by Mike Bon April 19, 2018
Oooh look at us putting out another podcast episode in the same month!

WDR Gold Essential
Around a year ago I published this very review that you will find below for The City of Kings, it blew me away on my first encounter and went on to do rather well for itself. Well I’m resurrecting my initial thoughts as the reprint for the game plus some new content including more quests, […]

The Best Bears in Tabletop Games

by Charlie Etheridge-Nunnon April 17, 2018
I recently wrote about Bärenpark, which was a fantastic board game entirely about bears. It isn’t the only one though, as the noble bear has had a role in several games we all know and love. I thought I’d give a shout out to bears in board games. A quick disclaimer, I may have a […]

Bears! Bears are pretty great. I’ve reviewed Honey Heist and really loved that. Bears can be adorable and deadly in equal measure. In the Who Dares Rolls Podcast 47 I mentioned taking part in the BoardGameGeek UK Maths Trade and getting Bärenpark. My partner heard that I was getting this game and cared about nothing else. […]

Psi-Run: Days of Future Past (a hacked review)

by Charlie Etheridge-Nunnon March 22, 2018
Original Game by Meguey Baker and Night Sky Games. Days of Future Past hack by jenskot on the Story Games forums. Trapped in a world that hates and fears them, the X-Men were a massive part of my youth and still a core part of my fandom. I’d read Meguey Baker’s amazing Psi*Run and managed […]

Wreck & Ruin

by Mike Bon March 20, 2018
We first encountered Wreck & Ruin at last years EXPO where Tony and Jaime just two of the Hydra-like offshoots of our sinister review operation had experienced a blistering slice of post-apocalyptic mayhem and had loved it! I tried and failed to get a game in at the show as it was proving rather popular […]
