Board Game Review: Duelosaur Island

My dinosaur obsession – or, perhaps more specifically, my dinosaur theme park obsession, thanks to Jurassic World: Evolution – has spilled over from the TV screen to the tabletop, with two player board game Duelosaur Island being the latest way I’ve discovered to scratch that very particular itch.

Board Game Review: Little Battle

Weekly Round Up

It’s been another busy week for me; somehow, however, I’ve still managed to maintain a pace of an article a day. For most of the week, I’ve tried to push myself into slightly unfamiliar territory and wrote several non-video game related pieces – there’s definitely been a more traditional, card-and-board-games feel to the blog this week, which wasn’t necessarily intentional!
