Secret Hitler

by Adam Won January 31, 2017
Are you good at bluffing and lying? I’m not. I’m bloody awful at it. I have tried to play poker, but it really should be named ‘who would like to have some of Adam’s money?’ My first attempt at Skull ended up with me crashing and burning in the most spectacular way imaginable. And Werewolf […]

Adam is all at sea with Cape Horn. Yep he’s been in the bargain bin again.. Everyone knows I love both a bargain. Moreover, I love an obscure game that I can pick up at a bargain price and hopefully get a good bit of play out of. Having been previously rewarded with games like […]

Did you ever sit and ponder, where did those cheeky ghost chappies from Pac-Man get too? Well, now we know.

Matt Leacock designer of Pandemic, Forbidden Island and Forbidden Desert seems like a nice enough chap, I can only assume he was picked on as a child, maybe he always lost those family games of Monopoly. The reason for this? Well take a look at his board game output it resembles a 70’s disaster movie […]

Mysterium

WDR Gold Essential
If a board game can be defined as such a thing as a sleeper hit then I think Mysterium is one, originally published by Portal Games back in 2013 this has long flown under the gamer radar. I personally didn’t know of its existence until rumblings started to emanate from Essen this year and swiftly […]

Note that this based on a pre-release version of the game and the finished components and rules may differ, but it’ll still be cool. Now here’s a thing, when was the last time you indulged in some coloring in? Can’t remember right, neither could I, how had it come that I’d not indulged in a […]
