Tangura Kickstarter Review

One of my biggest problems in life is my inability to relax. I have one of those minds that needs to be constantly doing something, constantly active. Which is why sitting on a tropical beach is not something that generally appeals to me, it also might be why I’m having a little trouble relating to Tungaru, the latest big board game from Alley Cat Games and designers Louis and Stefan Malz. Because although Tangaru has all the euro game stalwarts of resources, trading and action selection, it's all very gentle.Read more »

Dice Hospital Community Care Kickstarter Review

When I joined Polyhedron Collider I caused one major upset.  For a long time the highest accolade that could bestowed upon a game was the coveted “Three For Thee” award, where each of the three members of Polyhedron Collider, with their varied tastes on the hobby, had all purchased the same game.Dice Hospital was a Three For Three game.But, now there are four of us.  Making that award slightly less prestigious yet simultaneously making the new, “Four For Four” award something akin to a platinum trophy.Dice Hospital is a Platinum Game.  So when the opportunity presented itself to play the new Expansion, Community Care, Caezar nearly lost an arm in our collective rush to get it.Read more »

The Great UK Games Expo 2019 Wash-Up Part 2

There was something about this year's expo that made it very special for me.  Perhaps it was the excellent company I kept.  Perhaps it was the now legendary map or perhaps it was the standard of games on offer.We've already spoken at length about some of the games we saw on episode 63 of the podcast, and both Andy and Jon have put fingers to keyboard to tell you about the games they enjoyed, but here are a few more of the games I played.Read more »

The Great UK Games Expo 2019 Wash-Up Part 1

They say, quite accurately, that Christmas comes but once a year. Writing this article in June, that may seem like an odd thing to open with. However, there are a lot of things that Christmas has in common with the UK Games Expo. They both get a lot of people excited; both have enormous expectation, are inevitably exhausting and both leave the adults completely skint after a flurry of purchasing the latest and greatest. I may or may not be speaking from experience on that last point.Read more »

Coral Islands Kickstarter Review

Coral Islands presents gamers with a bold concept, two games in one box.  Linked by theme and components these oceanic games utilise dice stacking in different ways to give us two games that would likely have never been made had they swiped left.  Lucky for us, when they met, using the Alley Cat Dating app it was a match made in cardboard heaven.  Coral (who loves bright colours, 3D Tetris and jigsaw puzzles), saw something in Islands (who loves long walks on the beach, music and occasionally bending the rules) that they didn’t even see in themselves.So, dear reader, this combi-review will look at what you’ll get in the box, one game at a time.  Starting with:Read more »

Dice Hospital Review

It is said that one must work at a relationship. That you only get out what you put in, which mathematically makes no sense as if you’re making no profit, why bother? I imagine that’s missing the point somewhat, but I am not exactly the sympathetic, caring type. Insensitivity aside, it could be said that have been somewhat lax regarding my relationship with Dice Hospital. You could say we’ve had a tumultuous beginning. Before I go full Claire Rayner on you, let me explain. Read more »
