There’s an old joke: a Freudian slip is when you say one thing but mean your mother. I feel like this encapsulates what CrossTalk is all about, you’re trying to get your team to guess the meaning of the word in vague yet creative ways. It’s a team-based party word game where you need […]
As trashy as Jersey Shore gets, it doesn’t hold a candle to the Greek gods. Zeus, for instance, slept with anyone and anything, and ended up having more babies than a kindergarten. Seriously, once you hit double digits, maybe it’s time to consider a vasectomy? I mean I’m six months into having my first child, […]
Given the Commonwealth Games are 100km away, you’d forgive me for mistaking Jump Drive for a board game about the determination and drive required to become a professional long jumper. Instead, what I found was a baby board game; essentially My First Race for the Galaxy. A 20 minute engine builder for 2-4 players, designed […]

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 and […]
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 it […]
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, we […]
