A new take on the Star Wars Saga we can all get behind...
The newest edition to the Lego game saga is here, and it's a new take on old classics with the definitive Skywalker collection. Fun, family-friendly, and plenty of variety, this game has something for everybody.
An absolute classic, made even better with smart details.
It's an oldie, but a goodie, and now it's getting a definitive edition! Thanks to Kickstarter, we got a sneak peek at the new design and cool changes made to one of our all-time favorite board games. If you haven't played Sentinels, you are REALLY missing out.
Some of us are much better at losing together.
When was the last time you had a really great time playing a board game, DESPITE losing... a lot? We played this game a bunch of times, lost EVERY time, and STILL are ready to play it again. That's gotta be the best recommendation for a game, right?
A totally tubular romp through the stars.
It's been a hot minute since we've had a Powered Gaming! While we went in with relatively low expectations (we can only play as Starlord? really?), the resulting game from Eidos-Montreal was incredibly fun (despite the sometimes game-breaking bugs). A great depiction of characters we know and love, this is one we're glad we put on our to-play list.
Not gonna lie, the power is pretty fun to wield...
We're away on a MUCH needed vacation, but we made sure to get a new episode ready to go during our break! We had the chance to sit down and play the Marvel-themed Love Letter iteration centered around the Infinity Gauntlet and Thanos, and it's super fun! A quick, lively romp (and Tee won twice!), you won't be disappointed when you pick this one up.
This game made us gasp and cheer and all the things!
Holy heck, this game is FANTASTIC! A relatively recent release from Unexpected Games, this board game mixes mystery tropes, comics, engaging characters, creative gameplay and well-placed surprises to be one of the most fun games we've played in a long time. But hey, we'll get into all that. In the meantime, what are you waiting for? Go get this game!
Kamala Khan deserves ALL the screen time.
Surprise! It's us, from the past, talking to you, in the present... our future... or... okay, we forgot to post it last week. But hey, here we are with our review of the relatively recently released Marvel's Avengers (we played on PS4). We lay out what's good, what's not as good, and our hope for what they can do to make it better. Also, can we please get a little more hype for a game focused on Kamala Khan? She. Is. Awesome.
A game that's fun, challenging, but not punishing.
Time for another gaming review to help you get through stay-at-home! These week we're talking about the cooperative card game game, Marvel Champions; a surprisingly balanced, easy-to-learn living card game featuring your favorite Marvel heroes. Even if you're not into the big-name card games (like your Magics or Yu-Gi-Ohs), this is an excellent option if you're looking to kill an hour or so.
A villainous take on the traditional Talisman!
Are fantasy games not your bag? Looking for a game that's competitive but not TOO competitive? Ever wish you could go wreck Arkham Asylum and ruin Batman's day? We have a game for you!
Talisman: Batman Super-Villains Edition is a new take on the traditional Talisman game with interesting game design and cool art. It's not without it's flaws (ring balance can definitely be an issue), but game isn't? Find out how our game went (and who won... obviously) in our newest edition of Powered Gaming!
Stress has never been so fun!
The premiere of our brand-new segment, Powered Gaming! We'll be bringing you reviews and critiques of board games, card games, video games, and all other playable goodies from the nerd realm. This week, we played the super-fun but super-stressful card game '5-Minute Marvel.' Perfect for those with little time but nerves of steel!
