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, folks...it'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 Nohighscores.com 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.
 
 
Wrath of Ashardalon in Review
Uh oh! It's another positive review of a new game. The Cult of the New strikes again!
 
 
Summoner Wars Reinforcements - Game Expansion Review
One of the very few downsides to being a game reviewer is that I don't get to play the games that I really like as much as I want. If I have a spare night to play a game (and I'm not playing 500), I usually have to play something so I can write about it. This means that as much as I would love to break out some old favorites, I have to devote myself to playing crappy Reiner reprints far more than is pleasurable (of course, when it comes to a crappy Reiner reprint, one play is...
