A Christmas Story: A Major Card Game

I should start by saying I’m a sucker for nostalgia. I will give a lot of credit to Funko for finding ways to use that love to their advantage. I think it’s a pretty genius idea to come out with these card games. There are a few others and I’ve posted previously about Hocus Pocus….

Parks

Parks is beautiful game that I fell in love with immediately. Everything about the game is quality, the artwork is gorgeous and tokens are adorable. The game looks great on the table. I love hiking and this theme really shines through. The parks artwork gives you a feel for each park and got me excited…

Tiny Towns

Tiny Towns is one of those games I had heard a lot about but didn’t really jump out at me. Curiosity got the better of me and I picked up a copy to see for myself. After playing this a couple times I was pleasantly surprised, this game lives up to the hype. In the…

Merry Dissmas – The Family Holiday Party Game

The holidays are almost here and I am always looking for a game to bring out at the family dinners. When you get the family together there are a lot of different personalities and a game that takes a minute to explain usually goes over pretty well. There isn’t actually a lot to say about…

Campy Creatures

Campy Creatures is a game that’s been on my buy list for a while. It’s hard not to fall in love with this one. The artwork is unbelievable. I love everything about the look of this game, the cards are stunning and the characters are classic. The monster theme comes across really well, it’s definitely…

Smash Up

Smash up is a card game where you are trying to have the most power to control a base. The goal is to win 15 victory points before your opponents. For me what stands out in this card game is mixing the different factions. This game has a lot of expansions available with different factions…

Clueless The Party Game

When I saw this one at Target I had to buy it, I love Clueless and there was no way I would pass this one up. I do have some mixed feeling after playing it. The game basically consists of 4 mini games and I like three out of four of them. The theme shines…

Flashpoint Fire Rescue

Flashpoint is a cooperative game where you are working together to rescue trapped victims before the building collapses. Firefighters really do have to work at a team so a cooperative makes sense. Having the board be a floorplan with fire tokens really helps carry the theme well. The game looks good and is easy to…

Pitchstorm

Who doesn’t love a good movie? Pitchstorm is all about creating and pitching your own great film to an executive who might have their own ideas for the project. I love this type of party game, it’s easy enough to be playing in minutes and the executive notes add a good twist. Pitchstorm is a…

Kabuto Sumo

Kabuto Sumo is a game I have been searching for and finally found at a game store while on vacation. It did not disappoint. I love arcades and especially love coin pusher games. They are so satisfying so the idea that I could have that same feeling at home was really appealing. This game is…
