Unboxing Marvel D.A.G.G.E.R.S + Initial Thoughts

When Fantasy Flight Games announced that they would be releasing Marvel D.A.G.G.E.R. this summer, I was pretty excited about it. As a huge Marvel fan, a cooperative hero focused game was something I knew I was going to enjoy. Plus, it’s Fantasy Flight Games! There might be great miniatures in the box as well. After my copy arrived in the mail, I was half right, but that isn’t too big of a deal. Let’s hop into the box and see…

Hamlet: The Village Building Game Review

So here we are, near the end of #hamletweek and ready to dump our thoughts of the game onto the page for you to read. This won’t be a how-to-play – we’ve always felt that for more complex games like Hamlet, you are better off watching a how-to-play on YouTube rather than reading about it here! But what do we think of how the game works? Let’s take a peak. The concept behind Hamlet is really good – you are…

I’ve Played Star Wars: Shatterpoint – Here is What I think!

One of the downsides of buying a tabletop war game like Star Wars: Shatterpoint is that you never can play it the same day you get it. Atomic Mass Games and Asmodee Canada were nice enough to send over Star Wars: Shatterpoint Core Box about 10 days ago, and after some hard work, we finally got all the miniatures and terrain painted and where ready to go. It was great that the day we began playing Shatterpoint was the day…

Illiterati Board Game Review

Ever wonder what a world without books and words would be like? No, me neither, and hopefully I never will have to!

So, with the help of friends, you will use tiles to make words, bind books, and save literacy around the world. It’s a silly premise, sure,…

Scythe: Rise of Fenris Review

Whenever you review an expansion, it’s always hard to balance explaining the base game, plus all the new content. Thankfully, we’ve reviewed Scythe in the past  so you can head on over there and check our our opinion. The other tough thing about reviewing expansions is that for many games lately, these expansions have been campaign based, meant to be played over numerous rounds. Within each round, new content gets unlocked that players aren’t expecting. I think you can see…

My Figures a Huge Step for Playmobil

Over a month ago, Playmobil reached out to let us know they were launching a brand new line of Playmobil figures called, My Figures. With My Figures, Playmobil was giving children around the world the opportunity to create their own figures using a wide array of character pieces, instead of just accepting pre-created characters.
