Ka Pai

Ka Pai is a roll and write from first time designer, Mads Floe. I was lucky enough to catch up with him at Essen Spiel and grab a review copy from him, along with a pad of alternate scoring sheets.

RONE

RONE - Races of New Era is a strategic card game set in a post-apocalyptic world. It plays between two and four players and once you’ve got the swing of it should take between thirty and forty-five minutes to play. I have the second edition base box which is the base game along with the New Forces and Awakening expansions. There are a lot of cards in this box!

Pandoria

The people of the five realms have lived in peace for years. Elves, Mages, Dwarves, Halflings and Humans side by side, with, well, maybe a little competition! That is until the Goblin Hordes attacked, unleashing a devastating attack that led the remnants of the realm to flee by ship. And so, they discovered a new land, Pandoria.

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.

Adventure Game series

We love escape rooms and consequently love the EXIT series, Unlock adventures and we’re almost at the end of Journal 29 (that reminds me, we need to go back to that!) So when we heard about the Adventure Game series, we were excited!

We had the opportunity to play Glen More II: Chronicles from Funtails at Spiel '19. We didn't have any sound and the video would have been an hour of thoughtful play, so here's some quick footage of how the the rondel works. Checkout I Play Red on...
