In the dark streets of Banana Republic, grifters and conmen use their tricks to swindle the people out of their capital. Their only defense comes in the form of heroes in spandex, people so influential on the economy that their words alone can shape it. But when the collective debt of humanity awakens the dreaded Debtzilla, can the heroes overcome the monster?Continue reading “Review – Debtzilla”
I am not a capitalist. Capitalism builds its success with disregard for—and often through—the suffering of the lower class. I tell you this to emphasize that James Naylor’s Magnate: The First City makes me feel like a slimy shrew of a human, while also acting as a great criticism of the system (whether James intended that or not).
I have still not played the base version of Grifters. This review is only for Nexus as a standalone title. Which, from what I can tell, is not the recommended way to play. In fact, I fully suggest you avoid this version if you don’t have the base game.
It really shouldn’t be such a novel idea to have resources be finite in a deck builder. But here I am calling Pasaraya one of the best of the genre for this very reason. Its creative in a way I didn’t know we needed. Let’s just hope others follow suit.Continue reading “Review – Pasaraya”
Normally I like to open up these reviews with something witty or insightful that draws the reader in but also relates to the game. This time, I’m opening it up with anger.

You’re not Game Freak…Continue reading “Review – Railroad Ink Red and Blue”
Slipping in right under the timer here everyone. The Kickstarter for Chocolate Factory starts tomorrow, so let’s talk about it now so you can go check it out!

This review should have gone live weeks ago. I couldn’t think of how to start it. Even now I’m tempted to make the whole review be “It’s good. Buy it.”
Which it totally is and you totally should.Continue reading “Review – Ruthless”
Zoar is a weird nut. It wants to be a strategic euro, but the random elements may be too powerful. It wants to be a game of high interaction, but above all rewards patience. It requires planning until the gods strike you down.
And that wasn’t a metaphor. There’s like all this lightning and death and *pew boom crackle*Continue reading “Review – Zoar”
I had the privilege of helping out CGE at Gen Con 2018 when they debuted Pictomania 2nd Edition. Over those few days the creativity I saw was matched only by the hilarity of the art. So many four-legged hippo shaped creatures (that were clearly zebras come on!) and so many floating stick men doing the macarena.
Freud would have had a field day.Continue reading “Review – Pictomania 2nd Ed.”
