Review Roundup

Woo! Saturday!
And I’m finally mostly over being sick. You never realize just how much you are thankful that you can breathe through your nose or take a couple breaths without coughing until that’s exactly the opposite of how you’re doing. Ah well. While I groove along to The Guess Who (because why not?), let’s get you some gaming reviews.

Review Roundup

Ok, so I was being a little facetious, saying that we were expecting a Snowpocalypse here in Atlanta, with the little bit of snow that was coming down at the time… but… yeah… we had a bit of a Snowpocalypse. That was the view from my front door last night and it was still much the same this morning. Thankfully, since then, the sun’s come out and much of it is melting. But still… yeah, quite a thing. Good day to stay in and do some gaming. But what games? Well, you can find out what games are like with the Review Roundup!

This week we have: Villages of Velaria, Pandemic Legacy: Season 2, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle – Box of Monsters Expansion, Axis & Allies: Anniversary Edition, Wizards Wanted, Braintopia, NMBR9, Ticket to Ride: Germany, Planetarium, Barbarians: The Invasion, Space Race, The Captain is Dead, and Heaven & Ale.

Review Roundup

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.

Review Roundup

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.

Review Roundup

Hey there, everyone. I hope you’re all having a great Saturday. I just got back from the grocery store (I’m typing this up a decent amount earlier than it is set to go live) so I can get ready to have some company over for a low-key Halloween party. I’m making cookies, chocolate-coated peanut butter balls, and gumbo. Should be a good time. I’m sure a lot of you have somewhat similar plans.

As for the moment, though, before I dive into a bit of last-minute cleaning and then work on cooking, let’s get you those gaming reviews I know you all so desperately desire.

This week we have: Bankers and Robbers, Dungeon Saga, Harry Potter Deck-Building Game, Conquest Games’ Medieval Archers, Mysterium, Aeon’s End, Love Letter: Premium Edition, Mortem Et Gloriam, The Networks, Eclipse: Shadow of the Rift, Tumult Royale, Necronomicards, Cthulhu Crusades, and Loony Quest.

Harry Potter Deck Building Game Now Available

I was rather used to getting a new Harry Potter movie just about every Christmas. I actually associate the main theme with the holidays. To me, it’s basically a Christmas carol. So it feels a bit like “Christmas in October” with the release of the Harry Potter Deck Building Game from USAopoly.

USAOpoly Announces Harry Potter Deck-Building Game

He Who Must Not Be Named (you know, No-nose) is gathering his dark forces to attack Hogwarts. Who might be able to take on such a dastardly foe? Certainly not the fully-grown, experienced wizards at the school. It’s up to a plucky gang of students to get things done. Only Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Neville can stem the tide of evil and shore up Hogwarts’ defenses. That’s the story in the new Harry Potter Deck-building Game just announced by USAOpoloy.
