We're back, with even more card game flavor!
RIGHT, SO, we took a bit of a break because we MOVED! We weren't totally planning on taking a break, but between the busy-ness of it all, and the lack of internet for multiple weekends in a row, it just sort of worked out that way. ANYWAY, Tee got all wrapped up into Marvel's fancy TCG, and decided to spend an episode trying to convince Chris to play it. Is she successful? Probaably not. But you'll have to listen to know for sure!
Same Munchkin, but with a Dark Knight twist...
There are a LOT of types of Munchkin - some work better than others, for sure, but this one is a pretty solid iteration of the fan-favorite game. With custom art, the traditional playful silliness, and a deep understand of what makes Batman so weird, this is a version definitely worth picking up.
Let's get ready to roll!
If you listened to our end of the year "Best of" episode, you know that Chris's favorite board game of the year was Marvel Dice Throne. Well, now you get to find out why it's so great! From its portability, to its quick pace, to its easy to grasp gameplay, this is one of those games you'll want to pick up for the family ASAP!
How they gonna do that to Mr. Freeze, huh?
Gotham's missing a Batman in the new DC video game, but that's not the only thing this game is lacking. A very mid- experience; it has some high points in interesting crafting & crime-stopping, but some really low points in villain development and boss fights. Should you spend a lot on it? Probably not. But it might be worth a pick up on a steep Black Friday sale.
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!
