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 […]

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: […]

Spire – Review

Reviewing games can be difficult at times. Enjoyment is subjective and while we try our best to be objective, our opinions and tastes ultimately decide how we get on with a game. Which leads me to the strange journey of reviewing Spire. Ever since first coming across Spire at the UK Games Expo last year, […]

Save Koch – Review

“No matter what I do, they find another turncoat. Another goddamn traitor.” One of the reasons I started this site was to help bring attention to those indie gems that fall through the cracks. Save Koch is one of those games that fell through the cracks and I need to remedy that. Save Koch is […]

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.

But it is important to be safe while exploring these emotions as it possible to go diving into them and struggle to resurface. Especially with solo play. To that end, The Artefact thankfully comes with a […]

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 […]

Verdant Skies: PC Review

As you may have been able to tell about me from my past review of My Time at Portia, I am an absolute sucker for farming/resource gathering RPGs. Immediately upon seeing Verdant Skies, my heart fluttered at the premise: space colonists land on a whole new world and begin to make it habitable – and […]

Escape the Dark Castle – Review

Indie boardgame Gothic horror survival fantasy story narrative chapters new

Choose-Your-Own-Adventures seem to be making a comeback. Or maybe I’m just noticing them more as I get back into the interactive fiction scene. It’s the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon of game journalism. Once you learn about a unique new concept, its suddenly everywhere. With that said, this week I’ve been having a blast with Weirding Woods (review […]
