Rob Kalajian unboxing 0 Comments

I’ve already reviewed and unboxed Storyline: Fairy Tales. Now Asmodee has released Storyline: Scarytales just in time for Halloween. It’s the same game, just spookier. Similar to Fairy Tales you’re getting 2 tales and over 100 cards. As is expected, you can combine both games to make even crazier stories. I didn’t take as many shots of the game as …

I finally got some samples in of Hasbro’s new Beyblade Burst Beys. These are currently already out in Canada and will be in on US shelves in January of 2017. So far I like what I see with the exceptions of the launchers and stadiums. I’ll soon post some video of the Beys in action, but until there here’re some …

There’s a lot of excitement in our house today as we just received our copy of Magic the Gathering Arena of the Planeswalkers: Shadows of Innistrad. It’s a new base game, so it can be played without the original boxed set. The Battle for Zendikar expansion is fully compatible. There’s a lot to like in this box. Great miniatures, awesome …

I finally got my hands on a physical prototype of Flavor Factions’ Originz, and I couldn’t be more excited. Having played the game a fews times at both CT FIG and over Tabletop Simulator, it’s great to have a copy of my own to try out with my kids.

Aurora is a game about the evolution of a solar system that was entered into The Game Crafter’s Learning Games contest by Rampage Games. I got a chance to see it briefly at CT FIG, but now have my own copy to review and take some pictures of. Everything has a wonderful “space” feel, and it’s always great to see …

Yashima is another Greenbrier Games release I have in for review. I first saw it at PAX East, and was instantly drawn to it by it’s art style and amazing looking miniatures. The components are sparse, but top notch. The tiles are thick and sturdy, the miniatures of a high quality plastic, and the cards are nice and snappy. I’ve …

Grimslingers just arrived in the mail yesterday, and I just had to crack it open. Everything from the box to the cards is beautiful, and I can’t wait to get this one to the table! I love the fact that it can be played quickly in versus mode, or can be played as a longer, 4 session co-op story mode. …

Unboxing Wrath of Dragons

I first played Wrath of Dragons at PAX East this year. The giant fire-breathing dragon kind of caught my eye while at the Catalyst Game Labs booth, and I just had to request a demo. The game is a Resource Destruction game where you’re trying to destroy the most stuff by the end of 6 centuries. It’s a fairly standard …

Daniel Solis is an amazing game designer. I haven’t played a game of his that I didn’t like. A while ago Daniel had created a card game called Kigi, a beautiful game about painting the most lovely trees. It was self-published and sold through DriveThruCards. A while later Action Phase Games picked up the game, rethemed it, and had Daniel …
