The link in Paperclips to Strategy Gamer is not working, FYI.

Nice review, Nick : ) I really enjoyed the first CCN, both for its play and for its amusing/weirdness factor, and this looks like a great sequel. What kept it from being a 5-star game for you? You didn't really note any negatives in the review. I'm not suggesting it should be a 5-star (I haven't pla...

Great update Nick--thanks! I too have never found AR games appealing--if anything, it signals to me that the foundations of the gameplay aren't strong enough to carry the game by themselves, so the dev has added this gimmick to add interest from non-serious-gamers. And though everyone nods and agree...

Nice to see A Planet of Mine getting the editorial treatment (unless they let Joe do it) (kidding! kidding!). I'm looking forward to seeing what new content they're going to add. I really liked the game initially, but it got stale for me faster than I expected, honestly. I think it has a lot of pote...

I can second Nick's endorsement of Ticket to Ride First Journey--I've played the physical board game with kids, and they take to it quickly and like it for replays. Not sure how that enjoyment will translate to ios, though. Since this is a slimmer, lite post this week, I'll add that Choice of Games ...

Thanks for the roundup, Nick, as always. Warbands: Bushido looks promising, especially with its (surprising) absence of IAP. The lack of a campaign is the only thing keeping me from jumping on this right now. Are the cards and fighters that you acquire with the in-game currency randomized, or do you...

Great assessment, Matt. I think your conclusions about why the ladder has become so absurdly hard is dead-on. As more middle-of-the pack players realize this, I think HS will start losing its popularity. It may be pretty, but it just isn't fun. I dropped it months ago and was not trying for Legend b...

Anyone here that's been playing the new HS expansion care to offer an assessment? It's somewhat hard to find unbiased reviews of it on any HS sites....

Excellent review, Michael. I would like to be up for this kind of grueling experience, but that's not my thing. And the noted UI hurdles make me sure this one will not visit my ipad. Mad props to whomever wrote the article subheader; the "R'lyeh intense dungeon crawler" line made me happy....
