Review – Raiders of the North Sea Big Box

One of the first posts I did on this blog talked about how board game box inserts can be so important. The problem with even good inserts has always been “what about the expansion(s)?” That’s a viable point. I’ve seen many games where the… Continue Reading “Review – Raiders of the North Sea Big Box”

Review – Speakeasy Blues

There have been a few games published recently about Prohibition and various alcohol-related activites. I fully endorse more of that! *hic* One of the ones that looked really cool but I never pulled the trigger on buying it was Speakeasy Blues. When the pandemic… Continue Reading “Review – Speakeasy Blues”

Expansion Review – Shards of Infinity: Relics of the Future

One of my new favourite deckbuilding games is the brilliant Shards of Infinity, a game I reviewed back in January. The game is published by Stoneblade Entertainment and Ultra-PRO and is Designed by Gary Arant and Justin Gary with artwork by Aaron Nakahara. One… Continue Reading “Expansion Review – Shards of Infinity: Relics of the Future”

App Review – Pavlov’s House

One genre of games I haven’t really gotten into, mainly because I haven’t had the opportunity, is solo gaming. There are many great-sounding solo wargames out there, but the idea of spending 2-3 hours playing a game on the table by myself just doesn’t… Continue Reading “App Review – Pavlov’s House”

Fury of Dracula from Nomad Games Comes to Mobile

Nomad Games has been very good to me, giving me review codes for many of their games, from Talisman to Talisman: Origins and then the old-time deduction game, Fury of Dracula. Last week, Nomad Games brought Fury of Dracula to mobile devices, both iPad… Continue Reading “Fury of Dracula from Nomad Games Comes to Mobile”

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”
