Board To Death reviews Sketch It

Board To Death continues their marathon review session with Sketch It!
Personally, I can’t draw a straight line with a ruler, let alone something that actually looks like something else.

From the review:

Roll the die, grab your pencil, and go! Sketch too quickly and the others will be baffled. Sketch too carefully, and you’ll miss your chance to score big. You don’t need to be an artist to excel at this sketching game. Win points for finishing early, guessing correctly and having other players guess your drawing. Unlike other drawing games, there’s no waiting turns in Sketch it! so it’s always non-stop, imagination fueled fun! Contains a whopping 720 items to sketch.

Board To Death reviews Cards Against Humanity

Board To Death has been busy with reviews. Their next one is for the Cards Against Humanity party game.

From the review:

Unlike most of the party games you’ve played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends.

The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question from a Black Card, and everyone else answers with their funniest White Card.

Board To Death reviews Soccero

Board To Death posted up a review of the Soccero board game.
Or for our non-US readers, Footballo.

From the review:

Soccero is the football boardgame that delivers the most exciting and realistic football experience! The game consists of two players or managers moving the player figures and the ball on the game board using dice. The player who has scored more goals by the end of the game wins. The game is designed to serve the skilled and strategic mind – but just as in real football, luck can always bring an unexpected challenge!

The Basic Rules make it easy and fun to get into the game. Later the managers may choose to follow the Extended Rules. The extended rules will add more realistic football features to the game turning it more challenging. The extended rules contain special situations such as goal kick, corner kick, throw-in, free kicks and penalty kick.

Board To Death reviews the Smash Up card game

Board To Death looks over the Smash Up card game and gives us their thoughts.
Honestly, I’ve played it and thought it was really fun. Just got myself a copy.

From the review:

What do pirates, ninjas, robots, zombies, aliens, wizards, tricksters, and dinosaurs have in common? They’re all trying to take over the world! But they can’t do it alone, so they’re teaming up.

Every combo brings a different experience in this fast-paced shufflebuilding game. Take two 20-card decks, smash them together, and then rock your opponents’ faces!

Each faction has a different style: pirates move cards, zombies come back from the discard pile, dinosaurs are just freaking huge. Each pairing creates different gameplay. And each game is a different throw-down!

Is Smash Up a game you can live without? Not if you’re awesome. Choose a side. Choose two! And start the carnage!

Board To Death reviews the DC Deck-Building Game

Board To Death gives you a look inside the new DC Deck-Building Game.

In the DC Comics Deck-building Game, you take on the role of Batman™, Superman™, or one of their brave and heroic allies in the struggle against the forces of Super-Villainy! While you begin armed only with basic combat maneuvers, you will add new, more powerful cards to your deck as you go, with the goal of defeating as many of the DC Comics Super-Villains as you can. In the end, the player who has accumulated the most Victory Points from the cards in his or her deck wins the game!

Board To Death posts Video review of Libertalia

Board to Death has another video game review up. This one’s for Libertalia the Pirate board game.

From the review:

In Libertalia, you must thwart the plans of competitive pirates over the course of three rounds while using cards that show the same crew members as your piratical comrades-in-arms. Yes, not only do they attack the same ships, but they employ the same type of ravenous scum that you do! Can you take advantage of the powers of your characters at the right time? Will you be outdone by a pirate smarter than you? Jump into the water and prove your tactical skills!

Board To Death reviews City of Horror

Board to Death has another of their video reviews up on their website. This one’s for City of Horror.

From the review:

City of Horror is a backstabbing survival-horror game. As in classic zombie movies, a shambling horde is invading the city. The goal is to survive the assault. (Un)fortunately, surviving often means sacrificing some of your fellow players to the undead…

Board To Death posts Video Review of LEVEL 7

Board to Death posted up video review they’ve made of Privateer Press’ Level 7 board game.

From the review:

You are a captive of Subterra Bravo, imprisoned in the facility’s deepest laboratory, the hall of nightmares known as LEVEL 7. Your singular goal is to escape, but to do that you will have to evade the human and inhuman denizens of this subterranean labyrinth before the entire base is locked down, sealing you in for the rest of your short, tormented life. Will you work together with your fellow prisoners to endure Subterra Bravo’s endless perils, or will you use them to secure your own escape? Ultimately, your chances of survival will depend on how well you manage your greatest weapon, which is also your greatest threat: fear itself.

LEVEL 7 [ESCAPE] is a semi-cooperative, story-driven survival-horror board game for 1–4 players with nerves of steel and a willingness to confront the impossible.

From the review:

Seize your friends’ pawns in this delightful game of capture with two unique ways to play! “Brainy” Got’Em! offers the strategic challenge of outsmarting and cornering your opponents with deliberately placed walls, while the tricky yet fun-for-all-ages “Bright” Got’Em! has the same goal of trapping your opponents, plus colorful surprises that will keep you on your toes!

Board To Death reviews Double Double Dominoes

Board To Death gives us another video review. This time it’s Double Double Dominoes (and no, that’s not 4 pizzas stacked up on top of one-another).

From the review:

Double Double Dominoes is a new approach to Dominoes. Score points by matching up dominoes over key areas of the game board. Play a Double Domino and double your score! Grab bonus points every time a player matches your position on the score track with a domino played… including yourself! But be careful not to award your opponents bonus points when you play. Double Double Dominoes is an addicting new spin on a classic game; it’s where dominoes and a conventional style game board come together to provide exceptional family entertainment.

Board To Death reviews Tsuro

Board To Death gives us another of their video reviews with Tsuro.

From the review:

Create your own journey with Tsuro…the Game of the Path.
Place a tile and slide your stone along the path created, but take
care! Other players’ paths can lead you in the wrong direction—or off the board entirely! Find your way wisely to succeed.
The rules are simple: you place a tile to build the next step for your stone to follow. Paths will cross and connect, and the choices you make affect all the journey across the board.
Stay the path—your journey begins here.

Board to Death reviews Endeavor

Board To Death reviewed yet another board game and put up a video of it on their website. This time it’s Endeavor.

From the review:

You represent a growing empire engaged in a glorious endeavor to expand your influence and status at home and across the great oceans of the world. Through exploration and shipping, colonization and war, you will struggle with the other great powers to control the resources and the regions that unfold before you. You must strike a balance between cultural, political, industrial and financial gains, making all of the right decisions to ensure your empire’s eventual dominance. The paths you take, the battles you wage, and the choices you make will determine the ultimate shape of the new world…

Board To Death reviews Condottiere

Board To Death has another of their video board game reviews up online for your viewing pleasure. This time it’s Condottiere.

From the review:

This game has a large deck of oblong cards and a fairly simple map of provinces in Renaissance Italy. The object of the game is to acquire four connected provinces. Game play is fairly simple as players use numbered cards to get the highest bid for a given territory. Unlike standard auctions, in which only the highest bidder loses their bid to the “bank”, in Condottiere, every player loses their bid. Players are, in effect, bidding the number of troops they are willing to lose to win the territory. However, several special effect cards shake the contests up and keep the players guessing.

The newer version (FFG) has a much smaller box, standard sized-cards, slightly tweaked rules, new card abilities and a lower price.

Carmarace, a new board game, up on IndieGoGo

Carmarace is a new board game produced by Board To Death TV (you’ve seen their reviews many times here on the site) and it’s up on IndieGoGo.

From the campaign:

You and your neighbours just won a unique collectible. First one to get there, claims the prize, but none of you have a car. Time to hitchhike!
Story

In Carmarace, everyone on your block just won the chance to pick up a limited edition collectable at the convention being held on the other side of the continent. There is only one of these collectables up for grabs and the first person there gets it! The problem? None of you have a car…

As players hit the streets, sky, and tracks, they will hop into different vehicles with different “Karma”. You might get really lucky and have a nice open road in front of you… or you might get an old lady crossing he street, which can slow you down. In this race, what goes around comes around. You’ll run into speeding tickets, road blocks, jet fighters, trains, cars, planes, old ladies, etc.

So, hitchhikers, head out there, put your thumb up, and hope for the best!

Board to Death reviews Mousquetaires du Roy

Board To Death has another of their video reviews up on their website. This one is for Mousquetaires du Roy.

From the review:

“Mousquetaires du Roy” is based on the novel “The three Musketeers” from Alexandre Dumas.

The Musketeers (a team of one to four players) are fighting against Milady to find the Queen’s pendants before end of the game. Meanwhile, they also have to defeat the plots in several places (Le Louvre, La Rochelle…).

A turn begins with Milady playing plots/cards, and program secretely a destination.

Then, each musketeer (D’artagnan, Portos, Aramis or Athos) has 3/4 actions to perform amongst: move, draw a card, get equipments, exchange cards/equipments, do a challenge in one of his 4 characteristics, perform a fight against one of Richelieu’s guards, reinforce La Rochelle… Milady can reveal herself and send Rochefort to fight the Musketeers.

Board To Death reviews Split

Board To Death has a video review of the game Split up on their website. It’s good stuff.

From the review:

SPLIT features the patented 104-card SPLIT deck of cards.
SPLIT card ‘halves’ are placed one above/below the other to create ‘whole’ cards. Make a match and you can place a chip or chips onto the game board. The first player or team to ‘split the board’ by connecting any one side of the game board to its opposite side with game chips, WINS!
SPLIT is a great game of strategy that will have you outsmarting, blocking and driving your opponent to the brink.
Note – the SPLIT cards can also be used like a regular deck of playing cards. You can separate the cards into two decks.

Board To Death reviews Game of Thrones board game

Board To Death put up a rather extensive review of the Game of Thrones board game on their website, including (as always) a video and a lot of other analysis. Check it out.

From the review:

Nearly ten years ago, FFG published A Game of Thrones: The Board Game, Christian Petersen’s gripping interpretation of the intrigue, diplomacy, and warfare of George R.R. Martin’s epic fantasy realm. Since then, the Iron Throne has changed hands countless times and in thousands of homes, with alliances broken on the battlefield and friendships strained by sudden treachery. At the same time, the A Game of Thrones: The Board Game experience gradually evolved with the release of two expansions, resulting in an epic experience that’s been printed in ten languages throughout the world.

Board To Death reviews Train of Thought

Board To Death has a video review up on their website for the board game Train of Thought. It’s worth a watch.

From the review:

Train of Thought is a party word game. Players take turns trying to get opponents to guess a particular word, giving only a 3 word clue – and one of those words must be from a prior answer! For each clue given, each player may make 1 guess. If none are correct, the clue-giver creates another clue, using one of the guesses and up to 2 other words.

When the word is correctly guessed, the guessing player and the clue giver each get one point, and the clue giver draws a new card and continues making clues. Get as many as you can in 2 minutes!

Train of Thought really makes you think differently than other games in the genre. An excellent party game!

Board To Death reviews Pamplona

Board to Death TV has another video review up on their website. This time it’s for the bull-racing game Pamplona. No BS.

From the review:

Pamplona attracts over 1 million visitors each year in July for its nine-day San Fermín festival, originated in the 14th century. The daily Running of the Bulls, so dear to Hemingway, is its highest profile event. With is simple yet refined mechanics, Pamplona – Viva San Fermín! Faithfully reproduces the run in all its aspects: bravery, euphoria, adrenaline, but also tactics and management. Players must run all of the 4 sectors of the race, escaping from the opponents’ bulls and steers, while trying to gore or trample the opponents using their own. Pamplona – Viva San Fermín! is not a common race. The winner is not necessarily the first runner to cross the finishing line, but the one show shows the most courage.

Board To Death TV reviews the Walking Dead board game

Board To Death TV has a video review up on their website for the Walking Dead board game. Have a look-see.

In The Walking Dead Board game, only the strong survive. The weak turn into walkers, and then turn against their former friends! Fight your way through zombie-infested Atlanta with your fellow survivors. Grab some weapons to clear a path. Visit destinations like the department store, the police station, old folk’s home, and the CDC. Find the tools you’ll need to live another day like weapons, allies, a car, or a swift mount. Take on the role of Rick, Andrea, or one of the other hapless survivors and scrounge for sweet weapons like a Shotgun or Crossbow. Keep your eyes open for new allies, but watch your back! When supplies start running low, it’s every man for himself. If you can make it back to camp with enough gear to defend yourself and those you still care for, you win!
