Rallyman: GT Review

Board Game Quest

As a lifelong Indiana resident, I should probably be really into racing. Unfortunately, I’ve never even been to the Indy 500, or the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for that matter. It just isn’t my type of sport. But I love racing as a theme for a board game. There are plenty of ones already out there—Formula […]

Hedgehog Hop Review

Board Game Quest

When rating your dance crew auditions, I think everyone knows that Jason Mendoza’s 13 point scale (with an 8 being the highest) is the way to go. Now the real question is where would a hedgehog fall on that scale? Rergadless, when forming a dance mob with hedgehogs, they need help getting in sync, and […]

Kickstarters of the Week: 7/6

Board Game Quest

July is finally here and this week we have another six new tabletop campaigns for you to check out. It was actually really hard to narrow down the choices this week, as there were a lot of great offerings. But we think we found a nice grouping and you are able to find something that […]

Top 10 Abstract Strategy Board Games

Board Game Quest

People on the internet love to argue. Especially board gamers, it seems. Among those things are definitions of what is a eurogame or thematic game or card game or abstract strategy game. Well, there is just a lot of gray area. Nonetheless, Dylan and I are here to brave the comments section telling me which […]

Chrono Corsairs Review

Board Game Quest

Pirate themed games can be lots of fun. Stealing from friends, grabbing loot from a nearby isle, and charting your way to victory is usually something that people love in games, especially games like Pirate’s Cove and Merchants & Marauders. What’s even better is that pirate games are implemented in different ways, but usually all […]

Armpal Preview

Board Game Quest

Note: This preview uses pre-release components and rules. What you see here may be different from the final, published game. This post was a paid preview, you can find out more information here. I love to build things. I think I get it from my dad who’s one of the most clever people I know. If you need something […]

Catacombs Third Edition Review

Board Game Quest

I’ve had my eye on the new edition of Catacombs for quite a while. It marries a dexterity game (flicking specifically) with a dungeon crawler, which are two of my favorite types of games. So, of course, when Elzra Corp offered to send over a copy of Catacombs Third Edition for us to check out, […]

Kickstarters of the Week: 6/29

Board Game Quest

We are just about done with June and I can honestly say I have no idea what July is going to bring. This year has been chock full of surprises, both good and bad (feels like more bad doesn’t it?), so here’s hoping that July won’t involve giant lizards destroying major cities. Anyway, on to […]

Tang Garden Review

Board Game Quest

I’m a sucker for a game with a good table presence. Something like Rampage (aka Terror in Meeple City) with its stacks of buildings or Cthulhu Wars with the massively oversized miniatures are just a joy to play with. Walking by, it’s just hard not to stop and take notice. That’s what first attracted me […]

Imperial Settlers Roll and Write Digital Review

Board Game Quest

Last fall, Portal Games released their very first roll and write game set in their Imperial Settlers universe. The smartly named Imperial Settlers Roll and Write game was easy to learn, but as Andrew noted in his review, heavily bogged down by accounting. At the time, I always thought this game would have made a […]

Second Chance Review

Board Game Quest

Is flip-and-write the new roll-and-write? Definitely. Is complexity king in what used to be a genre of quick to teach filler games? Without a doubt. Has everything started including polyominoes to the extent that every board gamer now knows that “polyomino” means? Uh huh. But Second Chance is giving—well, a second chance—to games that eschew […]

Plunder: A Pirate’s Life Review

Board Game Quest

One thing that has always attracted me to board gaming is the physical nature of the hobby. A game with great looking components can really elevate the play experience in ways that can be hard to describe. Amazing art and excellent physical components can really bring a theme home on your tabletop. That’s one of […]

But this week have some excellent options, so I hope you find something that sparks your interest! Also, did you know you can get our […]

Monumental Review

Board Game Quest

I’m always on the hunt for a new civilization-building game. Ever since I played my first game of Sid Meier’s Civilization back in the early 90’s, I was hooked. Thankfully, there are no shortage of civ building games to choose from for a game night. They range from quick dice rolling fairs like Nations: The […]

1972: The Lost Phantom Review

Board Game Quest

We are currently living in the strangest time of our lives. Without going into the details that everyone knows, it’s also impacted the lives of gamers. All gaming has shifted to an online medium and game nights are currently a myth. It’s caused me to adjust my review schedule as well. After making the adult […]

Coral Islands Review

Board Game Quest

Board games are great. We all love them… or you likely wouldn’t be here. Today you get not just one, but two games in a single box. Coral Islands is really “Coral,” a dice placement game where you try to form a coral reef and “Islands” where you are creating a chain of islands and […]

Talisman: Batman – Super Villain Edition Review

Board Game Quest

Talisman, first published in 1983, is one of the most prominent adventure board games that now has multiple editions and dozens of expansions. Last year, the fantasy-themed game of wizards, dwarves, and dragons got a couple of makeovers using popular intellectual properties. Today we are looking at Talisman as it moves into Arkham Asylum and […]

Fort Sumter Digital Review

Board Game Quest

When it comes to Civil War board gaming, my experience is fairly light. I still have a copy of Freedom: The Underground Railroad (which is pretty fantastic), and I used to have a copy of Battle Cry, which has long since worked its way out of my collection. But I still find historical gaming fascinating […]

Death Battle! Review

Board Game Quest

So, hypothetically speaking, who would win in a fight: Goku or Superman? Or Hulk versus The Thing? If you’re like me, I dreamed up these kinds of battles as a kid and so did the folks over at Rooster Teeth, who have built a successful web series around this idea. So how well does this […]
