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”

Wingspan: European Expansion Coming to the App

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”
