I love Lay Waste Games’ Dragoon. I love the design. I love the metal pieces. I love the gameplay. I also love that there’s an expansion ready to go for the game that just needs to be funded once the Kickstarter campaign for it launches. Dragoon: The Rogue and Barbarian Expansion adds two new playable characters to the game, adding …

I have fond memories of watching Bill & Ted’s excellent adventure when I was 8. Their antics have stuck with me all the way to adulthood, and I’m still a fan to this day. Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K, and this time it’s an excellent Bill & Ted board game by Steve Jackson Games. It arrived last week …

You may remember quite some time ago I backed Fallen Angel on Kickstarter. My copy arrived a few weeks ago and I had meant to posts some pictures, but there was a small problem.

Readers of both this site and Purple Pawn probably know that my family is a huge fan of Peaceable Kingdom games, so when they approached me asking if I wanted to review their new title from Matt Leacock, Mole Rats in Space, I couldn’t have give them a more enthusiastic “Yes.” The game arrived late last week and we’ve already …

The Pokémon Company recently sent me some cards from the new Sun & Moon set: 1 of each of the three new Theme Decks and 4 booster packs.

Steve Jackson’s OGRE is a classic wargame that has stood the test of time. There’s been a few modern releases, OGRE Pocket Edition which was a faithful reproduction of the original, and OGRE Designer’s Edition, a recording breaking Kickstarter release that was massive in scale.

I had only recently heard about Villages of Valeria and reached out to Daily Magic Games with an inquiry to review the game. A few days later the game showed up at my doorstep and now I can provide you fine folks with some pictures of what comes in the box. I’m hoping to get a chance to play the …

Unboxing Element

I just received my copy of Element from Rather Dashing Games over the weekend and I’ve been dying for a chance to sit down and take some pictures of it. While there’s not much in the box, what is in there looks great. The sage’s have a really nice feel, similar to the pawns in Onitama. The embroidered bag was …

Beyblade Burst is finally showing up on store shelves in the US allowing fans in the states to finally snag these awesome Beys at reasonable prices. I was able to get my hands on some more of Hasbro’s releases, and I’m still pretty impressed. Stadiums are still a disappointment, but I didn’t expect Hasbro to produce any of quality like …
