Mage Wars


Review Roundup

Hello, Saturday. How are you? I'm alright. Still a little sick. Bit of a lingering cough, but I'm working through it. So no gaming will be had by me today (I'm actually just contemplating a nap). But I hope that your Saturday is a bit more exciting than what I've got going on.
At the very least, though, before I take another shot of medicine and go lay down, I gotta make sure you get those reviews you so desperately desire.

This week we have: Museum Heist, Race for the Galaxy iOS Expansions, Battle for Rokugan, Yogi, The Pursuit of Happiness: Community Expansion, Bubblee Pop, XCOM: Evolution Expansion, Dicetopia, Hot Shots, NewSpeak, Dragonfire, Codenames: Duet, Outpost Siberia, and Mage Wars Academy Warlord and Forcemaster Expansions.

Review Roundup

Well, it seemingly took an eternity, but it is now Saturday.
And, as I expected, from the time I clocked out until even now seems to have gone by very quickly. So, by the time I finish this, I guess it'll be time for Monday's Terrain corner...

But that's as may be.

Today we have: Cauldron Master, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shadows Of The Past Board Game Review, April O'Neil Hero Pack For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shadows of the Past, Dice City, Picassimo, The Who Were 8, Cosmic Run: Rapid Fire, Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age, Dragoon, Dubai: Rebuild the Ruins, Mage Wars: Paladin vs. Siren, Firefly: Crime and Punishment, and Frostgrave Expansions.

Review Roundup

First part of the weekend is already a success. The pizza last night was pretty much everything I could've hoped for. It's nice when a week-long cooking project turns out good (ok, the pizza doesn't really take a week to make, but parts I was able to do ahead of time like render the bacon and such was done along the way, instead of doing it all last night). Today it's all about the Board Game Day at the Milton Library. If you're in the Atlanta area, stop on by.

But that's for later (well, later to me now as I'm typing this, not later from the time you read this, since I'm typing this at 6am and will be gaming at 2pm when it posts).

Right now we've got reviews of: London, Colosseum, Ophidian 2360, Ore-Some, Critter Combat, Gloomhaven, Runebound: The Gilded Blade Expansion, Mage Wars: Arena Paladin vs Siren Expansion, Conquest of Speros, Castles of Burgundy, Flamme Rouge, and Ponzi Scheme.

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

Ah, Saturday. What cannot be accomplished on a day like today?
*hears someone shout out "You can't build Rome in a day!"* ... Ok, besides that. *hears people shout out hundreds of other things* Ok, fine! But besides the roads, education, the aqueduct, and stability, what have the Romans ever given us?
... I feel I've gotten off-track. Here's today's Review Roundup.

This time around we have: V-Wars, Imhotep, Celestia, Escape From the Aliens in Outer Space, Ghost Stories, Adventure Time Card Wars: Fionna vs Cake, Tanks – Panther vs Sherman Starter Set, T.I.M.E. Stories (spoiler-free and spoiler reviews), Light of Dragons, Roots of Mali, and Mage Wars Arena Battlegrounds Domination.

Podcast Roundup

Tuesday. Not exactly the most popular of days. But still, it's not a Monday, so it's got that going for it. Another thing it has going for it is our weekly Podcast Roundup.

It's another lean week, as we've got one podcast and one vidcast for you. Seems most shows are on a bi-weekly schedule these days, and most happen to match up to be on the same week.

Oh well, this time we've got: Through Gamer Goggles Words With Scott from Arcane Wonders at Origins 2015 and Adeptus Infernus Ep24.

In this installment we have reviews/previews of: Pathfinder Battles: Gargantuan Shemhazian Demon, Princes of the Apocalypse, Mage Wars Companion App, Transylvania: Curses and Traitors, Pew Pew, Patchwork, Lanterns, and Sultan's Library.

From the website:

In this Box Breaking Matt takes a look at the new warlock and warlord for Mage Wars. He discusses the strategy a little as well as his favorites from the expansion. I do believe my favorite card is Conquer it offers so much strategy to an already strategic game.

Play Unplugged at Gen Con Indy 2013 – Interview with Mage Wars

Play Unplugged was at GenCon Indy (though how I managed to not run into them is beyond me. Enrico's apparently a slippery one) and talked with the guys from Mage Wars while there.



From the interview:

It’s Gen Con Indy time! Woot! We start our interviews off with the bang of a conjured bolt of lightening! Enrico visits the Arcane Wonders booth to interview Mage Wars creator Bryan Pope. Bryan shares tons of information on the upcoming Druid Vs. Necromancer expansion (coming in October), as well as hints of more detailed multi-player rules.
