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. 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

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 […]

Zambezi – Review

During our time at UKGE this year, we focused on getting games that where more accessible, more family friendly. One stall really jumped out at us for this: Burley Games. A father and son operation showcasing some attractive games that wouldn’t look out of place in the quaint toy stores of films like Toy Soldiers. […]

Chook and Sosig: Walk the Plank Review (PC)

Chook and Sosig: Walk the Plank is a fun game, centering around the adventurous kitten, Sosig and his best friend, Chook the chicken ghost. The two of them are with their friends: Exley, the demonic sheep and acting Game Master; Hebble, the cheeky fox with a dinosaur obsession; Min, the psychic, swashbuckling bat; and Cow […]
