Pandemic: Rapid Response Review

0 comments
How do you like the revised 28mm look?

Pandemic: Rapid Response is a race against time. Roll dice to create supplies, fly the plane, and make deliveries to cities in need. As the timer counts down, you must quickly coordinate and work together to react to new disasters. Will you and your team be able to respond in time?

Is using the name "Pandemic" enough to make this variant of "Fuse" worth considering? Or will it be forgotten to time?

The VLOG's have begun and what better to begin with then the decision I've made regarding the debate of which lens to go with? 24mm as before or switch to the new wide angle? Or is there a third option?

Anthology Review #6

0 comments
Ok guys, this is the last video I pre-recorded in wide angle - don't forget to pass the feedback and vote on the poll etc - I need to make an executive decision about the format and both wide angle and the old 24mm have pros and cons for looking professional. A few micro games, and some expansions, but a wide range of likes and dislikes here including a long absent proper rant...........which of these 6 games caused me to go nuts? Mystic Vale: Harmony - 01:30 Memoir 44: New Flight Plan - 05:17 High Risk - 11:45 Nessos - 14:00 Schotten Totten - 17:00 Time Stories: Madame (SPOILERS) - 21.55 #memoir44 #schottentotten #timestories #highrisk #nessos #mysticvale

Realm of Sand Review

0 comments
Ok, just this one and an Anthology I promise! Keep your feedback coming in, vote on the poll in the community section, need to know about the wide angle thing. Would perhaps you prefer the reviews to be 24mm like before and the Top 10's / VLOG's to be Wide Angle perhaps, best of both worlds? Let me know! The Queen of Ragusa has embarked on a journey to the Realm of Sand to save her home. While she travels the plane awaking the power of the glyphs, you as a royal magician must act quickly to assemble those glyphs and stabilize the magic to reconstruct the realm of sands. Who will help the queen save Ragusa and become hero of the Realm of Sand? I like a lot of Emperor S4 games, but can this live up to the others or is this maybe an occasion where the result isn't greater than the sum of its parts?

Small Islands Review

0 comments
Just two more videos including this one in wide angle form, then I'll make an executive decision on the format. I appreciate all the feedback you've all given on whether you like this or the old version. I will be taking it all on board and then deciding soon on which format works best overall. Certainly it's been a mixed bag so far. Small Islands is a tile-placement game in which you are daring explorers discovering a magnificent archipelago. Its islands are brimming with natural resources but also temples from an ancient and mysterious civilization. Brave adventurers, bring back to your clan wealth & prestige! It looks colourful, plays with all players and is easy to learn, whilst having tactical depth.............no way.........could this possibly replace Carcassonne???

Star Wars: Outer Rim Review

0 comments
As I said, I've done a few videos in the Wide Angle format as a test run, I think 6 in total - I appreciate all the feedback you've all given on whether you like this or the old version. I will be taking it all on board and then deciding soon on which format works best overall. Certainly it's been a mixed bag so far. Let's have more Star Wars games, because we don't already have a million of those! :-) But now we venture into the genre of "Pick Up And Deliver" with a smuggler/bounty hunter theme. Does Outer Rim tell a good enough story to warrant its long length? Credit to Adult Swim/Robot Chicken for their hilarious sketches and the Bounty Hunter reference.

Ticket To Ride: London Review

As I said, I've done a few videos in the Wide Angle format as a test run, I think 6 in total - I appreciate all the feedback you've all given on whether you like this or the old version. I will be taking it all on board and then deciding soon on which format works best overall. Certainly it's been a mixed bag so far. A little mini review for you! How do these 15 minute filler Ticket To Ride's hold up and which is better, New York or London - does it really matter in the end?

Top 10 Games That Need A Deluxe Version

0 comments
TA DA!! Wide Angle Lens?! You like? Please say you do! Obviously there will be improvements that can be made, but overall I like that there's no more blurry effects causing people issues with regards to seeing the games behind me or the games I'm holding. More of a fun list this one - there are so many games I like getting a nice deluxe or fancy reprint - but can I think of 10 other games that I feel could benefit from getting pimped up in a deluxe version! Money being no object of course!
