The City of Kings

by Mike Bon April 17, 2018
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, […]

Bärenpark

by Charlie Etheridge-Nunnon April 17, 2018
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 […]

Starfighter

by Adam Won February 15, 2018
Thanks to my well-known obsession with all things tabletop, every Christmas my friends and family attempt to outdo themselves by seeing what little gaming gems they can find me. Sometimes they succeed and sometimes I get Liar’s Dice. This year was no exception and with giddy delight, I turned to the neatly wrapped boxes before […]

Battle of the Austen: Matchmaker Vs Marrying Mr Darcy

by Charlie Etheridge-Nunnon January 21, 2018
So apparently Jane Austen is a genre of tabletop game… Who knew? Actually I did. I’m a fan of Jane Austen, I’m dating a much bigger fan of Jane Austen. When people started talking about these two games I knew buying Marrying Mr Darcy and backing Matchmaker would be an inevitability. The thing is, these […]

D Day Dice

by Mike Bon November 18, 2017
As this long out of print and particularly hard to find little devil has recently reemerged on Kickstarter I thought I’d pull out this old review from the vaults. Give it a polish and put it up here in case you missed it the first time. Having looked at the new edition other than some […]

Catch the Moon

by Charlie Etheridge-Nunnon September 16, 2017
Catch the Moon is a… Damn.   Catch the  Moon is an interesting little dexterity game which… Catch the Moon is a dexterity game. And sometimes I wonder why I do these things. I am dyspraxic. Quick comparisons are to having lag between my brain and my body. My spatial coordination is horrendous, as are […]

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. […]

Robot Wars

by Charlie Etheridge-Nunnon July 23, 2017
This is my life now. I reviewed Lost, 24 and really should get round to writing a review of Ground Force. My ‘friends’ have seen this and decided that I’m the bad charity shop licensed game reviewer, so I was sent Robot Wars: The Game, to review. Thanks, Glen. At first, I thought what most […]
