Raid & Trade board game review

When the apocalypse arrives us gamers are going to be very prepared. Whether it's fighting zombies or curing diseases we'll have played enough games set in the post-apocalyptic wasteland that we'll know exactly what to do and Raid and Trade is another game that can train you up for the worst.

Set in the remains of a once great city, you will venture forth from a central base, raiding dwellings, gathering junk and crafting items in a hope to gain entry into the Golden City. It's kind of like a board game version of Fallout 4 but without the 50s Americana.

Piratoons board game review

There are two kinds of pirates; the yo-ho-ho, bottle of rum cartoon pirates and the real life murderous thieves. Thankfully Piratoons is well into the cartoon version as you compete with other pirates to make the best possible pirate ship.

Piratoons is an auction and set collection game, you will have a short auction over a limited number of ship components and then at the end of the game you will score points based on a number of criteria; such as biggest ship, most sales, prettiest ship and collecting full sets of crew, canons and cabins.
cool mini or not bloodborne board game news

Update: Added a link to Erig Lang's Twitter where he made the announcement.

Original article: At the time of writing this article I am 30 hours into the Bloodborne video game. 30 hours of despair, swearing and nearly throwing my controller at the TV. 30 hours of fighting beasts and barely surviving fights with an electrified werewolf the size of a house. And I have enjoyed every minute so I am really excited that Cool Mini or Not and Eric Lang have announced a Bloodborne board game.

T.I.M.E Stories: A Prophecy of Dragons Review

A Prophecy of Dragons is the second expansion, and therefore third adventure module for T.I.M.E Stories, and while T.I.M.E Stories remains one of my favourite games of 2015 and one of the best cooperative game experiences to date, A Prophecy of Dragons is by far the worst adventure for the system and its approach to rules and story threaten to undo all the great work accomplished by Asylum and The Marcy Case.

I will try and keep this review as spoiler free as possible; however some mild spoilers will come out in the discussion.
FAITH The Sci-Fi RPG Interview

You may remember last year I spoke to Spanish game developer Burning Games, the team behind FAITH The Sci-Fi RPG.
