Want to be a World Traveler with Friends? A Cooperative Board Game Coming Soon

Party games are wildly popular in the board game space. In fact, even if you aren't a huge board game fan, I'm sure you've heard of games like Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity. So many cooperative games utilize easy to understand mechanics with fun and (often) a take-that sort of mechanic. You are all competing for points, and the most points wins. Cooperative party games are a bit less common, but a new one is about to hit the scene soon titled World Traveler.

If Robots Top Birds, Do Dragons Top Robots?

I’ve been playing Wingspan for a few years now and have always enjoyed the games I’ve played. Recently, a brand new game with a similar feel arrived at the office for review, and my ultimate decision was that in my opinion, the Robots of the new game trumped the birds of Wingspan. So Raising Robot sits near the top of my favorite games list. But now we have something new from Stonemaier Games, Wyrmspan, a Wingspan-esque game but this time…

Raising Robots Board Game Review – The Wingspan Killer?

Raising Robots arrived in late 2023 but joins my top 5 games of the year for many reasons. First, the components included in the deluxe version of the game are phenomenal , and the artwork might be the best art I’ve seen in a board game ever. But there is another more important reason it’s in my top 5 – it’s a phenomenal game that I cannot wait to play again and again! Let’s take a look! The best comparable…

GraviTrax JUNIOR Starter-Set: Jungle

GraviTrax has been a very popular toy in my household for the last few years. In fact, when I compare this toy to others that we have purchased and reviewed over the past few years, this is one that continues to get taken out of the closet, even a few years down the road. My youngest son Lincoln always had issues making all the pieces in standard GraviTrax work, and always felt a bit left out when the rest of…

Diced Veggies – Simple, Yet Engaging

There is something great about taking a game off the shelf and knowing you aren’t in for a multi-hour experience. Don’t get me wrong, I love longer games, and obviously have plenty to choose from. But every once in a while, you just want a nice short game that can be fun for all ages, and easy enough to understand that you can even teach it to someone new in just a few minutes. At GenCon 2023, I had the…

Age of Wonders: Planetfall: The Board Game Review

Video games adapted into board games are not always the best, but over the past year we’ve been enjoying a long list of great board games inspired and built upon the video game IPs. Age of Wonders: Planetfall is a fantastic 4x Strategy Game on PC and console, but it’s also a fantastic card game on your kitchen table! We took this game for a spin ahead of its release in North America, and had a blast! Here are our…

Apiary Review

There are few games as unique as Apiary – who else but Stonemaier Games would publish a game about space bees! I love worker placement games, and Stonemaier does them just about as good as anyone else. Viticulture is one of my favorite games of all time! I had really high hopes for Apiary when I saw Jamey Stagemier showing off some of the components and systems in some of his videos, and honestly, the game did not disappoint. I…

Apiary Unboxing and Components Review

Apiary is one of the more interesting titles to come from Stonemaier Games in my opinion. All Stonemaier products are fantastic, but something about Apiary had me really excited to get it out of the box the second it arrived. Let’s take a look at what comes in the box! There is a bit of punching required before your first game, but the pieces punch really easily and also have fantastic places for storage in the awesome insert included in…

Zoo Tycoon: The Board Game – Great Game, Terrible Rule Book

It’s not often I dip my toes into a really heavy euro style game, but as a lifetime Zoo Tycoon fan, I didn’t feel like I could pass up on this board game version. GamesReviews purchased this copy for me via the Kickstarter campaign, and it was recently delivered to my doorstep. After a quick 2-Player game, I thought I’d push some of my first impressions out to you, so let’s get going! So Much to Understand Listen, this is…
