Colosseum

Filed under: Boardgames No Responses

One thing I can unreservedly say about this game that is better than Princes of Florence is the inherent coolness of the theme and the components. Apart from Agricola, it’s been a while since we last played a good solid Euro game. The past month has been mostly filled with children’s games, party games and […]

On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness

Filed under: PC Games 3 Responses

The game uses 3D models to depict the world but switches to 2D comics whenever there is dialogue. I’m not a regular reader of Penny Arcade. The comics are too hit and miss for me and I often don’t get many of the things they reference. But whenever someone cross posts a strip to QT3, […]

Shadows over Camelot

Filed under: Boardgames No Responses

There’s a surprising amount of stuff in this game, including oversized cards for each player summarizing the rules and possible actions.

After many months of neglect, we recently played Agricola again with some friends of Chee Wee. It was notable not only because it was the first time we played the Family version of the game, without any of the Minor Improvement or Occupation cards, it was also the first time we played Agricola with the […]

Filed under: PC Games 2 Responses

Following our victory over the Guangxi Clique, we leave behind a sizable garrison both to guard the three new ports that we now control and the southern border with French-controlled Indochina. The remaining forces are sent to the north. The time has come for us to take the offensive against the Japanese. Confident of our […]

Cosmic Encounter

Filed under: Boardgames 2 Responses

The art for each of the aliens is the usual Fantasy Flight awesomeness, especially since there are so many races, but feel a little out place given the game’s actual rules. I wanted to play this one because it’s an old classic that I’d heard a lot about, especially since it was cited by Richard […]
