Blame Canada (Day), but it seems that the post got eaten by the system. It happens occasionally, but it’s alright. We can rebuild it. We can make it stronger, faster, better… Or mostly the same but with this new intro.
Anyway, this week we have: Werewords, Caverna: Cave vs Cave, Not Alone, Evolution: The Beginning, Black Hat, Big Bang 13.7, Kingdomino, Match Madness, Lady Richmond, Century: Spice Road, Homes: 2 Player Card Game, Coldwater Crown, Quadropolis, and This War Of Mine.
It’s Saturdaaaaaaaaaaay! Woooooooo!
Due to the rain, my initial plans for the day fell through. But I’m hoping to rebound and maybe hang out with some people here and just chill. Yes, just me, them, and a whole pan of homemade banana pudding cheesecake…
But at the moment, I know what you all really want are the day’s reviews.
Today we have: Ethnos, Founders of Gloomhaven, Macroscope, Dragonstone Mine, Sheep & Thief, Gyrating Hamsters, Pests, Potion Explosion iOS, Salem, Exit: The Game, Lorenzo il Magnifico, Covil, Meduris, Saltlands, The Flow of History, Sagrada, The Red Dragon Inn: Battle for Greyport, and Ulock!.
Saturday! Glorious Saturday!
As you read this, I’m at a library that a friend works at. They’re having their first Board Game Day and so I’m playing some board games. Actually, there’s a very high likelihood that I’m playing Guild Ball, which isn’t really a board game, but it’s still alright.
Anyway, while I’m doing that, I’ve also got some review articles for you.
Today I have: Stolen Treasures, Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space: Ultimate Edition, Statecraft, Shinobi, Terminator Genisys Heavy Weapon Endoskeletons, Ice Cool, The CopyCat, Stak Bots Red, 51st State, Tyrants of the Underdark, StoryLine: Fairy Tales, Dr. Eureka, and Istanbul: Mocha & Baksheesh.
It’s another Saturday.
Through an odd turn of events, I’m in the office. So Monday and Tuesday I was home because I was sick. Now it’s Saturday and I’m in the office because my internet is broken at home (overnight storm fried my modem). But all is well. Things are getting done.
Anyway, as for the roundup, we have: Hoard, ManaSurge, Africana, Vikings Gone Wild, Empires At Sea, Adorable to Horrible, Secret Hitler, Rhino Hero, Descent: Road to Legend, Isle of Skye, Tanks, Escape From the Aliens in Outerspace, Masmorra: Dungeons of Arcadia, and New Earth.
It’s Saturday. Those of you that are at KingdomCon, be sure to selfie responsibly. #RossFace
For me, it’s the weekend before CMON Expo, so I’m super-busy getting things put together for the show. Lots to do, both work-related and just other things I need to get done.

Good thing it happens fairly regularly.
So let’s not worry about ceremony too much. Let’s get on with the reviews.
Today we have: Roll for the Galaxy, Magic the Gathering Arena of the Planeswalker – Battle for Zendikar Expansion, The Siblings Trouble, the Patchwork App, Circus Flohcati, Lanterns: The Harvest Festival, Star Wars: Rebellion, Odin’s Ravens, My Happy Farm, The Golden Ages: Cults & Culture, The Last Spike, and Piratoons.

Ah yes, Zarathustra couldn’t’ve said it better, himself.
It’s Saturday. I hope yours is treating you well.

If you’re in the US and you’re celebrating Independence Day, be sure to be careful with those fireworks.
I’m taking a moment from the cooking that I’m doing. What am I making? Well, I’ve got hamburgers and hot dogs that I’ll have later. I’m going to make some crawfish gumbo. On the sweet side of things, I’m making cheesecake with strawberry glaze and then chip’n’mint cookies.
But that’s as may be. At the moment, we’ve got our Review Roundup.
This weeks reviews/previews include: Unleashed RPG, Spyfall, Cockroach Poker Royal, Specter Ops, Ember: Shadow of the Demon, Star Realms: Crisis Expansion, Tuscany, Patrol Angis, Don’t Be That Guy, and Swords and Bagpipes.
Saturday night’s alright for gaming. Well, all of Saturday is alright for gaming, really. At the time this posts, there might or might not be a TPK happening. For my player’s sake, hopefully they’ll not just “charge at the enemy” as their go-to strategy. But… that’s PCs for you.
But that’s as may be. In the meantime, we’ve got a collection of review articles we’ve collected from the week.
This week’s batch of reviews/previews includes: Homeland: The Game, Monstrous, Welcome to the Dungeon, Dimension, Ether Wars, Immortal, Sultan’s Library, and Forbidden Stars.
Hello again TGN Readers and welcome once more to Saturday. With any luck, you’re gaming. I know I am. We’ve got one of our guys in my D&D game moving to Ohio this summer, so we’re trying to get in as many sessions as we can before he goes.
As per usual, we’ve collected together various review articles we’ve found during the week and present them to you here now.
In this week’s articles, we’ve got reviews/previews of: Roll for the Galaxy, Gruff, Alchemists, Chaosmos, Elysium, Arboretum, Battle Sheep, Ystari, Spike, Patchwork, XenoShyft, Salvation Road, Tide of Iron: Next Wave, Stones of Fate, and Dungeon Crawler Fantasy RPG Miniatures Sets 1 to 3.
Even when I was younger and had a bit more disposable income than I do now, I always looked to reviews (mostly through my friends) to let me know if a game was worth picking up or not. Reviews are a vital resource so as to not end up with a new game/model that will just sit on your shelf, collecting dust, but instead see plenty of table time.
Here’s a list of reviews we found over this past week.
Read down to the bottom, if you wouldn’t mind, as I’ve got some questions for you and a contest as well.

Whether you’re selling silk, spices or camels everything is worth Rupees, the most Rupees at the end of the round wins the Maharaja seal of excellence, first player to get two seals wins the game.
Breacher18 gives us their thoughts on Chrononauts by Looney Labs in this review article.
From the review:
Forget your TARDIS and your DeLorean because you are not going to be needing them with this Chrononauts!
Chrononauts is a time travelling card game by the creators of the popular Fluxx. The Set-up is fairly simple, there is a grid of cards that is always set-up in the same order, this is the TimeLine made up from Ripplepoint/Linchpin cards.
