Next of Ken, Vol. 3:  Crows Review, Castle Ravenloft Solo Impressions, and Nightfall afterthoughts
What's this, what's this?  Don't get spooked--just come on in for quick reviews on Crows, Castle Ravenloft solo impressions, and a wrap on my thoughts about Nightfall.
Get the whole family to hate you with Survive: Escape From Atlantis!
I played my first game of SURVIVE! only months before the release of the reprint from Stronghold Games. Upon completion of the game, a rare thing happened: I decided that I needed this game and my wife actually agreed with me. And that's not the only thing that makes SURVIVE a rare case. There's plenty of games out there that are revered as classics by older gamers, but for younger guys like me, it's clear that those legacies are built upon nostalgia. But SURVIVE holds up. The perfect balance between strategy,...
Der Pate in Review
Yep, I'm totally Game Zing y'all on this German-only import it's a game based on the Godfather. Totally Euro, totally great. Review is at, of course. I've also commandeered the front page of the site once again and I've got a ton of video games writing there. There's an "A" review of Super Street Fighter IV 3D and Samurai Warriors: Chronicles for the new 3DS platform as well as a review of a surpisingly good XBLA title, The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile. Coming soon are reviews for Ridge Racer 3D, Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars (really good, BTW), and Red...
The  Target: Shoot to Thrill
Thrill is  an overstatement.  How about “Target: Shoot to have a lot of fun pretending to be a spy.”  I dunno- it just doesn’t have the same ring.  
Mousquetaires du Roy in Review
Oh, horrors! F:AT is running a front-page review of a Rio Grande Games title...made by Ystari, the guys that did Caylus! And- oh shit- it's POSITIVE! Silly Barnes, we're not supposed to like new games! And look at's A CO-OP GAME! Aren't F:ATties supposed to, by doctrine, be sick of those since the Eurogamers like them too and there's more than two in print? Review is in its normal place- read at your own risk, it shakes the very foundations of Ameritrash. "He criticized FLAVOR TEXT! Get him!"
A Game of Thrones LCG - an overview
After Matt Drake's Warhammer: Invasion review and Dragonstout's Magic primer, I figured I should pimp my favorite card game: A Game of Thrones, FFG's flagship Living Card Game (or LCG).
Labyrinth: The War on Terror Review
Seeing as I’ve been ranting on about card-driven games on a regular basis for some time now it should come as no surprise to anyone if I repeat that Twilight Struggle is my favourite game. But I feel the need to restate it anyway just in case someone should stumble across this piece as a stand-alone and doesn’t have any knowledge of all the other stuff I’ve written. So sorry if I’m starting to sound like a mechanical parrot, but there we go and frankly, it’s such a great game that the sentiment bears...
Flash Point: A Great Firefighting Co-Op game (in need of some better roles)
Flash Point is an indie co-op game, designed by Kevin Lanzing and published through the Game Crafter, where a group of players (1-6) fight against a spreading fire in a house, trying to pull out all of the victims before the house collapses. This review is based on having played the Java version of Flash Point (pictured below) several times. First of all, I have to say that the Java program for this game has got to be one of the best PC versions of a boardgame I've ever seen. My only complaint is that there's no way...
Nightfall in Review
Hey look, a deckbuilding game! But this time, at least it's less Dominion than any of the others so far...and I think there's enough new here to call it a "next gen" deckbuilder. Review is up at Gameshark.
Sturgeon: the Juniper Verdict
Some games are intended to make a point or to demonstrate a principle. Sturgeon -- published by Minion Games -- was intended, I assume, to prove Sturgeon's law, which states that ninety percent of everything is crap.
