Kickstarters of the Week: 4/6

Board Game Quest

April is finally here and I’m definitely happy to see that. That was probably the longest March in living memory. While board game nights here are still on hold, we are still playing what we can on digital platforms. I hope you are able to get a little bit of gaming in at home as […]

Tiny Towns Review

Board Game Quest

Anyone who has played more than one or two of the top 50 games from the BoardGameGeek list will be able to easily relate to the sentiment: “Board games are not simple.” Games that can be taught in 5 minutes and get a huge market appreciation are really not that common. It only happens about […]

Streets of Steel Review

Board Game Quest

Enjoying a game’s theme is always something to look forward to. From the exciting experiences you’ll have in the 18th century to the fast-paced exploration through the Seven Seas, you’ll find a story that’s right for you. Streets of Steel is a ‘side scrolling’ cooperative board game based on 80’s style arcade fighting games. If […]

It’s a Wonderful World Review

Board Game Quest

March 21, 2020. 3:00 AM. I am roused from my slumber by a pounding on my door and a command received via text from an unknown number. “Review the Christmas game.” Huh? Half asleep, I stumble down my stairs and open my front door. There is a shrink-wrapped game sitting on my porch titled “It’s […]

Kickstarters of the Week: 3/30

Board Game Quest

We’ve finally hit the last few days of March and I can’t really when I’ve wanted to be done with a month more than now. This has easily been one of the worst months for all of us in recent memory. I hope you’ve been able to play some games with your family while holed […]

Sanctum Review

Board Game Quest

When it comes to video games, Diablo is probably one of my all-time favorites. From Diablo 1 to 3, I’ve spent more hours in this loot piñata than I can even count. While I feel like there have been a few attempts to bring this game to our tabletops, they have all been met with […]

Gates of Delirium Review

Board Game Quest

INSIGNIFICANT MORTALS! It is I, the GREAT CTHULHU. The bringer of gaming knowledge is back to deliver more educational information for a me-themed game. I’m glad you have seen the light and forsaken Lord YouTube to read my ancient wisdom. You have chosen wisely. The human Tony tells me it’s good if I also “plug” […]

Funkoverse Strategy Game Giveaway

Board Game Quest

Last year we reviewed the Funkoverse Strategy Game, which had a huge debut at Gen Con 2019. This light skirmish game uses those crazy looking FunkoPoP figures you’ve probably seen all over the place. You can read the full review here, but it’s a unique system that’s both accessible and uses a lot of great […]

Curators 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. City building games have a pretty solid footing in the board game world. From origins with real estate games, the theme has morphed over time and […]

Sierra West Review

Board Game Quest

Saddle up cowboys—we are headed west in search of gold. And bandits. And apples. And fishing. Sierra West allows us to pick from four different modes each game, slightly changing how we approach settling in the Old West. You’ll hike up the mountain and pull your wagon on the trail in reach of the thing […]

Kickstarters of the Week: 3/23

Board Game Quest

I usually start off these intros with whats happening in the board gaming world, but I think it’s fair to say that Covid-19 is dominating our lives. These are scary times and we are all looking forward to getting to the other side of this pandemic. Here at BGQ, we are mostly spread out, but […]

Top 10 2 Player Board Games

Board Game Quest

Back in 2017, I released the list of my Top 10 Two Player Board Games. It was a great list that has games I still play 3 years later. However, it’s always good to revisit these lists, and this one popped into my head after a large offering of excellent two player games hit our […]

Deep Blue Review

Board Game Quest

There’s treasure below! A storied treasure map plots out the locations of several unplundered marine wrecks. But it’s obvious you are not the only one with this information! Gather your crew, stock your supplies, and set seas for the biggest treasure hunt of all time! Deep Blue is a press your luck bag drawing game […]

Fillit Review

Board Game Quest

This has been a great year for me of getting exposed to Asian market games. I like finding titles that don’t seem to get a lot of attention here and finding the hidden gems. It has been interesting to see what they bring to the table and how they differ from what most hobby board […]

Son of Esker Review

Board Game Quest

Doctor Esker has vanished—again! Or still, maybe? Look, it’s unclear. The flavor text is unchanged from the original game. Once again, players are presented with the only clues to his disappearance—a book of puzzles written in his own hand—the scribblings of someone who we are increasingly sure is a madman. Can you crack the new […]

The Taverns of Tiefenthal Review

Board Game Quest

At some time or another, I’m sure just about everyone has daydreamed about running their own tavern. Whether you wanted to be Sam Malone from Cheers or Guinan serving synthahol in Ten Forward, there is something alluring about running your own gathering space of drinks and socialization. Well today you get to live that dream […]

Why We Play

Board Game Quest

As I write this, much of the world is in the grips of dealing with the COVID-19 (aka Coronavirus) pandemic. The impact of “social distancing,” extraordinary health precautions, and the wave of anxiety around public space closures has come to a head here in the United States as it has already been felt in other […]

Kickstarters of the Week: 3/16

Board Game Quest

We are about at the halfway point of March and what a month it’s been! Covid-19 is dominating the news and our lives. This past week alone has been pretty unbelievable. I hope you all are staying safe and healthy out there. Remember, wash your hands, don’t touch your face. I hope you can this […]

Top 10 Superhero Board Games

Board Game Quest

There was a time when if you wanted to consume some superhero goodness, comic books were about all you had. Hollywood’s take on superheroes was laughable on the best of days (and they were not comedy movies), and the board game realm was regulated to regurgitated tiles like Marvel Monopoly or some trivial pursuit offshoot.
