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

Kickstarter image for Kittin and Tinderblox

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 […]

What Came First Review – Alton Towers or Betty White?

What Came First Review Featured Image

Like most people, I’ve amassed a brain full of pointless trivia. Obscure film facts, actor names and birth years but never useful stuff. Never mathematical equations or scientific principles. Unfortunately, I’m salty that my brain has taken to hoarding trivia but I will try to keep this review of What Came First, objective. What Is […]

Lost Galaxy Review – Frantic Evacuations

Lost Galaxy Cover

Who here still plays Risk? It’s a fun game, until it’s not. I’ve got a really really old copy that I think is from the seventies and it’s impossible to take North America if they’re turtling. Last year I got the chance to review a game called Leaders which was Risk but with an app. […]

Exploring Emotions Through Solo RPGS

A misty mountainous landscape

I appreciate that the title sounds a bit essayish but today we’re talking about ancient artefacts and monster sex so, y’know, its not all that dry. Quick note: all the images in this article lead to their respective game’s itch.io page. Some are free so check them out. What are Solo RPGs? For anyone unfamiliar […]

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: […]

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 […]
