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 »

Undo Review

"Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Dr. Rory J. Somers opened the Undo box and started playing... He woke to find himself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not his own and driven by an unknown force to change history for the better. His only guide on this journey came in the form of a few decks of cards. And so Dr. Somers finds himself leaping from life to life, striving to put right what once went wrong and hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home."Read more »

The Primary Review

There is a bizarre expectation when it comes to games themed on politics that to play and to really enjoy them, you need to have some understanding of politics, or, in my case for The Primary, the American electoral system.  This, quite frankly is rubbish as I know as much about politics as I do about terraforming, farming or about killing orcs, and so I was able to enjoy The Primary a lot.The Primary creates the feeling of politicking, the bravado, the strategizing, and of course the back stabbing.  The game hinges on things like “the long term plan” and “out-maneurouring”.  It asks you to focus on the “final result” and not each turn, especially those “strategic losses”.  It’s a game where you are very aware that you are playing the players rather than simply playing a game.Read more »
