Review Roundup

Hey everyone,
Sorry about the posts the other day. As I’d mentioned previously, I wasn’t at the office the last couple days. And, well, you know the old saying, “if it isn’t one thing, it’s another”? That kinda sums up my last 2 days. Not anything godawful, but just… “well… ok, then.”
So, you kinda got a quick bit of stories this morning, and with the Review Roundup, hopefully we’ll be back on track here.

Anyway, today we have: Ganz Schon Clever, Getaway Driver, Onitama: Sensei’s Path Expansion, Impulse, Alien Artifacts, and Tadmor.

USAopoly Previews Samurai Jack: Back to the Past Board Game

Samurai Jack is one of those cartoons I’ve meant to go back and watch (since I didn’t really watch it when it was originally out), but just haven’t gotten around to. I always did like the art style, and the story seemed pretty cool. And with a new game coming out for it, the impetus to watch it has grown. Check out this preview of Samurai Jack: Back to the Past, coming from USAopoly.

USAopoly Announces Privacy Party Game

We’ve all got questions that we’d like to ask, but “polite society” tells us that we shouldn’t. Or maybe we’re just too shy to ask. Well, in Privacy, a new party game coming from USAopoly, polite society can take a hike, and the anonymous nature of the responses means you don’t have to be shy about answers. What sort of things do you want to know about?

Thanos Rising: Avengers Infinity War Now Available

Thanos is collecting together the Infinity Stones in an attempt to gain the power of a god. Of course, the heroes want to keep that from happening. That’s what you’ll be doing in Thanos Rising: Avengers Infinity War from USAopoly. Players must work together against the great purple one. Will they manage to keep him from his ultimate goal? That’s for you to find out.

USAopoly Previews Thanos Rising – Avengers: Infinity War

The Infinity Stones are items of extreme power. When the six are brought together, the power given to the one that controls them is god-like. So, it’s best to not let that happen. And that’s just what you’ll be trying to do in Thanos Rising – Avengers: Infinity War, a new cooperative game coming from USAopoly. Players will take on the role of heroes as they try and stop Thanos from completing the Infinity Gauntlet.

USAopoly Announces Deadpool vs The World Party Game

For a while now, Deadpool has been a more off-kilter and adult-oriented character in comics. When his movie came out, it showed that people will go and see an R-rated superhero film. Now, he’s bringing his adult nature to your tabletops. USAopoly has announced Deadpool vs The World, a new adult-oriented party card game.

USAopoly Announces Disney’s A Wrinkle In Time Board Game

I have to admit, I’ve read very few fiction books. They’re not really my thing. However, one I remember reading and enjoying was A Wrinkle in Time (actually, back in grade school, for a project, I even created a board game about it. So there’s your gaming tie-in). The book will soon be a movie. And that movie will soon be a board game (though no, it’s not the one I created almost 30 years ago) from USAopoly called A Wrinkle in Time: A Daring Adventure Game.

And each round will bring new event surprises to keep you on your toes.

The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 Coming from USAopoly and Mondo

Life in the antarctic is tough enough as it is. The cold, the wind, the possibility of being lost in a white-out. Throw in an alien looking to assimilate all of humanity and things get just that much worse. Double that when the alien can perfectly mimic anyone it touches. Who can you trust? Who should you burn? That’s what you’ll have to figure out in The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31, a new game coming from USAopoly and Mondo.

Introducing USAopoly’s Retailer Support Program

Most of us have an LGS. Hopefully, it’s a good one. The game stores that dot this planet are what keep the gaming community going. I know I wouldn’t’ve probably continued with gaming if I’d not had some absolutely awesome shops that I gladly called my second home. Retailers and companies want to have a good relationship so that everyone benefits. So that brings us to USAopoly coming out with a new Retailer Support Program.

USAopoly Announces Supernatural: Save Your Souls Card Game

Who’s gonna save my soul now?
Whoooooooo’s gonna save my soul now?

USAopoly Announces Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – Gear Up and Rock Out! Card Game

You know, I really should get around to seeing Guardians of the Galaxy 2… And for that matter, I should get around to seeing Guardians of the Galaxy 1. Ok, so I’m not exactly up-to-date on my movies. Though you don’t have to have seen the movie to enjoy a new game that’s coming out from USAopoly based on the mismatched group. It’s called Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Gear Up and Rock Out!

Review Roundup

Well, it’s almost like the week is getting back on schedule, even though it’s Saturday. I woke up. I got groceries. I’m now typing up the Review Roundup in my living room while listening to music and contemplating the rest of my day. Sort of nice to get things back to how they should be. What can I say? I’m a creature of habit. Anyway, as it’s Saturday, it’s time to get you those review articles I know you all so desperately desire. So let’s get to it.

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.

USAopoly Announces Super Mario Level Up! Board Game

Just seeing the words “Super Mario,” the theme music started playing in my head. I remember getting a Nintendo for Christmas and instantly getting started playing Super Mario Brothers.
… I was terrible at that game. 😛
But maybe I won’t be so bad at Super Mario Level Up!, a new board game coming soon from USAopoloy.

Review Roundup

It’s Saturday, the day that’s full of possibilities (Ok, so every day is full of possibilities, but it just feels moreso on Saturday to me). With any luck, your day is full of gaming.

X-Men Munchkin Now Available

Back when I read comics, I was an X-fan. I mostly read X-Factor, but since I also read Wolverine, so that means I read some X-Men as well. And, of course, I watched the cartoon as well. As such, I’ve always been more a Marvel fan than a DC fan. So, even though I don’t read comics anymore, I still get excited when I see new Marvel products come out. In this case, it’s the X-Men edition of Munchkin.

USAopoly Announces Monster Box of Monsters Expansion for Harry Potter Deck-Building Game

Quite a headline there. But then, items in the Harry Potter tend to have names like that.
Well, you’re a wizard in training and you’re at what is an exceedingly dangerous school to be learning in. Now, there’s even more stuff out to get you with the Monster Box of Monsters expansion for the Harry Potter Deck-Building Game, just announced by USAopoly.

USAopoly To Design Licensed Versions of Codenames

Many of you out there have played Codenames from CZE. I… actually haven’t. But it’s one I’ve been meaning to give a shot. Well, there will certainly be the opportunity to do so in the future, as USAopoly and CZE are teaming up to bring you licensed versions of the game.

Review Roundup

Well, one down and 51 to go. We’re a week into 2017 and it’s been a bit of an odd one, at least for me. No single day was “an average day,” really. Whether I was working from home or had to go to the repair shop, or just had the day off, I’m somewhat looking forward to just a “usual routine” next week.
Anyway, that’s as may be. Right now, it’s time to get you the reviews you so desperately desire.

Today we have: Lift It, Figopedia, Codenames Pictures, Dungeon Roll, A Fake Artist Goes to New York, High Treason!, Roll Player, Fief: France 1429, Age of War, Betrayal at House on the Hill: Widow’s Walk Expansion, and Colt Express iOS.

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.

USAopoly Ghoulish Games Giveaway Happening Now

Halloween is less than a week away. I know a lot of people that will be celebrating this weekend. Heck, I’ll be celebrating this weekend, and I’m not even one for celebrating holidays all that much. You know who else is celebrating? The folks over at USAopoly. They’re running their Ghoulish Games Giveaway now.

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.

Review Roundup

Weeeeeeeekeeeeeeeend!
Wooooooooo!
Always a fan of the weekend, as you all know. Today I’m just kind of hanging out before going to a friend’s birthday party later. Should be a good time had by all. But at the moment, I’m bringing you those review articles that I know you so desperately desire.

USAopoloy Posts A Look Inside the Marvel Munchkin 2 Set

Super hero comics are filled with all sorts of mystical and magical heroes and items. Sure, guys like Iron Man, Captain America, and even the Incredible Hulk were all created via science, but you’ve got the Scarlet Witch and Dr. Strange whose powers all come from the ethereal. The Munchkin Marvel 2: Mystic Mayhem (Mmmmm!) set is filled with all things magical. But there’s more than just that, and we get a look at it here.

Review Roundup

Hey there, everyone. Can you feel it? That’s the feeling of the weekend. Isn’t it just grand? My Facebook feed’s full of pictures of people at all sorts of conventions and events. Me? I’m taking a “weekend off,” such as it were. I’m happy to live vicariously through those photos, instead choosing to just chill at the bear cave here, sip on some Dew, and do some gaming of the electronic variety (hey, I’m allowed!).

I’m also getting your Review Roundup ready. Obviously, when you read this, it will be done. But at the exact moment I’m typing this, it’s still a work in progress.
… wait… ok, yeah, now it’s done.

Anyway, today we have articles on: Rockopolis, Star Trek Panic, Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu, Stick to Colours, Carrotia, Karuba, Prospectus, Tiki Island, Winner’s Circle, Flick ‘Em Up, and Grifters.

USAopoly Releases Rollers Dice Game

What is it about rolling dice? Just earlier, when thinking about what I wanted to type for a different story, I grabbed some D20 that I keep here at my desk (I’ve also got various D6s) and was just rolling them. It was for no reason at all, just something to do while I thought about what I wanted to type. Most of us love rolling dice. That’s why there’s so many games that involve them. And new games come out all the time that use dice. Take, for example, Rollers, a new dice game from USAopoly.

Review Roundup

Hey there, everyone. I hope you’re enjoying your Saturday. Mine’s not the greatest, as I’m driving back from visiting my parents. Not that visiting my parents is bad. But the 8.5 hour drive back home is. Buh. No fun at all. But at least once I’m back home I’ll be able to get back into the groove of some gaming.

In the meantime, let’s get you some gaming reviews.

Today we have: VS 2PCG A-Force Expansion, Conflict of Heroes Guadalcanal, Shattered Void, Wake Up Cthulhu, Oh My Gods, Scape, Legendary Dice Throwers, Blood & Fortune, Histrio, Mistborn: House War, Celestia, and Morocco.

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.
