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.
As I mentioned before, this week really seemed to go by fast. At least I thought so. Here it is, Saturday morning (well, it’s morning when I’m working on this post, anyway), getting ready for a full day of cooking (pot roast and banana pudding cheesecake pie) and thinking, “wasn’t it just Tuesday, like, yesterday?” Anyway, as my day is full of cooking, I hope your day is full of gaming. But what games should you play? Well, how about a list of reviews to help you make your choice? Seems like a good plan.
Today’s topics include: Arcadia Quest, Star Wars Risk, The Voyages of Marco Polo, Dominion: Adventures, Dragonwood, Treasure Hunter, Isle of Skye, Hocus, and Caylus.
Welcome back to Saturday, everyone. With any luck, you’re having some fun gaming with friends, or will be having such fun soon. I mean… it’s Saturday. Gaming is just what you do!
But at the moment, what we are doing is looking at some review from the past week.
This batch we have reviews/previews of: Broom Service, Dragonwood, Res Publica: 2230, Murano, Viceroy, Dropzone Commander, Game of Thrones LCG 2nd Edition, Systema Gaming Base-0 Storage Silo, and Warlord Games’ plastic M3A1 Half-Track.
