Review Roundup

Hello Saturday. The Chuck Mangione from yesterday has switched over to Danger Doom, because that’s the sort of mood I’m in. Other than that… not much happening on this side of the screen. A chill Saturday on a chilly Saturday here in Atlanta (seriously, we’ve actually got winter for a couple days before it’s supposed to get back up to the 60s next week). But for the moment, let’s get you some game reviews.

Today we have: Runebound: Fall of the Dark Star, Runebound: Caught in a Web, Castle Panic: Engines of War, Pests, Gloomhaven, Mysterium Digital Edition, Insider, Hands in the Sea, Villages of Valeria, and Covert.

Review Roundup

Hey everyone. Congratulations as you’ve made it to the weekend. Saturday is here and that means it’s time to sit back and relax some. Hopefully you’ve got something gaming-related going on. I might be working (on a super-secret project that’s set to revolutionize the gaming world!!! … 😉 ), but it’s still at least gaming related. I also have a fresh 12-pack of Mt. Dew Pitch Black. So it’s a good day. But anyway, let’s get to those reviews I know you all love so much.

Today we have: Bite Nite, Papayoo, Dungeon Busters, Steampunk Rally, Castle Panic Engine of War Expansion, Colt Express (iOS), Gangs of Cammorragh, Star Wars: Destiny, New York Slice, Burano, Mysterium App, Seasons, and Tyrants of the Underdark.

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.

Mysterium: Hidden Signs Available Tomorrow

Just when you thought you’d figured out the murder at Warwick Manor, new information has come to light. Of course, seeing as you’re talking with ghosts, it’s not that the information is very direct. Signs, visions, feelings have to be interpreted. A frog in a tutu sitting on a bed. A swordfish jumping out of a bowl of tomato soup while a trio of figures watch from the desert sidelines. You know, the usual stuff when you’re a psychic communicating with the dead. Mysterium: Hidden Signs takes you back to Warwick Manor in this new expansion for Mysterium, available tomorrow.

Asmodee Releases Mysterium

At Gen Con every year there’s inevitably at least one game that everyone’s chomping at the bit to get. The one that causes lines all the way around the company’s booth for days on end, from open to close of the show floor. Usually selling out each day. One of them this past year was Mysterium from Asmodee. Well, for those that didn’t get a chance to get it back then, you can have your chance to get it now by just heading to your local game store.

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. Stories, Bang! The Dice Game, Mysterium, Fury of Dracula, Pandemic Legacy, Between Two Cities, El Grandulon for Freebooters Fate, Opel Blitz by Rubicon Models, Star Wars Armada Wave 2, DreadBall Xtreme, and Pathfinder Battles: Red Dragon Evolution Set.

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

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.

Anyway, as is custom here on TGN, we’ve collected the review articles from the week and have them here in one place for you here today.

In this batch we have previews/reviews of: Kromlechs’ Armoured Orc Assault and SMG Squads, Urban Commando and Battleground Gaming Mats, Deus Board Game, Dead Man’s Draw, The Institute of Magical Arts, Board Game Quest’s Top 10 Cooperative Games, Port Royal, Saboteur, Mysterium, Wizard’s Academy, and XCOM.
