Board Game App Review: Aeon’s End

7/10 Technically competent if lacking presentation Available on:Steam for PC — $14.99Apple/Google Play — $9.99 This week, I’m reviewing several different board game apps. These reviews are primarily looking at the quality of the app and content. Previous reviews: Scythe Tokaido Lords of Waterdeep Aeon’s End is another I’ve not played in person. It hadn’tContinue reading “Board Game App Review: Aeon’s End”

These reviews are primarily looking at the quality of the app and content.

Board Game App Review: Tokaido

9/10 A personal favorite, but others can expect caveats Available on:Steam for PC – $9.99Apple and Google Play – $1.99 This week, I’m reviewing several different board game apps. These reviews are primarily looking at the quality of the app and content. The first review featured Scythe (click here). Tokaido was one of the earlierContinue reading “Board Game App Review: Tokaido”

Board Game App Review: Scythe

8/10 A solid adaptation and an easy recommendation Available on:Steam and GOG for PC – $19.99Apple and Google Play – $8.99 I’ve been playing more board game apps lately, in part because some were on sale during the recent Steam winter sale. I also have some that were bought previously. Most of these, I’ve onlyContinue reading “Board Game App Review: Scythe”

Solo Session Report: Nusfjord

I bought Nusfjord last year but haven’t played in a while. I’ve been hard at work the past couple of days and needed a relaxing break, and few games evoke a relaxing atmosphere like Nusfjord. It took a bit to re-read the rules and clear the rust, but it’s not a heavy game, and IContinue reading “Solo Session Report: Nusfjord”

Board Game Review: Magic: The Gathering Arena

8/10 Generous for free players but a heavy barrier for new players Magic: The Gathering Arena is the latest digital implementation of Magic: The Gathering, introduced in 2018. I’m not sure it’s possible for a human to find themselves on this page and not know what Magic: The Gathering is, but in case an alienContinue reading “Board Game Review: Magic: The Gathering Arena”

Board Game Session Report: Legend of the Five Rings (solo)

I drooled over this game for years, and the core box has been dirt-cheap on Amazon for a good year or two now. FFG did eventually make a solo/coop expansion but printed maybe 5 copies that instantly sold out and they don’t seem to be reprinting L5R anymore, so if you want it, it’s aContinue reading “Board Game Session Report: Legend of the Five Rings (solo)”

Board Game Session Report: Runebound 2nd Edition (solo)

I’ve never done a comprehensive review for Runebound 2nd Edition, but I’ll probably make one soon. It’ll be long and rambly, for sure, because this is still my favorite board game after a good 10 years in the hobby. And part of that is because I’ve used it as a design playground, making and tryingContinue reading “Board Game Session Report: Runebound 2nd Edition (solo)”

Board Game Session Report: Railways of Nippon, Tokaido + Crossroads Expansion

I’m behind again on posts, in large part due to Final Fantasy XIV. But let’s talk board games! We’ve recently had to go back into partial lockdown while waiting for boosters for the more vulnerable people in our house, but prior to that, we played Railways of Nippon (a stand-alone release in the Railways ofContinue reading “Board Game Session Report: Railways of Nippon, Tokaido + Crossroads Expansion”

Board Game Sessions and First Impressions: DinoGenics (+expansion) and Kanban EV

I’m behind on posts due to extra work the past couple of weeks. Recently, we played DinoGenics with the expansion (Controlled Chaos) and then Kanban EV. DinoGenics + Controlled Chaos I’ve previously reviewed the base game, which, in short, is fun but nothing unique. The theme really helps it stand out. So we were reallyContinue reading “Board Game Sessions and First Impressions: DinoGenics (+expansion) and Kanban EV”
