The X-Men are coming to Marvel Champions

Board Game Quest

Since its release in 2019, Marvel Champions has had a steady stream of releases from Fantasy Flight Games. While we’ve seen heroes from the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, the Spiderverse, and even the Champions, notably lacking has been the fan-favorite X-Men. It has been long rumored that the X-men will be coming to Marvel […]

Destinies: Sea of Sand Expansion Review

Board Game Quest

If you play in the sand, you’re going to get sandy. Sand in your hair. Sand in your clothes. Sand in your mouth. But sand in your board games? Now you’ve gone too far. This expansion may be the exception. You’ll have plenty of other things to worry about such as getting over a wall, […]

Belle of the Ball Review

Board Game Quest

Like me, you’ve probably experienced the anxiety of attending a party or a dance and desperately hoping to catch the attention of a special someone. Stolen glances from across the room. Brief smiles as your gazes meet. Or, apparently, standing in long receiving lines hoping for a few seconds to chat with the person and […]

Oak and Iron Review

Board Game Quest

Take a step back to the 1600s and 1700s with me. It was a time when tall-masted wooden sailing ships ruled the seas. An era of pirates, imperial expansion, and broadside shots. The age of sail has always been a fascination for me so I’ve long wanted to try Oak and Iron from Firelock Games. […]

Yummy Yummy Monster Tummy Review

Board Game Quest

I love playing games with my kids. It’s a for-me preferred activity to end a night on rather than watching Encanto or Storybots again. We can connect, laugh, and have fun. Things have been busy in our neck of the woods for the last few months, so playing grown-up games for dad has been sporadic […]

Top 10 Worst Things To Do in a Kickstarter Campaign

Board Game Quest

I back MANY Kickstarter campaigns. Probably TOO many, to be honest. I mean, my discord username is “Big Bri the KS Guy for a reason”. I do not mind Kickstarter and do not consider it a sign of the impending doom to our hobby. My lens for this list is through why I back games […]

Lord of the Rings: The One Ring RPG Review

Board Game Quest

Lord of the Rings holds a special place in my heart and is one of my favorite fantasy series of all time. So, I was excited to read and get a chance to play The One Ring RPG from Free League. I have a bit of experience with different RPG systems and had even played […]

Concordia Digital Review

Board Game Quest

Origins 2017. I’ve made quick friends with some fellow early-rising board gamers. We’ve dubbed ourselves the “8am Heavy Euro” group. During the show, we managed to play Kanban, Railroad Revolution, and Navegador in the mornings before the exhibit hall even opened. And at 8am on the final day of Origins I was introduced to Concordia. […]

Savannah Park Review

Board Game Quest

Wolfgang Kramer and Michael Kiesling’s homes must be just absolutely covered in tiles they’ve used in prototyping. They’ve designed countless tile laying games. Hex tiles, square tiles, round tiles. Tiles with animals. Floor tiles. They are really the tiling experts. Savannah Park is another in their discography. Simple to learn, family weight, and covered in […]

Islands in the Mist Review

Board Game Quest

Here in New Jersey, the Festival of Ballooning happens every summer, with over 100 hot air balloons taking to the skies over some of the most beautiful locales in the Garden State, drifting in the wind until they come back down to Earth. If you live in the area, and perchance one of those balloons […]

Battletech Beginner Box Review

Board Game Quest

In 1985, a now-defunct publisher created a skirmish game of giant mechs called Battletech: A Game of Armored Combat. I’m guessing at the time, they had no idea it would survive another 35+ years in a variety of different editions. Today, the current publisher of Battletech is Catalyst Games. A few years ago they helped […]

Ride the Rails and Expansion Maps Review

Board Game Quest

As a board gamer who enjoys train games, I’m used to playing games that are sometimes not very good to look at. But in 2014, Capstone Games reprinted Irish Gauge, a fan favorite cube rail game with brand new art from Ian O’Toole, and announced their Iron Rail series of games. Well, today we are […]

About 3 months ago, CMON’s latest Kickstarter campaign wrapped up. This was for their 5th or 6th Zombicide themed game (not counting expansions). Previous iterations have included modern day, fantasy, scifi, and even a licensed horror movie version. But this most recent iteration was the biggest blockbuster. Combining the popular Zombicide gameplay with the Marvel […]

Top 10 Warhammer Age of Sigmar Heroes

Board Game Quest

With a setting that has physical incarnations of magic and literal gods walking around, Warhammer Age of Sigmar is known for having over-the-top heroes with crazy back stories. Some stretching back to the World That Was (Warhammer Fantasy). I figured I would give my hot take on some of my favorite heroes. This is a […]
