Fire Tower & Rising Flames

Remember when your parents told you not to play with fire? Fire Tower might be the best way to avoid this rule in a responsible way. This game is all about playing with fire in order to survive. The goal of the game is to burn your opponents before they burn you. Sounds kind ofContinue reading “Fire Tower & Rising Flames”

City Builder: Ancient World

We have a lot of competitive games in our collection and a lot of cooperative games, but we don’t have many games that have those two modes in one game. City Builder can be played competitive and cooperative which immediately drew our attention. This game is all about building the best city and scoring points.Continue reading “City Builder: Ancient World”

Wolf Walkers: My Story

Once again our doorbell rang and our postman delivered this cute small card game called Wolf Walkers. It’s a game for two players and this game is inspired by the movie Wolf Walkers and the creators have tried to capture the best moments from the movie into cards. Unfortunately we have not seen the movieContinue reading “Wolf Walkers: My Story”

Mission to Planet Hexx

Ready to go on a space adventure? In Planet Hexx, each space cadet receives a top secret mission file and gets ready to explore space. We always love a good game with a lot of interaction between the players. Planet Hexx is sure one of them. The game comes with a rulebook like normal. However,Continue reading “Mission to Planet Hexx”

Sanctuary: The Keepers Era

After a long wait, we have finally gotten our hands onto Sanctuary! Since we have played Mysthea and Icaion before, so we already got to discover the universe of this ancient planet from Tabula Games a little bit. We back then already fell in love with the weird creatures we encountered, amazing art and qualityContinue reading “Sanctuary: The Keepers Era”

Dale of Merchants 3

Lately we have been adding some pretty heavy titles to our collection, so we felt like it was time for some small cute games to balance it again. Luckily we stumbled apon Dale of Merchants and the cute animal cards immediately drew us in. After reading the very short rulebook and choosing what animals weContinue reading “Dale of Merchants 3”

ArchRavels

Like many other people, we have a lot more hobbies other then board games. I myself am pretty creative and also like to paint or create things in my free time. Unfortunately I have not (yet) learned the art of knitting in order to make my own accessories, clothes or even stuffed animals. But asContinue reading “ArchRavels”

Unmatched

Have you ever heard of the fight between Dracula and Bigfoot? Or perhaps Medusa versus mister Jekyll and doctor Hyde? We even witnessed Bruce Lee fighting three raptors. It sounds like a weird mash up movie, but all of this and many more combinations are possible because of Unmatched. With the highly detailed miniatures thatContinue reading “Unmatched”

Fort

We are interested in many different kind of board games, we noticed we have been exploring small board games a lot lately. In the very beginning of this hobby, we started out with the heaviest board games. Like Nemesis, Tainted grail, etc. But we noticed after a heavy day of work, it’s nice to haveContinue reading “Fort”

Red Rising

We have seen this game pop up everywhere and as big Stonemaier Games fans, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on it! We must confess that we both didn’t read the books… But, before you all come for us, we are planning on reading the full series when we get the chance. We knowContinue reading “Red Rising”

Destinies

After playing several different cooperation storyline exploration games like Tainted Grail and Mansion of Madness for example. We were very excited for Destinies. This game is also a tile placement exploration game, but competitive. We had no idea how this would take form since we have never played anything like this competitive and with anContinue reading “Destinies”

The Ratcatcher

A couple of months back we noticed a game called the Ratcatcher from Platypus Industries. We were immediately excited, not only because the theme was so different and unique, but also because of the gameplay. A tile placement game, exploration and unique art? We had to check it out! The Ratcather is also a soloContinue reading “The Ratcatcher”

But with Dinner in Paris, you get the opportunity to try and create restaurants with the best terraces in order for your guests toContinue reading “Dinner in Paris”

Mandala Stones

So in my spare time, other then playing many, many board games, I also like to paint. The first paintings I created was mandala’s. They are often very colorful and have a few rules to follow which makes them great in learning how to paint. So even seeing the box of Mandala stones made meContinue reading “Mandala Stones”

Genotype

When we first received Genotype, we didn’t really know what to expect. We knew the game is about mutating genes from plants, but that’s about all we knew. When we unpacked the game, a big gameboard came out with all kinds of different genes and it looked complicated. Surely enough the rulebook was big andContinue reading “Genotype”

Fired Up

After playing Mystic Scrolls we received from Drawlab Entertainment, we couldn’t wait to start playing Fired up from them. The box of the game already has an epic design that puts you in the right mind to play right away. Discovering that there was a good insert in the box that has room for allContinue reading “Fired Up”

Mystic Scrolls

We took a good look at our board game collection today and we noticed that we have a lot of fantasy themed games. We decided we have to start gaining more diverse themed games, starting from tomorrow then of course. Because today was still a cheat day with adding Mystic Scrolls! The dices alone soldContinue reading “Mystic Scrolls”

Dive

We always like different kind of games and one of those great examples is the game Canvas which has transparent cards that you play with. After falling in love with that game, we were searching for games with a similar art style, that’s how we came across Dive. The gameplay is totally different, but inContinue reading “Dive”

Clans of Caledonia

We already had many worker placement board games, but of course there is always room for more! Many people have recommended Clans of Caledonia as one of the best board games for two players, so we had to find out for ourselves. The unboxing was already a big part of the fun since the gameContinue reading “Clans of Caledonia”

Reykholt

Many people have recommended board games to us with rules designed by Uwe Rosenberg. I myself am always drawn to board games if the cover box already looks good. The box of Reykholt looks not only very pretty, but also calm and peaceful. I was immediately drawn to it every time I saw this gameContinue reading “Reykholt”

Tawantinsuyu

We have always liked heavy board games and a lot of people have recommended Tawantinsuyu for a while now as it being the most heavy board game there is. We were happy to get our hands on it! Until today, Tomasz still cannot pronounce the name correctly and I must admit, it took me someContinue reading “Tawantinsuyu”

Danger Park

With MeepleLand and Unfair already in our collection, it’s clear we love the amusement park theme. That’s why when we found out about Danger Park, we were immediately excited. But in Danger Park, you don’t run an ordinary theme park. The park you bought has ridiculous designed rides, weird improvements and all kinds of danger.Continue reading “Danger Park”

Megacity Oceania

Since we started to collect board games, we have discovered we like many more kinds of board games then we initially thought.

With so many games in our collection, we are always on the lookout for something new, or different. With Evil Corp I think we might have found that again. I must say we were pretty surprised when the box came in, since it’s shaped very different then most board games, which already makes it standContinue reading “Evil Corp”

Meadow

We often think that one of the most important features about board games, is art. Of course the gameplay has to be good and the game has to be well designed. But if the art is just not to your liking, no matter how good the game is, it will feel different. With Meadow, weContinue reading “Meadow”

Outlive

With the end of a disastrous year 2020, it was time for a good disaster board game. Outlive is right up that ally as it sets the scene in a world that has ended. In Outlive it’s not because of a virus, but because of the world running out of clean water. As only 30.000Continue reading “Outlive”

Charterstone was on our whish list for a long time already, so we were very happy when we got the chance to get it and express our opinion about the game.

Caretos

We always like a good party and in Portugal the ‘Caretos’ know exactly how to do this. In some regions in Portugal it’s a longstanding tradition to dress up as a ‘Caretos’ with Carnaval. Once per year, these demon figures are allowed to come out and dance to try and seduce the village girls anonymously.Continue reading “Caretos”
