Chopstick Dexterity MegaChallenge 3000 Game Review

CDMC 3000 designed by Greg Lam and published by Mayday Games is the perfect execution of an idea – “What if we made a game where you played with Chopsticks?” A blast of fun for 2-3 players with solid components – highly recommended.

Targi Game Review

Targi is a fabulous, 2-player game by Andreas Steiger and published by Z-Man Games. It is a worker placement and set collection game, but mixes things up by using intersection points between your vertical and horizontal Targis (on the perimeter) to control inner squares. Tribe cards and resources layer in perfectly to create a great, euro-style, 2-player game.

Quartex Game Review

Quartex, designed by Tim W.K. Brown and published by CSE Games, is abstract tile matching game where you compete with other player to score the most points by completing symbols on the ties. Double sided tiles, limited combinations, and an interesting scoring mechanic make this a step up puzzle game that puts your brain to work. Think of it as a competitive version of Cirplexed! For 2-5 players.

Anomia Game Review

Anomia is a fabulous, fast-paced party game designed by Andrew Innes and published by Anomia Press. The premise is simple – name a person, place, or thing from the category on another player’s card before they can name one from yours. Part of the delight is enjoying how bad our brains fail in quick-think, high-pressure moments. 3-6 players recommended, but can easily support a few more.

Rise! Game Review

Rise! a Kickstarter game designed by Michael Coe and published by Crash Games is an abstract tower building, territory control, strategy game with a whole bunch else mixed in. There is an amazing amount of depth and play in this 2 player, 20 minute game that might just be the first Torres / Go hybrid! Well worth picking up (if you can find it).

Diamonds Game Review

Diamonds, designed by Mike Fitzgerald and published by Stronghold Games is an outstanding take on traditional trick taking games like Hearts and Spades. It blows my mind that there never was a Diamonds game made with a traditional set of cards. The inclusion of specific suit abilities adds a fun layer to the usual planning and strategy around trick play order and hand management. Nice game to introduce an old generation of non-gamers into your play sessions.

Biblios Dice Game Review

Steve Finn was kind enough to send me the Biblios Dice prototype and I quickly fell in love with this game. It isn’t what most people would consider a “dice” version of a game, nor does it suddenly convince me Monks are cool(see my Biblios review: http://bit.ly/EdoBib), but it is a brilliant design, fun to play, and filled with great player interaction and decision making. The core mechanic, Dice drafting works extremely well as does the auction and track mechanics.

I hope this Kickstarter Preview was helpful! Let me know if you want to see more. Please subscribe, share, and check out my other reviews.

Fungi Game Review

Fungi (also know as Morels) by Brent Povis is a 2-deck, 2-player strategy card game where you are trying to make delicious Mushroom dishes in the forest. Don’t let the theme deceive you though, Fungi is a fantastic and unique blend of card drafting, hand management and set matching. Great filler before or between other games.
