Bolt Thrower #13: Lords of Waterdeep, Insomnia, Game of Thrones, Kite Runner, Gears of War, Spacemen 3
It’s trash culture time. I’ve always been fond of the number 13 because daft people think it’s unlucky. Enough said.Board GamesThe big feature this week is a review of Lords of Waterdeep. I like the game a lot, particularly the way in which the designers seem to have quite deliberately research all the common grievances with the genre and set out to improve them all. And with the partial exception of the theme, they’ve largely succeeded. It’s still a Euro and it’s still occasionally dry and dull but for the most part it’s a pleasing marriage of good strategy...
 
 
Bolt Thrower #4: Commands & Colors: Napoleonics, Making Money, Game of Thrones, Jim Moray
They’re coming at you thick and fast, a veritable storm of fire. It’s Bolt Thrower time yet again, although there shouldn’t be too many back-to-back versions. I plan to use the opportunity to catch up on some longer-running trash culture themes that I might miss in my fortnightly snapshots.GamesOne of the reasons I picked Commands & Colors: Ancients last week was as an introduction to this weeks’ review of Commands & Colors: Napoleonics. It owes a lot to its predecessor, including some holdovers of rules that aren’t entirely necessary, but has enough clever new stuff in it to make...
 
 
Bolt Thrower #4: Commands & Colors: Ancients, The Resurrectionist, Conan, Sucker Punch, Super 8, Avadon
You know the drill by now. Some feeble pun or other on the multiple meaning of the phrase “Bolt Thrower”. I really can’t be bothered today, so let’s get down to it.GamesThere are several games that I’ve reviewed twice, but I’ve made history this week by giving Commands & Colors: Ancients a third going over. The reason for revisiting it is partly because I thought the upcoming Playdek version for iOS made the game of above-average interest for the NoHighScores crowd and partly because I’ve never satisfactorily managed to articulate my feelings on the small fly in the otherwise...
 
 
Bolt Thrower #4: Nexus Ops review, Walking Dead, Trollhunter, Cocteau Twins & PJ Harvey
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It’s a projectile from an ancient siege engine!GamesThe feature this week is a review of the Fantasy Flight Games re-release of Nexus Ops. I’ve always been impressed by the manner in which Nexus Ops managed to cram the entire design history of dudes on a map games into a tiny, manageable and hugely entertaining package, losing nothing but the epic feel of its more unwieldy ancestors. And the FFG reboot gives you all that back of course, plus a wild bunch of very good variants to solve the occasional staleness...
 
 
Bolt Thrower #3: Wiz-War review, American Psycho, Dead Space, Triple Town, Synth Pop & Gothic Rock
Coming at you like a south-bound freight train, or more probably like a spear fired at considerable velocity from an ancient siege engine, it’s Bolt Thrower #3.
