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...
[Boardgames] "Mousquetaires du Roy" Review
Alright, folks, this is one that literally took me completely by surprise--a game that was not even on my radar previous to its release *at all*, and yet is a game that is completely up my alley.  It's a fantastic co-op themefest straight from the minds of...Ystari Games?!?  Just what is going on here?
Yomi in Review
No need to ramble on about it, everything I want to say is in the review here at
1655 - Habemus Papum - Board Game Review
If there's one thing that identifies gaming as a nerdy pastime, it's the fact that we can make a game about anything. It doesn't take long to exhaust the demon-hunting, Nazi-killing, and alien-blasting, and then we move on to boring crap like farming and storing things. Historical events are traditionally a big winner, but they're generally focused around something violent. For some convincing evidence that we can make a game about damned near anything we want, I present 1655 - Habemus Papum.
[Boardgames] More Gaming Thoughts On The Run
Well folks, I've been running around like crazy the past few days, and since last week's round-up was well-received (and allowed me to get a lot of my gaming thoughts and opinions crammed into one article), I thought I would follow suit this week with some more not-quite-ready-for review discussions about stuff I've played recently.  Next week--The Big Yomi Review, I promise.
Earth Reborn in Review
Pictured is quite possibly the most Ameritrash logo I have seen in my entire life. It's from Earth Reborn, an instant AT classic that kicks all those games with the fancy pants card combat systems and "elegant" hybrid mechanics in the balls.
[Boardgames] Ken B.'s Review Round-Up, Feb 8th 2011
Alright, so I had my mega "Yomi" review almost ready and the !#$*& editor ate my review. So instead, I'm just going to rattle off some quickie reviews of several games I've gotten to play lately. Feel free to talk amongst yourselves. Fast and furious here, folks. Just some off-the-cuff reviews of stuff I've played lately. Bugs (Valley Games, 2-6 players, 20 min.) - Valley Games went on a spree late last year, pushing out several family and card games to supplement their heavier gamer's game selection they had...
Cadwallon: City of Theives Review
Given all the fuss that had been made online about the painted figures for Cadwallon: City of Theives it’s kind of surprising that the game hasn’t actually made that big an impact since release. It certainly hadn’t impacted me particularly. So I was both surprised and pleased to get an unexpected review copy of it from Fantasy Flight Games and doubly so because, with a promised 60-minute play time, it was a game I might actually have a realistic chance of getting to play face-to-face. And so it proved.
Bronze in Review
Pictured is Bronze, a PC game you might very well have never of. I might not have either, but Bill Abner sent me a link to a Tom Chick preview of it a couple of months ago. As you can see, it's one of those futuristic computer board games that shows up on a monitor.
Ace of Aces: Ameritrash in your pocket
Ace of Aces: Handy Rotary Series is the perfect portable, two player game. This World War I dogfight game has no markers or dice to lose. Heck, it has no board. The whole game consists of two books—one represents a German plane and the other represents an Allied plane. It is Ameritrash in a book. Both players start on the same page---but “see” the enemy from the perspective of their own cockpit which is a black and white sketch on each page of the book. Your mission: riddle your enemy with enough bullets to bring down the plane. ...
