The board gamer is by choice a social animal, never happier than clustering in groups and shooting the breeze around a table filled with like-minded individuals its the founding principles of what we do.

Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island

The Co-op game, its sole purpose apparently to ruin a perfectly good evening and get a group of friends arguing. Despite this impediment, they’ve gone on to become a popular and thriving sector of our hobby. Essential they are all evil piles of cardboard, cards, and cubes intent on making everyone’s life a bloody misery. […]

Robbie Thinks About… Room 25

by Rob Pennon August 6, 2015
For such a simple concept, room 25 is brilliantly done. With only four moves to choose from: peek, move, push and switch it’s all about how much you trust your “friends”.

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 […]

  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 […]
