Council of Shadows 3

Council of Shadows Review

In the realm of board games, where strategy meets storytelling, lies Council of Shadows, an intricate tapestry of deception, negotiation, and cunning maneuvers. Developed by seasoned designers and published by Shadowborn Games, this game transports players to a world shrouded in secrecy and political intrigue, where every decision holds weight and every alliance is a double-edged sword.

Fractured Sky Review

Fractured Sky from IV Studio is coming back to Kickstarter with a reprint and an expansion on April 30, and the company was nice enough to send me the Super Deluxe version of the game to review on the website. We’ve already talked about all the components and what you can expect there, so let’s talk about the turn-to-turn gameplay and see whether this is right for you. In Fractured Sky, players will be placing air ships, buildings and more…

Moonrakers Board Game Review

Moonrakers is a combination of something I love and something I generally hate. As a longtime fan of games like Dominion, I would say that I really enjoy deck or bag buildings games. Negotiation games, however, are generally not my cup to of tea. Things like Waterfall Park , while a great production and fun to play, ultimately fall flat for me after a few plays because of the negotiation elements. Still, I’ve managed to play a number of games…

Mandalorians are Stronger Together – Certified Guild Squad Pack Review

It’s been a little while since we put out a review for Star Wars Shatterpoint but we are back with a fully painted squad of Mandalorians to talk about. Ever since I finished watching The Mandalorian on Dinsey+ I’ve been eagerly anticipating a Shatterpoint Squad Pack with Din Djarin and Groku, and it is here! Is it worth picking up, however, or is it simply preying on the desire for fans to get their hands on more Mando stuff! Let’s…

Doomlings Card Game Review

Fun and cutesy card games have been swinging for the fences for almost a decade now. I remember the first time I played Killer Bunnies, and while I wasn’t a huge fan of how long you played, and then it all came down to the luck of what carrots you had, I did enjoy most of the turn-to-turn moments the game offered. Here to Slay is another cutesy card driven experience that threw a lot of wacky ideas onto the…

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…

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 I…

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.…
