Bloodborne: The Board Game

years. Many have praised Bloodborne for being a gothic masterpiece, so the powers that be decided to turn it into a board game! We bought this game for the miniatures. I mean, they are absolutely fantastic miniatures. If you just want to see the mini’s I would recommend jumping over to my original post on the game. But, to my delight, the minis are not the only part of the game! This game in intense, engaging, and I am constantly looking forward to my next session. Continue Reading →

Dinosaur Table Battles

Who doesn’t love dinosaurs? Who doesn’t love dinosaurs battling other dinsoaurs? Who doesn’t love teams of dinosaurs battling each other? Well that’s what Dinosaur Table Battles is all about! I truly do love this game as it has such a great theme and a great mechanic. The biggest challenge for me with this game is that dice hate me! (More on that later).

Bargain Quest

Bargain Quest is a card drafting game that deals with the hand management, auction and bidding, and economic management concepts while still standing in a light to mid weight game. I will admit that Bargain Quest is a little lighter of a game than I normally enjoy. That being said I still find a good and light enjoyment in this game. This game does a great job of introducing the drafting mechanic to newer players and I would contest that it is a gateway game. Continue Reading →

February seemed like a good time to do a string of posts highlighting different two player games! Being stuck inside during a pandemic has expanded the search for games that have less players.

TROGDOR!! The Board Game

I grew up on watching Homestar Runner. My brothers and I always looked forward to the next episode. Weather is was a new toon, a holiday episode or a Strong Bad Email, it always brought a smile to our faces. And undeniably, Trogdor was one of the favorite characters that emerged from the show. I spent hours and hours playing peasant quest and doing by best to defeat him. So when I found out there was going to be a board game, I couldn't have been more excited. When I first heard about the board game, I assumed that it would be similar to peasant quest. I figured the players would peasants trying to defeat Trogdor. And boy was I wrong. Why go against Trogdor when you can help him and burninate the country side? Or burninate the peasants? Or, even better, burn the thatch roof cottages?! Continue Reading →
