Game Pass 2

Game Pass Adventures

It’s that time again – I haven’t done this for a while, but every now and then I do a little round up of the games I’ve been checking out as part of my Game Pass subscription. There’s an awful lot of games on offer, with a surprising number of indie titles that could go under the radar – but, […]

Weekly Round Up

Has another week passed? It sure has! As we hurtle uncontrollably towards Christmas and the end of another year – as well as, terrifyingly, the end of another decade – let’s take a look at what I wrote during the first week of December. Revisiting Assassin’s Creed I struggled through about a third of Assassin’s Creed around nine years ago, […]

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: 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 […]

Zombie Dice

Steve Jackson Games, price varies but £12.50/$9.29 at time of writing – UK: buy here or US: here You’re a zombie. You need brains. You need to chase humans. You definitely don’t need to get shot. 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 – Board Game

There’s an increasing number of games that aren’t afraid to use technology in an interesting and pivotal way. 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 […]

An Introduction to Euro Games

I was in my early 20s when I rediscovered the joy of board games. One of the best side effects of that was that it also reignited my passion for writing. Without having had my interest in board games back, it’s unlikely that I would be here, writing this right now. At first, it was a bit bewildering. I made […]
