Kickstarter: 7 Fortunes – Greek Mythology Edition

I’ve always had a huge interest in Greek mythology. Call it narcissistic (which is, of course, appropriate in relation to the subject matter too) but with my name being the same as that of a famous Greek hero (and who I was named after), seeing ‘Jason’ pop up throughout the stories really caught my attention when I was very young. […]

Review: Pandemic

Depending on your point of view, reviewing Pandemic at this point in time is either a really great idea or the worst idea ever. Given that excellent game Plague Inc – in which you control a disease with the ultimate goal of eradicating humankind – has recently been seeing record player numbers, I’m inclined to think it’s not such a […]

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: Star Wars: Empire vs Rebellion

I’m a few days late with this one, considering that Star Wars Day was on Monday – but I thought it was well worth covering anyway. A small card game with a surprising amount of theme and playability, Star Wars: Empire vs Rebellion is a relatively straightforward battle between two players for control of events that have occurred throughout the […]

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: 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 […]

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, […]
