The Forgotten City – Review

You awake in a fantasy world with none of your memories. You enlist the help of magical elves to help you restore your memories through the construction of special temples all while fighting off the nightmares that seek to undo you. The main goal in The Forgotten City is to get the most points through […]

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, […]

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.

UKGE Microgames

Barpig and After Hours Expansion – Review

The best way to describe Barpig is that, much like Mario Party, the game is just there to support the challenges. Distilled down to its key elements, Barpig is essentially just rolling a D6 and getting points and playing cards to switch things up every now and then. But none of that matters as the […]
