Washington's War Review
The first card-driven game that I ever played was Twilight Struggle. I fell totally in love with the card driven mechanic from the outset, but I rapidly became keen to know how the fantastic decision making and hand management aspects of card-driven designs would integrate with a game that offered true maneuver warfare rather than the gradual point-to-point expansion offered by Twilight Struggle. All the card-driven games I’ve tried since have come up short in some regard or other - too long or complex, too random, too little emphasis on the hand management side, but I keep looking. And...
Mansions of Madness in Review
Here we go. The Mansions of Madness Cracked LCD review. I think I mostly concur with Frank on most points, but I lack his restraint. Definitely a complex game from a critical perspective, certain to generate discussion and disagreement. It's the closest thing to Android FFG has released since then.Also, if you care, I've got a review of Koei's new Dynasty Warriors-gone-Greek game Warriors: Legends of Troy. Hardly Homeric.
Warhammer Invasion - Card Game Review
My wife is awesome. I'm going to tell you why.First, she's a trooper. She's had chronic, near-debilitating back pain since an idiot doctor couldn't stop talking golf long enough to do her epidural properly and gave her permanent damage to her spine. She has fibromyalgia, which was misdiagnosed by her doctor, who then proceeded to overdose her on vicodin and predisone. The overdoses resulted in a weakened bone structure, so that her knees were so weakened that they gave out while she was walking and went sideways on her, resulting in weeks of physical therapy (and she still walks...
[Boardgames] The Informalities of Formalities, and a review of Thunderstone: Dragonspire
  Sorry for the long title,'s a shorter edition today, talking about changes to come in the formats of my reviews and articles, oh, and a short review of Thuderstone: Dragonspire.  Short, because the review by Drake's dad was awesome.
Nile: the Juniper Verdict
Let's get this out of the way: Nile is good. I like it. Nile is also exactly the kind of game that's mocked mercilessly on Fortress: Ameritrash. It may as well be wearing a “kick me” sign on its back. This tiny box of 96 cards is freighted with a laundry-list of Eurogame signifiers, including (but not limited to):
Catching Up With Victory Point Games...maybe...
Shellie emailed me a little while ago and said "OMG, have you died? Where is Cracked LCD?". And then she threatened to fire me. The truth is, Bill Abner is completely AWOL, I think he just got a review code for Shogun 2 and as such my four-in-one review of some new Victory Point Games is languishing on his desk. Or I think he might be travelling. So, while you bide your time wondering how much I really didn't like Parsec, here's some stuff from you might like.
Thunderstone: Dragonspire - Card Game Expansion Review
I'm handing over tonight's review to my favorite (read: only) guest reviewer - my dad. He likes Thunderstone, and I don't, so I sent him Dragonspire and he reviewed it for me. Saves me playing the game (which, as I mentioned, I don't like) and gets me out of writing a review. It's like a one-night vacation. So while I kick back and go to bed early, you can enjoy this in-depth look at the newest Thunderstone expansion. Give it up for my old man! And don't forget to tip your waitress. ...
Wrath of Ashardalon Review
Late last year when the release of a new board game in the Dungeon & Dragons franchise was announced I was really excited. It was really good to see a company with the muscle and experience of Wizards of the Coast re-entering the board game market, and I was hoping they’d bring something new to the dungeoncrawl genre, a group of games in which I love the concept but have too often been disappointed by the execution. That game was Castle Ravenloft and this time I certainly was not disappointed. Ever since I’ve been eagerly looking forward to the followup...
Zombie Survival - How The World Ends, In Two Hours Or Less
Zombie Survival - A game of survival and backstabbery that embraces the old idiom, "You don't need to outrun the bear, just the slowest person at the campground!"
Nightfall - Card Game Review
Groff Deathbloodfang, squire of East L.A. and fire marshal of the apocalypse, spread his leathery vampire wings and swooped down out of the night. His prey was below him, hot blood filling his nostrils like the cream in a chocolate eclair. He dove down, down, down, down, down, down and one more time down, claws extended to pluck his dinner out of the inky blackness and devour the human's terror. He was a wolf on wings, a wolverine in a hang glider, a badger on roller skates.
