Review – Legendary: A Marvel Deckbuilding Game

Can you name a game that I have played 61 times with various expansions but for some reason haven’t actually done a review for? You can? How is that? Oh, it’s in the title of this post. Cheater. Anyway, Legendary: a Marvel Deckbuilding Game… Continue Reading “Review – Legendary: A Marvel Deckbuilding Game”

Review – Shards of Infinity

There’s something to be said for a nice, simple deck-building card game that you can knock out in 15-20 minutes (maybe 30 if you’re unlucky). These games are perfect for a couple of games at lunch with co-workers, or maybe as a way to… Continue Reading “Review – Shards of Infinity”

Review – Roll Player

Growing up, while I played a few wargames with my brother, I was also an avid player of Dungeons & Dragons. I played with a few of my school chums (Editor: Look at you, trying to sound English), even sometimes during class! One of… Continue Reading “Review – Roll Player”

App Review – Terraforming Mars – Prelude Expansion

Long-time readers of this blog know that I’ve had a kind of love-hate relationship with the app version of one of my favourite games. While Terraforming Mars is still in my Top 10 games played, the digital version had a bumpy ride after its… Continue Reading “App Review – Terraforming Mars – Prelude Expansion”

App Review – Fury of Dracula from Nomad Games

You know a game is old when I was actually still in high school when it came out. The classic deduction game, Fury of Dracula, originally came out in 1987. Now in its 4th edition and a game that many people love, it’s only… Continue Reading “App Review – Fury of Dracula from Nomad Games”

App Review – Wingspan

Wingspan is probably one of my favourite games. In fact, if I had played it before I did my Top 25 games of all time, it probably would have been on there. I mean really, how can you go wrong with a game where… Continue Reading “App Review – Wingspan”

App Review – Roll for the Galaxy

Until news of the app version for Roll for the Galaxy came out, I hadn’t actually played it in quite a while. I do remember really liking the game, though. As I said in my Top 100 BGG games post, it’s a game that… Continue Reading “App Review – Roll for the Galaxy”

More New Characters for Talisman Digital!

It’s June and Nomad Games has released another trio of new characters for the digital version of Talisman.  Recently they released the Satyr, the Vampire, and the Pilgrim as characters you can play, all coming with their own little unique aspects that are pretty cool… Continue Reading “More New Characters for Talisman Digital!”

App Review – Viticulture

Viticulture is a great game about running a vineyard. Please note: it’s running a vineyard, not necessarily making wine (though there is plenty of that too). The game, designed by Morten Monrad Pedersen, Jamey Stegmaier, and Alan Stone with art by Jacqui Davis, David Montgomery, and… Continue Reading “App Review – Viticulture”

App Review – Football Highlights 2052

(Edit: Peter has graciously corrected a couple of things. Rather than mention them here, I’ll note the edit in each spot. I apologize for the errors. Thanks, Peter!) Mike Fitzgerald knows card games. My first exposure to his work was the brilliant trick-taking game Diamonds,… Continue Reading “App Review – Football Highlights 2052”
