Review Roundup

It’s Saturday. That means it’s the weekend. That means I’m happy. Went grocery shopping this morning to get ingredients to make turkey soup as well as this year’s fruitcake. Still need to get one last thing (that has its own theme song for the activity of getting it). That’ll start getting ready today, while the final assembly will be tomorrow. What to do in the meantime? Maybe put together some Kingdom Death and play some Guild Ball. Also, give you the reviews you so desperately desire.

Today we have: Terraforming Mars, Adrenaline, Rubicon Models Panzer III, Star Wars Dobble (AKA – Spot It), Lord of the Rings The Card Game, Captain Sonar, Planet Rush, Fight for Olympus, Rollet, and A Game of Thrones: Hand of the King.

Review Roundup

Hey there, everyone. I hope you’re all having a great Saturday. I just got back from the grocery store (I’m typing this up a decent amount earlier than it is set to go live) so I can get ready to have some company over for a low-key Halloween party. I’m making cookies, chocolate-coated peanut butter balls, and gumbo. Should be a good time. I’m sure a lot of you have somewhat similar plans.

As for the moment, though, before I dive into a bit of last-minute cleaning and then work on cooking, let’s get you those gaming reviews I know you all so desperately desire.

This week we have: Bankers and Robbers, Dungeon Saga, Harry Potter Deck-Building Game, Conquest Games’ Medieval Archers, Mysterium, Aeon’s End, Love Letter: Premium Edition, Mortem Et Gloriam, The Networks, Eclipse: Shadow of the Rift, Tumult Royale, Necronomicards, Cthulhu Crusades, and Loony Quest.

Hey there everyone,
We’ve made it to Saturday, so that once again means it’s time for a Review Roundup. A bit lighter this week than usual. I’m sure that’s due to Gen Con last weekend. I expect, though, that the next couple weeks will be pretty full of new reviews. I know several reviewers were getting copies of the new CMON games, at least.

Also: We’re looking into what’s up with the TGN Blogs page. We’ll let you know when we find out anything.

Anyway, as for today, we’ve got: Battle of the Bands, Get Adler, Super Hack Override, Beneath Nexus, Legends of Andor New Heroes Expansion, Warmachine Cephalyx Mind Slaver & Drudges, Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition, Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu, Tyrants of the Underdark, Animals On Board, Farmageddon: Farm Fresh Edition, and Stellar Conflict.

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

Welcome once again to Saturday. It’s been quite a morning over here. Rather busy for a Saturday. Biggest thing I’ve been working on is my decision to magnetize my Betrayal at Calth set (yes, this means it’s not 100% assembled yet. The games I’ve been playing of it have been using stand-in figs for much of it. It happens). The only problem comes from maneuvering small, fiddly pieces that, very literally, will move on their own. As such, I have glue all over my fingers. Thankfully, though, on at least one occasion, that’s helped me when my drill bit slipped and instead of giving me a scrape, it just gouged the glue that’d built up there. So, an asset hidden in a liability.

But that’s a story for when I post the review later today. At the moment, we’ve got other reviews/previews to deal with.

In this batch we have: Late French Napoleonic Infantry from Perry Miniatures and Warlord Games, Dark Moon, Clockwork Kingdom, Queen of the Hill, Dice Masters: The Amazing Spider-Man, Conquest at Kismet, Barony, Star Wars Armada Wave 2 Ships, Tides of Time, Pentoggle, Mars Attacks Miniatures Game, Risk: Star Wars Edition, Space Cadets: Away Missions, Bomb Squad, Escape the Nightmare, and T.I.M.E Stories.

From the post:

You guys surely are aware that MDF terrain has been all the rage for the past three, four years or so. Today I’ll look at the offerings of some MDF from Germany – the Control Station kit from Tactical Terrains.

Tactical Terrains have been around for a while now. They certainly have been in the game of the whole MDF terrain craze early on. First time I came into contact with their stuff was when I got into Infinity a few years ago and played on a table with some pieces of theirs at my local gaming store.

Last year I realized I simply have too little in the way of 28mm wargaming terrain so I picked up a Tactical Terrain kit that had cought my eye before – the Kontrollstation.

Battle Brush Studios review Warlord Games’ T-34/85

Battle Brush Studios gives us their thoughts on the Warlord Games’ T-34/85 kit in this new article.

From the post:

Just over a year ago Warlord Games added the Soviet T-34/85 to their small range of plastic 28mm World War Two vehicles. This tank kit is what I take a closer look at today.

The T-34 surely was the most influential tank of the war. When the first version of the vehicle showed up at the Eastern front in 1941 it was a complete shock to the German army and proved to be superior to any German tank of the time. Only when the Panzer IV’s later versions and the Panther came along the German army again had tanks to match the T-34.

Battle Brush Studios reviews British Infantry box from Wargames Factory

Battle Brush Studios has posted a review of the plastic British Infantry box from Wargames Factory.

From the article:

It has been a while since my last review of a Wargames Factory kit, but recently I was approached by WGF’s lovely sales people if I was free to review their latest release – the American War of Independence British Infantry box.

The models in this review were supplied by Wargames Factory. I prefer to point this out when ever I receive review copies just you guys know. I always aim to write my reviews in an honest and unbiased fashion because otherwise there would not be much point to them, right?

I would also like to point out that I’m not an expert on the American War of Independence so if you find any bits I or the models got wrong feel free to correct them in the comments section.

With all of this out of the way, let’s dig in!

Battle Brush Studio Review: 28mm Sd.Kfz.251 Ausf.C from Warlord Games

Battle Brush Studio takes a look at the Sd.Kfz.251 Ausf.C for Bolt Action from Warlord Games and gives you their thoughts on the subject.

From the review:

I’m a highly irrational person with no sense of proportion or decency. This is why I got myself one of those “German 500 points” deals from Warlord Games for Christmas (despite already have some other WW2 figures at another scale). In regular terms this amounts to two infantry sections and five extra fellas, an MG42 medium machine gun team, a 81mm mortar team and a plastic Sd.Kfz.251 Ausf.C, one of Warlord Games’ plastic vehicles they recently released.

This is what I want to take a look at today.

From the review:

Today we are going to take a look at a 15mm model. British, lumbering, slightly old-fashioned, doesn’t like anti-air guns: it’s the Matilda Mk.II.
