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!

Board Game Review: Rainbow Knights

I’ve written a few articles on tabletop games of late, with my most recent articles of that nature being a look at the point-and-click PC adventure inspired The Dungeon and the D&D-themed, fast-paced chaos of Dungeon Mayhem. Both are very different experiences indeed. Rainbow Knights is another tabletop game that feels very different to a lot of games out there, […]

Deliberately evoking the feel of old school PC point and click adventures, the Adventure Games have a great advantage over the Exit series, in […]

That’s the setup for Zombie Dice, which first came out in 2010. I still own my original set, despite it being used a lot […]

Day 50 – Am I A Blogger Now?

As you can probably guess from the title of this post, I’ve now reached fifty consecutive days of posting on the blog. Which, I think you’ll agree, is quite a milestone! Without counting today’s post, I’ve only once resorted to what I’d consider ‘filler’ – even then, it was a similar piece to this one in that I was reflecting […]

Chronicles of Crime is one such game: a police procedural board game in which the components can be used in a variety of scenarios, both included with the base game and as downloadable extras, via an app available on iOS and Android.

Indie Game Developers and Publishers: Can I help?

There’s a deluge of games released every single day on a huge variety of formats and digital storefronts. Though it’s great to have so much content to choose from, it presents an unfortunate problem – discoverability on digital storefronts is a major issue. Most gaming websites seem to concern themselves with only AAA games or relatively big budget indies; where […]
