Competitive games with high interaction

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.

crescent moon box art

Crescent Moon Review

Wargames tend to do asymmetry best. Crescent Moon is the new kid on the block, moving the strategy to a non-specific Caliphate, somewhere out in the desert.

cloudspire box art

Cloudspire Review

With its roots firmly in the MOBA and Tower Defence genres of video games, Cloudspire aims to replicate the feel of a game like League of Legends, but in a tabletop form

Moonrakers Review

Maybe it’s a generational thing, but when I first heard of Moonrakers, I assumed it was something to do with the strangest James Bond film – Moonraker. It’s not though, it’s a deck-building semi-coop game from publisher IV Games, and it’s very clever.

las vegas royale box art

Las Vegas Royale Review

There’s something about seeing how far you can push the whims of Lady Luck, in a safe environment, that appeals to pretty much everyone.

amulet of thrayax box art

Amulet of Thrayax Preview

Not too many games put you in charge of your own cult. Fewer still task you with collecting the souls of the host city’s inhabitants by killing them all.

44 bce box art

44 BCE Preview

BCE 44 builds on the infamous events of the eponymous year when Julius Caesar was assassinated on the floor of the Senate, by a group of senators who worried that he had too much power over the empire

the gig box art

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.
