I’m a big fan of roll and write games. They’re light, quick, and offer a lot of options to players. Flip and draw games are similar, using cards instead of dice. Does Cartographers stand out on the sprawling field of games, or does it simply blend into a fold and disappear?
Incoming Transmission is up on Kickstarter for another round of backing, trying to take last year’s successfully funded game and make it bigger and better. The combination of hidden intention, light programmatic movement, and cooperative goals makes for a unique experience. Let’s see if it has the lasting power to reach out to the stars or is just some local broadcast.
With all of the games that came out at Gen Con, sometimes the simpler ones are easier to get to the table. Museum Heist has a very easy to learn rule set. But simple rule sets sometimes result in simple games that aren’t interesting. Should you Van Gogh and get this one or is it not worth the Monet?
I have recently reviewed two somewhat obscure miniature holders, Mini Grips and The Hobby Holder, but this time I’m reviewing what has quickly become one of the most recognizable and preferred miniature holders on the market: The Rathcore.
I’ve been painting a lot of miniatures lately and throughout the process I’ve been testing several different grips and stands for making the job easier and more efficient. Last time I reviewed Mini Grips from Death Ray Designs, but today I’m reviewing a more all-in-one option: The Hobby Holder. Only recently a Kickstarter, The Hobby Holder has started to penetrate the market with its smart and customizable design.
As someone with a few too many games, I know that I play a lot of weird stuff. I have games about battling goats, running a power company, and climbing mountains. But there’s a game in my collection that seems to surprise other gamers – Monopoly. Now, I’m not saying it’s perfect, but there’s a good chance the game you’d play today isn’t quite what you’d expect.
