Review – The Rival Networks

I have always loved The Networks, ever since the beginning. It was one of my first Kickstarter games and it’s solidly in my Top 10 games of all time. So when I heard that a 2-player version of the game, The Rival Networks, was… Continue Reading “Review – The Rival Networks”

Storm Above the Reich – After Action Report – Missions #1 & #2

Storm Above the Reich is a solo game (it can be played 2-players cooperatively, but why would you?) where you are leading a squadron of German Luftwaffe fighters against B-24 bombers who are attempting to bomb their targets.

Friday Night Shots – Score Sheets for Games

Welcome to the first of what could be a series of posts, or might just be a one-shot. Basically, it’s Friday night, I’ve had a couple of drinks, and maybe it’s time to visit a pressing issue in the boardgame industry. Or maybe I… Continue Reading “Friday Night Shots – Score Sheets for Games”

The Fox in the Forest Goes Electronic From Dire Wolf Digital

A rare double post day, but when you discover some news right after your scheduled post for the day goes out, you have to do it! Dire Wolf Digital announced today that on Monday, October 18, they are releasing the really great 2-player trick-taking… Continue Reading “The Fox in the Forest Goes Electronic From Dire Wolf Digital”

Review – The City

This review actually has more twists and turns than a City Council meeting trying to issue a policy that will please all of its residents. I guess I should identify the game I’m talking about first, though. The City is a tableau-building card game… Continue Reading “Review – The City”

New To Me – September 2021

Another month and another “New to Me” games post. This is the 50th! It feels so good to finally be playing some new games. I’m trying to play some of the many games I bought during the worst of the pandemic (so this is… Continue Reading “New To Me – September 2021”
