Hating on HATE

(Editor’s Note: A previous version of this post said that HATE was designed by Eric Lang. Actually, the Kickstarter page says this: “Created by the same design team who brought you the Zombicide series, under the supervision of Eric Lang…”. I regret the error and… Continue Reading “Hating on HATE”

First Impressions – Modern Art

I’m not a huge fan of auction games. I’m just not great at figuring out value for money and deciding when to stop bidding on something. Probably why I don’t do the family finances. For some reason, though, the first time I played Modern… Continue Reading “First Impressions – Modern Art”

Review – Biblios

I love books. Books make me happy. The feel of the paper as you turn the pages. The new book smell. The tap of your finger on the screen as you go to the next page… Wait, what? Anyway, books are awesome. I can… Continue Reading “Review – Biblios”

Review – Epic Spell Wars: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre

Apparently, being a wizard isn’t all the fun and games that our good friend Mr. Potter has shown us. Sure, he had to face off and defeat He Who Shall Not Be Named, but he managed to do so while not using one bad… Continue Reading “Review – Epic Spell Wars: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre”

I didn’t realize with yesterday’s Rambo post that this would actually be becoming a Thing, but apparently it is. Yes, the 1980s are invading the 2010s, and they are winning.

We’re in that sweet spot where 35-45 year-olds are really getting into game design, and why not use something that we grew up when designing a game? First, there was (in… Continue Reading “The 80s are Returning!!! – Rambo Kickstarter Upcoming”

Dead of Winter – Warring Colonies are Coming!

Zombie games have become old hat (but it’s not “plaid”), but there are still some interesting things out there in the genre. One of the more interesting recent games is Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game from Plaid Hat Games. It came out in… Continue Reading “Dead of Winter – Warring Colonies are Coming!”

Terra Mystica App Magically Appearing on Apr 20

The two times I’ve sat down to play the game Terra Mystica, I’ve bounced off of it pretty hard. It’s a complex game with a lot of different moving parts that tie up your brain like getting wrapped up in a huge blanket and… Continue Reading “Terra Mystica App Magically Appearing on Apr 20”

New Edition of Brass from Roxley Games – Kickstarter April 17

One of the best economic games for those players who don’t necessarily want to feel like they’re nothing but an accountant using spreadsheets is a game called Brass (now apparently renamed Brass: Lancashire for reasons I’ll get to in a moment). The game, designed… Continue Reading “New Edition of Brass from Roxley Games – Kickstarter April 17”
