TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

Welcome, friends, to Saturday. Another week is over and it's time to relax with some gaming. When this posts, I'll be in the middle of a D&D session. The current DM and I are gonna tag out once more and I'm gonna take back over the campaign. Of course, that leaves my character I was playing.

Board Game Quest posts Space Cadets Dice Duel: Die Fighter Expansion Review

Board Game Quest has a new review up. This time it's for Stronghold Games' expansion for Dice Duel, Die Fighter.

From the post:

When it comes to real time board games, I’m hard pressed to find one I like better than Space Cadets: Dice Duel. I was introduced to this gem back in 2013 and instantly fell in love with it. It was frantic, exciting and a stupid amount of fun. My only knock against the game was that it’s player count was from 4-8 players only. I longed for a way to play Dice Duel with only two players.

Well it appears that game designers Geoff and Sydney Engelstein heard my pleas and has gifted upon us an expansion. The Space Cadets Dice Duels: Die Fighter Expansion seeks to expand and improve upon the already stellar Dice Duels game. Did he succeed, or does this expansion need to be regulated to the Highlander 2 category of “please forget me?” Lets find out!

From the post:

When I heard Stronghold Games was coming out with a new real time game at Gen Con 2013, my interest was immediately piqued. My expectations were somewhat tempted because this was the second game in their “Space Cadets” Universe and the first game had, unfortunately, fallen somewhat flat for me. Regardless, I still wanted to check it out. At the risk of a spoiler, I can say that I’m really happy I did. Space Cadets: Dice Duel stands on its own as a unique board game that’s a whole mess of fun. What players get is a frantic, team based board game that promises to keep you on the edge of your seat. Do they deliver? Read On!

Space Cadets: Dice Duel is a real time, sci-fi fighting game for 4-8 players that plays in about 20-30 minutes. Space Cadets: Dice Duel plays best with 6 or 8 players.
