Ground Force

by Mike Bon August 22, 2017
I am shocked to say, this is possibly the best licensed game I’ve bought from a charity shop so far. Ground Force is a game for 2-4 players, each of whom start off with a three-by-three grid of cards representing a smashed up garden. Look at it. What a mess. There’s a tire, there’s litter. […]

Stak Bots – Red Expansion

by Mike Bon May 13, 2016
Stak Bots has been a part of the WDR furniture since I first started writing reviews, it’s grown up with us and is still the filler of choice for Son No.1. Not that he’d admit that in public these days, being a teenager he’s far more interested in that poster of Katie Perry, oh dear. […]

Sub Rosa: Spies For Hire

by Mike Bon March 11, 2016
Sub Rosa is imminently due for release on Kickstarter. I was lucky enough to be furnished with a preview copy by the designer and following are my thoughts. Ever fancied yourself as a Spymaster? Sub Rosa deserves to be set during the 1970’s at the height of those shadowy cold war shenanigans, after all, who […]

Side Quest

by Mike Bon November 2, 2015
The dungeon crawling card game genre has proved popular of late the excellent Welcome to the Dungeon and riotous Cutthroat Caverns both spring to mind. They’ve proved hugely successful by each having a great hook. Welcome is a silly push your luck filler whereas Cutthroat is all about screwage of your fellow dungeon companions. These […]

Smoke & Mirrors

by Mike Bon August 20, 2015
Aside from my obsession with board games sleight of hand card tricks has long been a fascination for me. Now personally I’m useless at them you just need to witness my hamfisted attempts at shuffling to know this but Masters of this skill such as Ricky Jay are heroes of mine. So combining a theme […]

One thing we strive for here at WDR towers is to shine a light on the smaller publishers and games, those that can get lost in all the noise and bluster whenever one of the big boys release a shiny new toy. Recently we pointed you towards 6, released at the UK Games EXPO it […]

Sandcastles

by Mike Bon February 25, 2015
Ah trips to the beach, a distinctly British pastime of dragging the family down to one of our many coastlines and indulging in a spot of bonding over gritty ham sandwiches, lounging in a deckchair while being buffeted by a strong north easterly wind and applying copious amounts of sun cream to each other. Whilst […]

OK so I’m coming a tad late to this party, in actual fact its a shocking oversight as the designers are local lads. Stop with the looks back there, OK the truth of the matter is I missed the original Kickstarter and fully intended to catch up with Nigel and Lloyd at the UK Games […]
