Arcane Blaster Casters Preview – Silly Spell Slinging

Arcane Blaster Casters preview cover art

This Arcane Blaster Casters preview is based on a pre-production/review copy of the game so elements may be subject to change by release. Who doesn’t love wizards? The idea of being able to conjure whatever you want, curse people who don’t invite you to things, and cause wanton destruction is just so appealing. And as […]

Costa Ruana Review – Problematic Plundering.

Box art of Costa Ruana

It’s always interesting to see the highs and lows of a designer and while we loved R&R’s Outback, their tribal bluffing game Costa Ruana horribly disappoints. Costa Ruana’s premise is that a bunch of pirates have buried treasure on some small islands nearby. Your village shaman wants you to go steal it. The only problem […]

Museum Boardgame Review – Exhibiting Exotic Errata!

“Come and take a gander at all the wonderful thing’s we’ve managed to blag for Queen and country!” says the museum curator. Or, at least that’s what I was saying to the unseen yet assuredly massive crowds visiting my museum. Not my real museum obviously. My boardgame Museum. Museum is all about turn-of-the-century museumry (verb: […]

The Forgotten City – Review

You awake in a fantasy world with none of your memories. You enlist the help of magical elves to help you restore your memories through the construction of special temples all while fighting off the nightmares that seek to undo you. The main goal in The Forgotten City is to get the most points through […]

Beat That – Review

Last year we got a game at the UK Games Expo called Gutterhead. A delightfully rude Pictionary style game with little poops as player tokens. As usual, after writing a review we tried to contact the developers to let them know the review was up. However, all the box said in way of contact details […]

Yogi – Review

Disclaimer: I offered to review Bez’s games Yogi and Faybell and was then later matched with Bez as part of the tabletop game mentor program. One of the best games I’ve ever played is Twister. An absolute classic of a party game that, as you get older, stiffer, and weird about having people sprawled all […]

Blockbuster – Review

Movie trivia can be a hit or miss with certain groups. Heck even as someone who loves film I haven’t seen most ‘classics’. I know of them but even for my favourite films I couldn’t possibly tell you who directed or wrote them. So usually we avoid movie trivia as it inevitably boils down to […]

Outback – Review

We’ve got a bit of a theme this week as we dive into another animal centric boardgame. Blame our resident zoologist. So, after braving life and limb to film our documentaries on the Zambezi river, we’re taking it down a notch and heading to Australia to manage animal reserves in Outback!  If you’ve been reading […]

Don’t Get Got Review – Promoting Paranoia!

Nothing inspires paranoia among friends like a secret missions game and Big Potato have taken it one step further. By cleverly removing the board, Don’t Get Got becomes a secret missions game that can go on for days. Each player draws 6 mission cards that slide into the waterproof wallet. From the moment of drawing […]

The Storymaster’s Tales: Weirding Woods – Preview

Like I said in my Dark Castle review, choose-your-own-adventure games seem to be cropping up everywhere this year and I couldn’t be happier. While Escape the Dark Castle focused on dark Gothic dungeoneering to evoke a feeling similar to the Dracula, Frankenstein, and a little bit of Lovecraft and Fighting Fantasy, Weirding Woods opts instead […]
