Review Roundup

So, since I spend all my regular workdays gaming, I will often step away from it on my time off. You know, you don't want to get burned out on a thing. However, last weekend and this, I've been all-out gaming just about every chance I can! Last week was game day at the Milton, GA. library. Yesterday a friend came over for some Guild Ball. Today I'm headed to another friend's (and co-worker) house for more gaming, along with Italian beef and fresh-baked cookies.

So that's what I'm doing. How about you (besides reading this article)?

Speaking of this article, this week we have: Deadzone 2nd Edition, Manhattan Project: Chain Reaction, Mission to Mars, Tumult Royale, Expo 1906, The Cohort, MODX, The Siblings Trouble, Super Motherload, 13 Days: The Cuban Missile Crisis, Fury Of Dracula, Dead of Winter, Potion Explosion, Dastardly Dirigibles, Apollo XIII, Snow Tails, Kune v Lakia, Deathbot Derby, Game of Train, and Ice Cool.

Minion Games Launches Saga of the Northmen Kickstarter

Pillage, plunder, and burn. That's pretty much the goals of any good viking. And such is what you want to do in Saga of the Northmen, a new viking-themed board game from Minion Games that's up on Kickstarter now. The game is a bit of worker placement with some area control as you look to spread your influence across the seven major kingdoms of Europe each round in order to make off with the most plunder. But beware, because your opponent's armies might just come in and take it all from you.

Perspective, a Micro Card Game from Minion Games, up on Kickstarter

Most card games you come across have backs that are identical. That way, nobody knows what cards you have. Perspective, from Minion Games, isn't like most card games. Perspective's cards are two-sided, though you only ever get to see one side of your own cards at a time. Others, however, get to see what's on the other side. Your job is to figure out what's on the back of your cards and match up your hand to a pre-set pattern. Get it right and win. Get it wrong and you're out.

Board Game Quest posts DragonFlame Preview

Board Game Quest takes a look at Minion Games' new card game, DragonFlame, and gives you their thoughts on the subject.

From the article:

Let me start with this: dragons are awesome! And there is a new game where you get to be a dragon, I’m interested. In DragonFlame you will spend each round looting castles, capturing princesses and treasures, and burning down villages. It really is the kind of stuff dragon dreams are made of. For a game that is primarily a card game, the theme really shines.
