The Climbers Review

The Climbers, van Holger Lanz en 999 Games, is een fantastisch abstract spel waar jij en je tegenstanders de hoogte in gaan. Hoger en hoger klim je. Ben je de hoogste klimmer aan het einde van het spel, dan win je. Eenvoudig, maar oh zo leuk.

Azul Review

Je kent ze wel die geinige blauwe vloertegeltjes met die gekke patroontjes. In Azul probeer je van die bontgekleurde Portugese tegeltjes een stijlvolle vloer te maken en dit is lastiger dan je denkt.

I just decided that all the games from my top 50 that haven’t got a full or quick review need one too. So, today I start with a quick review of Tigris & Euphrates from Reiner Knizia, designed in 1997 and recently re-published by Fantasy Flight Games.

Lumis: Der Pfad des Feuers Review

In this game you try to connect two sides of the board with a path of fire pieces in your colour. You can play a two-player game or play the team versus team game. Can you take […]

One Play Post: Number Eight

Rielekst is publishing three two-player abstract titles under the label epstRekt and I had the pleasure of playing two of them during the latest edition of the Spellenspektakel (a Dutch board game fair) and I like to discuss them briefly in One Play Post: Number Eight. The first one is Samsara from designer Thomas Weber. In this game you try to get as many marbles in your hole at your side of the board. […]
