Cute filler game

Reviewed by on

Quick and simple. Don't have to think too hard, and the unicorns are adorable! Works better with a medium-size group (5 players). It's nice to have in a collection for when you're just in the mood for something light to play.

Good Penny Sleeves

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

Good penny sleeves I'm using to protect some of my board game cards.

Would not recommend for games that require a lot of shuffling, but it is a good
alternative to the more expensive sleeves available, especially with games commonly
having 200+ cards.

Dread! ... Not the feeling... the RPG.

Reviewed by on

So you think Jenga is just a traditional dexterity game? Maybe you think it's just for kids.

No.

Buy Jenga so that you can play DREAD - the RPG. The rulebook is actually freely available online and it's a GREAT suspense/thriller/horror game.

Here's how it plays and how you use Jenga:

Perfect size for CATAN cards

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

***IMPORTANT NOTE: THE PACKS CONTAIN 60 SLEEVES AND NOT 50 AS ADVERTISED. CATAN HAS 120 CARDS, SO I WAS ANNOYED THAT I HAD TO BUY 150 SLEEVES.

WHEN THE ORDER ARRIVED, I SAW THAT IT WAS IN FACT 60 SLEEVES PER PACK, WHICH DOES MAKE SENSE, ESPECIALLY FOR SUCH A CUSTOM CARD SIZE.***

Catan cards are a weird size, and putting them in larger sleeves are awkward.

These sleeves are perfect for protecting your cards, and they are a great quality, from a great brand.

The only thing I'd have liked was a few extra sleeves, in case one breaks (because 2 packs of sleeves are just enough to sleeve all the cards). Luckily the cards don't really get shuffled that often, except for the developments, but one or two extras would've been nice

Raru Admin Note:

Thank you for letting us know. We have updated the item to 60 Sleeves now.

Quality of life enhancement

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

This is the missing part of the larger board that comes in the standard Scythe box (The reverse side of the standard board).

Although not required to play the game, it does make things less cluttered. As the hex spaces are quite a bit larger, pieces can easily fit into them, even when many are in the same space.
Also, this size of the hexes does become an issue if you also have the Wind Gambit expansion (flying ships). So if you are considering getting that, you will likely need it then.

Fast paced cooperative card game

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

This takes the standard trick-taking game (highest card played in the same suit or a trump card wins the hand) to another level.
Usually, these kinds of games are played solo or in pairs. With The Crew all the players are working together, which requires coordination. But this game also only allows limited information. This makes for a tense and fun experience.

This is easy to teach and offers a high level of replay. There are 50 different objectives but if you find one that's enjoyable, you can play that as many times as you like.

Highly recommend this whether you are an experienced card game player or a beginner.

Fun hybrid game

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

Although this looks like a miniatures battle game, it is actually an engine building economy game. The goal being getting the most money. However, there are also aspects of area control and conflict. This makes it a decent Euro game without it being dry. The setting is also pretty interesting, being in an alternate 1920s Europe after the First World War 1.

Since there aren't many luck elements, this requires some strategic thinking. Having to select a new action (moving, producing resources, improving military strength) each turn makes planning out a few moves key to getting an advantage.
The rules are reasonably straight forward overall but there are quite a lot to learn.

It plays reasonably well with 2 players but I think 3 or 4 is best. There is also a playable solo version.
Overall, really enjoy it.

Great expansion, finicky statue

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

The expansion adds some good difficulty and some fun interactions, especially when tackling the Tier 4 monster encounters. And prepare to die against the Gaping Dragon unless you have great rolls, as it is quite challenging!

However, the toughest part of the expansion is assembling the miniature. While the actual points of insertion are well defined, please don't forget to submerge the wings and claws in hot water for 30s before insertion or you *will* struggle.

Good luck!

My friends love for board games habe taken flight

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

I decided to introduce my friends to board game by introducing them to Wingspan. It has been a huge success. They love pairing up cards to make great combos and reading all the birdie stats on the cards.
I guess I'll have to get them some binoculars for christmas seeing as they really loved the bird theme so much they went out and bought a copy the next weekend and have not atopped playing it and introducing it to their friends.

Great game.

Dudes on maps in space!!

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

My gaming group really loves this game, you win through area control and gem collection. The deck building is very streamlined and it really forces you to think and plan your steps ahead. We really love the asymmetry of the factions and we cant praise the battle system enough, such a great design. The minis are large, and the component quality is top notch with an immersive and strong theme that underpins the game well. The game is both strategic and tactical at the same time. This wont be a game for everyone, but if the above mechanics interest you, then this is an excellent game!

Lorehold: Boros but Better

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

Osgir brings a freshness to Boros that has made me genuinely excited to play Boros in EDH, a rarity to be sure. Not to mention Artifacts, who doesn't love Artifacts!

The deck is suprisingly strong for a precon, with that said it still has much room for improvement. Fortunately the artifact theme provides an obvious upgrade path without locking you into a singular play style.

A fun precon with a lot of potential.
