Playmobil T-Rex Hunt Review

A few years ago, Playmobil ran a line of futuristic dinosaur themed playsets called Dino Rise, and while my son was really into dinosaurs, I think all the guns, lasers, cannons, and more threw him off a bit and the set wasn’t as popular as I would have thought.

Rise of Babel Board Game Review

Bible themed games have really been peaking my interest as of late.

In our first impressions article for Rise of Babel, we said that the game was pretty strong, although we questioned how it would hold up after a dozen or more plays. Now that we’ve had more time with the game, we…

I am a huge sucker for games that involve animals, whether the game uses cards, animeeples, or even cardboard chits.

Aquatica Board Game Review

A few weeks ago, we did an overview and first impressions of the components for Aquatica and were very impressed with it all. From the box insert to the board and Manta pieces, there were very few things we had issues with when getting the game unboxed. But a good looking game can only get you so far – how much fun is Aquatica? Let’s take a look! In Aquatica, players will head beneath the waves to play cards, get…

Playmobil myLife 50th Anniversary Large Zoo

When the representative for Playmobil reached out a couple months ago and asked whether we would be interested in reviewing the Large Zoo, a brand new set to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Playmobil, I was instantly intrigued.

What Lies Beneath – A Solo Dungeon Crawl Review

Since I began working at home for my day job, I’ve been really intrigued by solo board games. The thing is, setting up a massive game to play all by myself isn’t really all that much fun, so lighter and quicker solo games are the things I love to play. Over the past few weeks I’ve been playing through What Lies Beneath, a solo dungeon crawl experience within a decent sized book, and it was way more fun than I…
