Review Roundup

Hey there everyone,
We've made it to Saturday, so that once again means it's time for a Review Roundup. A bit lighter this week than usual. I'm sure that's due to Gen Con last weekend. I expect, though, that the next couple weeks will be pretty full of new reviews. I know several reviewers were getting copies of the new CMON games, at least.

Also: We're looking into what's up with the TGN Blogs page. We'll let you know when we find out anything.

Anyway, as for today, we've got: Battle of the Bands, Get Adler, Super Hack Override, Beneath Nexus, Legends of Andor New Heroes Expansion, Warmachine Cephalyx Mind Slaver & Drudges, Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition, Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu, Tyrants of the Underdark, Animals On Board, Farmageddon: Farm Fresh Edition, and Stellar Conflict.

Board Game Quest:

Tyrants of the Underdark Review


Tyrants of the Underdark is a hybrid deck building and area control game for two to four players. It plays in about 30 minutes per player. It takes place in the Underdark, a giant underground realm set in the Forgotten Realms campaign setting of the D&D roleplaying game. Players are the leaders of rival Drow houses (think Dark Elves with a MEAN streak). The object of the game, like 91.5% of all deck building games, is to collect the most victory points (VPs) by the end of the game through board control, spy networks, assassination, and manipulation.


The Animals! They’ve Arrived! (A Review of Animals On Board)


The goal of Animals on Board is to get the most points by bringing sets of Animals onto your ship while avoiding pairs.

Wheat Wars (a preview of Farmageddon: Farm Fresh Edition)


Farmageddon is a hand management card game for two to four players. Players manage planting crops with playing farmer cards to collect money. The player with the most money in their score pile at the end of the game wins.
