Pandemic Legacy Season 1 – No Spoilers

by Mike Bon January 7, 2016
WDR Gold Essential
Lets set aside for a moment the grinding of teeth and ridiculous caterwauling that has emerged since this game topped the BGG rankings as that’s a discussion for another time. Instead, let us ponder as to why it’s justifiably had this adoration lavished upon it and why it’s every bit as good as you might […]

Forbidden Desert

WDR Silver
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 […]

Legendary Encounters

WDR Essential
Ever since Upper Deck announced their plans to release an Alien themed version of Legendary I’ve been staying frosty in anticipation. The film series is something I’ve adored since I first encountered everyone’s favorite Xenomorph back in 79,  whilst not quite of age to see Alien on the big screen I devoured issues of Fantastic […]

Dead Of Winter

WDR Gold Essential
So here we go again, another bloody zombie game! I understand the eye rolling, the board game market has been flooded with Zombie titles over the last couple of years and disappointingly very few of them have honestly nailed this genre, the one exception being City Of Horror that came pretty close. They all make […]

Zombiecide Season 2 – Prison Outbreak

by Mike Bon July 11, 2014
WDR Silver
I’ve long avoided Zombicide, the price has been one factor it runs into the serious gamer’s budget area making attaining a copy a special treat and less an impulse buy. I’ve occasionally glanced from afar but in all honesty I wasn’t that enticed, sure there are all the great looking mini’s I mean this box […]

Luchador! Mexican Wrestling Dice. 1st Edition

by Mike Bon July 3, 2014
WDR Silver
Luchador! And you really need to shout that in a terrible faux Mexican accent to seriously get into the spirit of this crazy as a box full of rabid weevils dice game. Is such a simple game, its one of those blindingly obvious ideas that you table slam yourself for the very obviousness of it, […]

Sentinels Of The Multiverse

by Mike Bon July 3, 2014
I love comic books and have been avidly collecting them since the 1980’s, I even worked/hung around in a good friends store for several years (worked is a very loose approximation of what took place). So yes I’m an unashamed huge comic book geek they are in my blood, if you were to cut me […]

Heroquest

by Mike Bon July 3, 2014
  Ah the 80’s that bygone age of big hair, bigger shoulder pads and florescent clothing. 1989 was a standout year giving us some great movies Lethal Weapon 2, Burton’s Batman and Back to the future 2 some pretty cool tunes, Nirvana’s Bleach, The Stone Roses all of them classics, it also gave us the […]

Shadows Over Camelot

by Mike Bon July 3, 2014
WDR Bronze
  Shadows Over Camelot is something of the elder statesmen of board games, its now the ripe old age of 9, which for board games whose ageing works something like that of a Pekingese makes it in about 98 by human years. So its a bit long in the tooth and by rights should probably […]

D Day Dice

by Mike Bon July 3, 2014
Atchung! Schnell! and other war movie staples. We like dice here at WDR and also a bit partial to the odd war game so look what we have here D Day Dice has both yippiee! War Games! Huh! What are they good for… Well actually they can be a lot of fun but equally also […]
