Rob Kalajian review, tabletop 1 Comment

Full A.E.G.I.S. Review I’ve been playing Zephyr Workshop’s A.E.G.I.S. in one form or another for a few years now, having gotten the first paper-based prototype of the game at my first PAX East somewhere around 2014-2015.

Greedy Kingdoms Review

Tim & Kayleigh Mierzejewski review, tabletop Leave a Comment

The Potion Review

Rob Kalajian review, tabletop Leave a Comment

Full The Potion Review Take a chance and toss your ingredients into The Potion, a game in a bottle from Foxmind. Players all have rare mushrooms, secret liquid vials, and poisonous beetles that they’re trying to get rid of and gain dominance over a potion that’s being created.
