Blasting through the Spiel Essen 2023 small box noise like a double-barreled shotgun comes a new game from the double-barrel surnamed Phil Walker-Harding.
When is a city-builder, not a city-builder? When it’s an engine-builder. Point City is a quick, bright, and easy game about building a city.
Earth is the ideal game to play while you’re sitting around a table with people you like, having a chill time making little wooden towers.
Books of Time hit me right in the nostalgia. Not because I’ve played another game like it, because I’m not sure I have, but because of the sound.
I wonder how you’re meant to say the name of this game. Do I turn up to my local game group and say “Hey guys, who wants to play KAPOW!?”. I’d scare the crap out of them.
In Isle of Trains: All Aboard, you won’t be building tracks or buying and selling shares like in my other favourite choo-choo games. This is about the trains!
When you get Cytress setup on the table, there’s no denying it makes for an impressive sight. The modular boards, plastic tubes, and garish neon hues all scream “Cyberpunk, yo”.
SpaceCorp is a game of exploration, expansion, and exploiting the precious resources found on other planets and asteroids. In fact, I guess you could call it a 3X game, instead of a 4X, as there’s not much in the way of extermination going on.
Whirling Witchcraft is the latest in a proud line of games which let you build a tableau, your ‘engine’, on the table in front of you. Rival witches are aiming to wield magic so powerful that they simply overwhelm their neighbours, claiming victory in the process.
Arkosa, the new title from Toon Hammer, plonks you on the titular planet of Arkosa, and makes you try to get back off of it. You see, there’s an opportunity to get off this desert world, but only the most prestigious of colonies gets the ticket.
