Great game (but play with a cool head)

Reviewed by on

Snowblind is a great dice rolling, push your luck game where the aim is to get your team of intrepid explorers to the South Pole to plant your flag. Along the way you'll need manage your crew carefully by choosing dice from the action board, each one allowing a different action, like moving your Captain forward with his flag and some food or setting up a tent to protect yourself against exposure. After choosing and completing your action, you roll your dice to determine the Exposure. If you're alone and you roll a 4 or more, be prepared to be taken down by bad weather! If a crew mate becomes exhausted by the weather, you'll need another member to get to him with food in tow to revive him. Once the pack ice card is revealed, the final round is triggered after which you'll tally up your scores and see who wins.

This game is surprisingly tense and will make its way to your table often! There is a setup of a few minutes, but that flies by once you've played a few times. The components are sturdy and very well made, but don't be put off by how many little crates there are! A highly recommended locally produced game!

Absolute must have!

Reviewed by on

A firm favourite among my friends and I, this is a game that keeps you coming back again and again! What starts out as a co-operative game between friends quickly turns as one of you becomes the betrayer (don't worry you'll still be friends afterwards... it's just a game). Every game is different and it offers great replay-ability. I'd recommend this to any board game lover to add to their collection as well as anyone who likes to have fun!

Awesome board game

Really fun board game.

Was introduced to this game by a friend, and I laughed when he said it would be better than most household board games. Turned out to be one of the best board games I've played. I really recommend this board game if you meet up with friends regularly, it is very entertaining!

Fun game

Reviewed by on

This game is really fun, especially if everyone contributes to the storytelling part. The way that the cards somehow fit together to tell an absurd, dark and funny story is really entertaining. The plastic cards are also really cool. Just note that you might want good light for this game, as some of the text is really small and can sometimes be hard to read.

Surprisingly fun!

Reviewed by on

This is a really fun and light game. The artwork is amazing and the cards are sturdy. The only (slight) problem is that the icons on the cards are not intuitive, so you might often refer to the rules to see what they do. But other than that this is a great filler/starter game for such a small box.

For the love of all that is good in this world, buy this game. There is no maybe. One of the best board games in existence. Well sculpted figurines and good quality all round. If you are considering buying this do not second guess your purchase. Add to cart, pay, play! no regrets!

An amazingly fun game

Reviewed by on

It's something most boardgames boast of; no two games are exactly the same! With Betrayal, I find this more true than with most, as not only does the tile layout change with every playthrough, but there are several scenarios in the book, and i personally have not yet encountered the same scenario twice.
The basic premise is that you and a bunch of friends are trapped in a haunted mansion, except one of the friends is not who them seem, and will betray you even later in the game (some of the best fun comes from discovering who the betrayer as, as even they do not know until the second phase). I won't explain all the rules here (there are plenty of other resources for that), but I HIGHLY recommend checking this out if you like long boardgames with a spooky feel to them.

The 5-6 player extension provides a new layout for Catan that easily accomodates 5-6 players. The only problem I have with it is that it takes a while for you to have your turn again.

Cheap and effective

Reviewed by on

Worth the price, 100 sleeves for R25 isn't bad. I pretty much sleeved my entire collection of Magic the Gathering and Pokemon cards with these sleeves. Use these sleeves for collecting, not for playing. Great for protecting your cards, not so great to use them to play with as the cards will keep slipping off your deck.

...and if you don't, this game is still for you. Great game with amazing art. The replay value is really high, since each part of the game (heroes, villians, masterminds, schemes) have a number of options available. I've played this game a lot and still haven't used everything in the box.
