Chess has a Deep History
A game that has existed for some time now, chess, is a game that many of us are familiar with. It’s a game that evokes intelligence, strategy, cunning, and something that a lot of people just don’t have any interest in frankly. Despite how much I enjoy the game, it is something I’m pretty willing to admit about chess. With any game like this, you are bound to see variations across different cultures and evolutions as time goes by. Today I’ll be looking at one such game: Onitama. Don’t worry though, this is one game you’ll want to play! Continue reading “Onitama – Simple & Fun”
Welcome to a Gathering of the World’s Best Spiritualists
Your purpose is to channel the spirit of a murdered man and determine who the culprit is. Mysterium is a lot like Clue, except way better.

Can you solve the murder before it’s too late? Continue reading “Mysterium – Is This Your Card?”
High-Rolling Old-School Fun
The first time I played Las Vegas was during a convention my church hosted. Mrs. K, a bunch of strangers, and myself sat down for what was supposed to be “a short fun game” between some of the heftier titles we had been enjoying. Over an hour later and lots of swearing packed to the brim with tension, the dust finally settled and Mrs. K stood victorious. Not bad for a game about rolling a bunch of dice.

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”

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)”
