Review – Tally Ho!

Rob Kalajian review Leave a Comment

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 Leave a Comment

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 Leave a Comment

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 Leave a Comment

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 2 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

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 Leave a Comment

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 Leave a Comment

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 Leave a Comment

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 Leave a Comment

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 …
