Horrified Review

The brain you stole, Fritz. Think of it. The brain of a dead man waiting to live again in a body I made with my own hands! Dr Frankenstein gave life to one of the all-time classic movie monsters in the 1931 version of Frankenstein. In Horrified, by Ravensburger, players have to work together to bring down the monster, along with his bride!

Vast: The Mysterious Manor Review

Spooky is a great word. It conjures up images of ghosts, ghouls, monsters and horror, but does it through the lens of something safe and fun. It’s kid-friendly, it’s all things Scooby-Doo, and it’s one of my favourite feelings. Vast: The Mysterious Manor aims to recreate that feeling in the poster child for all things spooky – a haunted mansion.

I recently heard about a new escape room experience, an entirely web-based one called Webscapade, and was invited to come along and play.

Scythe Review

Scythe is Stonemaier Games’ Euro-in-mechs-clothing game from 2016. It’s a game that’s been riding high in the BGG charts since its release, so it’s about time I gave it a proper review.

Ragusa Review

Ragusa is a meaty Euro game from Braincrack Games and designer Fabio Lopiano. Players are developing the titular city, generating the precious commodities of the day, trading, importing and developing the city walls.

Venice Review

I’m of a particular generation that can’t see a gondola without singing “Just one Cornetto….” in my head, thanks to TV advertising in the 80s. Fortunately, thanks to the Venice board game, I now picture little cubes instead. It’s a start.

PARKS Review

Update: Video review included.

Have you ever wanted to wander the trails around America’s National Parks? Take some photographs, enjoy the weather, and take in the sights? If, like me, that’s a fantasy for you, there is an alternative – the PARKS board game, by Keymaster Games
