Review: Great Western Trail

Saturday, May 6th, 2017

Hoo baby! The profoundly beefy 2016 game of Great Western Trail is finally back in stock the world over. We’ve had ample time to test its systems, prodding its many rules from every conceivable angle, and today want to tell you that it lives up to the hype. And thank goodness for that! When was the last time your evenings contained a dose of cowboy magic? It was too long, wasn’t it?

Review: Mythos Tales

Monday, April 10th, 2017

It looks like Watson & Holmes isn’t the only game that wants to offer something different from Consulting Detective! Introducing Mythos Tales, a game of solving occult mysteries where if you’re not careful, you might become a victim yourself. Will Paul Dean crack the case of whether Mythos Tales is a worthy consumer product, or will this be his final review? We wish him luck.

Review: Flamme Rouge

Friday, March 24th, 2017

Who among us can claim that they didn’t once dream of growing up to be a master of bicycles? Those debonair doctors of velocity. The zeal on wheels. I have good news, friends. It turns out that in the game of Flamme Rouge (French for “Red Flam”) you can become a cycleman for no less than 30 to 45 minutes at a time. Clearly we had to give it the full review treatment, and you know...

Review: Honshu

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Quinns: Alright. You see Honshu, pictured above? You’re looking at one of the most desirable boxes on the planet. The best thing to come out of Finland since karjalanpiirakat, Honshu made a name for itself during the American convention circuit last year. Contained in its small, peach-tone box are some cards and cubes, and contained within them is a simple card game, and contained within that are...

Review: Troyes

Friday, January 13th, 2017

To usher in 2017 as a year of good fortune, we’re trying all sorts of superstitions. Paul wrote “FLUXX” on a bit of wood and threw it in a river, while Matt and Quinns have chosen a classic for their first review. Troyes is a beloved 2010 game that’s enjoying a well-deserved restocking this month. But last year we were spoiled for choice when it came to lightweight...

Double Review: Blood Bowl and Guild Ball

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

Eric Tonjes, our esteemed miniatures game correspondent, has returned and the CROWDS HAVE GONE WILD! Vendors are sobbing into their hot dogs! Babies are being tossed in the air by baby-tossing machines! Everybody, let the man speak… Eric: Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, we’re here to talk about sports! Sports are perhaps the ur-games. Probably organizing alongside early...

Review: Vinhos Deluxe Edition

Friday, November 18th, 2016

Quinns: Alright ladies and gents. Today we’re tackling a box of unparallelled size and charisma. The publishers tell me that there are less than 3500 copies of Vinhos Deluxe Edition (the Kickstarted re-imaging of 2010 wine-making classic Vinhos) left, and I want to make sure that you guys have the chance to buy one. It takes a lot to excite me these days, but Vinhos Deluxe Edition managed it.

Review: Alchemists

Friday, November 4th, 2016

Quinns: Paul, I did a crime. Paul: Quinns, it’s okay. You can confess and be absolved. Our world is one that still has room for forgiveness. Come and tell- Quinns: I might have accidentally fed my student a pint of poison. Paul: Ah. It’s all right. You’re not the first person- Quinns: Also I misled an adventurer and sold them a flask of soup instead of a healing potion, then I published an...

Review: Sushi Go Party!

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Quinns: Ever since I first squeaked about Sushi Go in my 2015 Corner Awards (and dust off your tux, because I’ll be publishing the 2016 Corner Awards any week now) this little game has become loved by my friends. Throughout this year, at the end of a game night when everyone has the happy-sleepy feeling that comes from digesting two drinks and a big game, and I can’t be bothered teaching Mundus...

SU&SD Play… Infinity!

Friday, July 22nd, 2016

We delight in throwing curveballs, so here’s a video you’d never have expected. A fat Let’s Play of fantastic miniatures game Infinity, with scenery provided by the excellent people at Battle Systems! The truth is that ever since our spirited review of this game last year, Matt and Quinns have been collecting Infinity together with a few of their friends, and anything...
