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. […]

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.

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 […]

Wordsy – Review

Formal Ferret Games, Wordsy, Word Game

I work with words all day every day. I study creative writing at university so Wordsy seems like a game I would kick butt at but no! Apparently not! Apparently when I’m put on a timer my brain will throw the mental dictionary out the window and scream. And I love it. Wordsy has you […]
