Hornet Leader & Cthulhu Conflict Review
When my children were small and I didn't get out much I played a lot of solitaire board games, and I decided that I didn't like solitaire board games all that much. It's hard to see what they give you that a strategy video game doesn't, except lots of annoying overhead. There was, however, one exception: Vietnam air-war game Phantom Leader. It's part of a whole series of related air combat games from Dan Verssen Games. Hornet Leader is one of the more recent and critically lauded entries, and after my experiences with Phantom Leader I...
 
 
Dread Curse - Board Game Review
If a game of high stakes and bloody retribution ye be wantin’, then look ye no further than that fair maiden of the oily abyss, Dread Curse. It be a pirate game of swipin’ booty and death hexes signed onto ye by the devilish voodoo queens and women whose mothers gave them ridiculous fake African names like L-a (pronounced ‘Ledasha’) and Demonica (these are real examples of real people with real names).
 
 
Barnestorming- High Command in Review, Cloud Atlas, Queen
On the Table I was hoping to have part one of my epic interview with DOAII designer Brett Murell up today but I want his sign-off and last thoughts before I post. I think it’s good, I hope y’all will dig it. But while we wait, High Command from Privateer Press goes on the slab for this not really very Halloweeny episode of Cracked LCD.

Temple Hopping - Relic Runners Review
Relic Runners is a game that dwells in the shadowy realm of the okay. It has absorbed too many lessons from modern game design to be anything close to bad. It’s a surprisingly thoughtful design, one that has gotten a little bit better with every play. Still, I’ve yet to play it with anyone who was wowed by it. The response when we finish a game is almost always “not bad,” or “alright.” It’s too competent to be ignored, but too bland to make much of an impression.  
 
 
Board Game Review - Rise of the Zombies
What you really need to enjoy this Halloween is a game that will terrify you, one that will make you want to scream in terror because it will be so terrible. Actually, wait, that is not what you need. I just checked, and you just need like, candy or something.
 
 
Runewars Review
Fantasy wargames have a sad history of being far too much wargame and not enough fantasy, tired repetitions of stacking limits and zones of control but with dragons in place of Panzers. Adventure board games, in a similar vein, have always struggled with the inherent problems of making a genre that celebrates individual achievement and massive power differentials into an interactive, strategic form. Runewars seems like Fantasy Flight's attempt to solve both these problems at one stroke. Players pick a side, build a board and launch into a fast-paced cycle of season-based turns in an attempt...

Circus Train Review
Roll up! Roll up for the greatest show on earth! Who doesn’t love a circus? Well, now you get the chance to run your own in Circus Train. Not in the modern day, of course, with its annoying animal welfare laws and societal distaste for freak-show exhibits, but in depression-era America. This is the second edition of this game. Both it and the original were published by the delightfully cheapskate yet innovative Victory Point Games. Except you wouldn’t know it if this was your first VPG title. In place of the flimsy counters and paper map...
