Blood Rage Review

I’m a little late. I know. It’s not a new game. I know. There are already more than a hundred reviews of this game on bgg. Yes, I know. However, I still would like to give you my opinion about Blood Rage, a game from Eric M. Lang and CMON Limited. A game of broad-shouldered men and an unhealthy collection of underboob. A Viking saga where dying in battle is the most glorious thing you can do.

They replied, “Let us start rebuilding.” So they began this good work. These […]

The just annexed states still think they should be independent nations and in ZhanGuo, a game from Marco Canetta and Stefania Niccolini, it’s your task to contribute to the process of unifying the empire, by appointing governors, introducing law, currency and writing in the Warring […]

Eight-Minute Empire: Legends Review

Overview: The story: It’s been a fine day. No rain and the sheep have been grazing carelessly for hours. Their bellies full. Well, now it’s my turn. The boy took a loaf of bread, a piece of cheese and a small knife from his knapsack and made himself comfortable on a rock halfway up the hill.
