7 Wonders Duel – Pantheon Review
One of my favourite two-player games is 7 Wonder Duel. It manages take the 7 Wonders idea and make it in to a very tight, very fun two-player game. I was very excited when they announced an expansion for this wonderful game and rushed to the Repos booth when the game was released at Spiel.
Reviews Overview – January 2017
This is a summary of the five reviews I did the previous month. Some fun games were reviewed in January. A nice start of a new year.
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.

The worker placement mechanism combined with blind bidding and bluffing is very fun, very exciting. The magic cards add some chaos to the game and the rest of the game […]

First Class Review
Welcome to the Orient Express. We travel through exotic countries and doing so you can profit from all the luxurious services we offer. Some murder may occur, but, don’t worry, you will be fine. Probably. First Class is a train game. A train themed game. You’re not actually building routes on a board, like you often do in train games. They are giving you the impression of doing so, but it’s more a […]
