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. […]

ZineQuest 2 games are dropping next month and if you don’t know what that means, you’re in luck because it’s time for a history lesson! What? No… Too late! What In Sam Heck Is A Zine? A zine (/ziːn/ ZEEN; short for magazine or fanzine) is a small-circulation self-published work of original or appropriated texts […]

Just recently I heard about the concept of mint-tin games. Games that, in essence, are designed to fit within a mint-tin.

The main goal in The Forgotten City is to get the most points through […]

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. 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 […]
