Unboxing Overseers

Rob Kalajian unboxing 0 Comments

Thundergryph Games ran a really successful campaign with Overseers and I was delighted when the Deluxe edition of the game arrived on my doorstep last night. Not really wanting to wait, I dug right in and took some photos. Everything is quality, down to the plastic insert in the box that holds everything. The metal coin included is a great …

Unboxing Four ($)

Rob Kalajian unboxing 0 Comments

Four is a new, team-based card game by March Forth Games. It’s a chaotic game where teams of players ages 8+ can enjoy an easy-to-learn rule set and a quick 20 minute play time. March Forth sent me a copy to review so I figured I’d do a quick unboxing before I did so. There’s not much in the box …

Cryptozoic’s Attack on Titan Deckbuilding Game is hitting shelves soon, and the wildly popular anime’s license will no doubt move units off the shelves. I haven’t had a chance to play it yet but it’s one it’s one I’m looking forward too. I didn’t snap a pic of every card in the box, but these images should give you a …

Unboxing Yeti

Rob Kalajian unboxing 0 Comments

AEG is on a hot streak with games recently and Yeti doesn’t look to be an exception. Aimed at families, it has a 3D board that you build before you play and comes in at 20-40 minutes of game time. While I normally just take pictures of the components straight out of the box, I couldn’t help but put the …

Unboxing Avoid the Void

I’m a huge fan of Avoid the Void and was really bummed when the Kickstarter campaign for the game fell short. Thankfully http://www.geekfevergames.com/ didn’t give up, and crowdfunded the game through The Game Crafter. My copy finally arrived, and I couldn’t be happier. Now I can enjoy galaxy destroying fun with my kids! I always love to see how far …

Hex Casters is one of the first games released by Hasbro that was funded through Indiegogo. It’s a party game for 3-6 players where players are trying to hex each other and protect themselves from other players. Hexes are pretty crazy, as you can see in the cards below. I managed to get a picture of every card in the …

Previously I’ve unboxed1 and reviewed2 AEG’s Mystic Vale. Now I’ve gotten my hands on its first expansion, Vale of Magic. The expansion contains 54 advancement cards, 18 new vales, and the rulebook. I tried to get one of each new advancement type and vale in their respective pictures. Other than that it’s just the box and rulebook cover. The rulebook …

Unboxing Acquire

Rob Kalajian unboxing 0 Comments

Acquire has changed hands quite a bit in its history. It’s been in the hands of Hasbro since 1999 when they first published it under their newly-acquires (pun intended) Avalon Hill brand. Acquire has gone from a more functional to a more visually pleasing transition over the years, but the basic gameplay has stayed the same. Now Hasbro has a …

Unboxing Smiths of Winterforge

Rob Kalajian unboxing 0 Comments

Smiths of Winterforge is currently up for funding on Kickstarter. I’ll actually have a review of the game going up soon on Purple Pawn, most likely this Friday. The first thing I have to say, and what you’re about to see, is that this is one of the best prototypes I’ve ever received. While it’s not the final product, it …

Unboxing Storyline Scary Tales

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 …
