Welcome, friends, to Saturday. Another week is over and it’s time to relax with some gaming. When this posts, I’ll be in the middle of a D&D session. The current DM and I are gonna tag out once more and I’m gonna take back over the campaign. Of course, that leaves my character I was playing. I’ve told the other DM I want him to go out in a blaze of glory. So we’ll see what happens.
Anyway, we’ve collected together a bunch of review articles we’ve come across and present them to you here now.
In this batch, we’ve got reviews/previews of: Wrath of Kings, AquaSphere, DC Comics Dice Masters, Dragon Punch, Cauldron, Battlebards, Elysium, Panamax,
It’s another Saturday and so that means it’s time for another Review Round-Up.
We’ve got reviews for Ares Games’ The Battle of Five Armies, Red7 from Asmadi Games, Psycho Therapist, Gothic Invasion, and Mafia Casino.
Along with those, there are a couple “favorites of 2014” and a Top 10 or two to check out.
Board to Death posted up a new board game review. This one’s for Fealty from Asmadi Games.
From the review:
The king has died with no clear successor! The players—potential heirs all—are scrambling to put together their power bases by dispatching trusted agents and allies to garner support across the breadth of the kingdom. Nobody wants open warfare, but some conflict is sure to break out.
Fealty is a game of positioning and territory control. Each turn, all players add one piece to the game board, with increasing constraints on placement as time goes on. Some pieces have an effect when brought into play. At the end of the game, all pieces place influence in order of speed, claiming territory and blocking slower opposing pieces. The player who has maneuvered his or her pieces to place the most influence onto the board wins.
Channel A is a new party card game by Asmadi Games that’s up on Kickstarter. They’re halfway to their goal, so let’s see if we can get that other half.
From the campaign:
Channel A is a new anime-themed party card gaming from Asmadi Games, makers of We Didn’t Playtest This At All and 2010 Golden Geek Award winner Innovation. In the game players assemble word salad titles out of words on cards (Fighting Fight Fighters EX, Kaiser Bunny Legend, Love Ninja Z), and try to come up with the best pitch to go with it. The game is a uniquely creative take on party card games like Apples to Apples and Cards Against Humanity, and Asmadi Games is currently doing a Kickstarter funding drive that ends on March 31st.
