Wayfinders Review

Engines purring, goggles down — the seaplane is set for take-off! Welcome to the whimsical world of Wayfinders in which intrepid explorers race to chart new paths through the skies.

You will need to think on your feet and outfit your planes with the right gear to arrive safely — but building hangars on islands and stocking them with parts can help you zip around with ease! Be sure to be keen in your planning and you will unlock the charms of the islands. Wheels up — adventure awaits!

The game may be fun, but will the colours and graphic design allow us to enjoy the experience?

Walking In Provence Review

Walking in Provence is the second game in the "Walking in" series, bringing totally new ideas and mechanisms but the same experience to the first design Walking in Burano.

Located in southeastern France, Provence is home to one of the most picturesque views in the world. Every summer, the vast fields of lavender flowers bloom and their vibrant violet petals sweep across the fertile green fields covering them in a sea of purple. Neighboring golden ears of wheat, the brilliant yellow sunflowers, and the fearless blue sky all come together to create the perfect picture moment. Ready your camera and capture this breathtaking scene.

Place the Scene Cards then move the Photographer and Drone in order to take different photos in the game. The photos and the various scenes will score points. The player with the most points at the end of game wins.

Does it bear any similarities to Walking In Burano? Perhaps it's more similar to another game elsewhere? Either way, does it hold up and continue the ongoing trend of quality small games from Emperor S4?

Top 10 Hidden Gems

Time for another Top 10! You'll get to see this during the Dice Tower Marathon at the end of November as well, but for those subscribed to the channel you can check it out here! However take note that my next Top 10 (Games of 2018 Retrospective) will premiere during the Dice Tower Marathon and then be uploaded to YouTube on this channel about a week later.

For this list, I look at my collection and think of those games where I had no idea going in what to expect or would not have even looked at them twice normally, but yet became staples in my collection. Those "hidden gems" that you're glad you found that maybe others have yet to see.

Detective Club Review

Detective Club is a board game for players who enjoy party, with simple rules that take just a minute to explain. Intrigue, sudden revelations, limitless creativity, and tons of fun await you in this game! Lead the investigation as a detective, or cover your tracks as the infiltrated conspirator. Discuss, accuse, object and try to convince everyone.

In Detective Club, on each round, one of the players secretly teams up with another — the Conspirator — and tries to make them guess a secret word using just two illustrated cards! Other players are detectives, who also know the word, but don't know the identities of each other. Detectives have to find out who the conspirator is, making sure they don't get accused by their fellow players!

Spyfall meets Dixit...........sounds awesome! Does it execute it well? And did I just put Spyfall on the Bring and Buy?..............

Trails of Tucana Review

Trails of Tucana is a flip-and-write game from the creators of Avenue and Doodle City that is quick and easy to play, but has enough depth to entertain gamers. Each player is given a map of the island Tucana, showing its villages and important sights. The positions of the villages are randomized for each player, so every game will provide a unique puzzle. Each turn, one player flips over two terrain cards. Each player must draw — on their own map — a trail between two neighboring spaces of the shown terrains. Gradually, the trails will grow into a network of roads. Players score points by connecting matching harbors, and by connecting sights to harbors. Being the first to connect a pair of harbors provides bonus points. To add depth to the game, there are varying distribution of the different terrain cards. Mountain cards are for instance rarer than desert cards, so it would be harder to build a trail through a mountain range or over water than through desert or forest. Players need to take this into account when planning their routes. And they should maximize the probability that they will be able to make use of any combination of terrain cards that may come up. It all sounds fine, but this is a bloated genre, does this stand out on its own or is it "JUST ANOTHER FLIP AND WRITE GAME"? #trailsoftucana #aportagames #brokenmeeple #dicetower #lukehector

Arkham Horror LCG: Dream Eaters Review

There is a hidden realm outside the world of the waking: a realm of wonder, imagination, and nightmares. After occult author Virgil Gray writes about his adventures in these “Dreamlands,” you decide to set forth and learn the truth for yourself. What is real, and what is fiction? And what secrets await in the dark, forbidden places beyond the gates of sleep? The Dream-Eaters is the fifth deluxe expansion for Arkham Horror: The Card Game. In this expansion, 1–2 players take on the roles of either a group of investigators venturing into the Dreamlands or their companions who have been left in the waking world. This expansion contains the first two scenarios of The Dream-Eaters cycle; one scenario for each of these two groups. This expansion also contains new investigator and player cards that increase the customization options for the game. #arkhamhorror #fantasyflightgames #dreameater #brokenmeeple #dicetower #lukehector
