Hey everyone. I’m sure a lot of you are reading this after getting back from Salute. If that’s the case… *envy-waves in your direction* I wish I’d been there. Maybe someday. But for those of us in the States, Australia, and elsewhere that can only live vicariously through your photos and videos, we wish we were there. In the meantime, let’s get some reviews.
This week we have: Lotus, The Exiled: Siege, Ancient Terrible Things, Ticket to Ride: Rails and Sails, and Hanamikoji, Yamatai.
Yes, I know it’s Tuesday and not Saturday. But Saturday I was preoccupied wondering how he (Jonah) eats and breathes, and other science facts. And then Monday I was recouping from the weekend of laughing my ass off. So today’s going to be a bit of a catch-up day. Anyway, let’s get to it.
Today we have: Phara-Oh-Oh!, Res Publica: 2230AD, Quests of Valeria, Vinhos Deluxe Edition, Mess Machine, Tokaido App, T.I.M.E Stories: Expedition: Endurance, and Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle.
It’s Saturday, the day that’s full of possibilities (Ok, so every day is full of possibilities, but it just feels moreso on Saturday to me). With any luck, your day is full of gaming.
But at the moment, I know you’re all interested in what sort of reviews we’ve got for you. Well, I won’t make you wait any longer (Saturday won’t go on forever, after all).
Today we have: Dice of Crowns, Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Mummy’s Mask, The Undercity: Black River Irregulars Expansion, Legendary: Deadpool Expansion, Firefly: Crime and Punishment Expansion, Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle, Tokaido App, Gloomhaven, Potion Explosion App, Planetarium, V-Commandos, Maximum Apocalypse, Jump Drive, The Colonists, and Stinker.
And once more, we have made it to Saturday.
Isn’t that just grand? I certainly think it is. Hope you’ve got yourself some gaming lined up, because… I mean, that’s the way things should be, amirite?
Anyway, let’s get to those reviews I know you so desperately desire.
Today we have: Manaforge, Magmeda Monsters, Menu Masters, Coal Baron, Model Box – The Monthly Subscription Box for the Miniature Hobbyist, City of Kings, Saboteur, Morocco, They Who Were 8, and 7 Wonders: Duel Pantheon Expansion.
And we’ve come to another Saturday. Ah, the possibilities for today. I’m sure a lot of you are spending it at Adepticon. Me? I’ve picked up a bunch of snacks and some drinks and am going to watch some MST3K on Netflix. Because I’m cool like that. 😉
Anyway, I know what you’re all here for isn’t my choice of fizzy beverage, but for reviews. So let’s get to it.
Today we have: Realm-Master, Unlock, WizKids Unpainted Miniatures, Arkham Horror The Card Game, Bushi No Yume, Ronin, Element, Guns & Steel: Renaissance, Bloc by Bloc, The Oracle of Delphi, Dragoon: The Rogue and Barbarian Expansion, RPG Coasters, Kingsport Festival: The Card Game, Running With the Bulls, Magic Maze, Faith: A Garden in Hell, and Moons.
Ah, Saturday. And it’s Games Day at the Milton Library. So, of course, that means it’s raining. Funny how that seems to be happening. 3rd weekend of the month, we’ve got some rain. But, seeing as I like rain, it’s all good. Rain and gaming. Seems great. Anyway, we’ve got our reviews for you here. Let’s get to them so I can go back to gaming.
Today we have: Airecon 4, Faith: A Garden in Hell, Original Laser Design Dark Age MDF Buildings, Banzai, Battles in the Age of War, Killer Katanas II, Mystic Miracles iOS, Incorporated, Grand Prix, Deep Sea Adventure, Ethnos, This Belongs in a Museum, Galactic Rebellion, and BrilliAnts.
It… was quite a week, I have to say. Very busy. With all the goings-on for GAMA, I almost forgot that PAX East was going on. Hope everyone is having a good time out there. I’m, obviously, not there. I will be at Adepticon in a couple weeks, though. That’ll be fun. Love going back to Chicago (my homeland). But that’s a bit away. In the meantime, let’s get you the reviews you so desperately desire.
Today we have: Inis, Dungeons of Infinity, War of the Ring: Anniversary Edition, Warhammer Quest: Shadows Over Hammerhal, Fidelitas, JrassAttack, Wok on Fire, Avalance at Yeti Mountain, Citadels, Council of Blackthorn, Escape from Colditz, Stratos, Adrenaline, Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition, Flag Dash, Snowblind: Race for the Pole, The Money Pit of Oak Island, and Dice Stars.
Well, it seemingly took an eternity, but it is now Saturday.
And, as I expected, from the time I clocked out until even now seems to have gone by very quickly. So, by the time I finish this, I guess it’ll be time for Monday’s Terrain corner…
But that’s as may be.
Today we have: Cauldron Master, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shadows Of The Past Board Game Review, April O’Neil Hero Pack For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shadows of the Past, Dice City, Picassimo, The Who Were 8, Cosmic Run: Rapid Fire, Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age, Dragoon, Dubai: Rebuild the Ruins, Mage Wars: Paladin vs. Siren, Firefly: Crime and Punishment, and Frostgrave Expansions.
Hello Saturday! How are you? Is everything going well? Of course it is! It’s Saturday!
So, let’s not wait around. Let’s get right to the reviews so we can get back to it being Saturday. Personally, I’m thinking of watching a movie and questioning Netflix’s algorithms in what “more like this” really means…
Today we have: The Pirate Republic, Kingdomino, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Board Game – Shadows of the Past, Adrenaline, Ave Roma, Hero Realms, Food Truck Champion, Sorcerers’ Skirmish, Carcassonne: Amazonas, Oceanos, The Flow of History, Citadels, Broken Legions, Haspelknecht, and GKR: Heavy Hitters.
First part of the weekend is already a success. The pizza last night was pretty much everything I could’ve hoped for. It’s nice when a week-long cooking project turns out good (ok, the pizza doesn’t really take a week to make, but parts I was able to do ahead of time like render the bacon and such was done along the way, instead of doing it all last night). Today it’s all about the Board Game Day at the Milton Library. If you’re in the Atlanta area, stop on by.
But that’s for later (well, later to me now as I’m typing this, not later from the time you read this, since I’m typing this at 6am and will be gaming at 2pm when it posts).
Right now we’ve got reviews of: London, Colosseum, Ophidian 2360, Ore-Some, Critter Combat, Gloomhaven, Runebound: The Gilded Blade Expansion, Mage Wars: Arena Paladin vs Siren Expansion, Conquest of Speros, Castles of Burgundy, Flamme Rouge, and Ponzi Scheme.
Don’t know about you, but I’m going to be putting together a pair of Guild Ball players (Granite and Veteran Siren) that Ray picked up for me at LVO. Then I’m gonna make my own protein bars (like Clif bars, for those that know about them) since I’m trying to get from the 110 stone that I currently am down to maybe an even 100. I also finished watching Black Books, so I need to find something else to watch. But that’s as may be. What you all want right now are reviews. Let’s get those to you.
Today we have: Multiuniversum, Multiuniversum: Project Cthulhu, Hero Realms, Hero Realms Character Packs, The Mountains Rise, Legends of Andor: Journey to the North, Band Manager: Backstage Clash, Age of Sigmar, Imhotep, Cavern Tavern, Superhot, Forged in Steel, The Civilized Guide to Tabletop Gaming, Pirate Lords, and Steel Arena.
Hello Saturday. The Chuck Mangione from yesterday has switched over to Danger Doom, because that’s the sort of mood I’m in. Other than that… not much happening on this side of the screen. A chill Saturday on a chilly Saturday here in Atlanta (seriously, we’ve actually got winter for a couple days before it’s supposed to get back up to the 60s next week). But for the moment, let’s get you some game reviews.
Today we have: Runebound: Fall of the Dark Star, Runebound: Caught in a Web, Castle Panic: Engines of War, Pests, Gloomhaven, Mysterium Digital Edition, Insider, Hands in the Sea, Villages of Valeria, and Covert.
Hey everyone. Congratulations as you’ve made it to the weekend. Saturday is here and that means it’s time to sit back and relax some. Hopefully you’ve got something gaming-related going on. I might be working (on a super-secret project that’s set to revolutionize the gaming world!!! … 😉 ), but it’s still at least gaming related. I also have a fresh 12-pack of Mt. Dew Pitch Black. So it’s a good day. But anyway, let’s get to those reviews I know you all love so much.
Today we have: Bite Nite, Papayoo, Dungeon Busters, Steampunk Rally, Castle Panic Engine of War Expansion, Colt Express (iOS), Gangs of Cammorragh, Star Wars: Destiny, New York Slice, Burano, Mysterium App, Seasons, and Tyrants of the Underdark.
It’s another beautiful day here in Atlanta. The clouds are out. It’s raining. There was dense fog this morning.
What? You don’t think that’s beautiful weather?
You know what they call a place that has nothing but “beautiful, sunny days”? The desert. Relatively few things live there.
You know what they call a place that has rain all the time? The rain forest, some of the most bio-diverse and bio-dense areas of the planet! So there!
Ok… that got weirdly antagonistic for no reason. Maybe I should just go check out some game reviews. Yeah. That’s a good idea.
Today we have: Everzone, Portal, The Captain Is Dead, Triumvirate of the Imperium – Inquisitor Greyfax, Triumvirate of the Imperium – Belisarius Cawl, Raise Your Goblets, The Three Little Pigs, Concordia, Adrenaline, Hands in the Sea, Neuroshima Hex iPad Edition, 7 Wonders: Duel, Klask, Rise of Mafia, and Cavern Tavern.
It’s a beautiful Saturday here in Atlanta. The sun’s shining. It’s warm outside.
… Sounds like a perfect time to go to the LGS and stay inside, playing games all day! 😀
And to those dealing with ice up in the midwest, best to stay inside and play some games all day.
Long story short, it’s a good day to play some games. But what games? Well, you could check out these reviews and pick from there.
Today we have: Ulm, Orcs Must Die, Titan Race, Tavern’s Tales, Manhattan Project: Energy Empire, Doom, Flash Point: Extreme Danger, Praetor, The Daedalus Sentence, Twilight Struggle- Digital Version, Imhotep, Forged in Steel, Mi Tierra, Saloon Tycoon, Legendary Inventors, Flammer Rouge, Watch Your Mouth, Draconis Invasion, Ice Cool, Celestia, The Foreign King, Sub Terra, Wasteland Justice, Takenoko, and Drinking Quest Journey Into Draught.
Happy New Year, everyone! 2016 is finally over and 2017 stretches ahead of us. What will the new year bring? Hard to say, really (man, if only I knew how to tell the future…). But I hope it means a lot of gaming for you. But what games? Well, how about checking out some reviews to know that you buy just the ones you’ll like.
Looks like a lot of reviewers are taking a break for the holidays. We’ve just got one for you today.
It’s Christmas Eve and the first night of Hanukkah, so there’s a good chance you’re hanging out with friends and family. Hopefully that includes playing games of some sort. But how do you know which game might be the best? Good thing there’s reviews out there. And that’s just what we’re here with now.
Today we have: Power Grid, The Bermuda Crisis Discovery Dawning, Grand Prix, Colt Express App, Red7 App, Legendary Inventors, Congo, Master of Orion, Final touch, Great Western Trail, Captain Carcass, and The Networks.
Another Saturday, another Review Roundup.
It’s a calm and subdued Saturday here at the den. Just chillin’ for a cool, December day.
So, let’s just head over to today’s articles.
We’ve got: Rise of the Kage, Imhotep, Arkham Horror: The Card Game, Conan the Board Game Review, Dominion: Empires, Dicey Goblins, Theomachy, Microfilms, Clank!, and The Amberden Affair.
It’s officially the holiday shopping season. Gamers all over the world will be getting and giving gifts. But what games should you buy? You don’t want to chance your money on something you won’t end up playing. As such, Reviews are a great way to save money, letting you know how a game works so you can only get the ones you want. So let’s save you some money.
Today we have: True Crime Legends, Dream Home, Medici, Dragon Punch, 4 Gods, Garbage Day, A Feast for Odin, Amun-Re, Jorvik, and Santorini.
It’s time once more for a Review Roundup. Why? Because it’s Saturday! Woo!
As you read this, I’m hanging out with some friends, playing games. Took over a group of favorites, and hopefully will get me a new Guild Ball opponent, too. I also baked brownies, because I can’t go to a friend’s place empty-handed. Hopefully you’re doing something similar, be it at a friend’s place, your garage, or your LGS.
But anyway, I know you’re really here for those reviews.
Today we have: Legends Untold, Mage Wars Academy: Warlock & Priestess Expansions Review, Aggressor: Recon, Shadows of Brimstone, Tambuzi, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle, Kill Doctor Lucky: Deluxe 19.5th Anniversary Edition, Tanks: Panther vs Sherman, Junk Art, Roll Player, and Potion Explosion.
And we once more find ourselves deposited here in Saturday. Yayweekend! I’ve already had some good gaming going on. Got a game of Guild Ball in right after work last night. Masons (me) vs. Butchers (Ray). Technically speaking, I won. But really, I lost. Ray fudged his activation order on the last turn and it allowed me to win, 12-10 against his Butcher. But, really, he should’ve won 12-6 or 12-10. Masons don’t like going against a team that negates armor and does extra damage.
As for today, got our first session of a new D&D game. Should be fun. Most of us haven’t played 5th yet, so it’ll be an interesting learning experience.
But that’s as may be. I know you’re really all here to check out the reviews.
Today we have: Sushi Go Party, Legends of Andor: Part II Journey to the North, Knightmare Live, Agricola: Family Edition, La Granja, Schotten-Totten, Heir to the Pharaoh, The Godfather: A New Don, Neuroshima Hex: Dancer Expansion, and Arcane Academy.
Well, my previous plans for the day sort of fell through. No worries, though. The day will not be ruined.
I might just see if my N64, that I brought back from my parent’s place last time I visited, still works or not.
If so, hello Ocarina of Time!
But in the meantime, let’s get you some reviews, shall we?
Today we have: Tides of Madness, Smiths of Winterforge, 3 Wishes, Garden Adventures, Top That, Happy Salmon, Kenjin, The Oracle of Delphi, Retreat to Darkmoor, Arkham Horror: The Card Game, Escape From Colditz, and Onitama.
*puts on Elton John garb*
Saturday! Saturday! Saturday!
Saturday! Saturday! Saturday!
Saturday! Saturday! Saturday night’s alright!
Ok, so it’s not actually Saturday night yet, but it will be soon (well, for me. Some of you are already well into Saturday night. Bloody time zones). Anyway, I know what you want. You want some reviews. So let’s get to it.
Today we have: Package, Zombicide Black Plague, GAMEMAT EU’s Battle Mats, Sprue Grey: Wargame Hobby Magazine – The Golden D6 Tutorial Issue, D-Day at Omaha Beach, The Walking Dead: All Out War, Beer Empire, The Undercity, Haspelknecht, Pursuit of Happiness, Dracula’s Feast, Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small iOS, Agricola: Family Edition, Dwarf War, and Get Rich Quick.
Always a fan of the weekend, as you all know. Today I’m just kind of hanging out before going to a friend’s birthday party later. Should be a good time had by all. But at the moment, I’m bringing you those review articles that I know you so desperately desire.
Today we have: Mechs vs. Minions, Gorechosen, Star Trek: Panic, Happy Party, Hit Z Road, Dastardly Dirigibles, Loony Quest, Eclipse, Battle of the Bands Review, The Pioneers Program, Pocket Quest, Oh Gnome You Don’t, and Arena of the Planeswalkers: Shadows Over Innistrad Expansion.
It’s also October.
I mean, seriously, can it really get that much better than this? Oh, yeah, *puts on some Type O Negative while working on the post* There we go.
Anyway, you want ’em, so here’s your reviews for the week.
Today we have: Patchwork, Epic Roll: Eclipse, Arcadia Quest, Tutti Frutti, True Messiah, Eclipse, Trickerion: Legends of Illusion, Dodge Dice, Grifters, Codenames: Pictures, and Agamemnon.
It’s that time again, everyone. It’s Saturday. When you read this, it’ll be at least 2pm, Eastern. But for me, currently, it’s 5:30am. I’ve got a group of friends coming over for some gaming starting at 9am and have a bunch to get done before that. We’ll probably get in some Ascension, Blokus, maybe Dogs of War. All good stuff. Also, we’ll probably talk about characters for a D&D game that’s starting to coalesce. But that’s as may be, in the meantime, I need to type up your Review Roundup for the day.
Today we have: Arcadia Quest, The Pioneers Program, Dungeon Saga, The Hunt for the Ring, Tripods & Triplanes, Brides & Bribes, Terraforming Mars, Guild Ball, Cry Havoc, Flip City and Flip City: Reuse, Steam Time, M.U.L.E., Brick Party, and Snowdonia.
*runs around with my arms over my head*
Ok, enough of that. Let’s get down to business. You want to see review articles and I’m here to supply them (it is one of the most-popular posts of the week, after all).
Today we have: Sky Dynasty, Inis, Flash Point: Dangerous Waters, My Village, Death Pit Duels, Mombasa, Hold Your Breath, Tiny Epic Western, Colony, Z War One Damnation, Nightlancer, and Scythe.
And we’ve once more made it to the weekend successfully. The natural order has been maintained. I mean, just think if we woke up the day after Friday and it was, like, Wednesday or something. Man, that’d be a mess. But, as I said, that’s not happened. As such, we should get on with the regular Saturday routine and get you some reviews.
Today we have: Kill the King, Captain Sonar, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition, The Dragon & Flagon, No Honor Among Thieves, Via Nebula, Behind the Throne, Star Trek: Ascendancy, Antarctica, Costa Rica, Heroes of Normandie iOS, Lost Woods, Battle Gnomes, and Ice Cool.
So, since I spend all my regular workdays gaming, I will often step away from it on my time off. You know, you don’t want to get burned out on a thing. However, last weekend and this, I’ve been all-out gaming just about every chance I can! Last week was game day at the Milton, GA. library. Yesterday a friend came over for some Guild Ball. Today I’m headed to another friend’s (and co-worker) house for more gaming, along with Italian beef and fresh-baked cookies.
So that’s what I’m doing. How about you (besides reading this article)?
Speaking of this article, this week we have: Deadzone 2nd Edition, Manhattan Project: Chain Reaction, Mission to Mars, Tumult Royale, Expo 1906, The Cohort, MODX, The Siblings Trouble, Super Motherload, 13 Days: The Cuban Missile Crisis, Fury Of Dracula, Dead of Winter, Potion Explosion, Dastardly Dirigibles, Apollo XIII, Snow Tails, Kune v Lakia, Deathbot Derby, Game of Train, and Ice Cool.
Hey there, everyone. We’ve once more made it to The Weekend. Isn’t it just grand? As you’re reading this, I’m hanging out at my friend’s Library, playing some games. It’s a good time had by all.
But that’s me. As for you, you’re here to check out some game reviews. So let’s get to it.
Today we have: Ice Cool, Game of Trains, Sprue Grey: Wargame Hobby Magazine – The Golden D6 Tutorial Issue Six, Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu, Gloobz, Sushi Go Party!, 13 Days, Junk Art, Lotus, Beyond Baker Street, Rise of Man: Stone Age, and Quarto.
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.
The “busy day” at Gen Con is in full swing. I’m running around like crazy trying to get photos of things. What you’re reading now is past me telling you about current me. But past me knows that current you also wants to read about some game reviews. So let’s get to it.
Today we have: Scythe, Medici, Evolution: Climate, Kraftwagen, Bear Valley, Oh My Goods, Here, Kitty, Kitty, The Grizzled, Bureaunauts, Cigar Box Battle Mats, Viticulture, Euphoria, Old School Tactical, Star Bastards, and Ember.
It’s the Saturday before Gen Con. A week from now we’ll be shoulder-deep in the show.
Of course, that means this weekend is full of running around like a chicken with its head cut off, trying to get everything done before heading to Indy.
But, even with all the brouhaha, there’s time to bring you the reviews that you so desperately desire.
This week we have: Book of Nox Deluxe, Fishy Tactics, Agamemnon, Infinity Morat Rodoks, Tyrants of the Underdark, Scythe, Dungeon Busters, Dead of Winter: The Long Night, Portal: The Uncooperative Cake Acquistion Game, Vampire Hunters, Via Nebula, Antarctica, Titan Race, Agricola: Revised Edition, and Vikings on Board.
Congratulations! You’ve made it to Saturday! *throws a little party*
Mine’s been busy so far. We’re just a couple weeks out from Gen Con, and that means about a million little things to get done (along with a couple big things) before heading to the show. My “To Do” list is imposing, but with steady work, I’ll chew through it all.
*looks at list* Hmm, “Type up Review Roundup.”
Today we have: Sugi, Stak Bots, Food Fighters, Infinity Combined Army Onyx Force, Galaxy Defenders: Operation Strikeback Expansion, SET, Dragonwood, Millennium Blades, Beyond Baker Street, Dark Dealings, America, Fate of the Elder Gods, Burano, Happy Party, and My Village.
Hey there, everyone. I hope you’re enjoying your Saturday. Mine’s not the greatest, as I’m driving back from visiting my parents. Not that visiting my parents is bad. But the 8.5 hour drive back home is. Buh. No fun at all. But at least once I’m back home I’ll be able to get back into the groove of some gaming.
In the meantime, let’s get you some gaming reviews.
Today we have: VS 2PCG A-Force Expansion, Conflict of Heroes Guadalcanal, Shattered Void, Wake Up Cthulhu, Oh My Gods, Scape, Legendary Dice Throwers, Blood & Fortune, Histrio, Mistborn: House War, Celestia, and Morocco.
