My First X-Wing Tournament, or How I Suck at Games

Star Wars X-Wing Tournament
Considering how much I like games of all kinds, boy do I suck at them. This last Sunday I took part in an X-Wing Tournament run by Worcester Wargames. Its only my second ever tournament of any kind (which is odd considering how many years I’ve been playing games), my first tournament being a Warmachine Tournament from last year. I may not have won, nor even come close but man did I enjoy it.

Is it a joke? The Cones of Dunshire returns to Kickstarter.

The Cones of Dunshire, is it a joke?
I really am struggling to work out if the Cones of Dunshire Kickstarter is a joke or not. The majority of the internet seems to be in agreement that it is a joke but if that’s the case, I’m not entirely sure that Mayfair Games are in on said joke.

The Next Great American Game Review

The Next Great American Game Review
“This is the next great American Game” It’s a phrase you hear a lot through this documentary which is coincidentally the name of the film. The Next Great American Game follows the journey of Randall Hoyt, a designer and artist who thinks he has in his possession the next board game to take America by storm. Randall is also bipolar and the documentary not only follows Randall’s journey into the world of hobby gaming, it also follows his ups and downs as he deals with his condition.

Halls of Terra Expansion for Relic

Halls of Terra Expansion for Relic
If you’re a member of the armed forces of the Imperium of Man, there’s a simple rule, don’t let those filthy Xenos or heretic scum anywhere near holy Terra. Unfortunately if you’re a player of Fantasy Flight’s Relic, you obviously haven’t been doing your job as the latest expansion heads to Earth.

Chaos & Alchemy Review

Chaos & Alchemy board game review
Whoever gave Chaos & Alchemy its name was right on the mark, Alchemy sums up the theme and aim of the game whereas chaos sums up how the game plays, complete and utter chaos.
