Three for the price of 1! This week we discuss what’s hot on on our game table this past week, what’s hot on Kickstarter right now, and HotGameMagnets hot new game Push Poo!
Sometimes its nice to play a game that’s all about the endeavour to push the limits of what humanity can achieve in science and exploration. Most importantly, it’s nice to do it better than your opponents. Godspeed, by Pandasaurus games; a game that’s not so much about achieving greatness on an alien world as it is about doing it first and for the glory of your chosen nation.
It’s always been a dream of ours to be locked in the house with all the time in the world to play as many board games as we want. Maybe we should have been careful what we wished for. Maybe we should be grateful that we have so many options to entertain ourselves during a global pandemic. The important thing is that we have lots to talk about in our latest episode.
The woodland creatures are not alright. For us, that okay because waging war between the highly asymmetrical factions of ROOT never gets old. Especially now with the new Underworld and Clockwork expansions that bring two new factions, two new maps and a whole forest of automated enemies to make solo, and two player games a richer more fun experience.
While we are holed up in self isolation, we have been able to play a lot of games. However, this episode is all about games to come. There may be a global pandemic but Kickstarter is still going strong, so this week we round up a few of the games currently up on Kickstarter that look the most promising.
The next chapter in IDW’s board game adaptation of IDW’s comic book reboot of the massive hit; Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
We discuss our old favourite game- Feudum, and their latest expansion Rudders and Ramparts. (Why is it not called Boats and Castles? Who knows.)
Getting expansions for our favorite games means we get to play them more and review them again. Does Blood Rage stay on the top of our list of most favorite games, or do the extra rules cause it to be slightly lowered in our esteem?
Justin always said he would go to hell before he played a game with chibi’s. Luckly, Arcadia Quest: Inferno, allows him to do both! We live in a golden time!
Next Move games has released it’s latest version of the hit game Azul. As with previous versions, 2 to 4 players use math and strategy to be the tile layer that most pleases Portugal’s 16th century king Manuel I. Is a third version of Azul one too many? Perhaps, just like it’s name sake, you can never have too many shades of a beautiful color.
