Walkthroughs

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

Raccoon Tycoon

Fact: I get told off for getting games purely because they have cats in them! If a game has a cat on the cover or in the game, I end up with it! A lot of the time these games are rubbish. I have been told I am not allowed any more cat games without doing research into the actual game. Fact: Raccoon Tycoon is a game with cats that is good!

Blue Lagoon

I love Reiner Knizia and I love Blue Orange so when I saw a prototype of this game back in February, I was super excited. I have been waiting (im)patiently to see the finished result and was rather happy to grab a copy at Essen Spiel!

Doomseeker

There’s an influx of Warhammer licensed games on the market at the moment with mixed reviews. As an ex 40K player I thought it was about time to have a look so grabbed a copy of Doomseeker from Ninja Division.

Board Game Advent Calender

This year I have failed to buy an Advent Calender and then realised we have one sat in our front room. 25 cubes, ok it will be 24 days until Christmas Day. But we can get a game on the big day too. What is the fun of an advent calender? Well, of course it's spending forever trying to find the right door number whilst trying desperately to contain our desire for chocolate that is ok at best.

Spiel 2018, Essen - What colour do you play?

This was our sixth year at Essen, and I see so many regular faces be they designers, publishers, fellow content creators and friends alike year on year that this was a perfect opportunity for a fun project. I hope you enjoy it.

BGG.CON 2018

29 plays of 25 different games over 6 days can only mean one thing! Yup, it’s BGG Con time. Not only do I get to hang out with some of my favourite people that I only see once a year, but I get to sit and play games for days with no interruption from working in any capacity.

Photos of games I play, conventions I attend and places I go and occasionally cats.
