As I wrote last week, I was really excited Blood Rage was getting a digital implemntation. After having a few games up my sleeve both physical and digital, I thought it was time for a full review. At it’s heart, Blood Rage has been faithfully translated from it’s physical form.
But be warned – if you are playing solo, there are some quirks for the developers to sort out still. If you are playing multiplayer, there are many more severe issues to be sorted.
Another week down, and I don’t know where it went. One thing that I did enjoy was trying out Dragon Castle during the week thanks to a Steam sale. A great game for a fun conversation and hidden depths, the Mahjong Solitaire inspired Dragon Castle is a game that can be easily overlooked. It’s a pity, because I think a lot of players that would pass on it would find a very entertaining title.
Have a great weekend everyone!
There are games that are fun to just sit and play. Sometimes they are innocent fun, sometimes the subject matter can get downright adult. Billionaire Banshee dips it’s toes in the latter, but is still a great game if you want to quickly break the ice with new players.
Once all this is over, we might need a few icebreaker games to get to know people again!
Sometimes you just want a fun game that doesn’t take much brain power. These games should be quick and fun, but can also add twists that keep things interesting.
Boom, Bang, Gold! Delivers on this in spades. While not a game I would build a collection around, it is a versatile solution to many existing libraries.
I still carry around of quick and portable games in my bags. You never know when you have a bit of downtime with strangers to fill out. In A Grove is a great game from Oink Games that ticks all these boxes, but it’s not quite for everyone.
Last week, I talked about digital board games that you can play at home. One game that is hard to describe well is Tokaido, so today I played the digital version!
So the video game side has gotten some attention lately, so time to focus back on board games! And a game that I love that falls between a few cracks timing-wise is Abyss.
Social Deduction games are great, but need a lot of players and can lead to a lot of downtime for players eliminated early. What about a Social Deduction game for 10 players that can be played in 5 minutes?
Icecool and Icecool2 are great dexterity hits a couple of years ago. Then Brain Games slowed down in the IP, until they rethemed Pyramid at least!
