Codenames: Duet Review

Posted on March 6th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Confession time. I’m not a very big fan of Codenames. I think it’s a fine game, but I just never got the hype for it. People who play it constantly, or said it changed the dynamic of their game group are on another planet than me. It was always one of …

Macroscope Review

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

MacroscopeGames that require an outside knowledge or skill to be successful are ultimately hit or miss for players. If you are not packed full of useless information or are an awful drawer, like me, your enjoyment of a certain game can be limited. While I love guessing what others were drawing in Pictionary or Telestrations, […]

Champion of the Wild Kickstarter Review
 
It’s a board game review cliché to say “if you like this kind of game, you’ll like this game”. It’s a tired and lazy get-out clause for a reviewer, they can thoroughly dislike a game and then issue this kind of statement completely admonishing any form of reviewer responsibility while remaining pretty, positive and ever so cuddly.
