Expansion Review – Smash Up: Disney

As part of a partnership with The OP, Alderac Entertainment Group is releasing three different Smash Up core sets with IP that the OP has (is that too much EP?). The first, of course, was Smash Up: Marvel, which was a pretty good expansion… Continue Reading “Expansion Review – Smash Up: Disney”

App Review – Everdell

Dire Wolf Digital, in addition to being the publisher for some great tabletop games (like Clank in Space), is also one of the premiere publishers of digital boardgame adaptations.

App Expansion Review – Wingspan: European Expansion

The Wingspan app published by Monster Couch Games has been a wonderful app since it came out in October 2020.

Review – Storm Above the Reich
