The Lost Ruins of Arnak Review

Board Game Quest

One of my favorite movie trilogies has to be the Indiana Jones series. What? No, you’re wrong, there are only THREE movies. It’s a fantastic combination of exploration, adventure, and excitement. What’s not to love about Dr. Jones and Co. exploring uncharted ruins or lost civilizations. If you’ve been looking for a new way to […]

Fantasy Defense Review

Board Game Quest

When gamers talk about niche player count games, it hardly gets more niche than 1-2 player games. These are specifically games that work well solo, or, if gamers manage to trick a Tinder date into playing board games, also work with two. The next game up for consideration is aptly, if unimaginatively, called Fantasy Defense. […]

Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Crypt Hunters Review

Board Game Quest

Glymmsforge is under siege both inside and out. Nagash, the God of Death, continues to send swarms of undead to attack the city and has also raised hordes of Chainrasps in the Ten Thousand Tombs below the city itself. In the tombs, there is only one hope, that the Hyshian Illuminator can banish all the […]

Scooby-Doo: Escape from the Haunted Mansion Review

Board Game Quest

As a 30-something with a child, I sometimes get into weird discussions about animated television shows. I bemoan the days of watching Paw Patrol and Team Umizoomi. Back in my day, we had much better shows… like Tiny Toon Adventures and Rugrats. Then you got old people that will come in and talk about the […]

Pendulum Review

Board Game Quest

Euro games—some people love them, others hate them. I am a professed lover of the genre. Turning cubes into different cubes and different cubes into victory points? Count me in! Ok, maybe it’s not that easy. My favorite games take a unique twist to the standard formula or have a theme that pulls me into […]

Herobane 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. It’s hard to distinguish between card games and board games sometimes. Some people define board games as anything which has a board whether it’s for individual […]

Building Site Review

Board Game Quest

One of my main goals with having kids (I suppose other than raising them right and all that stuff) is to have some more gaming partners in the house. I mean, why try and find more players to show up for game night when you can just make your own. So to that effect, I’ve […]

Why New Board Game Releases May Be Delayed This Year

Board Game Quest

A while ago I was chatting with fellow BGQ reviewer and all-around great person AnnaMaria and she mentioned a shipping container shortage in China. This was the first I heard about this, so I asked her to elaborate. Apparently, word was that because of COVID, less output was happening around the world and many countries […]

Curious Cargo Review

Board Game Quest

Pipeline was one of the biggest releases of 2019, particularly on the heavy end of the complexity spectrum. It ran a successful Kickstarter and was the first original design released from Capstone Games, as well as the first design released from designer Ryan Courtney. And to be honest, my one play of Pipeline didn’t overly […]

Dragon Castle Review

Board Game Quest

The trend of taking mechanics from classic games and breathing new life into them is nothing new. Five Tribes did it with Mancala, Samurai Spirit did it with Blackjack, and SOS Titanic did it with solitaire. Is the gaming world ripe for even more of these? Enter the Dragon Castle and find out! Clearly inspired […]

Slay the Spire The Board Game Coming to Kickstarter This Spring

Board Game Quest

One of my addictions this year has been the mobile game Slay the Spire and I’m guessing I’m not alone in that regard. This roguelike deck builder has players taking one of four heroes up through the spire to try and defeat the BBEG (big bad evil guy). Each character has their own unique spin, […]

Super Fantasy Brawl Review

Board Game Quest

When it comes to skirmish games, they come in a few different flavors. For the die hards, you have games like Warhammer 40k, which has you building and painting miniatures, and books thick with rules and lore. On the other end of the spectrum, you have lighter games like Wildlands and Unmatched. These games have […]

Kickstarters of the Week: 1/4

Board Game Quest

We have arrived! It’s officially 2021 and while the world hasn’t changed overnight, we can finally put that craphole that was 2020 in our rearview mirror. I have high hopes for this year (don’t we always) and am looking forward to some kind of return to normalacy. As far as the Kickstarter campaigns are concerned, […]

Under Falling Skies Review

Board Game Quest

The theme from Under Falling Skies is nothing new. An alien invasion of Earth has been featured in books, movies, and board games for about as long as I can remember. I’m completely unashamed that one of my favorite movies from the 90s was the Will Smith classic Independence Day. But what’s unique about Under […]

Friday the 13th: Horror at Camp Crystal Lake Review

Board Game Quest

You and your fellow stereotypical teenage friends have decided to take a relaxing trip together to Camp Crystal Lake. What could go wrong? Well, maybe a murderous psycho killer is on the loose, that’s what. So you’ll have to try to gather supplies but avoid the hockey-mask clad Jason Vorhees and survive five nights before […]
