Shamans Review

Board Game Quest

I have always been interested in fantastical stories and characters. Even after I discovered comic books and high fantasy, I was intrigued when somebody created a new setting and characters for me to discover, what new things they brought to the genre, and my imagination. Shamans from Project H brings players into a world where […]

Did you know Santorini is in Greece? A beautiful island with iconic blue-domed cubiform buildings lining the coast of the Aegean Sea. What does that have to do with New York? Not a single thing. But Santorini was also the name of a very popular 2016 abstract game that has now been transformed and relocated […]

Board Game Quest

Whether we like it or not, history has categorically been written by the victors. In Oath, the newest release from Leder Games (Root, Vast, and Fort), this fact has never been more apparent. One to six players compete over multiple victory conditions in a quest for command, and then place quill to chronicle to determine […]

Monster Chase Review

Board Game Quest

Anyone who has kids of a certain age knows that bedtime can be, how shall we say, trying. I mean it’s my favorite part of the night. Those trying times get drawn out when fears of monsters under the bed or in the closet appear. We make them feel safe and get them back to […]

Board Game Quest

We are cruising through July and normally, we’d be deep into Gen Con prep. But alas, much like last year, things are not as normal as they should be right now. Gen Con did release their event grid, and while there are a few things here and there, it just didn’t have quite the variety […]

Destinies Review

Board Game Quest

Sometimes I think John Lennon was right when he said, “There’s nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be.” Other times, I’m stepping into a burning field filled with a swarm of vicious rats while attempting to fulfill my ultimate destiny, and wonder if I wasn’t meant to be investigating in the […]

Quetzal Review

Board Game Quest

It’s finally happened! At last, we have enough funding to construct a team of explorers and travel to Quetzal, the city of sacred birds! Maybe. The place we’re going to isn’t ever really named and it’s unclear if “Quetzal” is the actual name of the place or just a reference to the quetzal species of […]

Cosmic Frog Review

Board Game Quest

You are a two-mile tall invulnerable reyna (frog) sent by the First Ones (gods) to harvest terrain from the Shards to rebuild Aeth. Those are some of the terms used throughout a game of Cosmic Frog. I’ll refrain from using too many of those terms for my review, but you should know that’s what you’re […]

Villainous: Despicable Plots Review

Board Game Quest

The expansions for Ravensburger’s Villainous line of games seem to be coming out at a steady clip. One thing I like about them, other than being themed around some of my favorite movies, is that the villains feel pretty unique from one to another. The designers have done a great job of making the characters […]

Flesh and Blood Review

Board Game Quest

My start with tabletop gaming was playing Magic: The Gathering in high school. After that, I spent untold thousands of dollars on little rectangular slices of cardboard and traveled all over the greater midwestern United States competing in events. While for the past 10 years or so I’ve barely played any Magic in person, I […]
