So I have said a few times that I love the Munchkin Universe, but I don’t play the base game anymore. Today, I review Munchkin and share all of my perceived pros and cons of a game that is going strong almost 20 years later.
It is a rare game that can be transferred from one type of game to another. Istanbul the Dice Game is definitely one such experience – a lot of fun to play, easy to teach, and retains the essence of the original board game.
Want to know a game that the rest of the world seems to love, but Tom Vasel hates? Welcome to Escape the Dark Castle! This is my favourite quick cooperative/solo game in a long time!
If you have a darker sense of humour and love Skull, this is the game for you. Tuesday Knight Games and Anthony Burch have hit it out of the park with World Championship Russian Roulette – but by its very nature, it won’t be for everyone.
Professor Evil and the Citadel of Time is a fun puzzle heist game that emphasises cooperation and agile thinking. I have talked about it a fair bit the last couple of weeks.
Love letter from AEG is a simple game and a whole lot of fun to play. In fact, it’s so good, it feels like Monopoly is the only game with more versions of it! So today I review the classic game and three different versions as well!
Kingdomino is an excellent example of the type of game that the Spiel des Jahres looks for. Quick, fun, easy to teach and learn. it’s no wonder it won board gamings highest honour in 2017.
Splendor is a game that came out and grabbed a large portion of the gaming world by storm. It is simple, addictive, and while the mechanics are identical no game plays the same way twice.
The Grimm Forest is a fun little resource gathering game with interesting ‘take that’ mechanics. Beautifully presented, simple gameplay yet tense play the player feel. Due for retail release March 13th!
