Review – Armadora

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

Prelude A while back ago Blue Orange Games sent me some of their older titles to review along with a new one they were pitching. Armadora was one of those. It’s a little game where you’re trying to get the most gold by placing influence and walls around the various hoards on the board. There’s also advanced rules where the …

Review – Pixel Glory

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

Prelude Zafty Games had a small booth setup at PAX East 2016 with tons of copies of Pixel Glory stacked all over their table. The minimalist black box and game’s 8-bit art immediately drew me to the game, and I was lucky enough to get a copy for review not too long after the show. It’s a super simple game …

Review – Go Away Monster

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

Prelude Gamewright has released a new edition of their classic kid’s game, Go Away Monster. Originally printed in 1997, and again in 2003, 2005, and 2008, the game had previously looked pretty much the same up until this new release. The 2016 edition features a new box footprint, and brand new art to bring a bit more of a modern …

Review – Baba Yaga

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

Prelude I’ve always been a fan of Gamewright games, and their latest, Baba Yaga, doesn’t disappoint. It’s a great card game where you’re trying to get your hand value down to 4 or less. One you do you can call “Baba Yaga” to end the game and have everyone tally up their hands. The lowest value overall wins. It plays …

Review – Formula μ

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

I received a copy of Formula μ (Formula Micro) from Michael Groll’s Games when I had requested a review copy of Operation Dandelion. Originally I wasn’t planning on writing a review of the game, but I figured I might as well give it a shot since it was sitting on the shelf. I’m glad I did. Formula μ manages to …

Review – Tally Ho!

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

I’ve always enjoyed the Kosmos 2-player line. Classics like Odin’s Ravens, Hera and Zeus, Lost Cities, Blue Moon, etc… I was really excited when Thames and Kosmos wanted to send me a few of their latest 2-player games for 2016. One of these is a new edition of Tally Ho!, a game about hunters and wildlife. It’s a two player …

Review – 4 the Birds

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

I’m going to say, right off the bat, that I was skeptical about 4 the Birds when it first arrived on my doorstep. Just from reading the flavor text on the back of the box I though it may be a bit boring. I was wrong. That isn’t to say the game doesn’t have any issues, but the ones it …

Review – Three Cheers for Master

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

Atlas Games had a mountain of Three Cheers for Master boxes at their PAX East booth this year. It was pretty hard not to notice as you walked by. Everytime I walked by the booth there were demos of the game being run with people crowded around the table. I never really got near the table, but I was able …

Review – Emergents: Genesis

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

I first heard about Emergents: Genesis back in November of 2015 and was instantly interested in the game. Then, at PAX East this year, I finally had a chance to sit down and play the game. I also left with a copy to give it a proper review. Emergents is a comic book themed deck builder where 2-4 players get …

Review – Mega Man: The Board Game

Rob Kalajian review 7 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 …
