You’re not a true reviewer until you make a list. People love lists. Would Schindler’s List have won an Oscar if there wasn’t a list involved? Who’s to say? The question is, what is this list about?
Hope you guys are all enjoying Roll to Review’s Month of Critical Hits, this is the second last review of the event and it’s the party game classic: Dixit. If you have trouble pronouncing the name just imagine owning a dog named Richard. I told my wife that joke, and she looked at me likeContinue reading “Dixit: it’s worth it for the art”
On Tuesday I reviewed Suburbia, a fantastic tile laying city building game, however, I didn’t get around to writing about the expansions. Writing reviews for games is a leisurely stroll through a new area, lots to look at and enjoy. Writing reviews for expansions is like retreading the same path, no need to absorb itContinue reading “Suburbia: Two Expansions and a Corgi”
Suburbia is the second of four board games to feature in Roll to Review’s Critical Hit January, so let’s get the verdict out of the way. Suburbia is great, and I highly recommend it. That’s my opinion, but be aware it’s more biased than usual. I have an affinity for these types of build andContinue reading “Build your dream home, and surrounding Suburbia”
I was going through my collection the other day, and the reviews already up here on my website, and realized that I have a very strong persuasion to light games. Makes sense. I prefer games that I can put on the table and everyone has a good time. The downside to this is that itContinue reading “Four Games to get Excited About”
Ever since the Cold War, business has been bad for mad scientists. They can no longer afford the good monsters. Instead they need to retreat to the discount shop, where the monsters are off-brand and half price, and a salesman follows them around the store. How do you do today? Just browsing? No, sorry, weContinue reading “Get old school cheesy with Campy Creatures”
First off, Happy New Year! We made it past an arbitrary point in time. Now we get to spend the next couple of months awkwardly changing our sevens to eights.
Otters can go to hell. These little bastards ruined not one, but two games of Robinson Crusoe for me. That sentence, and the knowledge that this board game comes with a forty page plus manual, should be enough to determine whether you want to continue reading this review.
The advertised perfect Christmas isn’t something we get in Australia. No snow, inhabitable climate for reindeer, and Australians generally don’t put effort into any holiday – except for Australia Day, when we drink beer, put snags on the barbie and watch the cricket. With that in mind, I’ll be reviewing Christmas-opoly.
You’ve got to wonder what it’s like to be a designer asking a reviewer to check out your game. It’s like in ancient times where the Vikings would sacrifice a lamb to the gods. Did I just compare myself to god? Look at the ego on this guy, after one person asks me to reviewContinue reading “I don’t who you are but I need you to Get Adler!”
