One of my favorite things about board games are the discussions after the game is put away. You talk about strategies, why you enjoyed the game, what you didn’t like, and all those fun little details that don’t generally make it into a review. I’ve decided to fix that with First Impressions!
I’ve really been enjoying solitaire games lately, and I’ve always enjoyed the way that Button Shy Games creates big ideas in tiny packages. They create wallet games, usually just 18 cards, but the gameplay can be very impressive. Does Twin Stars meet expectations or does it end up in a black hole?
Math Trades are intimidating to anyone who hasn’t done one before. There’s a ton of games to look at, many things to consider, and so much information that people can get overwhelmed very easily. As someone who’s done a number of Math Trades in the past, I’m here to help make things a bit clearer.
It’s almost convention season, which means Origins 2017 is just around the corner. With it being a measly two hours away, Origins was my first real gaming convention and one I’ve always enjoyed. BoardGameGeek has their preview up, so it’s time to look at what games are catching my eye.
