Summer Gaming Challenge -- Bolide Going the Distance
I had put word out to my friends that I wanted to get at least one session of Bolide in this summer, a full game using the full rules. Having the game be the Summer Challenge gave me extra barging rights, and this past Tuesday proved the perfect moment as the one guy in our group that hasn't cared for it much in the past was away. I was lucky enough to have it with me in spite of driving the beater this week. We played one of Love Letter's cousins (that...

All My Lovin' - Love Letter Review
I’m not sure I actually like Love Letter, but I also don’t know if I’d ever turn down a game of it. What would be the point of refusing to play? It’s such a trifle that I find it hard to believe that anyone would hate it enough to want nothing to do with it. In fact the most impressive thing about Love Letter is probably that it makes a case for itself at all, over easier activities like having a sip of coffee or sitting quietly. It’s just good enough to justify its existence and it makes...
X-Wing Huge Ships Review
We’re used to seeing massively overblown adjectives in game marketing, so much that we probably tune them out automatically. But when Fantasy Flight decided to describe the new big ships for X-Wing as “Huge Ships”, and the play formats that include them “Epic” and “Cinematic”, they weren’t kidding. These things are colossal. Indeed the Tantive is so enormous that I actually felt embarassed getting it out and putting it on the table, as though I were some rich kid with a box of ridiculously overpriced toys flaunting it in front of his friends. ...
Murder by Decree - Tow Jockey Five Second Review
Aside from those in Shakespeare's plays, few fictional characters have been envisaged with so many styles, settings and interpretations as has Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. From an eccentric isolated from humanity by his intellect to full blown action hero to everything in-between. The one thing, though, that always seems to carry through is is his almost super human ability to think, to pick out details, and to draw accurate conclusions there from. I should say "almost always" because in the 1979 movie Murder by Decree, Holmes as portrayed by Christopher Plummer is the most...

Rogue Agent – Passing The Voight-Kampff Test In Spades
I was first introduced to Rogue Agent several years ago, when Rogue Agent’s designer, David Ausloos, had asked me to look at the rules and see if it sounded fun. I still have that file, and I can immediately tell how much the game has changed and developed over the years. Well, fast forward to a little while ago when I saw that Michael Barnes reviewed it, and that it was out, thanks to Stronghold Games. I didn’t read the review, and  I don’t much keep up on the hype wagon, so it came as a bit of a...
Heroes and Wonders - Mare Nostrum Review
I received my copy of Mare Nostrum in a trade almost five years ago, and I have played many times. Just this weekend I played it after an extended hiatus. We were playing with the Mythology expansion, where the players have the option to call upon the favor of a god to give them a one-shot boost for the round. I made the foolish decision to spend the resources to use a god that actually was a lot less useful than I had expected. Mare Nostrum is not a very forgiving game when it comes to wasting resources, and...
