Review – Mint Works

Rob Kalajian review Leave a Comment

Prelude Back in August, I had posted about the Mint Works Kickstarter. For just $10 I secured myself a copy of the game once it was released. Well, that time has come and gone and I recently received my copy of the game. Considering it’s such a short game, it didn’t take it long to hit the table since we …

Review – Batman: The Animated Series Dice Game

Rob Kalajian review Leave a Comment

Prelude Batman: The Animated series is the definitive Batman in my book. It aired when I was just 11 years old and it couldn’t have been any more perfect in my mind. Even going back and watching it as an adult with my kids, it’s a masterpiece. Recently Steve Jackson Games released Batman: The Animated Dice Game. Sure it’s going …

Review – Villages of Valeria

Rob Kalajian review Leave a Comment

Prelude I forgot where I heard about Villages of Valeria, but I can tell you I almost missed it. I seriously almost never knew it existed. I can tell you right now that would have been a damn shame. Villages of Valeria is set in the same world as Valeria: Card Kingdoms, but takes place just before the hordes of …

Review – Broken Egg Games’ Imperial Assault Tokens

Frank Grip review Leave a Comment

One great way to kick a game of Star Wars Imperial Assault or Star Wars: Destiny up a notch is through customization. It is truly awesome how something as small as a token or a door placed on the board can revolutionize your game’s aesthetics. Currently, there are a lot of great outfits with a lot of great custom pieces …

Review – ModMic 5

Rob Kalajian review Leave a Comment

I’m fairly new to the whole video/streaming world and up until recently, I’ve just been recording using my phone or computer’s built-in microphone. Obviously, this isn’t an ideal situation. I had been looking up microphones for a while, debating which one would be best for my needs when I received a press release from Antlion Audio. Antlion’s new ModMic, the …

Rob Kalajian review Leave a Comment

Prelude Ophidian first hit the scene over 10 years ago with Ophidian 2350, a CCG from Ophidian Games and Fleer. A few years back one Small Cave Games released a stand-alone, non-collectible version called Ophidian Wars. Now Hack & Slash games have created Ophidian 2360: Survival of the Fittest, a Expandable Card Game with an all-new look. 2360 is fully …

Review – The Lords of Rock

Rob Kalajian review Leave a Comment

Prelude The Gods of the universe are losing their power, some even fading away. A battle must take place over humanities souls but the gods know that war will lead to all their destruction. There’s only one solution. A battle of the bands. The Lords of Rock is a rock and roll concert of Godly proportions. The prize for the …

Review – [email protected]

Rob Kalajian review Leave a Comment

Prelude I grew up on ASCII dungeon crawls like Rogue, Hack, Ragnarok, ADOM, and more. While I still enjoy modern rogue-likes like Risk of Rain, Dungeons of Dreadmor, and Rogue Legacy, my excitement upon seeing [email protected] was palpable. Stormcloud Games has managed to take old-school ASCII adventure and turned it into something modern and fresh. I jumped at the opportunity …

Review – Element

Rob Kalajian review Leave a Comment

Prelude I was luck enough to receive a copy of Element before it’s actual release. You can see my unboxing of the game here. I sat down with both my 11-year-old and 6-year-old sons ti give it a whirl and see what the hype is all about. It wasn’t long before the night had gotten away from us and a …

Review – Siege

Rob Kalajian review Leave a Comment

Prelude To tell you the truth, I had never even heard about Siege until it showed up on my doorstep a few weeks ago. Apparently, AEG is aware that people may have missed out on this game with the craziness that is the holidays. Released in December of last year, Siege is a card-based strategy game of deduction for 2-6 …
