I’m taking the week off of blogging, and going to enjoy my long weekend learning to play Spirit Island and working my way through Wolfenstein 2. In the meantime if you’re trying to satiate your hunger for fresh board game content. Check out these fine ladies and gentlemen. Till next Tuesday, have a great Easter and enjoy some pictures of Chester, and my blue socks!
The more I blog, the more I sway away from the bigger board game sites. Not that they’re bad, it’s just that there are so many people out there making fantastic board gaming content, and better suited to my tastes. There are going to be a few familiar faces here, but enjoy the fruits of my internet browsing!
It’s 2:00pm Friday, March 16th, 2018. I’m at my desk doing a business, when Janine from the front desk walks through the office with a large wooden crate. Danger, confidential, and top secret are printed in bold red font down the side. She puts it on my desk, complains about her back, and walks off. I wonder what this is, I didn’t have any packages arriving today, did I? People in the surrounding cubicles stand up and apply standard social pressure; anything to break up their 9 to 5.
Last weekend Roll to Review hit a bit of a milestone – 50 subscribers! Thanks to you all for stopping by, and I hope you continue to enjoy the content provided. Anyway, to celebrate – and because I’ve been too busy with work all week to write a decent article – here’s my collection!
Muse is a 2-12 player party game designed by Jordan Sorenson and published by Quick Simple Fun Games. Players break up into teams and attempt to find a mugger in a line-up of gorgeous looking picture cards. Their only clue was given to them by a crazed passerby, who, for some reason, does nothing but hum the description of the thief. If the team can decipher the song and identify the correct villain, then that team moves one step closer to winning the game. Welcome to Muse.
It’s time for us to unshackle the burdens of yesterday and look forward to see what’s new in the world of board games. What are you excited about buying, or playing this month? What about me? How kind of you to ask. Here’s four games which have me positively frothing at the mouth.
Red 7 is a 2-4 player card game designed by Carl Chudyk and Chris Cieslik and published by Asmadi Games. It’s a card game that’s seen Talladega Nights one too many times, as the rules are simple: if you’re not first you’re last. If at the end of your turn you’re not winning, you’re eliminated, with the winner being the last player still standing.
Time Marches on. February for me, was quite successful. I got a major promotion at work, and my son learnt to roll over. Thankfully, one of us is pulling their weight. In terms of the website, we now have a new navigation menu which I hope you’ve already used, and enjoyed.
That’s it! Let’s talk games.
