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! …

Monopoly Gamer: Sonic Review

Rob Kalajian review, tabletop Leave a Comment

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 …
