Bosk Review

0 comments
From majestic Maples to ancestral Oaks, players nurture their trees aiming to thrive over the course of a year in a beautiful National Park.

In the spring, players carefully grow their trees, scoring as hikers enjoy traveling the trails in summer.

When autumn comes, leaves fall in the ever-changing direction of the wind, guided to cover the terrain and other players’ leaves. Points are awarded in winter for the most coverage of each region in the park.

Gain your ground in the park to be victorious in Bosk!

Vindication Review

0 comments
Thrown overboard for a life of wretchedness, you wash ashore a hostile island ruins — completely alone with nothing except the breath in your lungs and an undaunted spirit.

Through your advanced resource management, area control tactics, and freeform action selection, you’ll add companions to your party, acquire bizarre relics, attain potent character traits, and defeat a host of unusual monsters in the ultimate goal of mastering heroic attributes — and regaining honor.

It's got its fans in the board game industry as one of the most unique Euro's out there. Will I be one of them also or will I live long enough to be disappointed?

This is a long review due to the amount of content to cover. Some of this is the core game and the rest is stretch goal expansion content.  The talk about the expansion content is at 17:55 so if you want to skip ahead to the verdict, you'll find it at 32:33 onwards.

Deep Blue Review

0 comments
Deep Blue is a press-your-luck and engine-building, family game in which players dive for wealth and may join and benefit from other player's diving fortunes. In this game, players have to collect the right crew of divers, sailors, and archeologists, race to wreck sites to claim the best spots to dive from, and scout the seas to discover new wrecks. Players have to take risks if they want to be the most wealthy diver! Days of Wonder is one of the titans of making family games - can this new unknown venture tick all the boxes and deliver a satifying, but short experience? #deepblue #daysofwonder #dicetower #brokenmeeple #lukehector

Hadara Review

0 comments
Hadara carries you off into the world of cultures and countries of this earth. Over three epochs, you will experience the transformation of your new world from a small settlement to a high culture. You want to populate this world with people who come from different cultures and continents as well as different ages. To bring glory and honor to your world, you should choose the persons and accomplishments skillfully. But you should not ignore agriculture, culture, and military power, otherwise one of your competitors might get bigger and more successful than you. Who will succeed first in creating a new flourishing high culture? I keep hearing the words "7 Wonders Killer" mentioned on the grapevine - that's a bold claim to make - can Hadara manage to rival such a titan in drafting games or is this going to be a flash in the pan?

Season 3 Episode 10 - Scotland & Jadedness

0 comments
Today, I talk about my thoughts and experience on my recent invite to Tabletop Scotland in August 2019 including an oldie of a superhero game that I finally got to play.

After that, I tackle a rather solemn topic - is it possible with all the thousands of releases and Cult of the New being a devil's advocate for Hype that some of us gamer critics and fanatics can become jaded?
