The Vanguard Of Honour - Space Hulk Review
Since I’ve been in the hobby, I don’t think there’s been an event quite like the 2009 release of the 3rd edition of Space Hulk. There was a lot about it that we may never see again. It was before every classic from the 1980s was getting a major reprint, before Kickstarter created dozens of miniatures games that cost over $100. It was wholly unexpected and at that point arguably the biggest hobby board game release ever. And for the hobbyist sector, it had a bizarre and far-reaching response within the online community. A concerted effort by the game’s...

Hold Fast: Russia 1941-1942 Review
I'd wager that the Eastern Front of World War 2 is the most common setting for board games, ever. More so than the far future, or a Tolkienesque fantasy or even satisfying the whims of Renaissance nobles. So why do Worthington Games think we need another? The answer is that there isn't another Eastern Front game quite like this, at least not in the modern canon. It's a block game, like Eastfront, but that's a far less approachable title. It's low unit density like No Retreat, but that's a far more complex title. It's easy for...

Doomtown Reloaded - Card Game Review
As many of you prepared for your annual trek to GenCon, I feel certain there are a bunch of you planning on making a beeline for the Alderac booth to pick your new, shiny copy of Doomtown Reloaded. And I can hardly blame you – Doomtown was one of the greatest CCGs I ever played, and to this day, remains my absolute favorite. Evil monsters, heroic undead, gunfights and horses and ghost rock – Doomtown was an Old West horror game that always left me half-wishing I could visit, and half-glad I couldn’t. And it wasn’t just the setting,...
 
 
Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Review
There have been many, many attempts at blending role-playing games and strategy games. Until recently, almost all fell foul of the fundamental mismatch between playing co-operatively in the imagination and competing on a board. The latest iteration is Pathfinder: the Adventure Card Game. Based on the famous role-playing game of the same name it may be the purest distillation of the adventure game concept yet. It’s smart, simple and packed with potential variety. But for all the benefits it boasts it trips on perhaps the most basic hurdle in game design: it just isn’t terribly interesting...
