This Doesn't Look Like Fun to Me- DUNGEON LORDS in Review
Pictured is a game that doesn't look like any fun to me at all. Images like this are why I wasn't terribly enthusiatic about Vlaada Chvatil's DUNGEON LORDS prior to release. I thought it was going to wind up being more like THROUGH THE AGES, a good game but something very Euro and not at all what I would expect a DUNGEON KEEPER board game to be.

The essay suggests that if one were to draw a graph and make one axis “perfection” and the other “importance”, plotting the appropriate points for a given poem would yield an overall...

The Best Pro-Wrestling Games
Sports board games are relatively easy things to manufacture. After all, they lend themselves to the medium pretty well (with some exceptions) – there are two players/teams, everyone understands what the goal is, and there’s the option of a time limit. I’ve played great board games of boxing, football, and ice-hockey (well, the hockey one wasn’t great, but at least it existed). There is one sport that seems something of a challenge to do, however, and that’s because it’s not technically a sport: pro-wrestling. When you think about it, though, it should be ideally suited to the...
