My collection has finally reached a size where there are some games I’m afraid to play. Whether it’s the setup time, the large amount of rules, or something else entirely, these games look down from the shelf, and intimidate me more than Stronghold Games’ new logo. So what are these scary games, and why do they frighten me so?
Dave Collinson is getting married in nine days. If you don’t know of him, he’s pretty cool. He’s an artist who’s done some work on board games, has his own board game called Lumberjerks, and a game he’s been working on just recently came out of early access called Damsel. If you haven’t heard of him till now, do yourself a favour and checkout his portfolio here.

I prefer games that I can put on the table and everyone has a good time. The downside to this is that it leaves a hole in my collection: medium weight games. Here are four medium weight games, that I’m extremely excited about:
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.
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.
My first news – how exciting! In this post you’ll find the latest news concerning Roll to Review, the new board games I’ve bought over the last month, as well as new games I’m excited for coming out soon. Let us know what you think of this type of post and if it should become a monthly feature.
