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.

Remember that scene from Terminator 2 where Arnie’s thumbs up sinks into the molten steel. You don’t cry because you’ll know he’ll be back. Well, replace Arnie’s golden thumb with Dunethe boardgame. After 35 years, it has returned.

Can you believe it’s February already? I’ve been so busy with work and child that it’s all been a bit of blur. Anyway, let’s take a look back at how January unfolded.

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 like I belonged in an insane asylum. It was a nice change from her usual I can’t wait until you’re in an insane asylum look.

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 review their game, I act like I’m a doctor. If you didn’t get that, it’s because you’ve never heard the joke: what’s the difference between a god and a doctor? The god doesn’t walk around thinking he’s a doctor. Anyway, this is my round-a-bout way of providing a disclaimer that Get Adler! was provided for free.

I can’t swim. I mean, I can swim but I’m really bad at it. In high school I was nicknamed ‘the drowning rat,’ and that was before the school got involved. They had a mandatory swim class which I excused myself from every chance I could – probably explains why I’m so bad. At the end of the semester they awarded certificates based on how well you performed. The best swimmers receiving a Shark certificate, then dolphin, then manta ray, turtle, and so forth. For me, they gave me a Starfish certificate. Let that sink in for a second; starfish don’t even swim! Given all of this, would someone tell me, why the hell I bought a board game based entirely in the ocean?
