Review Roundup

It's not just Saturday... It's long-weekend Saturday. Short of full-on "Vacation Saturday," this is the best kind of Saturday. Just time to do aaaaall the things. What, exactly?... I've not relaly figured that out yet. But I'm sure it'll end up being something... or it'll be nothing, and that's just fine, too. But, before I get to maybe doing something or nothing, I need to get you your reviews I know you so desperately desire.

Today we have: Machina Arcana 2nd Edition, Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig, Carthago, Dungeon Draft, Ticket to Ride: First Journey, Agra, Ruthless, Blitz Bowl, Lost Cities: Rivals, Root, Clank! The Mummy's Curse, Thieves Den, and The Edge: Downfall.

Stonemaier Games Announces Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig Game

Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig is an interesting game in concept because it's competitive-cooperative. Players act as master builders, trying to create a grand castle. You will work with the players on either side of you to do so, creating a grand masterpiece as you play tiles, each representing a room of a castle. In the end, you will have built two castles. Your score is the lower score of the two castles, with the winner being the one with the highest score, overall.

Well, Stonemaier Games is looking to change that with My Little Scythe. It's a new board game where players use their little animal figures to travel around and go on adventures in Pomme. Pre-orders are going on now.

Stonemaier Games Announces Rise of Fenris Expansion For Scythe

They say that all good things must come to an end. Well, at least it's good to know when you can prepare for that ending.

It's called Rise of Fenris, and it will conclude the epic tale of a World War that turned out much differently from the one that's taught in our history classes.

Stonemaier Games Announces Between Two Cities: Capitals Expansion

Building a city isn't easy. I mean, look at Atlanta. They had that thing burned basically to the ground and could start over and they certainly didn't do it right. But anyway, you want your city to be better than Atlanta. And that's just what you'll be doing in Between Two Cities: Capitals. This expansion adds in new elements like landscapes, districts, and civic buildings to the game. It will be available in July.

Stonemaier Games Taking Pre-Orders For Tuscany Essentials Edition

While I am a teetotaler, I can certainly appreciate how others might enjoy a fine glass of really good wine. Granted, the fact that I don't drink certainly doesn't keep me enjoying games like Viticulture. I just won't be doing it while also sipping on some wine (as I've seen many people do). Well, for those of you that enjoy the game, you can now get in a pre-order for the Tuscany Essentials edition of the Tuscany expansion for the game.
