Partners Review – Divorce Is Always On The Cards

Partners Boardgame Review Cover Image

Here I sit with humble pie, a glad but grumpy reviewer. When I was given Partners to review at last years UK Games Expo, I was reluctant to accept. I wrote it off as another attempt at recreating Frustration or Ludo. The main difference is that it’s team based and uses cards instead of dice. […]

Kittin and Tinderblox Kickstarter Previews – Tiny Tins

Just recently I heard about the concept of mint-tin games. Games that, in essence, are designed to fit within a mint-tin. Which, as curator of the microgame feature for Tabletop Gaming, is entirely up my alley. One page RPGs, microgames, business card/post card/letter games, and now mint-tin games are some of my favourites to play […]

Table Top 5 of 2019

It’s the end of the year (almost) and that means its time for a Table Top 5 list! Is it self indulgent? Yes! Is it a good way to find out about games we haven’t covered? Of course! There have been some good and some bad games release this year and in the interests of […]

Arcane Blaster Casters Preview – Silly Spell Slinging

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 […]
