Review Roundup

I know. I know. This was supposed to go up yesterday.
Well, WordPress has been flaky lately and it missed its posting window. Hence why it's going up now with a reworded opening talking about it not being posted on Saturday instead of saying, "I'm going to the LGS and gonna pick me up a Minx for Guild Ball!"

But anyway, without any further delay, today we have: Great Western Trail, Click Click Boom, Radiant, Potion Explosion: The Fifth Element expansion, Rone: Races of New Earth, Legendary Showdown, Pocket Madness, Quadropolis, Rocky Road a la Mode, Race for the Galaxy iOS, Warhammer 40k: 8th Edition, Warhammer 40k: Dark Imperium, Port Royal, Flying Kiwis, and Magic Maze.

Review Roundup

Hello, Saturday!
It... was quite a week, I have to say. Very busy. With all the goings-on for GAMA, I almost forgot that PAX East was going on. Hope everyone is having a good time out there. I'm, obviously, not there. I will be at Adepticon in a couple weeks, though. That'll be fun. Love going back to Chicago (my homeland). But that's a bit away. In the meantime, let's get you the reviews you so desperately desire.

Today we have: Inis, Dungeons of Infinity, War of the Ring: Anniversary Edition, Warhammer Quest: Shadows Over Hammerhal, Fidelitas, JrassAttack, Wok on Fire, Avalance at Yeti Mountain, Citadels, Council of Blackthorn, Escape from Colditz, Stratos, Adrenaline, Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition, Flag Dash, Snowblind: Race for the Pole, The Money Pit of Oak Island, and Dice Stars.

Saturday Review Roundup

I hope you're enjoying your Saturday. I'm working on articles for the site. There's 3 review articles in the works as you read this. Not 100% certain on order they'll be posted yet (that sort of stuff changes all the time, if you can believe it), or exact dates, but expect them soon. But while those you're going to have to wait a little bit longer, the wait is over for a bunch of other reviews, as it's time for our Review Roundup.

This time around we have: Kromlech General Otto and Orc Freak, Boss Monster 2, Tash-Kalar Nethervoid Expansion, Tumult Royale, Project Dreamscape, Dwarves Inc, The Best Treehouse Ever, Firefly: Kalidasa Expansion, CV, Star Wars: Rebellion, and Patchwork.

Green Couch Games Launches Avalanche At Yeti Mountain Kickstarter

Though I did plenty of sledding through the winters when I lived in Chicago, I've never been skiing (on snow or water, for that matter). So I'm not so sure I'd do so well with a pair of rocket skis, at least in real life. The only chance I might have is playing Avalanche at Yeti Mountain, the new card game from Green Couch Games that's up on Kickstarter.

Club Fantasci Interviews Jason Kotarski About Fidelitas

Club Fantasci's David Lowry has a chat with Jason Kotarski about his Fidelitas game that's currently up on Kickstarter.

From the post:

In Fidelitas, players take on the role of faithful citizens in a medieval city exerting influence in order to gain the credibility needed to lead the charge against the corrupt crown. Players play character cards to various locations that make up the city in order to meet conditions of hidden objectives. Each type of character card is associated with a unique action that manipulates cards in the game; use the Butcher to bully other characters to new locations, use the Student to gain more cards, use the Soldier to keep the peasants from loitering too long. In this game where keen maneuvering is key, attentiveness to the opposition may uncover hidden motives that seek to foil your bid for power. The first player to gain a certain number points depending on the number of players is determined worthy to lead the revolt, and also wins the game.
