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?

Loud About Game Review

American columnist, Franklin Pierce Adams, said: “Nothing is more responsible for the good old days than a bad memory.” Memory is a funny thing. We think we remember things exactly as they are, but time erodes the details, and new life experiences fill in the gaps making a single memory a composite of memories and assumptions. In this game, memory is key to victory, but you’ll be hard-pressed to remember that when your’e in the heat of gameplay. 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

Cultists and Cthulhu Game Review

Men foolishly believe they can summon ancient gods and chain them to their will. The very thought is insane! Luckily, insanity is a major component of most cults. Sounds bad, but cults have incredible benefits and an outstanding 401k. Too bad no one ever has a chance to use them. Most end up being eaten or worse. Yes, there are worse things than being eaten alive. Continue reading

Creepiest Pet Shop Game Review

Owning a pet is a big responsibility unless that pet is a Hermit Crab. In which case, there isn’t much to do with it. But for most pets, the owner must take on the responsibilities of care and feeding. Depending on the pet, that’s a big or little job. The same applies to monsters who want to adopt their own pet to love. Yes, even monsters want a puppy with four heads of their own. Maybe you can help them find their perfect adorable companion. Continue reading

Halloweeja Game Review

Ouija boards, also known as “Spirit boards”, are believed by some to be a tool to communicate with the dead. Some also believe that the Ouija is capable of opening up doors that should not be approached. Regardless of your personal belief, one thing is for certain. Ouija boards continue to be popular in our culture, be it in movies, stories, or sleepovers. In this game, you’ll make use of a Ouija board to learn secrets and, if played with the right people, have fun. Continue reading

Cops and Robbers Game Review

Be it cops and robbers, dogs and cats, or even Decepticon and Autobots, opposites not only tend to attract, but also repel. In this game, one player will take on the role of the police force protecting a small town. The other player will take on the criminal element who is on the look out to steal some loot. It’s a game of cat and mouse (oh, there’s another) with lots of cash and jail time up for grabs. Continue reading

Mr. Game! Game Review

For every rule book there is a Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) sheet. For every typo on a card there is an errata list. Mistakes are made and not every corner can be covered. Game designers go out of their way to ensure that their game has rules that can be followed and understood. Well, not every game designer. This game, for example, was purposely left with holes. Continue reading

Fisticuffs! Game Review

There once was a time where gentlemen fought bravely with clenched fists and menacing bravado. Men were manly and mustaches were large. Go back in time and enter the ring as a pugilistic warrior, making a name for yourself and your fists of furry. But be warned. Once a brawls starts, it takes on a life of its own. Prepare yourself and put up your dukes! Continue reading

Fart Juice Game Review (prepublished version)

When gas escapes via the exit found on one’s posterior, many refer to it as a “fart”. This escape of bodily gas can be very large in volume and have a strong odoriferous characteristic. In most civilized societies, one excuses themselves or apologizes for “breaking wind”. Kids, on the other hand, find it terribly funny and fart as loudly as possible. This is why I avoid Chuck E. Cheese’s. Continue reading
