Walkthroughs

Board game walkthroughs for upcoming releases, kickstarter projects and classic games.

Ecos

OK, so we’re a sucker for a game with an animal theme (yes, especially cats) and this has big cats so we’re in! In Ecos players are creating the planet together, but quite often with different ideals! Simultaneous play means no downtime, just a lot of fun to be had!

Masters of Renaissance

When you say card game, you generally think of a small box, cheap, cheerful, with quick play. This is not that sort of game! In fact, I think Cranio Creations have done it a disservice by calling it so! There’s a fair bit to this game and I think it actually has less cards than the Lorenzo board game!

Dark Star Rising

First, the most important rule of this game: you must hum The Imperial March the whole time whilst playing! OK, we ended up just playing the soundtrack to Rogue One instead but it was fun to see if anyone would! We’re huge Star Wars fans in this house so we had to give this a try, even though I was disappointed you were working against Darth Vader.

What we've played.

Obviously, we've brought lots of games back from Essen and it can be quite daunting and difficult to know where to start. Here are a few of the ones we've played since we got back.

Spiel 19, Essen

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, no, Christmas is months away! It’s Internationale Spieltage aka Essen or Spiel, the biggest gaming convention in the world. With over 209,000 visitors, 1,200 exhibitors and over 1,500 new releases. This was our seventh year and each year we watch it grow bigger. It’s also great to see games from all over the world. This year included booths from Indonesia, Iran and Taiwan to name a few.

Spiel 2019, Essen - ESSENtial Releases

I've thought hard about this year's must have releases and it gets tougher every year. I boiled it down to 10 must have purchases I'm going to pick up.
