I remember, back in the early 90s, when Sid Meier's Civilisation came out for the PC. This was me falling in love with Civ games! My first sighting of tech trees and civilisation advancements. So, a few years later I still love civ games and I’m happy that’s something that’s translated over to board games well. However, they can also be the sort of game that takes a civilisation to play and comes with so many pieces you feel like you’ve aged an epoch before you’ve even got started!
Walk the Path of Enlightenment that runs through the Vadoran Gardens whilst taking time to water the flowers, feed the animals and clean the ancient relics. Vadoran Gardens is a tile (card) laying city building game that is set in the same world as City of Kings. In some ways, these games couldn’t be further apart as City of Kings is a sprawling, co-operative, role-playing game whereas Vadoran Gardens is a small, competitive card game.
I don’t dislike social deduction games, after all, we love Shadow
Hunters I dislike the need for huge numbers of players, apps and all the
organisation that goes with it. Noises at Night is a super fun social deduction
game that plays with between 2 and 4 players in just 20 minutes. It even plays
great at just two players!
Wednesday 22nd May, I got up at an unholy hour to make my way to the airport. I was off to HeavyCon V, this time it was in the more convenient (for me!) location of Boston which meant a seven-hour flight rather than the thirteen hour one I had endured for HeavyCon III!
It's almost that time again. There's lots to see at the Expo this

setup and first day of the event but I'm hoping to check out the following and more over the two busier days of the event. Let me know what you're looking

We had the opportunity to visit Dice Portsmouth, UK at the end of last year for an afternoon of gaming with our friends from Games Quest. It's definitely in our top 3 Board Game Cafes that we've visited.
