Such a fun game

Reviewed by on

My husband and I are addicted! There is a huge variety of cards which means that every game presents new and exciting scenarios. The actual cards are not the greatest quality (the graphics are really attractive though) so I'd suggest buying some card covers before you start playing (we've lost a few corners from some of our cards...and I am very particular about delicate shuffling, handling and playing). It's really such a fun game though, I'd recommend it to anyone who loves board/card games.

Decent enough, but you get what you pay for...

Not great quality. I surmise it will fray street a few uses. Great colour though!

Also disappointed

Same as 25 Masters review - Advertising was a bit different when my order was placed, Was implied it would be a whole set you would get with a total of 9 boosters, most pre packed and 1 randomised, which could be used to draft. Due to this I placed the order and it turned out to be just a single booster. Which I'm still okay with but annoyed because had the information at the time of my purchase been more clear I would have used the money on something else, like the core set.

Looks amazing

Great detailed design and no visible flaws. The dice came in official Pathfinder box, well sealed.
The colour of ornaments is much redder and darker than on the picture though. There was also about a week-long delay with delivery.

So much fun!

Reviewed by on

This is a very easy and quick game to play. I like the good quality cards. The cards are thick and glossy so they won't bend so easily and you can wipe them if someone spills something on a card. I've played this game countless times with friends and the cards still look new.
It's very funny to watch how people get worked up and excited while trying to get rid of all their cards. New players usually start by sitting relaxed and reading the cards while holding their hand up for a high five or something. But eventually people start to stand up and yell loudly and even jump up and down while waving their hand or fist desperately to get someone to match their card. We changed the game a bit because we're lazy and there's usually not enough space around the table to run and switch places. When we use a switcheroo card we switch that card with another player's switcheroo card instead of running around the table to switch seats.
I use this game as an icebreaker or before we play our boardgames. We usually just play a couple of quick rounds and then people prefer to play something with more strategy and variety but they always want me to bring the game again to the next party. I have however played it over and over for an hour with people who prefer quick and funny games like this.

Travel Japan in the comfort of your home

Reviewed by on

Tokaido is truly a relaxing, fun Japanese-themed board game. Rules are super easy too learn. It's fun with just 2 players as you just add a non player for certain rules/effects, but it's more fun with 3+ players.

The more you play this game, the higher you get your score to be.
The artwork is also really well done.

5th Anniversary Edition includes new artworks and design. Game play remains the same as previous editions.
No expansions included

Good, light RPG

Reviewed by on

This is a fun, light, narrative-driven role playing game. It is ideal for new players or as an in-between for seasoned rpg players. The game is easy to learn and teach. It has a defined beginning, middle and end; and the whole Fiasco can be played in about two hours.
You'll need lots of 6-sided dice (not included). You'll need two black and two white dice per player; i.e. 16 dice for a typical 4 player game.

Zombies spawning all around but luckily you have...a pan! ?

Reviewed by on

Zombicide is a really fun and thematically rich game suited for both 'old school' board gamers and noobs alike. The organised rulebook with simple rules and gameplay examples makes for a fun pick-up-and-play cooperative/solo experience. Each scenario has specific objectives that need to be fulfilled in order to win. Search rooms for gear and weapons but be quiet about it; too much noise draws zombies toward you and you could very well find yourself swarmed and dying fom a horrible infectious bite to the face. Will you keep searching for a weapon that suits your specific skills set or move on and pray the zombies don't catch up? The ton of miniatures are really cool and fatties, runners, and abominations look eager to rip the flesh off your bones. Each survivor has unique skills like an extra search action, extra move distance, or being able to stealthily slip past zombies. These skills (might) help you survive the brainless onslaught. Double sided map tiles and tokens are thick and sturdy and made to last. There are so many other episodes (editions) and expansions out already but this original episode is the perfect zombie gateway for people who either have never played cooperative board games or who have never played a zombie themed game. A fun social game that does not require extreme levels of brain-burning tactical planning. However, the old cliché states that fools rush in and this also applies to Zombicide. You may well have a plan and the right gear, but brainless zombie hordes care not for your fickle plans... Good luck surviving this.

Get a ship, find a crew, do a few jobs, keep flying

Reviewed by on

An excellent large format game, with great artwork mostly taken straight out of the series and movie that the boardgame is based on. Oh... Did i mention large, with the 2 additional maps from the addons (kalidasa and blue sun) the map is massive and you start running out of space on the table when you need to create card piles for the contacts (to get missions) and the stores (hiring crew and equipment)

Games can last very long, depending on how it is played and ofcourse if the players dont know what they are doing because they are new to it, but once you get the understanding of what has to happen, and make a game plan on what you need to do to win, this will cause the game to go along at a good pace.

Players who are a fan of the show will recognise most of the crew and contacts found in the game, like Fanty and Mingo, mr universe and yolanda, and ofcourse the crew of the firefly class ship in the show.

All in all, an amazing game

Live, realtime battleships with 8 people

Reviewed by on

A great social/party game that will have tensions running high when playing the game the way it was meant to be... The real time way.

Communication is key in this game, and having a strong leader in as captain of the sub is a must. Not only does he/she need to be able to communicate with their own team, but also needs to have a strong enough voice to be heard over the other terms shouting too.

Once one team has sunk the opposing sub its really easy to setup for another round and go at it all over again.

Tons of fun!
