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

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

In this game, you will build your own warrior and strive to perfect the art of war. Continue reading

In this game, each player will be taking on the role of a mouse who is looking for adventure and will ultimately find danger. At the end of the journey lies the greatest treasure a mouse could hope for and a dragon. Will you risk it all to become a mouse hero? Continue reading

Hoard Game Review

Of all the ways to make a quick coin or two, stealing from a dragon is not considered “smart”. But big risks mean big rewards and nothing is more profitable or dangerous than stealing for a gold-loving dragon. You and a number of other thieves have wandered into the dragon’s lair to take its loot. Little did you know that the dragon you are stealing from is still at home. Continue reading

5-Minute Dungeon Game Review (prepublished version)

They say that the longest a hero can hope to survive in a dungeon is 5 minutes. That’s not very long, but you and a group of your heroic friends have devised a plan. You’ll jump in the dungeon, explore, and defeat the boss monster in less than 5 minutes! Some say you are crazy and they may be right, but one thing is for certain. If you are going to beat the odds, you best be quick about it. Continue reading

Knowledge Game Review (prepublished version)

Some believe that the power of mages comes from an otherworldly place. This is only partially true. What makes a mage a mage is not the fireballs they throw in the air or the conjuring tricks. No. Knowledge of the arcane and what it’s capable of is what makes a true wielder of magic powerful. In this game, you will seek knowledge to crush your foes before they crush you. Continue reading

Munchkin Gloom Game Review

Some believe that the more you suffer in this world, the more deserving you are of a happier afterlife. That is to say, pain now equals gain later. If such is the case (and I’m not suggesting it is), then the characters in this game will certainly find the Great Hereafter to be filled with uncountable pleasures and delights. Prepare to suffer and be happy about it. Continue reading
