Wildlands was a surprise hit for me this year. I didn’t expect to love a skirmish game designed by veteran Eurogame designer Martian Wallace, but he easily proved he has the chops to do it. If you missed the original review, you can check it out here. But suffice to say, Wildlands is a great […]
Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game was one of my top 10 games from 2018 (just barely missing out on the top spot). So of course, when 3 more cases dropped for Detective, I jumped at the chance to play them! This time though instead of being set in modern times, the time line shifts […]
“The wind and the waves are always on the side of the ablest navigator.” ―Edmund Gibbon Before, your great nation was only effected by its neighbors. You thrived, fought, and traded those on the land borders of your thriving civilization. Then one day, on the sea’s horizon, a sail appeared… 7 Wonders Armada is an […]
The Leshavult the newest set of miniature for Goblin Kings Game Moonstone is now on Kickstarter. Not only that but it’s fully funded and knocking down stretch goals. Now you may have seen us look [...] The post Moonstone The Leshavult on Kickstarter appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
We, as a species, are creatures of habit. Almost all of us cherish certain routines and rely on the consistency of experiences to perpetuate our comfort from one moment to the next. In game playing and buying, this can reveal itself in a variety of ways. When it comes to expansions, people initially group themselves […]
Here. Rev- I interrupted Tony’s literal mind game. “I am on this, dead Obi-Wan.” I snatched up the two expansions to Evil High Priest that were perched on Tony’s altar/card table and bolted towards the door. Creepy Telepathic Tony was NOT going to ruin my excitement at getting to play these two expansions! Expansion Overview: […]
We have been in love with Sagrada from the moment we played a prototype version back at Gen Con in 2016. The strategy and puzzle-like thinking required to put together a high-scoring window, combined with neat dice-drafting mechanic, makes a game that we can bring to the table for any crowd. To give the title […]
Back in 2013, a small game publisher launched their second Kickstarter for a game called Euphoria. This worker/die placement game tasked players with taking control of the dystopian world. My original review of Euphoria gave it a solid 4 stars (way back in 2014) and it still makes its way to our table every now […]
Imperial Settlers from Portal Games has to be one of my favorite card games. It combines engine building with multi-use cards, and I love how different each of the factions feels. The game has already been expanded a number of times with both new factions and smaller card box expansions, but Portal Games isn’t done […]
Ice Cool is one of the better dexterity games out there. We loved it from our first flick and recently reviewed the stand alone expansion Ice Cool 2. The expansion not only can play without the original game, but you can actually combine the two for some larger layouts and also the new Race Mode. […]
One of my favorite games to come out in 2016 was the first person shooter (FPS) themed board game Adrenaline. It actually came in at #5 for my rankings for the year and it’s also actually an area control game where players are the area being controlled, but the theme has players running around and shooting […]
“Here. Review this,” said Tony, who pointed at a small box on his workbench without even so much as glancing up from his latest obsession: brewing moonshine in his basement. I looked at the box. Scythe Encounters. What? “I can’t take this. I was lied to.” “By who?” asked Tony. “By WHOM…. by Jamey Stegmaier. […]
As far as dexterity games go, I’m a bit of an addict. Their unique play style is always a welcome break from the 1,000th worker placement or dudes on a map game that’s currently gracing my tabletop. At Gen Con 2016, I was able to get my hands on a surprisingly good dexterity game in […]
It is established fact that we here at BGQ enjoy ourselves a game of Imperial Settlers every now and again. Between the elegance of gameplay, the depth of strategies available, and the great theme, it is a game we find ourselves returning to with pleas...
Neuroshima Hex is one of my favorite 2 player games. Although it has rules for 3 and 4 player battles, it really shines as a you-versus-me experience. Today we are taking a look at the Neuroshima Hex Iron Gang Hexpuzzles. This expansion gives you solo ...
