Warhammer Quest Silver Tower

by Adam Won October 10, 2016
I love the original Warhammer Quest. I mean really, really love it. I’ve even written about how much I love it on Prepare For Boarding (did you spot the shameless plug? I think it was pretty subtle). So when Games Workshop announced they were releasing a new version set in the Age of Sigmar universe, […]

WDR Bronze
Judge Dredd is one of my earliest hobby game purchases from way back in 1982, it was the golden age of Games Workshop in the UK they had a blockbusting run of stone cold classics during that decade. There was Dungeon Quest, Rogue Trooper, Talisman, Chainsaw Warrior, Cosmic Encounter, Fury of Dracula, Warrior Knights and […]

You’re both trapped in a small shack by the beach, a mob outside have sent out a crazed one of their number to draw you out. One of you is already hurt and trying to decode a puzzle while the other’s flailing wildly with a fire axe. Finally, the maniac drops to the floor, dead. […]

Frag

by Adam Won August 16, 2016
Frag – the first person shooter board game. If ever there was a game where the concept was a simple one, this is it. Its tagline says it all ‘If it moves, shoot it.’ Produced by Steve Jackson Games, with the original edition released in 2001, the game channels classic old-school First Person Shooters. This […]

WDR Silver
Casting a shadow over the gaming table larger than a star destroyer chasing down a Corellian Corvette at full throttle Rebellion’s box is no moon its a well it’s a colossal box. Considering that Star Wars fever is at full froth are its contents strong with the force or have FFG given us a bait […]

You’re part way through a horror movie with an ensemble of characters exploring a creepy mansion, getting little hints of the greater evil lurking in the shadows. Then, all of a sudden there’s a revelation… the friendly doctor was working with the monster all along. Things go from a crawl to a manic race in […]

Battlestar Galactica and Expansions Review

by Charlie Etheridge-Nunnon June 17, 2016
WDR Gold Essential
When justifying buying legacy games, I’ve often heard the argument, “What board games have you played twelve or more times?” This generally doesn’t count things like Love Letter; they mean the big boys. The first place my mind goes to when people ask this question is Battlestar Galactica, a game which has definitely seen its’ […]

Saltlands

WDR Silver
The post-apocalypse is one of my most beloved genre’s thanks in large part to a petrol-head father, Mad Max and the fact we watched them pretty much on a constant loop in my formative years. It’s a disappointment then that hobby board games are still a wasteland when it comes to this genre; I endured […]

Talisman 4th Edition

by Mike Bon April 7, 2016
Let’s play Talisman. It’s a phrase when uttered in gaming circles will either materialise hazy half-remembrances of wasted Sunday afternoons and dreamy expressions, send a gamer screaming from the room or get you punched. On the button pushing scale of gaming, it’s up there with other marmite flavoured delights such as Munchkin, Cards Against Humanity […]
