RED DEAD REDEMPTION, circa 1982 (GUNSLINGER G.F.T.C)
It's tough to pay attention to board games this week when RED DEAD REDEMPTION is out, an easy contender for Game of the Year and a title that is very, very close to letting me completely fall helplessly in love with it. But I do still love the board games, regardless, although it's a shame that Western themes are usually reserved for crappy games. Or they're silly.

The titles I selected were Pandemic: On The Brink, Ghost Stories, A Touch Of Evil,...
 
 
Design By Committee
A while ago I had the pleasure of reviewing The Hell of Stalingrad by Clash of Arms games. If you can’t be bothered to follow the link, I’ll give you a free pass to the end of the column where I concluded that it was a pretty good and very innovative game that was unfortunately let down by some pretty rough edges, and that it promised to be a fantastic base for future iterations of the series. Well, having not had the chance to play the game in a while I was struck by the desire...
