Board Game Quest

February has finally arrived and while we all recover from our Super Bowl party hangovers —seriously, why can’t they put that game on a Saturday—we’ve put together a rather large group of Kickstarters for you to browse. It appears that the annual Kickstarter drought is indeed officially over. So let’s get right to it! Also, […]

Raiders of the North Sea Digital Review

Board Game Quest

Many folks have taken an interest in board games as an avenue to disconnect from their screens and to reconnect with friends and family. But in the last few years, analog board games have started to take on a digital interface. Some are direct translations to the digital medium, while others have made adjustments for […]

Queenz: To Bee or Not to Bee Review

Board Game Quest

Gosh, I really don’t like bees. I get their purpose in the ultimate balance of the universe, but bees in the real world scare me. Bees in Queenz though? They’re powerful point farmers and I want them all! Paired with the beauty of the orchids in the garden, this game easily attracted me from the […]

Star Trek: Conflick in the Neutral Zone Review

Board Game Quest

There are two facts I can lay down right away for you. I love dexterity games and I love a good pun name. That’s why I was immediately interested in checking out Star Trek: Conflick in the Neutral Zone from WizKids Games. Not only does WizKids publish one of my favorite flicking games ever (Seal […]

Squirrel or Die Review

Board Game Quest

Animals have always been a popular theme in board games, and that trend seems to be rising in the last few years. While not as pronounced as 2019’s darling engine builder Wingspan, what about a game focused on squirrel’s gathering food for the winter. In Squirrel or Die, players are hiding their food in autumn, […]

Enchanters: Overlords Review

Board Game Quest

Be prepared to take on the role of an Enchanter, a mighty hero who must defend the helpless village with magic and might. You’ll be crafting a powerful artifact to take on the hordes of monsters and dragons threatening the townspeople. OK, sure, I could have just described about a thousand fantasy novels, movies, or […]

Tavern Masters Review

Board Game Quest

Parties in role-playing games would not know what to do with themselves if it was not for the existence of the friendly local tavern. Providing wayward adventurers with the promise of food, drink, lodging, and employment opportunities, taverns have found themselves at the center of attention for adventurers as long as there has been tabletop […]

Quest List: Gateway Board Game Recommendations

Board Game Quest

Welcome to a new series of articles from us at Board Game Quest, which we are calling the Quest List. Similar to our traditional Top 10 lists, we as a writing staff are picking games which we think best fit the featured category. As opposed to one writer giving ten different options, this is a […]

MegaCity: Oceania Review

Board Game Quest

Last year we took a look at Tokyo Jutaku, one of the games in the Tokyo-inspired line from Jordan Draper. While I enjoyed the racing element of Jutaku as players tried to complete their structures in real time, that certainly didn’t appeal to everyone. Today we are looking at MegaCity: Oceania, a game which Jordan […]

Escape Tales: Low Memory Review

Board Game Quest

It’s been quite a while since I’ve spent any time with a tabletop escape room game. Every since Unlock and EXIT took the genre by storm in 2017, escape room games seem to have slowly settled into a more gradual release cycle. Personally, I enjoyed the much-deserved break after playing a pile of these games […]

Bahamas Review

Board Game Quest

You’ve pulled off the most improbable heist. Bags are just loaded with cash and you and your co-conspirators are on a plane headed for—well, the Bahamas. But of course, your plane starts having mechanical issues. You are going to crash. And there aren’t enough parachutes on board for everyone. Find a parachute, grab as much […]

Oath: Chronicles of Empire and Exile Preview

Board Game Quest

Cole Wehrle is a designer that is continually held in high regard. While maybe not the newest designer, Cole has been on an upward trend surrounding his releases. In the last two years, he has released two games that have generated Kickstarter hype and critical acclaim: Leder Games’ Root and his own company’s Pax Pamir […]

Cloudspire Review

Board Game Quest

What a game is and what gamers want a game to be are two different things. It doesn’t take long browsing the forums of the interwebs to find an aggrieved player who complains that the 6 camel strategy was never intended to be a thing or that the Chao Fa rule ruins the elegance of […]

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 […]

Board Game Quest

Are you an adventure park junkie? A tilt-a-whirl dervish? A roller coaster connoisseur? In Imagineers, you’ll take on the role of theme park ride designers, competing to create the coolest rides in the park. Get ready to hear the theme park music in your head as you attempt to create the best rides and attractions […]

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 […]
