Everything you need to know, nicely presented on a single page. Well, everything except how you got yourself into this horrible position.
"Pentaction" is an awkward mouthful of a title. Descriptive, though: the relations between the five mobile units are the heart of this game that plays like...

Gentrification comes to Barad-dûr.
Before I even get to The Sailor's Dream, let's take a moment to recap just how unabashedly biased I am towards Simogo. If you called 2013 "The Year of Simogo", it would require some weapons-grade pedantry to disagree with you: I gave...

One of the more interesting rotations in the game. If I were a better geek, I could make a clever reference to mathematical transformations here, and those few of you who got it would feel special.
Her knock said she expected to be welcome anywhere, she...

Simple, understated, classy--the standard 52-card deck is basically how I aim to dress.

Chester’s Minelab Excalibur II blipped a corker charm bracelet.
A slog. Hard-fought, with not a single soul pencilling 'enjoyable' in their Moleskines. Fingers raw and clawed, eyes red and patience tested. This is one digital D-Day veteran's account of Frontline: The Longest Day, fresh fare served...

Fighting under the stars
I'm starting to feel a bit spoiled. Seriously, what was the last major board game release that ended up a dud? It sure as hell isn't BattleLore: Command, the latest release from Fantasy Flight Games, which, despite a major omission, is still a...

Review: Stalag 17

04 Dec 2014 0

If you think of the jailbreak plan as an order in a restaurant, it's not hard to imagine a retheme to short-order cookery. I used to work for a short, tyrannical, yet very popular chef.
Stalag 17 is a tense game about escaping from a German POW...

'You'll see how they forget about these "Wolverines."'
You won't find too many wargame monikers quite as dull as "Wars and Battles". If French developers Kermorio ever tried their hand at baseball we'd get "Gloves and Caps" -- or maybe an FPS called "Persons and Shooting".
