It’s that time of the week again. Where we look at the latest hotness arriving on the shelves, and on the Kickstarter front page.Continue reading “Board Game News! – 08/05/2019”
This fortnight CMON dominates both the regular and Kickstarter news. But if you’re not into carrying around suitcases of minis, there’s plenty of other surprises to look forward to.Continue reading “Board Game News! – 25/04/2019”
This week sees the return of Plaid Hat Games, a new Ryan Laukat reveal, and more than enough Kickstarters to leave your wallet begging for mercy.Continue reading “Board Game News! – 10/04/2019”
First up – I’m sick again. I got an ear infection on Friday, meaning I’ve barely left my bed since. Thanks to modern medicine, and some horrible tasting pills. I’m back on the road to recovery.
It feels great to be human again.
Unfortunately, this means no review again this week.
I will get to that Dawn of the Peacemakers review!
In the meantime… I’m doing a board game clear out.Continue reading “Marie Kondo Destroys My Board Game Collection!”
In terms of actual news this week, there hasn’t been too many announcements. Or at least not many I’ve been interested in.
I wonder if this is the way board gaming is going to go. With everyone milking the Kickstarter cow, and fewer publishers going straight to retail. Are we going to see less, and less news announcements?Continue reading “Board Game News! – 06/03/2019”
Two years ago there was a mad rush. Everyone – man, woman, and monopoly dog clamoured for Forbidden Stars. FFG had lost the Warhammer licence, and it was going out of stock. Never to be seen again.
Until now?Continue reading “Board Game News! – 20/02/2019”
Writing a blog consistently is hard.
Writing a board game review blog is harder.
It takes X amount of games to get a feel for how it plays. And while I’m fully invested. Not everyone shares my enthusiasm. Meaning I don’t always get to play as much as I want or need to keep delivering content.
The next game I want to review is Dawn of the Peacemakers, I’m two games into the campaign. So far it’s great, but I definitely want to get more under the belt before I come to any conclusions.
So there’s that.
More personally, I’ve been dealing with anxiety and depression issues recently. While shitty in general. This changes writing from something I love to do, to being a chore.
Which absolutely sucks.
Therefore, there’s no review this week.
However, I am trying to get the group together, so there’s hope for next week.
In the meantime, I went to Australia Zoo on the weekend. I had as good a time as I could, and saw lots of animals – and took lots of pictures. Enjoy.
I’m having a love-hate relationship with Kickstarter right now. I love that for the most part it’s become a board game pre-order shop. I hate it, because there’s too many games that look amazing!
More on that later
Let’s first talk about the new game from Stonemaier Games. Who don’t make many board games, but when they do – you pay attention. Wingspan is a medium weight, card based, engine building game about birds.
Which sounds silly, but it looks gorgeous. And early reviews say that Stonemaier’s impeccable record is still intact. It’s a game to get excited about for sure.
Except I can’t.Continue reading “Board Game News! – 05/02/2019”
