Smash Up: The Bigger Geekier Box Expansion Review

English writer, H.G. Wells, said “The crisis of today is the joke of tomorrow.” For many lovers of board games who have many titles on their multiple shelves (me included), the ongoing crisis is storage. Individual games, no problem. Games with expansions? Many expansions? How the heck do we keep the core game and its expansions in one place? AEG, the publishers of Smash Up, have a BIG solution.

The Curse of Misfortune Lane Game Review (prepublished version)

Every 13th of Friday, a curse is let loose that brings nightmares to all who live on Misfortune Lane. No more. You and your friends at school have decided to break this curse. But being a kid that no adults listen to, what can you do? Not much, perhaps, and the monster in the shadows is counting on it! Continue reading

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? Continue reading

The Road to Ruin Game Review

Whatever caused the dead to rise and hunt the living swept over the world like a prairie fire.

The alternative is not pleasant. Continue reading

The Last Zombie

After the zombie invasion, humanity had a pickle of a problem. Zombies are really hard to destroy, making it necessary to keep them all on a remote island in order to keep everyone safe. From time to time, teenagers and thrill seekers would travel to the island, jump the fences, avoid the security guards, and drop into the zombie pits. Once there, they would play a game… Continue reading

Host Game Review

Dear lord, Ed Wood was right. Aliens have come to our planet to enslave Earth with the help of zombies that are very slowly chasing down the uninfected humans. You are part of an elite force of experts tasked to defeat the aliens and rid humanity of the undead. You boldly accept your mission, but unknown to your fellow experts, you have a private mission of your own. Meanwhile, humanity is either being probed, eaten, or enslaved. Probably all three. Continue reading

Dead Panic Game Review

You and a few others have managed to make it out of suburbia and into the countryside. The population is less dense here, but there’s still danger. Just because you don’t see zombies doesn’t mean they aren’t lurking behind trees or rocks. You know a place where you can regroup and restock. It belonged to a friend – now dead – who loved to hunt. You’re sure to find supplies there. You pray you don’t find anything else…or anything finds you. Continue reading

But your luck has officially run out and you now find yourself surrounded. Taking a deep breath, you tell yourself you can survive this if you just keep your cool. Of course, it would help if you had more ammo, but let’s try to stay positive here. Continue reading

Re: Your Brains Game Review

It’s the end of the world. Ironically, it fell on a Monday. You came into the office dreading the long week of soulless work ahead of you, but now things have become considerably worse. In addition to the unreasonable deadlines and heavy workload, you now have to deal with your undead co-workers who are roaming the halls hungry for your brain. Time to spruce up your résumé and survive. Gads, you hate Mondays… Continue reading

Continue reading

ZOMBIEPOX Game Review

It started with a fever and a call from a small town physician. You were sent to investigate and do some paperwork – nothing major. What you found was far more dangerous than expected. Two of the townspeople were running loose and reports that they were dead before they walked out is rather alarming. You make a quick call and the town is quarantined. The world outside might be safe, but the town and its people desperately need your help. Continue reading
