This is the continuing story of four heroes in the Star Wars universe. They started at Hoth with a depressing defeat (check what happened here) first time out. Now they are rushing out for a side mission. Read about their adventures after the jump!
Quick question: are reviews mandatory for board game websites?
I say this because that is what everyone seems to do. Some websites only do reviews and consider that adequate content. Is that all that people want?
I got more to say about this after the jump, of course…
I’m not exclusively a board gamer; I enjoy video games as well. One of my favorite series released was the Dead Space series. Short version of the series: an Engineer gets caught up in the middle of a cult that inadvertently(?) worships a plague that creates monstrosities out of dead people, all while in space. If you couldn’t guess, it was a horror/action title with you trying to survive against all odds.
The video game series has long been dead but it seems like a board game is on the way that scratches that itch…
Do you like Teamwork? Do you like Deception? Well it is right there in the title of Emergence, so you know what you are in store for. I recently got this game to the table and now it is time to talk about it.
Assimilation is mandatory after the jump…
Another investigation is afoot! The fourth Mythos Tale was streamed last week and now available for you to join in on the mystery. Once again, this is the whole case and does include spoilers.
Hit the jump for the stream, and map to follow along.
Time to open another game box! This time it is a fun little dexterity game called Rhino Hero. You actually get to bend the cards in this game! Can you handle that?
Hit the jump for the video!
It is time for the third investigation from Mythos Tales, The King Cometh. Two people in our detective guild were sick so we had to persevere in this tough case without them. Needless to say SPOILERS but hit the jump to watch the stream from the other night as well as see the map.
Fantasy Flight Games has reminded me why I don’t buy inserts for my board games. Making custom ones with foamcore is a different story but that takes so much time to do. But here comes Zenbins with a really neat, easy to use insert to present everything perfectly and fights nicely and now it is ruined!
Now it is all for loss, hit the jump to see why.
Here we are, in 2017, talking about a board game being brought to life from out past; 1982 to be exact. USAopoly’s Project Raygun has teamed up with MondoTees to release The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31, a game based on the classic horror film, The Thing. Almost seems out of no where if it wasn’t for the one tease they did awhile back about this becoming a thing.
But…should I be excited? Should I buy this thing?
This was a surprise for me. On an online store, lo & behold there’s another expansion for Room 25! We played it on one of our recent LivePlays but this adds more game modes and an obnoxiously big box/instructions. Hit the jump to check it out!
Time to unbox the Room!
