A while back I bemoaned the lack of good Indiana Jones boardgames. While we're still waiting, however, Alderac Entertainment Group has released the best Indy game so far...it just so happens to not to have Indy in it at all.

Pictured is James Mason as Captain Nemo. He's PISSED. That is a stern look of disapproval if ever I saw one. Why is "Jehmz Mehhhzohn" pissed? Because you're not playing NEMO'S WAR enough. It's one of the best games of 2010, and it along with PHANTOM LEADER rank as two of the very best solitaire games I've ever played.

So the seventh Arkham Horror expansion was released recently; the fourth of the "small box" expansions. Having played with it a few times now, I believe it is the best of the small boxes, but I have to admit that's not necessarily saying much... Much as I love Arkham Horror and the system as a whole, I've never been a huge fan of the small box expansions. Sure, if you're a completist or AH addict you're gonna get 'em, anyway, and it's always nice to have some new items and Mythos cards and location cards to add to...
