It’s a game focused on strategy but comes packed with beautiful 3D components and amazing artwork that elevate what used to be a purely abstract game into the thematic masterpiece. A wonderful update to an excellent game. Here’s my Santorini Review. Play Roxley’s …

Roxley just sent me a copy of Santorini, a game I’ve been excitedly waiting for. It’s pretty awesome, but I’ll leave that for the review later this week. Until then I’ve snagged pics of all the amazing components that come with the game. Everything is top notch from the storybook to the 3D board to all the building pieces and …

It’s almost 2017 and soon A Pawn’s Perspective will be a year old. The site has come a long way since I first started it as an overflow of items that didn’t really fit on Purple Pawn. It’s grown by leaps and bounds, and I’m starting to feel like maybe using my own personal social accounts aren’t doing the content …
