King of Tokyo review Australia

King Of Tokyo review

Kaiju have always held a special place in my heart since seeing a film in the early 80’s about a monster that took people from their beds and ate them. That special place in my heart was mostly being mortally terrified but not now that King Of Tokyo has found it’s way in. Now I […]

Robinson Crusoe board game review

Robinson Crusoe Review

Beware, here be danger! Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island released by Portal Games and developed by Ignaczy.. is a brutal take on the survival genre. It seamlessly blends worker and tile placement with narrative adventure, and is probably one of the most challenging games that you will play, even though it is a […]

ex libris australia

Ex-Libris Review

Seems that recently I have been fanboying over Renegade Games releases, with the love of Raider of the North Sea and now Ex Libris , designed by Adam P. McIver. I played this at a games night, everyone else had sat down at tables that were far more complex games and I just wasn’t up […]

scythe review australia

Scythe Review

Scythe may have been out a while now, but it has won the hearts of a lot of people and still sits in the top of many reviewers lists, so what is it about Scythe that sets it apart? I come from a background of Warhammer 40k and Necromunda (a looong time ago), so miniatures […]

Azul Review

Azul has been the talk of the town for a little while now, with plenty of convention activity in the States especially with the Giant Azul copies that we see plenty of photos of. So it was time for me to get a copy and see what all the fuss is about. I picked my […]

Sushi Go! Review

Sushi Go! is a classic already and probably the initiation into modern board games for a lot of people. The box is compact and the rules are easy and accessible to the point that they can be taught in probably less than 5 minutes. The games comes with a deck of cutesy sushi cards and […]

Fox in the Forest Australia

Fox in the Forest Review

A trick taking game for 2 players, really? Yup – in another strong undertaking from Renegade and Foxtrot games, they have hit it out of the park with this game.  The game play is super simple,  one player places a card and the second player tries to beat that…or not. The trick of Fox in […]

jaipur review australia

Jaipur Review

  It’s camels, rubies and a couple of cards, how fun can it really be? Well, pretty darn fun indeed! When I originally saw the box for Jaipur and heard about the gameplay, I was totally underwhelmed. This is a game that has sat on the BGG Top 100 list for quite some time, but […]

Raiders of the North Sea Australia

Raiders of the North Sea Review

Plait those beards, slam that mead and jump on the longboat – it’s pillaging time! Raiders of the North Sea is brought to us by Renegade Games and designed by Shem Phillips. From the outset, the game looks super complex, with the amount of placement spots for your workers and the range of items and […]
