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.

Board Game Quest has a review article up where they look at Ancient Terrible Things. Is the game a terrible thing, itself, or not? Read on to find out.
