Tribes: Dawn of Humanity Review

Rob Kalajian review, tabletop Leave a Comment

Full Tribes: Dawn of Humanity Review I’m often leery of civilization games that say they play quickly. Tribes claims to cover 30,000 years of civilization in 45 minutes and that just seems sketchy. Does it make good on this monumental promise? Do you actually get the feel of a civilization building game is just 45 minutes? Yes and no. Either …

Skulk Hollow Review

Full Skulk Hollow Review Once, long ago, the Guardians helped to create and shape the world. Then, they fell into a deep slumber and the age of the animal clans began. Now, the animal clans are warring, wreaking havoc upon the land. The Guardians, feeling the disturbance, have awoken. Their dark and twisted forms monstrous in their rage. Will they …

Rob Kalajian review, tabletop Leave a Comment

Welcome to the first-ever A Few to Review, a series of reviews written by members of the Tabletop Writer’s Guild. Each month, several guild members select a game to play, write up their thoughts in 300-500 words, and one of those members hosts the review. This month’s review is Bombyx’s Catch the Moon, a dexterity game set in a poetic …

Letter Jam Review

Rob Kalajian review, tabletop Leave a Comment

Full Letter Jam Review Czech Games Edition‘s Letter Jam is a cooperative word game which right off the bat makes it seem like it’d be right up my alley. The reality, however, couldn’t be farther from the truth. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly where the game goes so horribly wrong for me, but it’s certainly a game I’m not likely …

Evil High Priest Review - Cover

Evil High Priest Review

Rob Kalajian review, tabletop Leave a Comment

Full Evil High Priest Review My only experience with Petersen Games is with Cthulhu Wars and their 5e RPG products, so I didn’t know what to expect from Evil High Priest other than a Lovecraftian theme. It was quite a shock to open the box and not be greeted by lovely miniatures, but wooden meeples and tons of cardboard instead! …

Monopoly Gamer: Sonic Review

Rob Kalajian review, tabletop Leave a Comment

Full Monopoly Gamer: Sonic Review It’s no secret that I really like the Monopoly Gamer line. Aimed at fans of video games, they take Monopoly and condense it down to a fast-paced, 45-minute game. There’s Monopoly Gamer: Mario, Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart, and Monopoly: Fortnite (technically a Gamer title.) Now Hasbro also has Monopoly Gamer: Sonic. For those who have …

Star Crossed Review

Rob Kalajian review, tabletop Leave a Comment

Full Star Crossed Review I’m fairly new to the world of single-session RPGs, but I’ve always been intrigued by them. Star Crossed is no exception! I first saw this title years ago while it was in early development, and have now gotten a chance to play the final product! With just the book, some pencils and paper, and a Jenga …

Play as the mind-addled ranger, Minsc, and his Miniature, Giant Space Hamster, Boo, or …

Goblin Slayer Review

Rob Kalajian review, tabletop 1 Comment

Full Goblin Slayer Review There’s this cave. Inside is something shiny. It’s probably worth a lot, or maybe it was stolen and needs returning. Either way, you’re going in to get it. The problem? This cave is loaded with goblins and probably has a troll in it too. They may be weak, but the sheer amount of them means you’re …

Dizzle Review

Rob Kalajian review, tabletop Leave a Comment

Full Dizzle Review Roll-and-write games are entering a renaissance period it seems and Stronghold Games has already released a few hits in the genre. Dizzle, their latest entry, is nothing more than a pad of level cards, dice, and markers, yet it manages to pack a healthy dose of fun as have previous roll-and-writes in the Stronghold lineup. With 4 …
