Money Can Buy You a Concert! Or not!

A Symphony No. 9 Review When I knew this game was going to be released in Essen 2018, I was so excited by the theme alone. It has fresh take with its theme and very unlikely among other games. It was published by Moaideas Game Design by the designer Frank Liu and Hung-Yang Shen, all…

Welcome to Abstract Island!

Dokmus Review Do you share your love for some abstract? I for one, don’t love abstract games in general. I found them to be uninteresting, lack of compelling reason and bland as boredom. Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t say that abstract games are not good, some of them are good (if not great),…

How Greed Are You? The Game

Thief’s Market Review This game was launched on Kickstarter by Tasty Minstrel Games, designed by Dave Chalker. It’s a small box game, for 3-5 players. But don’t be fooled, the game is not “small” at all. At first this caught my interest because of the price was cheap and the shipping was so affordable. So…

Racing with Feld

The Oracle of Delphi Review Stefan Feld’s latest new game after The Castles of Burgundy Card Game and Jorvik (while technically Jorvik is just an implementation of Speicherstadt).

That Rush of Blood Up to Your Head

Blood Rage Review Eric M. Lang is a great designer, no doubt about that. He has his own fans, to say the least. One notorious work He had done is Chaos in The Old World and damn, its so friggin’ amazing. I love it, not just because the theme, but the asymmetrical aspect of the…
