  • CASTLE DICE LOGO (WEB ONLY) Castle Dice best fantasy builder There are so many really good things about Castle Dice that is hard to imagine that this won't be another huge hit to come from Kickstarter.

  • Stones of Fate is fun, innovative challenge Sometimes it is possible to tell you come upon a special game simply by looking at the components and reading the rules. Stones of Fate, from Cosmic Wombat Games, is just such an entity. It is in its final few days as a Kickstarter item. I had a chan

  • Tsuro of the Seas game box Tsuro is twice the fun from Calliope Games If I did a list of the most under-appreciated board games (and don't tempt me), both Tsuro games would be on that list. I have Tsuro: The Game of the Path for a long while. It was first released by WizKids and a bought a copy then. It is now publishe

  • Awesome Level 9000 box New expansions bring more variety to great games Quite some time ago, board games came out, were played until they got stale and never changed or were altered in any way. There are numerous examples of this: Monopoly, Sorry, Life, Yahtzee and Scrabble to name but a few. That was then, this is now.

    Ticket to Ride, designed by Alan R. Moon and published by Days of Wonder, has long been considered as one of the best gateway games of all time.

  • box cover.jpg Trick taking with a few twists

    There often isn’t much of anything new to the trick-taking genre of card games other than different goals and a variety of card appearances.

    That isn’t the case with Those Pesky Garden Gnomes from Rio Grande Games. The game was authored by JonMichael Rasmus, John Sams and Sean Weitner. The game is for three to five players 13 years of age and up and a typical game will likely take between 30 and 60 minutes.

  • box.png Only the foolish may apply

    For a simple to play game, Gauntlet of Fools is the most innovative and strategic games released this entire year.

    Plus, there are more high quality bits in this game than any I know in this price range (less than $30 when offered as a kickstarter project).

  • pic1259498_lg.jpg Milestones an uneasy tweener

    It is extremely rare for a new game to appear to great critical reception and for me to not get what all of the fuss is about. Unfortunate this is exactly what has happened with Milestones, a new offering from Stronghold Games.
