App Review – Oceans

I love science. I love science even more when it’s in the name of a boardgame that’s talking about science. That’s why I really like Evolution. But wait, this isn’t about Evolution! Though it does have a pretty kick-ass app. No, this review is… Continue Reading “App Review – Oceans”

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”

App Review – Neuroshima Hex by Portal Games

The Neuroshima Hex app has been around for quite a while. Big Daddy Creations originally did it and it was actually not bad. But it became buggy as hell and the multiplayer (at least asynchronous) became virtually unusable. I enjoyed playing it but finally… Continue Reading “App Review – Neuroshima Hex by Portal Games”

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”

App Review – Concordia by Acram Digital

“Trading in the Mediterranean” has become a bit of a cliche. But look at designer Mac Gerdts breaking that cliche and making it interesting again! The boardgame version of Concordia, designed by Gerdts with artwork by Marina Fahrenbach, Mac Gerdts and Dominik Mayer, came out in… Continue Reading “App Review – Concordia by Acram Digital”

Expansion Review – Roll Player: Monsters & Minions

One of the biggest hits for me during the beginning of the pandemic (when I bought way too many games than I really should have) was Roll Player. I had played it once before, was intrigued by it, but never actually got to play… Continue Reading “Expansion Review – Roll Player: Monsters & Minions”

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”
