Review – Terraforming Mars: Ares Expedition

(Edit: This game is on my Top 25 games played of all time!) What happens when one of your favourite games gets a bit of a revamp where it’s faster and also uses some mechanisms from other games that you like? It’s not the… Continue Reading “Review – Terraforming Mars: Ares Expedition”

New to Me – November 2021

Welcome to November’s “New to Me” post! You may notice something odd about November. No, it’s not that I had way too much Thanksgiving turkey (THANKSGIVING’S IN OCTOBER, YOU NON-CANADIANS!). It’s that three of the seven entries on this list are from Alderac Entertainment… Continue Reading “New to Me – November 2021”

Review – Whirling Witchcraft

Do you like giving it to one of your opponents, good and hard? By that I mean, of course, by overwhelming them with so much stuff that they can’t cope with it. (What did you think I meant?) Anyway, if you like that sort… Continue Reading “Review – Whirling Witchcraft”

MOB – Big Apple – On kickstarter now

Given the typical Friday nights that many people are having right now, who wouldn’t want to play a game about cornering the booze market!

Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #130-121

After three weeks or so, it’s time for another entry in the BGG Top 200! We’re almost done, which you would think would mean that I could actually get these done in a timely manner. But, you know, COVID and everything. Yeah, I do… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #130-121”

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”

Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? #30-21

It’s that time of week again. The sun’s out (kind of, though it’s supposed to rain by the time this actually posts) and we’re into Summer. Yet the temperature’s in the 60s in Vancouver and I’m really enjoying it. I don’t need it to… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? #30-21”

Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? 70-61

It’s week 4 of my weekly look at the Boardgame Geek Top 100 games to see how many I’ve played and how many I even want to play. It’s a rather blah week, for a lot of reasons, but also just because there aren’t… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? 70-61”

Roll for the Galaxy – App Beta First Impressions

A while back,  I reported that Temple Gates, developer of the wonderful Race for the Galaxy and Shards of Infinity apps (the latter of which a review is coming soon!), was going to be rolling out the beta for the app version of Roll for the Galaxy,… Continue Reading “Roll for the Galaxy – App Beta First Impressions”

Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? 100-91

It’s no secret that I’ve been in a bit of blog doldrums over the last couple of weeks. The social isolation and not playing many games (none until last weekend, actually) except the apps that I do asynchronously, plus getting really busy at work… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? 100-91”
