If I’m Going Down… Game Review

The food ran out about a week ago. The water, just the other day. That’s it. Game over, man. A sarcastic smile crosses your face as you consider how long and hard you fought the undead only to come down to this: a starved, terribly thirsty, “survivor” who is about to be just another victim. Dang, that’s not the way you wanted it to end. Sad, really. Whatever. That’s loser talk. Fine. If that’s the way it’s going to be, so be it. You’ve got a handful of bullets left and enough spit and vinegar to keep fighting. If you’re going down, you are going to take as many of them with you as possible! Time for the finale!

Then, one night, the body of a poor stable boy was found in the barn, murdered. And the murderer? No one knows for sure, but there are dark whispers that a werewolf is to blame.

LEGO Monster 4 Game Review

Monster 4 is fun and light. The game is fast paced, well balanced, and streamlined making it easy to teach and exciting to play. Actions are determined by a die roll, but the player still gets to decide how they will do it. And, as it turns out, that is what makes all the difference in the world. Continue reading

Zombie Dice Game Review

Zombie Dice is a press your luck dice game lovingly wrapped around a zombie theme. Game play is very straight forward, but there is also an element of risk vs. reward which makes an otherwise dead simple game slightly more complex. This game plays fast which means it’s great for parties, quick filler games, and most importantly, little geeks. Continue reading
