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, […]

Board Game Review: Terrible Monster

I’ve spent the last few days reviewing small, clever and unique board games – and I’m continuing the theme today. It’s almost Christmas, after all – and surely the festive period is the ideal time to be checking out board games! As tiny games go, Terrible Monster is one of the smallest there is. It’s comprised of just sixteen cards […]

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, […]

Board Game Review: Dungeon Mayhem

I’ve talked quite a bit on here about my love for tabletop roleplaying, and old school Dungeons & Dragons in particular. Though not an RPG itself, Dungeon Mayhem is a card game ostensibly set in the D&D universe, albeit with a much more cartoony look than players may be used to – along with very simple gameplay. Contained in the […]

Board Game Review: Adventure Games: The Dungeon

Having already succumbed to the wonderfully inventive – and sometimes maddeningly brainbending – charms of Exit, the escape room style series of games by Kosmos, I was keen to check out their newest series, Adventure Games. Deliberately evoking the feel of old school PC point and click adventures, the Adventure Games have a great advantage over the Exit series, in […]
