Ah, Saturday. What cannot be accomplished on a day like today?
*hears someone shout out “You can’t build Rome in a day!”* … Ok, besides that. *hears people shout out hundreds of other things* Ok, fine! But besides the roads, education, the aqueduct, and stability, what have the Romans ever given us?
… I feel I’ve gotten off-track. Here’s today’s Review Roundup.

This time around we have: V-Wars, Imhotep, Celestia, Escape From the Aliens in Outer Space, Ghost Stories, Adventure Time Card Wars: Fionna vs Cake, Tanks – Panther vs Sherman Starter Set, T.I.M.E. Stories (spoiler-free and spoiler reviews), Light of Dragons, Roots of Mali, and Mage Wars Arena Battlegrounds Domination.

V-Wars Review

Vwars

V-Wars is an all out war for control of the earth. The game starts out as a “fully cooperative game”, but as loyalties are revealed (or switched), it’s clear that lines will be drawn and only one side will win.

The Wu-Feng Clan (A Review of Ghost Stories)

GhostStories_Boxcover

Ghost Stories is a cooperative game tasking players with defeating an army of ghosts attacking a lonely village. In order to claim victory, the players, or Taoists, must defeat all incarnations of Wu-Feng before the village is destroyed.

Radder, Faster, More Adequate (A Review of Adventure Time Card Wars: Fionna vs Cake)

FionnaCake2

So Card Wars kind of smooshes together aspects of traditional trading card games like Magic and Yu-Gi-Oh into one streamlined lane-based battle-fest.

The idea of the game is to do damage to, and eventually knock out, the opposing player. You’ll be playing creatures, buildings and spells in order to chain some awesome combos and knock those hit points from 25 to 0. The battle area is split into four lanes. Cards only battle cards in their own lane, unless you’re told otherwise. Each lane contains two landscape tiles, one of yours and one of your opponent’s.

Tanks – Panther vs Sherman Starter Set Review

This new game has been launched with the Panther vs Sherman Starter Set, plus a set of two American expansions (Sherman & Pershing) and three German expansions (Panther, Stug G and Panzer IV). Further expansions of British & Russian Tanks are coming in July and August respectively.
