Champions of Midgard didn’t exactly get our blood boiling with berserker rage.  Fundamentally it’s a version of Lords of Waterdeep that sacrifices the nuance and intricacy of an evolving cityscape for the uncertainty of dice rolls.    It’s competent but there are so many excellent worker placement games out there that...

What’s your favourite way to fail to carry out a plan in a board game?

For me, I prefer it when my failure is something inherent in my inability – that the low-grade incompetence that infects every facet of my life can be blamed for the inevitable shellacking I’m about to...

I know it looks like it, but this isn’t a top ten list.   Yes, it’s a list.  Yes it contains ten(ish) games.  Yes it’s in the template that I’ve used for previous top tens on the site.   But there’s an important reason why this doesn’t count as a top ten...

Railroad Ink is a game that is made up compelling parts, but it doesn’t cohere together in a way that made it feel particularly impactful to me.   We gave it three stars in our review – I don’t begrudge anyone’s affection for it but I’m never going to be able...

I haven’t really sat down with a roll and write game since Ganz Schon Clever and that was perhaps out of self-preservation.   I feel like that game came close to capturing my soul like a cursed amulet in a D&D campaign.   I only escaped with my essence intact by burying the...

Introduction I know, I know – I said I was going to shut up about ethics for a good long while after I published our hobbyist media code of conduct. To be fair, I said that completely unprepared for what was going to happen a mere week or so later....

Pit isn’t so much a game as it is an excuse for people to get together and have a good ol’ shout.   Sometimes that’s all that’s need to have fun – to provide people a reason to do something they can’t normally do in real life and just pretend there’s...

Continuing our occasional series of ‘games from ancient antiquity that still deserve some attention in the modern era’, let’s talk about Pit!   This is a game that was first released in 1903.  Even now it’s probably the single most efficient engine for taking a game group from quiet contemplation into...
