IELLO is known for publishing quality games, and Arena for the Gods is no exception. Not only is the boxed backed full of cardboard, dice, counters, and cards, but it also comes with a removeable bowl tucked into the insert that can be used to store tokens while playing. There’s also a King of Tokyo card tossed into the card …

New from Rather Dashing Games, Hafid’s Grand Bazaar has players negotiating on all sorts of goods in hopes to have the highest value at the end of the game. I haven’t really even dug into the game much yet, but figured it was as good as any to get back into the swing of unboxing photos! Also, trying something new …

Rob Kalajian unboxing 0 Comments

Cheapass Games recently sent me two full Tak travel sets to take on Scouting trips since I’ve gotten the boys hooked on the game. A travel set is comprised of a Tavern Set combined with a Cloth Board. It’s a surprisingly small package, and an excellent value at a total of $34. You can actually go even $3 cheaper by …

Anachrony had a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign and is finally available for retail sale. The game comes in a huge box weighing in at a total of 10 pounds, all cardboard.

I’d been eagerly awaiting getting my hands on a copy of Game Salute’s Planetarium for some time now. Thankfully I was able to take one home with me from PAX East!

I’ve been eagerly awaiting a copy of MoonQuake Escape since I first saw the game at PAX East last year. The combination of colorful art, awesome board mechanic, and bluffing had me instantly hooked. At PAX East this year designer Jeff Johnston was able to send me home with a copy, and I was super excited to break it out …

Rob Kalajian unboxing 0 Comments

King of Tokyo is a family favorite. I’ve already taken a look at the new edition of the game, and now I have the Power Up! expansion and the first Monster Pack, Cthulhu. The Power Up! expansion is pretty much the same as the original, just updated for the new artwork and monsters that come in the base game. Cthulhu …

Unboxing Salt Lands

Rob Kalajian unboxing 0 Comments

I fell in love with Antler Games’ Salt Lands the first time I laid eyes on the box. It’s strikingly minimal, with wonderful character art. Inside all the components follow suit with a heavy post-apocalyptic feel that still plays on muted colors and excellent graphic design. I haven’t had a chance to get it to the table yet, but it …

Unboxing Meduris: Call of the Gods

Rob Kalajian unboxing 0 Comments

When I think of HABA I think of yellow-boxed, family friendly games. Games that are easy to learn, play in minutes, and that tend to cater to a younger audience. Meduris turned that idea on its head. Here’s a more traditional Euro-style game for an older audience that takes over an hour to play. I’m excited! Meduris contains a bunch …
