Glorantha: The Gods War Review

Board Game Quest

I love Cthulhu Wars. So with that in mind, when Tony received Glorantha: The Gods War, he asked me if I wanted to review it. I was not familiar with the title and asked for some more details. He described it as an area control game with similar mechanics to Cthulhu Wars and mentioned that […]

Horrified Review

Board Game Quest

When it comes to monsters, they come in all shapes and sizes. Be they Lovecraftian horrors dwelling from outer space or gibbering mouthers in your DnD campaign, monsters have only been limited by a person’s imagination. Yet you’d be hard-pressed to find monsters more iconic than the Universal Studios ones. Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, […]

The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game Digital Review

Board Game Quest

One of the obvious sources for digital games are pre-existing board and card games that have already grown in popularity or have an established fan base. These games bring with them a great deal of expectations and presumptions by players, especially for games that have a long line of expansions behind them. And with the […]

It’s hunting time for your pack of dinosaurs. The field is flush full of archaeopteryx, ripe for the picking. But beware, because not every dinosaur is an Apex predator. Even the quick velociraptor isn’t safe from the mighty T-rex. That’s right, there is a pecking order in Dino World where the big prey on the […]

Queens and Kings 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.

Pigasus Review

Board Game Quest

Croco-bird? Lobste-phant? Peli-shark? In Pigasus, mixed-up animals will twist your perception as you race to collect matching sets of smashed together creatures. Are those elephant legs? Lobster antennae? Is that one even mixed up at all? Pigasus will have you questioning your eyes as well as your knowledge of animal taxonomy. Pigasus is a matching […]

Tuki Review

Board Game Quest

Long-time readers of BGQ know my love of dexterity games. Their unique and tactile nature always manages to give me a fresh gaming experience, which I love. At Gen Con this year, publisher Next Move Games tossed me a copy of their newest dexterity game, Tuki, for me to check out. This real-time, stacking game […]

Revolution of 1828 Review

Board Game Quest

Stefan Feld’s name carries a lot of weight in board game circles. He’s basically board game royalty. He’s designed classics like Castles of Burgundy, Trajan, and Notre Dame. He continues to create new games that are warmly received, like last year’s Carpe Diem. These eurogames are often described as “point salad” games where you score […]

Fertility Review

Board Game Quest

For the record, Fertility’s theme is based around the flooding of the Nile River in ancient Egypt, providing an abundance of resources and a flourishing market. Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s move on to a review of Catch Up Games’ unfortunately named release, Fertility. This is a tile-laying and set […]

Bizarre Bazaar Review

Board Game Quest

“Tokens and treasures, yesterdays pleasures Cheap imitations of heirlooms of old Dented and tarnished, scarred and unvarnished In old Portobello they’re bought and they’re sold” ~Portobello Road, Bedknobs and Broomsticks The punters are flush with cash, and you are flush with all manner of delights and curiosities to catch their eye.

Darwin’s Choice Review

Board Game Quest

Owing to this struggle for life, any variation, however slight and from whatever cause proceeding, if it be in any degree profitable to an individual of any species, in its infinitely complex relations to other organic beings and to external nature, will tend to the preservation of that individual, and will generally be inherited by […]

Kickstarters of the Week: 11/4

Board Game Quest

November is here and the weather apparently decided to turn abruptly. Over here at BGQ HQ the seasons apparently decided that they were done with fall and we’ve moved right on to winter with some solid snow lately. I’m definitely not ready for that. Oh well, on to the campaigns! Also, did you know you […]

51st State: Allies Expansion Review

Board Game Quest

Ever since Portal Games released the 51st State Master Set back in 2016, new life was breathed into this post-apocalyptic engine building game. While the core master set was already a complete game (and included two expansions), Portal Games wasn’t content to let the game coast. We’ve already covered the first new expansions, Scavengers, and […]
