Head Hackers Review

Board Game Quest

I don’t review party games very often here on BGQ. It’s not something my weekly gaming group gravitates to, but party games are nice to have when you are with a large group of people. So I still like to keep my eyes open for one that might work when the mood strikes. Recently Big […]

Kickstarters of the Week: 1/20

Board Game Quest

January keeps on rolling and it looks like the annual Kickstarter drought has finally ended. With three high profile campaigns launching last week, and plenty more on the horizon, I think gamers will have a good year of new games ahead of them. But in the meantime, we’ve got a few interesting looking titles finishing […]

Folded Wishes Review

Board Game Quest

I have my parents to thank for exposing me to origami at a very young age. I think they got me into it originally to improve my manual dexterity, but something about the simple acts of folding paper into animals and geometric shapes spoke to me back then, as it still does now. I must […]

Blockbuster review

Board Game Quest

To this day, one of my favorite jobs was working at Blockbuster. During senior year in college, I got exclusive access to pre-releases before their street dates and as many older library films as I wanted. It seemed like almost daily I was consuming new shows I’d never heard of, checking out indie recommendations from […]

Minecraft: Builders and Biomes Review

Board Game Quest

If I were to poll people in the street, I would guess that at least 85% of those I polled would at least know something about Minecraft. It’s been released on nearly every major console, including phones, and is the best-selling video game of all time, passing Tetris in May of 2019. I have played […]

What Came First? Review

Board Game Quest

Upon returning home from work, I’m greeted to a box, which posed the question: what came first, the U.S. Postal System or the U.S. Stamp? Well, I don’t know! Do you? Don’t cheat. Just answer the poll impulsively. What Came First? is a 2-8 player party betting game from Big Potato Games. It’s for ages […]

Paranormal Detectives Review

Board Game Quest

When it comes to mystery-solving and investigative games, Clue used to be all we had to play. What was once a mediocre genre is now thriving with many excellent options (note to self: Do a Top 10 Investigative games list). With that in mind, we are going to set our sights a newcomer to the […]

Kingdomino: Duel Review

Board Game Quest

Back in 2016, publisher Blue Orange Games released an excellent family game from veteran designer Bruno Cathala in the form of Kingdomino. This game took the ages-old dominoes mechanic and created an engaging family title that has already seen its fair share of expansions and spinoffs. So, what’s next for the Kingdomino family? Well if […]

King Chocolate Review

Board Game Quest

Welcome to the first of many reviews from a new series I’m calling “Old Man, Old Games.” This is where I look at old games in a traditional review, but also determine how well they stack up against new games. Not every good game is part of the new hotness, and I want to give […]

Quick Thoughts on Terraforming Mars for iOS

Board Game Quest

About a year or so, Asmodee Digital released a digital version of the much acclaimed Terraforming Mars onto Steam. The release was met with mixed results as some players had technical issues, while others, including BGQ staff, loved the port with no issues to speak of. Fast forward to December last year, and Asmodee Digital […]

Bosk Review

Board Game Quest

Deciduous forests contain trees and shrubs that shed their leaves annually. Leading up to this abscission, water and mineral intake into leaves is reduced and eventually stopped, causing a decrease in the chlorophyll content and an elimination of the green coloring of the leaves. The carotenoids and anthocyanins that remain behind are the compounds that […]

Codenames: Duet XXL – Supersize Your Game!

Board Game Quest

I recently had a chance to play the XXL version of the cooperative take on Codenames. While we’ve already reviewed the regular-sized edition, we wanted to go through what this super-sized box offers and if it might be for you. The only difference is the size of the components, the gameplay and included words are […]

Kickstarters of the Week: 1/6

Board Game Quest

We launch into the new year with our first batch of Kickstarters of the Week for the year. As is the usual at this time, the offerings are somewhat light. It will probably take a few more weeks for the campaign to start to ramp up as we exit out of our holiday buying fatigue. […]

PARKS Review

Board Game Quest

I remember stumbling across the PARKS both (technically the Keymaster Games booth) at Gen Con 2019 and thinking “wow that game is pretty”. My friend then says to me “Oh, that’s PARKS, it’s gamer’s Tokaido“. Consider my interest piqued as I’m a fan of Tokaido even though the gameplay (without the expansions) is a bit […]

Tudor Review

Board Game Quest

In Tudor, you will be a Lord during the time of King Henry the VIII trying to win prestige and influence. While my personal knowledge of King Henry VIII is mostly limited to what Herman’s Hermits have told me, the gist of it seems to be that he loves jewelry and wives. So, fittingly, the […]

Aeon’s End Digital Review

Board Game Quest

When it comes to deck-building games, the digital realm is a great place to experience one. Not only do you get to avoid the long clean up time of tearing apart decks and sorting cards, but you don’t have to constantly reshuffle your cards every few rounds. That and you get some wicked animations and […]

Slide Quest Review

Board Game Quest

Back in the 1940s, I’m not quite sure what they did for entertainment on a consistent basis. There was no Netflix, video games, or even the internet in general. What you did have was a wooden box and a marble. That’s right, who hear remembers Labyrinth? No, not the fantastic David Bowie movie. But the […]
