Review Roundup

It’s Saturday. And not just any type of Saturday, but Saturday of a 3-day weekend. I can’t think of a much better sort of Saturday… Well, maybe Saturday of Gen Con. But that’s a pretty damn busy Saturday. But for “above average” Saturdays, I’d say that 3-day weekend Saturday is a pretty good Saturday. Do you think I’ve typed the word “Saturday” enough by now? Well, I don’t know what you’ve got going on today, but I’m going to be delivering games to a friend, and then possibly having minis delivered to me. Because it’s an awesome Saturday. I’m also here to show off some reviews for you.

This week we have: Nemesis, Everdell, Fox in the Forest, Hamsterrolle, Codenames: Disney, Escape Room in a Box: The Werewolf Project, 878: Vikings, Kepler-3042, Okey Dokey, Santorini, Finished!, Ex Libris, and Hunger: The Show.

Review Roundup

It’s feeling a lot like Saturday 2: Sat Harder (editor’s note: rework that title before publishing) here. Yesterday I spent much of the day at home, hanging out and working on my friend’s Guild Ball minis. He moved recently and a bunch of his stuff got jumbled and busted up. Plus, there were some new kits he’d gotten in that he wasn’t sure when he would be able to assemble them. Putting figures together is arguably my favorite part of the whole hobby, so I’ve offered to fix his busted minis, assemble his new ones, and even move some of his other figures over to sculpted bases he’d gotten. There’s ~35 minis that are getting some kind of work on them, from assembly, to those bases, to fixes, to green-stuffing the slots. It’s been a fun project. Certainly kept me busy. Plus, next time I see them on the other side of the pitch, I don’t have to see a bunch of half-assembled and busted figures. 😛
But I’m currently taking a break (my hand’s cramping from using a pin vice all morning) to bring you those reviews I know you all so desperately desire.

This week we have: Storm Hollow, The Mysterious Forest, Pandemic Legacy Season 2, Vengeance, Gloom of Kilforth, Spoils of War, Santorini, Kerala, Mini Rails, Armageddon, By Order of the Queen, NMBR 9, Coded: Card-Time Strategy, Legend of the Five Rings, Woo-Hoo!, AquaSphere, and Cities of Splendor.
