Immediately, Skull will Grab your Attention or Turn you Away
The artwork for this game is absolutely stunning but don’t let that fool you. Skull is one tense, cut-throat bluffing game that is simple to play but hard to master. I haven’t done a board game review in awhile, so let’s dive in and take a look at this gem of a game! Continue reading “Skull – Beautiful to Behold, Cut-Throat in Play”
Whether You Are Playing the Original, Pictures, or are Deep Undercover, Codenames is Surprisingly Tense
Lately, I have been playing a TON of Codenames. Supporting 2-8 players and only taking about 15 minutes (often less), it’s not surprising that any version of the game has an easy time hitting the table. Codenames feels a lot like playing Battleship, except your ships are words and you WANT to hit them. Continue reading “Codenames Review – Battleship With Words”
Is This Target Exclusive Worth It?
Definitely. Machi Koro Bright Lights, Big City is certainly similar to the original version which I reviewed awhile back, but with some major improvements. So what’s different with this one and what do you get in the box for $29.99? Continue reading “Machi Koro Bright Lights, Big City Review – Target Exclusive”

Sushi Go! is a quick card game that has players attempting to create the best sushi dishes in order to score more points than their opponents. As cards are passed around the table, much like sushi going around on a conveyer belt, players must choose wisely from amongst what’s left. Sushi Go! makes for a great game for any group due to its easy to understand rules and fast play time. Continue reading “Sushi Go! Review (And Sushi Go Party! Too)”

Having gotten much enjoyment from various city building and city management games, when I heard of Machi Koro I was intrigued to say the least. Machi Koro is a game for 2-4 published by IDW games. The game has players build up their own individual cities (comprised of cards) in order to be the first player to build all four landmark cards. This is a review of only the base game of Machi Koro, though it should be noted it has a few expansions that I’ll link to at the end. Continue reading “Machi Koro Review”

Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner I thought I’d take a look at this small dexterity game for 2-5 people that uses magnets. It’s simple to play and make for a good time for couples or a small group of friends. Hearts of Attraction is based on the original Attraction game, the only difference being heart shaped pieces. With that said, let’s see what this game is all about. Continue reading “Hearts of Attraction Review”

You and your fellow detectives arrive at the scene of a murder. Initially, everything seems pretty routine. That is, until you realize that one of your coworkers must be the murderer.

Love Letter from AEG is a small card game for 2-4 players. The game has a million versions (I wish I was joking) that are all more-or-less the same in terms of gameplay. Personally, I prefer the original Japanese version with translation. However, there are versions for all tastes ranging from Adventure Time to The Hobbit. Continue reading “Love Letter Review”
