Pixel Tactics is a series of games that contain only fifty-two cards in each box. How much strategy and skill can there be in a game where each player only gets a twenty-five card deck and a reference card?
Trains are a popular subject for many games. Ticket to Ride is a very popular game, and Station Master is a personal favorite. With so many train games on the market, it can be hard to stand out. Patrick Nickell of Crash Games sent me a preview copy of Yardmaster, Steven Aramini’s first game so that I could see if this game can stand out in a crowd.
As someone who loves Fleet, whenever Ben and Matt put out a game, I’m curious to see what they’ve been up to. Eggs and Empires is up on Kickstarter now, and they were kind enough to send me a prototype copy to try the game out. Is this an egg-ceptional follow up to Fleet, or is it just one big yolk?
Chris Kirkman from Dice Hate Me Games recently did a contest for players to create games using 54 cards. Bryan Fischer, a friend of mine designed a game around making pie and Chris’ contest inspired him to re-think his design. Now Pie Factory is up on Kickstarter along with five other card games. Is Pie Factory worthy of a blue ribbon or is it bland?
