Board Game Review: Marvel Battleworld: Mystery of the Thanostones

Far from a normal board game, Funko’s Marvel Battleworld: Mystery of the Thanostones has a strong collectable element to its appealingly cute figures, as well as blind bag/box type mystery characters – with the endorphin rush of cracking open the egg-like Thanostones cleverly woven into the game’s mechanics. All a single player needs to play is a single pack too, […]

Comic Book Review: 2000AD Regened

Regular readers of the blog – and my Twitter followers – can’t have failed to notice that I’ve been covering an awful lot of 2000AD-related material over the past few months. It started on my birthday, when I purchased a copy of the latest Judge Dredd Megazine as a treat to myself; it wasn’t long before thrill-power took over once […]

TV Review: Floor is Lava

I’ve always had a soft spot for sports shows where non-professional athletes get to test their prowess against outlandishly designed courses. It probably started way back in the 80s with TV shows such as The Krypton Factor, which admittedly had a fairly bog standard assault course for its contestants to overcome, but progressed with shows such as American Gladiators and […]

Film Review: Scoob! (2020)

At first glance, Scoob! seems like it’s going to be an origin story for our favourite scaredy-dog and his mystery solving friends. Yet it soon becomes clear that it’s a shameless, awkward and somewhat cynical attempt to set up a shared universe featuring the classic Hanna-Barbera characters from the 60s and 70s. It all starts off nicely, with a young […]

Board Game Review: Bunny Kingdom

With Magic: The Gathering and King of Tokyo alone, Richard Garfield is behind two of my all time favourite games. What I find appealing about Garfield’s games is that they’re generally simple to grasp – albeit quite often with a bit of a learning curve – but with a wealth of choices available to players on each turn. This gives […]

Board Game Review: Exit: The Stormy Flight

I honestly don’t know why I do this to myself. After covering three brilliant, incredibly clever, fourth wall breaking games in the Exit series, I’m now onto the fourth – The Stormy Flight. It’s ridiculously hard to write a review of the Exit games, because the puzzles and even the box itself can contain spoilers. They are, however, worth covering […]

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 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 […]

Review: The Jackbox Party Pack 2

I’ve long been a fan of the Jackbox Party Pack games. They’re amazing fun; each pack is a full game night for almost any number of players, with the added bonus that participants can use their phones to play the games. They’re wonderful, silly, funny and consistently witty games that everyone can enjoy, regardless of age or experience (though some […]
