Yokohama Review

Voor wie het spel Istanbul wel eens gespeeld heeft kan het spelidee van Yokohama je bekend voorkomen. Een beetje dan, want het is ook weer heel anders.

Near and Far Review

  Near and Far van alleskunner Ryan Laukat en zijn eigen Red Raven Games is een spel met een verhaal. Het is een spel waar het verhaal centraal staat, maar ook weer niet. Wat jij wil eigenlijk.  English summary below.   Open je de doos dan vind je een heleboel, maar de belangrijkste onderdelen zijn het dikke verhalenboek en het iets minder dikke kaartenboekwerk.

Targi: Die Erweiterung Review

Too ambitious if you’d ask me. Too many components, an unclear rulebook and […]

Great Western Trail Review

We are cowboys in the old west. No guns, no duelling, we just bring cows from our ranch, along the Great Western Trail, to Kansas City to sell. All day, every day.

Murano Review

In Inka & Markus Brand’s game Murano, which is a group of small islands near Venice, you are businessmen and glass is your business. Making glass and selling it. Will you become a successful glassblower, a clever salesman, or both?
