In today’s episode we discuss the fiery hot board game: Dragoon.

It’s one of the lighter games that we own and we have had a lot of fun playing it.

(Except Alison can’t really win. So she hasn’t had ‘a lot’ of fun!)

Listen to find out more about what we think of the components, game play and whether Justin thinks he should buy more games like this from Lay Waste Games.

Welcome to Episode 10 of Hot Game Magnet.

Today we review Village Attacks, by Grimlord Games. A game which is a bit like Zombicide, but you are a monster and you are protecting the castle heart.

We played this game extensively to bring you an awesome and well informed review.

As a co-operative game it was great fun to strategize together, in order to protect the evil lair against innocent civilians.

We love this game for so many reasons, but we realise it isn’t without fault. Listen to the show for the full review, as we cover game play, components, replay-ability, scenarios and art. We also talk about all the expansions we have, and whether we think they are worthy.

Welcome to Episode 9 of Hot Game Magnet. Today we discuss our old favourite game: The Others, by Eric Lang for Cool Mini Or Not. This game is awesome and is probably our most played game.

The Other’s is supposed to be a one versus many game, but who are we kidding, we usually play all our games by ourselves.

In this episode we talk about the characters, mechanics, replay ability and how to win without corrupting your soul.

Get your dice tower ready, because you are going to need it, in this Sins Versus the Heroes game.

Episode 6: Blood Rage

In today’s episode we discuss one of our favourite board games: Blood Rage! It’s first in a series of Eric Lang games that we will be reviewing. Well, because we’re a bit obsessed and think he makes pretty awesome games.

Blood Rage is cool on so many levels. It’s quick to set up, has a cool theme and isn’t too heavy. It can make your blood boil a bit though. It’s so frustrating losing at games all the time. Just as well with this game the losing streaks are never permanent.

In this episode we talk about components, game play and replay-ability.
