V-Commandos Game Review

American martial artist, actor, film producer and screenwriter, Chuck Norris, said “In times of conflict, our citizens have always been able to rise to the challenge. Maybe no greater example of that ability is found during the onset of World War II.” World War II is now romanticized as a time of great heroism, full of colorful characters, and brave acts. Which of course it was, but the horror of the “Second Great War” has been lost as the generation who fought it leave us. In this game, players take on the roles of brave soldiers from different countries who must work together against terrible odds. It might be just a game, but sacrifice and duty for a greater good is the premise. Continue reading

Jurassic Park: Danger! Game Review

American film director and screenwriter, Colin Trevorrow, said “There’s something about dinosaurs that should be very humbling to human beings.” Humankind has long been fascinated with these ancient lizards. We dig up their bones, dream of them, and yet are not frightened by their size and strength. Which makes sense because they are extinct. But what if they weren’t…? Continue reading

Hotshots Game Review

Pulitzer Prize–winning American journalist, Ernie Pyle, said “The closest fires were near enough for us to hear the crackling flames and the yells of firemen. Little fires grew into big ones even as we watched. Big ones died down under the firemen’s valor only to break out again later.” The bravery of the men and women who volunteer to fight the fires that rage in the wilderness cannot be overstated, nor the dangers of doing so. Many of us will never be given (or want) the opportunity to try. In this game, you can test your resolve, your team work, and luck to see if you can put the fires out before it’s too late. Continue reading

Herbaceous Game Review

Eighteenth century poet, Minnie Aumonier, wrote “When the world wearies and society fails to satisfy, there is always the garden.” Many find solace when they bend a knee and dig their hands in cool earth, planting seeds and growing abundance. But gardening can be intimidating and requires a great deal of patience. In this game, players will exercise their green thumb and plant a herb garden, one of the best and easiest ways to get into the gardening habit. But don’t rush it. Continue reading

Commies! Game Review (prepublished version)

American publisher, philanthropist, and diplomat, Walter Annenberg, said “The greatest power is not money power, but political power.” In this game, power is given to you, but you must share it. This will not do. With the help of others, you might be able to take it all, but you are not the only one with big ambitions. You must work with others to obtain your goals, while at the same time helping others obtain theirs, to a point… Continue reading

Mortals: Descent of the Gods Game Review (prepublished version)

Now humanity is plagued by the undead and all seems lost. But not yet. The Gods may have fallen, but they aren’t down for the count! Continue reading

Oriville Wright once said, “No flying machine will ever fly from New York to Paris.” I wonder how he would react to today’s busy airline industry.

In this game, you’ll be spending your time attempting to please the passengers while still trying to keep your plane up in the air! Continue reading
