Ark Nova Review

Board Game Quest

I opened the door to Tony’s house and was immediately greeted by a flying object. Luckily, my cat like reflexes allowed me to catch it before it hit my face. I turned the box in my hand. “Ark… ARK NOVA. Why are you throwing this?? It’s like… THE hotness right now!” “Dude, I live in […]

Kickstarters of the Week: 5/30

Board Game Quest

May is just about done and it’s a holiday here in the US, so I’ll keep this short and sweet. Enjoy your day off (if you have one), and try and get some gaming in. On to the campaigns! Also, if you are fan of heavy euro games and on the look out for a […]

Top 10 Heavy Euro Games

Board Game Quest

While I consider myself very much an omnigamer—I’m happy playing anything from party games to 18XX—heavy-ish euro-style games continue to be some of my favorites. And here at BoardGameQuest our series of Top Ten lists is sorely missing a list of the best heavy games out there. Now I will say, “game weight” is a […]

Twilight Imperium Turns into a Roll and Write

Board Game Quest

Today, Fantasy Flight announced the upcoming release of their first roll and write game and boy is it a big one. They chose none other than the classic 4x game Twilight Imperium to get this transformation. For those not familiar with it, Twilgiht Imperium is an epic scifi game of exploration and expansion where you […]

Chronicles of Drunagor Expansions Review and Buyer Guide

Board Game Quest

Expansions and add on content are a key part of crowdfunding campaigns. It’s a way for backers to unlock more stretch goals by driving their pledges up. The risk for the backers is getting a ton of content for a mediocre game but many times, it’s the only way to get some content. I think […]

Doctor Who: Don’t Blink Review

Board Game Quest

I never watched much Doctor Who but always loved the Don’t Blink episode and the idea of the Weeping Angels. The fact that the only way to really make it through an encounter with them was to keep your eyes open made them honestly one of the scarier monster concepts ever. So a game where […]

Rainforest City Review

Board Game Quest

For most of my life, I’ve lived in the suburbs where wildlife is a feral cat or birds. I was fortunate enough to spend a lot of summer vacations camping at the mountains and beaches of Southern California. So I’ve always enjoyed the great outdoors and have a fond appreciation of nature. Nature is awe-inspiring […]

Walkie Talkie Review

Board Game Quest

Party games are a rarity on my gaming table, doubly true since the start of the pandemic. It’s just not often that I have 4+ players to test them out and party games also rarely work well under that player count. However, that’s not always the case. Occasionally one pops up that actually works well […]

Kickstarters of the Week: 5/23

Hope everyone is having a great Spring and enjoying a lot of gaming. Summer is just around the corner, so enjoy that last bit of indoor time. But in the meantime, on to the campaigns! Also, if you ever wanted to try out a train board game but didn’t know where to start, be sure […]

Top 10 Train Board Games

Board Game Quest

A little look behind the curtain, I have been working on this list since April 1, 2021, slowly updating items and adjusting the list as I played favorites more and got some different ones to the table. And to be honest, I am so happy that I waited this long to publish it. Because when […]

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 […]

Kickstarters of the Week: 5/16

Board Game Quest

I hope everyone is having a good May so far. It has been unseasonably warm here at BGQ HQ, but it’s still nice to be done with the cold. With the annual Origins Game Fair less than a month away, many of us are eagerly awaiting the start of convention season. What do you think, […]

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 […]
