Review: Kahuna

06 Feb 2014 0
  • iOS

If you're going to paste a theme onto your game, you could do worse than a tropical Pacific archipelago.
Kahuna was a well-received 1998 Günter Cornett board game with about the loveliest, gentlest theme available: building bridges between tropical islands.

Review: Outpost Luna

04 Feb 2014 0
  • iOS

There are eight-million stories in the lunar city. This will be one of them.
If Outpost Luna was a physical board game, instead of an original digital one, I would expect the box cover to have a glowering European noble staring at me, like so many...

Well, that was one hell of a Super Bowl party. Yep. We should leave before the authorities arrive.
Baldur's Gate II has returned from the year 2000, popped out of a slightly sinister time capsule and magically conjuring itself onto your iPad (after you've expelliarmus'd a couple...

Review: Road of Kings

30 Jan 2014 0
  • iOS

Review

The parallels to Austin Powers are plentiful.
Death Off the Cuff has a delightful setting: the climactic scene from so many mysteries, with the suspects gathered around the triumphant detective, but with the brilliant inspector clueless about the case.

Review: Dungeonism

21 Jan 2014 0
  • iOS

As the bloodthirsty monsters closed in on all sides, Quincy found the resemblance to kindergarten oddly comforting.
The blood of goblins and fell warriors drips from my blade. I have my sword at my side, my bow on my back and the primal forces of magic...

Review: Archangel

  • iOS

"Yeah, you can still pet the rabbits guys. Just, *sniff* just don't turn around..."
There's a hasty, poorly-reasoned argument to be made that we're all just trying to be gods when we play games. Gods as fathers, mothers, masters, lawmakers, lawbreakers—all-powerful, all-knowledgeable and all-important, essentially.

Review: Suburbia

16 Jan 2014 0
  • iOS

The district solved their problem by privatizing school transportation: now all the complaints from irate parents go to someone else.
Suburbia is exactly the sort of board game that I dream of having converted to iOS: it's very well-regarded among frequent boardgamers and employs several mechanics...

I hear you, brother.
Ugh, it's time to fire up Star Trek: Trexels again. There's the push notification on my iPad, alerting me that Ensign Solomon wants my attention in the Hydroponics Lab. Beam me up the hell up I guess.
