coming in 2017: Part 1

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

Time has rolled round yet again, the year has been reset and by the time you read this most people’s New Year’s resolutions will have been broken. Hopefully your New Year’s resolution wasn’t to buy less table top games, because there are loads of awesome board, card, miniature and roleplaying games set to be released in 2017.

Every year this list gets easier and easier to write as game publishers provide more and more information early and start promoting their games. In fact I’ve really struggled to keep this list down to X games.

It also means that games can be delayed.  All the games listed here are slated to be released in 2017, but as we’ve seen in previous years there may be some delays.

DOOM: The Board Game Review

Posted on January 11th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

For those of you swimming around inside your father’s scrotal cavity in 1993, the DOOM series has been a benchmark for FPS titles (First Person Shooters for those of you not au fait with the wonderful world of the video smile machines), a standard which few games have surpassed. id Software are renowned for making solid game engines and DOOM was their breakthrough title. It’s spawned (pun intended) a legacy of sequels, updates and remakes around the canon – all usually involving an unnamed soldier (the DOOM Marine) running around a Martian base trying to repel the forces of Hell back from whence they came.
