Board Game Review: Exit: The Mysterious Museum

Every time I write about a game in the Exit: The Game series of escape-room-at-home type experiences, I’m setting myself a ridiculous challenge. How on earth do I talk about it without spoiling the contents or giving away what clever little puzzles lay within this particular box of fiendish challenges? If you’ve read my blog for a while, you’ll know […]

Board Game Review: Exit: The Haunted Rollercoaster

I’ve written about the Exit games before, but never about a specific game from the rather extensive range that’s currently available. There’s a reason for that; as Escape Room-esque experiences that you can only play once, they rely on players knowing as little as possible before they start the game. This makes it extremely difficult to talk about each one […]

Board Game Review: Decktective: Bloody-Red Roses

Though I’m not great at problem solving and the lateral thinking that certain puzzles require, after enjoying a number of Escape Room style board games (such as games in the Exit and Escape series, as well as the more point and click style gameplay of Adventure Games) I’ve started to enjoy working through puzzles in a group, with a variety […]

Preview: Transformers TCG – Titan Masters Attack

I’ve covered the Transformers TCG (Trading Card Game) a few times before; reviewing the base game and taking a look at some of the excellent expansions, for example – so when I was given some details on the newest wave of cards, I was incredibly excited to share the details. One of the things I’ve been consistently impressed with in […]

Board Game Review Round Up

I’ve just managed to get hold of the board game version of classic Atari arcade/console game Centipede, and it occurred to me – when discussing the game on Twitter – that it might be useful to round up some of the excellent board games I’ve already covered. The Centipede review is on the way soon, but for now – let’s […]

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. The little brother of critical and commercial darling, Dinosaur Island – a […]

Board Game Review: Little Battle

As regular readers will know – particularly those of you who read the blog over the Christmas period – I’m a big fan of board games, especially those that come in small packages with playing time to match. Little Battle is another very small game with very few components – suitable for players of all ages – that has a […]

Board Game Review: The Muddles

There’s a cute concept at the heart of The Muddles; players try to create ‘Muddles’ – funny little hybrids of two animals – in an effort to score the most points by the end of the game. The cards have amusing, simple and childlike illustrations, along with humorous names for the Muddles themselves. The problem is that there’s very little […]

Transformers TCG: Siege II (Wave 4)

Regular readers will know that I’m not only a huge Transformers fan, but also a fan of collectible card games too; having played Magic for more years than I’d care to admit (though on and off – and more casually than serious), I was very excited when I first saw the Transformers Trading Card Game in the wild. The impressively […]

Board Game Review Round Up

‘Twas the week before Christmas – and I decided to spend it highlighting small, easy to learn and (most importantly) fun tabletop games. I tried to make sure I covered an especially varied selection of games; let’s take a look at what I was able to check out this week. Flip City A compact card game with a city-building theme, […]
