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 […]

Social Media 4

My First Twitterversary

Today is a special occasion, being exactly a year since I set up and used my Twitter account for the very first time. I was always very hesitant to use social media – especially with all of the seemingly endless toxicity I’d heard about in the gaming community – but I’m pleased to say that my experience has, for the […]

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 […]

Weekly Round Up

I seemed to cover an awful lot of ground this week; though it was at my usual pace of an article a day, it certainly felt as if I covered more than usual. So I wouldn’t blame you if you missed anything; it seems to me that it’s a good idea take a look at what I wrote about over […]

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 […]

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 […]
