cubitos box art

Cubitos Review

Cubitos is a racing game from John D. Clair (Dead Reckoning, Mystic Vale, Space Base) and Alderac, which mixes frenetic jockeying for position with bag-building.

klask box

Klask Review

It makes me enormously happy – smug, almost – to say that Klask isn’t just good in the context of “for a poor man’s crokinole”. It’s just brilliant.

the quest for el dorado box art

The Quest for El Dorado Review

Designer extraordinaire – Reiner Knizia – created this deck-building game of exploration and adventure. Does it scratch that mosquito bite yearning for jungle escapades?

long shot box art

Long Shot: The Dice Game Review

Las Vegas Royale Review

The Gig Preview

The Gig is a new mixture of genres to me. When it comes to board games, regular readers know I love roll- or flip-and-writes. While I’ve tried lots of different kinds, I’ve never played one with a real-time element.

cryptid box art

Cryptid: Urban Legends Review
