Where’s My Chainsaw? Game Review (prepublished version)

The world has gone to Hell in a handbasket and you are one of the “lucky” survivors. Now you get to spend your time fighting off cannibals, undead, and worse. Yes. Worse. It’s not all bad, though. OK. That’s a lie. It’s all bad. The best you can hope for is surviving just a bit longer than the rest, but even that doesn’t seem like such a great deal. Isn’t the Apocalypse great?

Dwarven Smithy Game Review (prepublished version)

A typical “fantasy dwarf” is a master craftsman, a highly skilled miner, a legendary drinker, and a tough-as-nails fighter. In this game, players will test their crafting and mining skills against other dwarves to determine who is truly the master of the forge. Drinking and fighting will, of course, soon follow. Continue reading

Inspiration Game Review (prepublished version)

The art of storytelling has been around for a very, very long time. As far back as when the human race was still living in caves and being hunted by big cats. We no longer have to hide in bushes and lurk in shadows to avoid man-eating felines, but we do continue to tell stories to both entertain and to educate. In this game, you will compete with others to tell the best story. The winner is the one who knows their audience best. Continue reading

Morels Game Review

Professor John Tyler Booner said, “The sudden appearance of mushrooms after a summer rain is one of the more impressive spectacles of the plant world.” Mushrooms look otherworldly and tend to grow in secret places. They can be used for food and have unique pharmaceutical properties. But they can also be deadly. In this game, you best know the difference between what tastes great and what will put you in the ground. Continue reading

Spoils of War Game Review

After a successful raid, the Viking leaders gather once more to divide the spoils of their conquest. The battles may be over, but not the war. While these brave warriors may have been friends in the field, they are now considerably less friendly at the table. Incredible riches will go to the warrior who has the sharpest mind, not sword. Continue reading

Emergence Game Review

The future is a perfect place where logic reigns supreme and an artificial intelligence dominates all. Except for a pesky group of humans, this new utopia would be complete. It has been decided that the human element must be eliminated once and for all, but there is a problem. Knowledge is power and that power is freely available to the humans if they start working together. This does not compute. Continue reading

Sagrada Game Review

The Sagrada Família is a large Roman Catholic church is Spain that began construction in 1882. To date, it’s not yet complete and for good reason.

Heroes & Tricks Game Review

There is no “trick” to being a hero. All one must do is sacrifice, put others first, and act in a way that exemplifies selflessness at the cost of everything that one could possibly hold most dear. Simple, right? No, of course not. That is why we hold those who are heroes in such high regard. In this game, you must attempt to live up to the standards of a hero in hopes of winning their favor. Doing so is mostly guesswork. Continue reading
