Faulty Item

Reviewed by on

From opening, the main component, namely the coop is faulty. Once you push it down it only lasts 5 - 6 seconds. This makes the game unplayable as you can only get 2 - 3 chicks on top before it pops, then the person has to take all those chicks back so the game will never end. From watching YouTube vids, the timer is supposed to last at least 1:20 to 2:00 minutes long.

I returned the item, weeks later I got a replacement. Again, the thing only lasts 6 - 12 seconds before popping up. Either they gave me the same faulty item or I got another faulty one from the supplier?? Not sure, but not happy

Beautiful dice. Really beautiful dice. Nicely lettered and inked dice. I was worried because of the intricacy of the design on the dice it might be shoddy, but they are genuinely nicely inked.

These had way more pearly sheen than I thought. They're beautifully coloured. The plastic is nearly marbled with a beautiful and subtle shine. The markings are clear and bold. Also these dice are a slight bit bigger than standard d6's.

Great value

Reviewed by on

Firstly, Star Wars Legion is awesome and the most effective way to start off is to get the core set (or two).
Compared to other miniature game starter sets, you really get your money's worth with this one. If you try to buy all the components included in the set individually, it will cost more than double the core set would (and you can't buy Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader separately).

Note that all the units contained in the core set is not enough for a full 800 point game of SW Legion but this is still a great product to get your collection started. I highly recommend buying two core sets which can bring you to the 800 point mark.

The miniatures are highly detailed and unpainted. There was one minor component missing from both core sets that I purchased (the right handlebar of the AT-RT was missing) but I followed the simple process of requesting the missing components from Asmodee and in less than a week my request was processed and the components were packed and sent by mail.

Also note the core set does not have enough dice. Although you can record your results and reroll the dice provided in the set, this gets frustrating very quickly and you will want to get additional dice through either the dice pack or another core set (as recommended above).

Good quality but optional

Reviewed by on

The product itself is of decent quality. It contains the exact same amount as the dice provided in the core set. Even when buying two core sets (which I highly recommend), you still do not have enough dice for all your units which will require the purchase of the dice pack.

This remains optional though. You can always record your previous rolls and reroll the dice you already own. It is therefore difficult to recommend or even personally justify this purchase considering the price, especially if you own more than one core set.

That being said, it is a nice to have and if you can afford it, buy two.

this game is played FAST - in a minute it's done!
my 6yo son loves playing this with me - yes it is a matching game with just 2 sets of cards, but it's the grabbing and seeing how many of the other player's cards you can grab that makes it so much fun

FFF - Fury, Frustration, Fantastic

Reviewed by on

I'll be honest - after setting everything up, reading all the seemingly complex rules/instructions and staring at the board, I scratched my head and almost packed everything up again. "How the heck do I even move in this game?"

After trying and failing to get into the swing of things, I DID pack the game up, but a while later I decided to watch a YouTube playthrough of it and thankfully so, because it all started to become clearer. I'm now enjoying it a lot!

Moral of the story is that you need to give this game a chance, because there's a 99% chance you'll want to bash your skull in at all the complexity and learning curve at first.

Tiny game, big experience

Reviewed by on

Mint Works is a worker-placement game all contained in a mint-tin sized container. The game is relatively simple to play, and handles from 1 to 4 players. Setup is quick and doesn't take up much space, and can easily be set up and played in a coffee shop. The game is also quick, and concludes within 20 minutes, although you can extend this a little by giving players a larger victory point goal. This is the 2nd edition of the game, and comes with the 6 x 5-mint tokens, something desperately missing from the first edition. In all, a brilliant game for the size and price!

Quick fun, with decent depth

Reviewed by on

Multiuniversum is driven by an interesting set of core mechanisms. Without venturing into too much detail, players draw a starting hand of three cards and the key factor is that these cards enable each player to do several things. Making the right choices is crucial. On the whole, players work in relative isolation, accumulating points and building both short and long term strategies. However, if you fail to keep a close eye on the unfolding plans of your rivals, they will steal a march on you and end the game while you are still assemblind your plans. To keep ahead demands getting the most out of your cards, which in turn requires medium to long term planning. This is the heart of Multiuniversum: farsighted, yet flexible planning, while monitoring your opponents. This is also where the game attains a decent level of depth despite being a light, quick game.

Fun for those who remember the series

Reviewed by on

If you grew up in the 80s, you'll likely remember the Thunderbirds show, with the puppets and the rockets and the dubious voice acting. The board game, which came to fruition via Kickstarter, is designed by "lord of cooperative gaming", Matt Leacock, who also designed the board-game darling "Pandemic". Thunderbirds is a cooperative game played on a world map, where you control the various Thunderbirds as you attempt to stop the Hood from wreaking havoc. The game pieces are nicely designed, although the sheet of stickers that you can put on the ships are really for those people who want to paint their minis. The game plays well, and is highly thematic. That said, if you've no concept of Thunderbirds or no love of the series, you're in for a poorer experience than someone who does.

Really solid set of dice, great quality, colour and pretty much exactly what I expected. Only reason I cannot give it 5/5 is because there was a dice missing. Not the end of the world though, solid product.
