Board Game Review: The Quacks of Quedlinburg

It’s been a while since I’ve sunk my teeth into a proper Euro-style board game, but The Quacks of Quedlinburg most definitely fits into that category.

Scooby-Doo! First Frights – Wii

Though I often cover Wii games that can pretty much be bought for pennies, occasionally I’ll venture into a slightly higher price range. The exception I made this time is for Scooby Doo: First Frights – having always been a fan, I thought I’d give this a try, especially as the blurb and cover art looked so appealing. Though I […]
