Review – Mega Man: The Board Game

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

I love Mega Man. I grew up with Mega Man games, starting on the NES and playing them in all their sequels, spin-offs, and remakes throughout the years on various systems. As a kid I would put on my dad’s motorcycle helmet and run around pretending to be the Blue Bomber, stopping evil Robot Masters from helping Dr. Wily take …

Review – Attila

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

Attila is a 2-player strategy game from Blue Orange Games where players are try to force their opponent into spaces on the board where they can’t make a move. The two small game boards and two large game boards can be combined in any manner to create the play space. Each turn a player moves one of their three tokens …

Review – Light of Dragons

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

With the Kickstarter for Roots of Mali, SunCoreGames’ new base set, hitting tomorrow I figured I’d get my review of last year’s Light of Dragons up. Light of Dragons and Roots of Mali are both the same game, just with different tribes. The tribes in both games have different spells and innate powers, making them play completely differently. Both games …

Review – Odd World

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

Odd World is a new release from FoxMind, developed by Jack Degnan. It’s a small, inexpensive card game with easy-to-learn rules, but with a little bit more than you’d expect from a kids’ title like this. The goal of the game is simple: have the most points when the cards run out. Look a little deeper and you’ll see there’s …

Review – VA-11 Hall-A

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

To be honest, I almost passed on the opportunity to review VA-11 Hall-A – Cyberpunk Bartender Action, a new game by Sukeban Games. Something about the logo caught my eye, and a quick lookup of the game had me hooked at the music. After that, I figured it couldn’t hurt to request a review code and give the game a …

Review – Encounters! Bravest Warriors

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

I actually played Encounters! Bravest Warriors for the first time during PAX East 2015. It’s by new means “new”, but Catalyst sent me both decks to get a better look at along with some of their newest stuff after this year’s PAX East. The game is based off the popular Cartoon Hangover show, Bravest Warriors. It’s by the same guy …

Review – Haiku Warrior

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

Some may know Jason Anarchy as the designer of Drinking Quest the card-based, drinking RPG. Jason has a new game, Haiku Warrior, that’s similar, but much more subdued. It can be played solo, or up to four players. The cards still drive the adventure, and every card carries a haiku. Jason told me at PAX East that he wanted to …

Review – Hex Shards of Fate

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

Another free-to-play, digital CCG, Hex: Shards of Fate attempts to combine CCGs with MMOs. Players navigate through the world and narrative battling anything that stands in their way. It’s very familiar to veteran CCG players, using gems as energy to cast cards. Each gem adds to your total mana count, but each color adds to your color level. This means …

Review – Cthulhu Realms

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

A few days ago White Wizard Games provided me with a review code for the Android version of Cthulhu Realms, the Lovecraftian re-theme of Star Realms. Eager to give the game a shot, I immediately downloaded the game and dug in. If you’ve played Star Realms, there’s nothing really new here gameplay wise, yet the amount of detail put into …

Review – New BCW Products

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

Every once and a while BCW shoots me some samples of their new products to take a look at. It’s nice, seeing as I’m a huge fan of their line of stuff, and we can always use some new deck boxes, card protectors, and folios in the house. This time around they sent me a deck box filled with 80 …
