When I went to Origins, I was contacted by Jason Kotarski about a game that he and Philip duBarry were working on. He offered me a chance to play with a prototype if I’d give it a review, and I agreed. I’ve liked previous games by both designers, so let’s see what they can do with their combined efforts.
Before I looked at the Pixel Tactics series and what I think of the game play and latest version of the components. Now let’s sit down and take a look at the cards in Pixel Tactics 3 and what makes it different from the first two sets for the game.
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?
