Expansion Review – Architects of the West Kingdom – Age of Artisans

It’s no secret how much I love Architects of the West Kingdom. Even with my top 4 games being GMT Games, Architects still managed to get into the Top 5 games played of all time for 2022. With the Works of Wonder expansion just… Continue Reading “Expansion Review – Architects of the West Kingdom – Age of Artisans”

App Expansion Review – Terraforming Mars: Hellas & Elysium Maps

The Terraforming Mars app has had an up and down history. So much so that for a while, I wasn’t going to buy it (though I eventually succumbed). And it has greatly improved over time, especially with the Prelude expansion. However, one thing players… Continue Reading “App Expansion Review – Terraforming Mars: Hellas & Elysium Maps”

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. Online play oddities aside, the game has very few bugs that I’m aware of and it’s a brilliant digital adaptation of the boardgame designed… Continue Reading “App Expansion Review – Wingspan: European Expansion”

Review – Storm Above the Reich

During the COVID lockdowns, I became very attached to solo games that you can play in an hour or so. I was working from home 5 days a week and it was a nice break from the work and also let me keep my… Continue Reading “Review – Storm Above the Reich”

Review – Ark Nova

Some games have names that make you think one thing when they are really something else. Whether that’s good or bad, I couldn’t tell you. I guess it depends on whether what you thought it was turns you off or not. When I first… Continue Reading “Review – Ark Nova”

Expansion Review – Smash Up: It’s Your Fault

One of the perks of coming back to work in the office after the COVID lockdowns ended was the ability to play games at lunch. Namely, Smash Up (though we’ve played a bunch of other games as well). Way back in 2019, I had… Continue Reading “Expansion Review – Smash Up: It’s Your Fault”

Expansion Review – Clank in Space Adventures: Pulsarcade

Say you’re a power-mad warlord who collects things and holds them in a massive section of your space ship as you roam around the galaxy. And say that, as said warlord, you’re getting sick and tired of these thieves breaking onto your ship and… Continue Reading “Expansion Review – Clank in Space Adventures: Pulsarcade”

Review – Gravwell 2nd Edition

Sometimes life really sucks. I’m talking about Grade A disasters like missing the last bus of the night and having to find some place to stay because your stupid friend passed out right after you left and he’s not answering the door to let… Continue Reading “Review – Gravwell 2nd Edition”

App Review – Evolution: Climate (With a Little Evolution Thrown In)

A couple of months ago, I reviewed Oceans, a sequel of sorts to the great game from North Star Games Evolution. But North Star is never willing to sit on their hands and revel in the joy of a successful app. After a kind… Continue Reading “App Review – Evolution: Climate (With a Little Evolution Thrown In)”

App Review – Maracaibo

Have you ever wanted to just get slammed upside the head repeatedly by a deck of cards? No, just me? Well, it’s a good thing that you probably don’t suck at Maracaibo as much as I do, so you’ll probably actually enjoy not having… Continue Reading “App Review – Maracaibo”
