You Dirty, Rotten... - Intrigue Review
If we were to classify games like boxers, based on weight, I think that Intrigue might win the award for the most conniving game in its class. It forces the player to make endless promises to get ahead, and then it makes you break at least some of those promises, trampling on the needs and desires of your fellow players. My friends and I have joked that you lose a little bit of your soul every time you play, and there are moments when I’ve felt genuinely guilty for what the game is requiring of me. I would only...
 
 
Ivor the Engine Review
British people of a certain age tend to regard children’s animators Peter Firmin and Oliver Postgate as minor deities, so totally did their wonderful conjurations dominate the world of kids TV in the 70?s. Dizzying edifices of imagination and storytelling, built on Firmin’s instantly recognisable art and Postgate’s incomparable animation, they remain a colossal founding pillar of my childhood. Now here there is a game, a modern game, based on my most cherished of all their creations:ÂÂ Ivor the Engine. It’s here, in my hands. This is going to go very well, or very badly. ...

Eight Minute Empire Review
Of all the lies that are told in the context of board gaming, the biggest and most odorous are those printed on boxes alongside the legend "playing time". Yet even amongst this exalted company, Eight-Minute Empire reaches new heights of outrage. Whatever it says on the box, the rules inside freely admit that it's probably three whole times as much as claimed, and my experience supports that. Of course, that's still only twenty to thirty minutes. So I might be over-egging this pudding just a little. The game itself is aggressive area majority...

Hex Education - Wiz-War: Malefic Forces Review
For several years, I’ve was convinced that Fantasy Flight’s greatest reprint was the outstanding work they’ve done on Cosmic Encounter. They republished a long out-of-print classic and made it relevant for new audiences, but they also support it with solid expansion work that keeps taking players deeper in the world of the game. Well, don’t be surprised if one year from now we’re crowning a new champion, because I’m starting to think that as an update to a classic game Wiz-War might be even better. The first expansion, Malefic Curses, is everything it needed to be. I can heartily...

Devastation of Indines - Fighting Game Review
Before I starting writing this review, I had to go back and find the review I wrote of its predecessor, BattleCON. In case you’re wondering, I used the word ‘battle’ an awful lot when I write reviews. It took me half an hour to find the old review. For no reason I can understand, I found a review of a kiddie game called Best Day Ever that was the Worst Game Ever. Because I said ‘battle’ in that review.
