It’s Halloween. By now everyone has had their fill of pumpkin spice lattes and reviews and playthroughs of Mysterium. For me, I’m opening a blood drenched box holding a half-eaten human kidney and a letter that reads: From hell. Mr Lusk, Sor I send you half the Kidne I took from one women prasarved it […]
This article strongly references my website, though I think it contains a few nuggets of gold for those interested in reviewing board games, or anything else. When I started Roll to Review it was on the ambitious premise of fixing the three big issues that I saw within board game media: Reviewers spending too much […]
This blog isn’t Marvel. We know this because I’m flat broke, and it doesn’t take a year to get a sequel. A couple weeks ago I reviewed Love Letter, and this week I’m back in the expanded Love Letter universe to review Lovecraft Letter. Although there are many flavours of the original game, Lovecraft Letter […]
I’ve hit the point that every board game collector, and hoarder, hits where their collection outgrows their space. Therefore, I’m introducing a new type of review called On the Chopping Block – inspired by Click Clack Lumberjack – where I look at games that will be sold off. These aren’t necessarily bad games, but games […]
There are a few games in my collection where the review is a bigger story than just one solitary review. For instance, I wanted to review Lovecraft Letter but to do that I need to establish my thoughts on the original. Otherwise we’d be skipping forward to seeing Neo being The One, without understanding what […]
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 […]
When I first heard about Mad Love, I thought Harley Quinn. Then I had awful flashbacks to watching Suicide Squad; already, this game put me in a bad mood. To regain my trust, it offered artwork that reminded me of another Batman comic – one of my favourites – The Doom That Came to Gotham […]
I can’t say the name of this board game without thinking about Fatman Scoop, drop the plant, Fatman Scoop, drop the plant, Fatman Scoop, drop the plant, give it up give it up give it up. Always a laugh whenever radio stations go overboard cleaning up profane songs. Anyway, engine, engine NMBR 9 is a […]
When I tell people I like Monikers, they generally look at me and say: really? I’m more of a Rachel, or Phoebe kind of person. Then we sit in awkward silence for a while. Anyway, Monikers is a party game for 4-20 people designed by Alex Hague and published by Palm Court.
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.
