Review: Lords of Waterdeep (board game)

Lords of Waterdeep is an interesting experiment by Wizards of the Coast. Rather than a genuine attempt to capture Dungeons & Dragons in a board game format (which it has already achieved admirably with games like Legend of Drizzt and Return to Castle Ravenloft), Lords of Waterdeep is a crack at a Euro-style game.

Review: Duck! Duck! Go (board game)

Duck! Duck! Go is an ingenious little game. The focus is entirely on the rubber ducks that are found in the box; six of them, to be precise, randomly selected in each box out of a range of 100 or so. For people who like collecting rubber ducks, this is the perfect game for you.

Power Grid Review
The philosophy of what is an ideal game has been discussed at length amongst board-gaming fans. Some like ones that are easy to learn and teach, but hard to master. In effect though I have always believed 'less is more.’

GMT Games' American Revolution series; a look back part #1

A couple of weeks ago I picked up a set of old historical wargames from grognard specialist, GMT Games. Over the next couple of days (or weeks, depending how long this takes) I’ll take a look at each of the games, if for no other reason than these kinds of games deserve far more attention.
