Kingdomino Duel Review

Rob Kalajian review, tabletop Leave a Comment

Full Kingdomino Duel Review Kingdomino is an amazing game. It’s colorful, approachable, super each to teach, and a whole lot of fun. Queendomino expanded on the excellence of the original by adding a bit more depth for gamers that were looking for a bit more. Kingdomino Duel boils the Spiel Des Jahres award winner down into a 2-player roll-and-write. Does …

Flick Wars Review

Full Flick Wars Review What would you get if you crossed Pitch Car with a Warhammer 40k? Flick Wars, by Breaking Games. Its large box contains a huge, neoprene mat, wooden terrain pieces, cards, and tons of wooden discs to flick around. Supporting 1-6 players, this game aims to bring a completely different type of strategy to miniatures wargaming. Flick …

Shobu Review

Rob Kalajian review, tabletop Leave a Comment

Full Shobu Review It’s quiet in the forest. The fresh scent of cut wood fills your nostrils as the babbling brook beside you fills your ears with melodious sounds. You’ve gathered a handful of rocks from the water and set your knife to 4 blocks of wood. It’s peaceful. Serene. You push your first stone and are well on your …

Slide Quest Review

Tim & Kayleigh Mierzejewski review, tabletop Leave a Comment

I recently got the chance to play the introductory quest of Slide Quest with my 5 year old daughter – check out this review/interview to see how she liked it! (Some of my thoughts are below the video, in boring old text form.) Slide Quest is an ingeniously simple game. You roll a knight around a board, maneuvering around obstacles …

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 …

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 …

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.

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

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! …
