Cat Sack Fever - Felix: The Cat In The Sack Review
When I write about older games I try to find one that a lot of people have played, or maybe one that could be considered a classic. By that standard, Felix: The Cat In The Sack seems awfully slight. It’s a little 30-minute trifle by Friedemann Friese, who is much better known for his bigger designs like Power Grid. It was well-regarded when it came out several years ago, but like a lot of minor hits from that time period it’s been passed by in an age of deckbuilders and crowdfunding.

Although it's not perfect like the first one, it's still excellent.

You Dirty, Rotten... - Intrigue Review
If we were to classify games like boxers, based on weight, I think that Intrigue might win the award for the most conniving game in its class.

My friends and I have joked that you lose a little bit of your soul every time you play, and there are moments when I’ve felt genuinely guilty for what the game is requiring of me. I would only...
 
 
Ivor the Engine Review
British people of a certain age tend to regard children’s animators Peter Firmin and Oliver Postgate as minor deities, so totally did their wonderful conjurations dominate the world of kids TV in the 70?s. Dizzying edifices of imagination and storytelling, built on Firmin’s instantly recognisable art and Postgate’s incomparable animation, they remain a colossal founding pillar of my childhood. Now here there is a game, a modern game, based on my most cherished of all their creations:ÂÂ Ivor the Engine. It’s here, in my hands. This is going to go very well, or very badly. ...
