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


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.
