Review: Oceans

Splish splosh, splish splish splosh. It’s time to get SALTY! This week’s review sees Matt diving into Oceans – sadly not in real life as he lives in central London. Wrong time of year, too – frankly. Enjoy!

Review: 10* Button Shy* Games in 10* Minutes!

Initially the pitch for this video was 10 reviews overlapping one-another all at the same time, providing a sort of ‘dreamscape’ where the viewer doesn’t know exactly what they just watched; but instead have a strong sense-memory of really enjoying about half the games.

Instead, this. It’s probably more confusing, and it put me (Tom) into a slight frenzy. I’m now going to have a very long lie-down. Good luck!

Should you desire it, Button Shy’s games can be purchased through their website! Don’t pay them after dark though, or else something something gremlins reference.

Review: Curious Cargo

As the year draws to a close, we’ve saved something small but rather special until last: Curious Cargo, a dedicated head-to-head game by the designer of Pipeline. How fiendish and deep can you possibly go when faced with a box this cute and tiny? Tune in to find out.

Review: Etherfields

With 2020 finally, improbably, coming to an end, we’re onto our final two video reviews of the year. And the first is a BIG ONE.

Review: Inhuman Conditions

December 2, 2020 Reviews Inhuman Conditions As we approach the festive season, what better says ‘the festive season approaches’ more than a game about accusing those near and dear to you of being cold heartless androids. Inhuman Conditions! It’s a unique oblong box that we’ve unleashed our keenest reporter on – to dissect its mechanical … Read more

Review: Renature

Crikey! It’s a review! At this hour? On a WEDNESDAY?

For this scintillating mixture of performance art and review, Tom got lost in the woods for an entire week reviewing Renature – only bringing a camera and some boardgame pieces into the ordeal. On the 7th day, he emerges from amidst the leaves, and bestows upon us his completed work. Oh no.

Review: The Search for Planet X & Stellar

SPACE. Where did it come from? What’s it doing? And why is it so MUCH?

We have no idea, but board game publisher Renegade Game Studios is here to help, offering two great games that will teach us all about outer space- The Search for Planet X and a cute card game called Stellar.

On the one hand, we’re not sure what space did to deserve such generous treatment. On the other hand, space seems awfully dangerous, so perhaps it’s wise for people to stay on it’s good side.

Our 5(6?) Favourite New Roll’n’Write Games

Don’t call it a comeback! Hot on the heels of our 5 Favourite New Card Games video, today we’re covering 5 (nearly new) roll’n’write games that could (loosely) be described as our favourites (kind of).

In order of appearance, this video stars the excellent Copenhagen: Roll’n’Write, Super Skill Pinball 4Cade, Rome & Roll, Cartographers, Kingdomino Duel and Metro X, as well as a cheeky little cameo from Qwinto (not to be confused with Quintin).

The video is also MASSIVE. A real five course meal of probability management. Loosen your belts, everybody!
