Does 7 Wonders Edifice Add Enough New Content?

7 Wonders is one of the most popular games on the planet right now. And it’s won a ton of awards as well. While many folks think about Settlers of Catan and Ticket to Ride when discussing the gateway in more serious and strategic board games, 7 Wonders should be on that list as well. Not only is it easy to learn and teach, but it is accessible, and each game almost always feels different than the last. This week,…

Wiltopia – Anteater Care (721012) Review

If you saw our review before the holidays of the Wiltopia Animal Care Centre, you will remember that we were very excited about this line of Playmobil products. I have always loved animals, and animal toys are almost just as good as the real thing. For a long time now, I've wanted Playmobil to do a Zoo line of toys, with enclosures and everything. Who doesn't want to build a zoo? The Wiltopia sets, however, are the next best thing, and each comes with a few little animals, so our home collection is slowly growing. Let's take a look at the Anteater Care set!

Is This Batman Set LEGO’s Best Small Set?

This review needs to start with a story. Way back in September, The LEGO Group sent over one of their highlighted Batman sets for 2022, the very fun and great build of the batmobile. Unfortunately, that set ended up at a neighbors house who was vacationing in Florida for...months. After being picked up by a relative of the neighbor, it took the very long journey all the way to Arizona and back, before finally landing on my door a few days ago. Almost two months later. So, the hype for the LEGO DC Batman Batmobile Tumbler: Scarecrow Showdown which is only 400 ...

LEGO Galaxy Explorer LEGO Set Review

When I saw that the LEGO Galaxy Explorer had about 1200 pieces in it, I was expecting a fairly decent build, but nothing compared to the sets I've reviewed that had 1000s upon 1000s of pieces. Boy was a I wrong. Earlier this month we detailed sets that would be nostalgic for adults in 2022, and we listed this set as one of them. Now we are here to tell you why it is so good, and why it would make a great gift this holiday season!

When it comes to beginning your Pokémon Trading Card Game collection, there are really only two places to start if you plan to actually play the game.

But Elite Trainer Boxes give players almost everything they need to start crafting their very own decks

Go to the next Level with Gravitrax Power

I've said it many times before that I think Gravitrax is the best toy currently available on the market. Yes, that is a bold statement, but if assess the amount of money it would cost to buy the Gravitrax sets I currently own, and divide that by how much my kids have played with the toy, it is easily number one. Recently, Ravensburger sent over Gravitrax Power, which adds, well, power! Now my kids can create better marble runs and so much more. This set comes with a fairly high price point, so is it worth it? Let's take a look.
