Sheriff of Nottingham review

Designer: Sergio Halaban and Andre Zatz Players: 3-5 Ages:  Publisher: 14+ We think: 6-8+  Playtime:  Publisher: 60min We think: 30-45mins   I have to admit, I have a bad habit of judging games by their cover (looking at you Great Western Trail), and that also applies to Sheriff of Nottingham – a game by CMON […]

Kingdomino review

Kingdomino won one of the most prestigious awards for board games, the Spiel des Jahres in 2017 – but is it that good? Yes, and no.  The game revolves around the claiming and placing of tiles in a 5×5 block that scores the most points by having the most contiguous land types.  This is a […]

Architects of the West Kingdom review

I’ve talked about Raiders of the North Sea previously as a game that I have loved. From its place one – pick one mechanic through to the simplicity of the solo mode, this game by Garphill and Shem Phillips is one that gets me back over and over.  So of course I was excited with […]

Kickstarter of the Week: Turmoil

This is more of a week of expansions so far with both Anachrony and Terraforming Mars releasing expansions on the platform. For me, though, it was Terraforming Mars – Turmoil that takes the cake this week. Turmoil is the fifth expansion for Terraforming Mars and introduces an aspect of political intrigue, where players must work […]

Best board games of 2016

Well, writing a ‘Best of’ list for 2016 sure seems like cheating, as there was just so much good stuff that was released, but then again it is exceptionally difficult for that same reason. Just looking at the BGG list of games restricted to 2016 is a veritable Hall of Fame, so I will try […]

Kickstarter of the Week: Glen More II: Chronicles

Often a game will release expansions or 2nd editions of rulebooks in order to fix anything that was lacking in the base game, but not the folks at Funtails. In reviewing the already solid 2010 release of Glen More, the team decided that there were a few things that would be changed, so they went […]
