Books of Time Components Overview

When Board & DIce asked if I wanted to review Books of Time, I was pretty excited. Although we were talking about their upcoming title, Windmill Valley (which I’m pumped for as a Dutch Canadian) , that game isn’t quite ready yet for public consumption. So, with the knowledge that Books of Time was in the mail, I hopped over to Watch it Played to learn how the game worked, and by golly was I shocked and impressed by how…

Doomlings Components Review

I’ve been inundated with ads for Doomlings on Facebook for quite a long time now, and while it’s been in my cart on various board game selling websites, I’ve never pulled the trigger for one reason or another. I actually enjoy these kinds of games, and this one seemed so very wholesome, and one that the entire family could enjoy. Last week, Doomlings reached out to ask if I wanted to take a look at the game, and of course…

The Red Dragon Inn 9: The Undercity

For as long as The Red Dragon Inn has been a thing, I’m honestly SHOCKED that I’ve never played the game before. There are people who love this franchise – and purchase every game – and others who don’t. For me, I’ve felt very overwhelmed by the whole idea. The game has been around for so long, with so many expansions, that I’m not sure I wanted the hassle of jumping in now! That was until a review copy of…

Games for my Kids – A look at Captain Flip

Recently, Asmodee Canada sent over the game Captain Flip, and honestly I wasn’t really sure what to think when I began unboxing it and looking at the rules. With only a few pages of rules, this is a very simple game to play that younger kids would have no issues with, but still remain fun for adults as well. In Captain Flip, players will be trying to earn coins throughout the game so that when the game ends, they have…

Harmonies Components Overview

Harmonies is such a great looking game, and the gameplay is fantastic as well. I have almost no complaints about the game, but I do think we need to talk about the game’s components. First and foremost, I think it’s important to remember that Harmonies is coming out as a fairly inexpensive title, and while that means more people are going to get to play it, it also means there need to be some cuts to keep costs down. The…

Boop Board Game Review

There aren’t many games out there as simple as Boop, yet for some reason the strategy is a lot harder to master than I thought it would be. This game came quickly to my wife, but I still struggle after many games to know exactly what to do! Still, Boop is such a great experience and economical as well, which makes it a great little game to pass the time between friends or family. Let’s take a look! In Boop,…

Tesseract Board Game Review

I’m definitely a fan of competitive games for our board game nights, but there are some in our group who prefer cooperative experiences over competitive ones. I’m OK with that as well, but the cooperative experience needs to be deep mechanically for me to really enjoy what we are doing. It’s why I don’t prefer games like Unlocked! As much, and games like, well, Tesseract so much more. This dice drafting, manipulation game is phenomenal, and a cooperative game ...

More Vader in Shatterpoint a Good Thing – Fear and Dead Men Squad Pack Review

A while ago, Shatterpoint fans were treated to an (overly) expensive diorama pack that included a Darth Vader figure. People went nuts for that pack, and that Darth Vader character was really great to have on the table. With the recent releases for Star Wars Shatterpoint, there is now a more affordable Vader with his own Storm Troopers. Let’s take a look at this release and whether it’s right for you! Again, first and foremost, let’s talk about the sculpts.…

One+ 12R Genshin Impact Review

When it comes to phone reviews and GamesReviews, you know we focus on these devices as things for the common person, those wanting to play games, listen to some music, and watch some videos. We look at these not from a technical standpoint, but rather a useability stand point. It’s why, I believe, our phone reviews over the past few years have been so successful. This phone is definitely not for the common person, we need to state that off…
