Review Roundup

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.

I hope you’re enjoying your Saturday. I’m working on articles for the site. There’s 3 review articles in the works as you read this. Not 100% certain on order they’ll be posted yet (that sort of stuff changes all the time, if you can believe it), or exact dates, but expect them soon. But while those you’re going to have to wait a little bit longer, the wait is over for a bunch of other reviews, as it’s time for our Review Roundup.

This time around we have: Kromlech General Otto and Orc Freak, Boss Monster 2, Tash-Kalar Nethervoid Expansion, Tumult Royale, Project Dreamscape, Dwarves Inc, The Best Treehouse Ever, Firefly: Kalidasa Expansion, CV, Star Wars: Rebellion, and Patchwork.

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

Hello there, all you gaming friends out there in gamer-land! Seems for the moment that it’s actually going to be a bit winter-like here in Atlanta. At least for a couple days. No, it’s not like the winters I remember in Chicago, but if we had a winter like that down here, this place would never dig out of that. The whole state would shut down until June. It would be a nightmare.

However, a blizzard’s-worth of reviews here today is just fine. (Because transitions!)

Today we’ve got articles on: X-Wing Miniatures Game, Star Wars Armada, Imperial Assault, Conflict of Heroes – The Eastern Front Solo Expansion, Queen’s Necklace, Terrakami Games Sci-Fi Containers, Crusader A15 by Rubicon Models, Bountytown, Between Two Cities, Bad Beets, Ultimate Warriorz, Jamaica, The Gallerist, Mombasa, Ninja Camp, Shakespeare, Cthulhu Realms, Eternal Dynasty, Outer Earth, Fool’s Gold, and Dark Age Z.

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

Hello to everyone on this cold Saturday. I hope you’re having a good day. I’m cracking nuts… for that fruitcake I’ve been telling you all about all week. They don’t use the phrase, “nutty as a fruitcake” for nothing, you know. I hope you have your own projects you’re working on, be they gaming-related, culinary-related, or just whatever else you feel like doing.

What I feel like doing at the moment, though, is taking a small break from making small breaks (these are the jokes, people!) and share with you the reviews I’ve come across in the past week.

Today’s articles feature: Black Hat, Ships, Above and Below, Traders of Osaka, The Bloody Inn, Hangtown, Rum & Bones, The World of Smog, Avarium Academy, The Builders: Antiquity, T.I.M.E.

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

Hey everyone,
I hope you made it through Black Friday alright. I had Thanksgiving 2: Thank Harder here at the bear den. Made myself another turkey and side-dishes and enjoyed a relaxing day. Then I got out my stock pot and made about a gallon of turkey stock with the bones. I’ll be good for turkey soup for the next year, I’d say.

But that’s as may be, it’s time for some reviews. Let’s get into it.

Today we have articles on: Magic the Gathering Arena of the Planeswalkers, Dirty Tactics Toolbox for Pathfinder, Battle Foam P.A.C.K Molle Accessories, Mafia de Cuba, Porta Nigra, Risk: Star Wars 2015 Edition, Flip City, Xia: Legends of the Drift System, and Doomtown Reloaded.

And we are once more awash in the glow that is Saturday.
Isn’t it just lovely?
To all my friends downtown at Dragon Con, “Hey there!” Me? I won’t be getting closer any than my Kroger to downtown this weekend. But that’s ok, because I’m making pumpkin cookies (with cream cheese centers).

Welcome to another Saturday, beautiful readers. We’re in a bit of the “calm before the storm.” The last weekend before Gen Con. I did some grocery shopping specifically for the trip (granola bars and cough drops to have in my satchel as I run all around Indy). Next will be making a packing list to make sure I’ve got everything I need while there. What sort of prep do you guys have going on?

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

I, as I mentioned in my post yesterday, am more-than-likely playing 2nd edition D&D when this will be posted to the site.
Some friends I know have a long-running campaign and the DM is writing me in as an occasionally-recurring NPC. Not sure what my character will be (at time of typing), but it should be a good time.

Anyway, that’s as may be. Right now, it’s time for some game reviews.

In this batch, we have reviews/previews of: Boss Monster 2, Dark City 30 Corner Apartment Building and Gargoyles, Golem Arcana, The Great War, Apotheca, Lord of the Rings board game, Hocus, Paradox, Kaleidoscope, Infinity, Penny Press, Argonauts, Argent: The Consortium, and Star Wars Armada.

Hey everyone. Welcome to another Sunday Edition here on TGN.
Now, some of you might’ve noticed that we ran Sunday Snippets on Saturday and are doing the Review Roundup here on Sunday.
I’m… not entirely sure how that happened actually. I think all the necromantic energy from the Zombicide previews got to me and confused up my brain! All day yesterday felt like Sunday. It wasn’t until like 4-5pm that I was like, “Wait… it’s Saturday!” Anyway, we’ve got your reviews for you today.

This week we’ve got reviews/previews of: Pathfinder Battles: The Lost Coast Booster, Kromlech Orc Character Set, 12 Realms: Ancestors Legacy, K2, XenoShyft, Fief France 1429, Samurai Spirit, Deus, and Galactic Strike Force.

Welcome to another Saturday. This week went by quick (at least for me). I hope you’ve been enjoying the Adepticon photos we’ve been posting. Be sure to check out the ones of the Desert Hydra. Makes me almost wish I played Skorne. I might get one of those just to paint up.

Well, well, well. Here we are at another Saturday. I hope that those of you out in Boston for PAX East are having a good time, enjoying the cold and snow and all that. Here in Atlanta, it’s rainy and decently warm. Not the greatest weather to be outside, so that’s why everyone should be inside at a gaming table, enjoying this wonderful hobby world of ours.

Anyway, it’s also time for another Review Roundup.

TGN Saturday Edition: Reviews in the News

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.
