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.

There’s been a welcome resurgence of interest in Judge Dredd on the tabletop in recent years. Not only have we seen the excellent – if ridiculously challenging – The Cursed Earth, but there’s also been a miniatures game, an RPG and other board games too, perhaps most notably the critically acclaimed retheming of Wildlands, Judge Dredd: Helter Skelter – which […]

For once in a Shadowrun game, the complexity and buckets-of-dice elements are dialled down or tossed out entirely, leaving a more focused, fast-paced experience that goes all in on presenting just one […]

Review: Concept Destruction

One of the best early PlayStation games that I played was Destruction Derby – a glorious demolition derby game which – for its time – had some very impressive damage modelling on the cars, making it incredibly satisfying to smash up the many opponents in the arena while trying to keep yours as blemish free as possible (spoiler: this was […]

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, […]
