Krosmaster Arena - Board Game Review
With my daughter less than a year away from moving out of my house, I find myself casting about for any way to connect with her. She’s not game for all the stuff we used to do, like hanging her upside down and banging her head on the floor. For one thing, she’s too heavy for that now, and I’m not nearly as fit as I was when she was six. She doesn’t even want to play games with me any more, because she’s got her own friends who come over for that (they meet twice a month to...

Warage Review
You'll realise, no doubt, that Warage is a clever play on words. Making a compound of "war" and "age" cunningly creates the word "rage", conjuring the white heat of fantasy melees, the ancient and primal fury felt my elf for orc and vice versa. It's a smart title. The game underlying it is not smart. It's a dumb game, but it's dumb in a good way, the sort of way that an overly playful rottweiler puppy is dumb, full of teeth and fluff and eagerness. It's a game where you slap down cards, gloat and chug...
 
 
Next of Ken, Volume 79:  Magic, Thunderstone Advance, Disc Duelers, and Maximum Throwdown!
"Just Come In When You Can, Ken." I had a boss long ago tell me that as I was clocking in five minutes late. I have a feeling he was being sarcastic, but you can never be too sure.

A Once and Future Rumble - Duel of Ages II Review
The first iteration of Duel of Ages came out ten years ago, but it’s follow-up feels like something much older. I don’t mean that in a dismissive way at all, but rather that the game eschews a lot of design trends and so-called advances from the last 15 years or so in favor of something elemental and pure. It’s a little like playing an old-school video game that bypasses all influences in the 3D age and instead steals from every game of the SNES era. I suppose Duel of Ages II will confound a lot of contemporary gamers, but...

Hornet Leader & Cthulhu Conflict Review
When my children were small and I didn't get out much I played a lot of solitaire board games, and I decided that I didn't like solitaire board games all that much. It's hard to see what they give you that a strategy video game doesn't, except lots of annoying overhead. There was, however, one exception: Vietnam air-war game Phantom Leader. It's part of a whole series of related air combat games from Dan Verssen Games. Hornet Leader is one of the more recent and critically lauded entries, and after my experiences with Phantom Leader I...
