Top 10 Solo Board Games

Board Game Quest

One of my favorite things about board games is being able to sit down with friends and create some enjoyable memories. I suppose that’s why I’ve never gravitated much to solo board games. Most of the time, I’d much rather just play a video game. But desperate times call for desperate measures. With all of […]

My Little Scythe: Pie in the Sky Expansion Review

Board Game Quest

I have a confession to make: I like My Little Scythe better than Scythe. No, I’m not saying one is better than the other; I wouldn’t put that online. It’s simply been a better fit for me due to the quicker game time and the less-tedious-to-run Automa. I was eager to see what new expansions […]

Processing: A Game of Serving Humanity Review

Board Game Quest

Seppy Yoon is a weird dude. He is exceptionally nice and a joy to game with, but readers should know what they’re in for with this next review. Seppy’s mind is the kind to take a Twilight Zone episode to the next level. He’s the kind of guy who takes a strange mixture of pop […]

The Isle of Cats Review

Board Game Quest

One of the trends in board gaming lately has been the use of polyominos. These Tetris-style pieces have been seen in games about bears, quilting, and even Viking conquest. Today, you’ll be embarking on a wooden sailing ship to rescue polyomino shaped cats in the Isle of Cats from The City of Games. So grab […]

Kickstarters of the Week: 3/20

Board Game Quest

As April continues to roll on, so does the worldwide pandemic. I think we can all agree that we are ready to see the other side of this thing. April seems to at least be moving faster than March did, but as far as I’m concerned, summer can’t get here fast enough. Oh well, on […]

Quartermaster General Review

Board Game Quest

Did you know that it’s incredibly rare to find a board game themed around World War 2? OK, yes, I’m joking. Next to Cthulhu and trading in the Mediterranean region, that’s probably one of the most ubiquitous themes for tabletop games. While I do still enjoy a game of Axis and Allies or Memoir 44 […]

How to Raise a Gamer: Part 1 – To Lay Tiles or Take Them Away

Board Game Quest

This is a guest post from Chris and Damien Biewer. COVID-19 has forced a lot of “quality” time with the family. Board games have been needed to fill the hours between teaching your kids math and geography (after you Google the answers). While The Game of Life teaches your children that families come in many […]

Quirky Circuits Review

Board Game Quest

BEEP! BOOP! Robots are taking over the world. Luckily, they are here to make things easier. A cat-riding vacuum clearer, a Sushi-making chef, and others make up the wonderful world of Quirky Circuits. You and your fellow players will be programming these robots to complete various scenarios before the robots need to go back to […]

Kickstarters of the Week: 4/13

Board Game Quest

We are almost halfway through April and I can honestly say that this month definitely feels like it is moving faster than the decade long March we just had. That being said, we are still in the middle of the Covid lockdown and we are all looking forward to seeing the other side of that. […]

Quest List: Most Underrated Games

Board Game Quest

There are games that get a ton of recognition. Heck, we give annual awards for those games. With the wealth of games coming out each year, there are quite a few games that are not given their proper due. Some games deserve more attention due to being great, or it might be incorrectly judged by […]

Mars Open Review

Board Game Quest

I have a solid love for dexterity games in my life. If it flicks, stacks, bounces, or balances, I’ll give it a shot. Some of my fellow BGQ reviewers even refer to dexterity games as “sport games”. While they are most likely trying to mock my love of hand-eye coordination, never has that been more […]

Exceed Shovel Knight Giveaway

Board Game Quest

Last July, our reviewer Tahsin gave his thoughts on the Exceed Fighting System with his review of Exceed Street Fighter. This dueling game gives players a way to enjoy fighting games on their tabletop when they don’t feel like firing up a video game console. You can read the full review here, but overall he […]

Reavers of Midgard Review

Board Game Quest

A franchise, once started, has an unspoken obligation to keep up or increase the overall value of the license it’s using. A seminal game that founds a franchise puts a stake in the ground to enshrine its theme and mechanisms as a paragon of what is possible with the right combination. When planning a followup […]

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 […]
