Pandemic

Well I think at this point we are all a little too familiar with pandemics but if you ever felt like you and your friends could solve one yourself, this game is for you.  Pandemic is a classic as far as cooperative games go.  I hear amazing things about the pandemic legendary series but I…

Mysterium Park

Mysterium Park is basically a haunted amusement park that you will be investigating.  You are a physic who is going to communicate with the ghost to solve the mystery of their murder.  I’m not quite sure if this is considered a sequel to Mysterium but it is more streamlined and compact. For people who like…

Trogdor The Board Game

Well no doubt about it, this one was an impulse buy. I loved Homestar Runner and Trogdor was my favourite back in the day, so I bought this based on pure nostalgia. I was pleasantly surprised when I played the game and found I actually liked it. The idea of the game is you are…

Decktective – The Gaze of the Ghost

This tiny game packs a big punch. Decktective is an investigation game for 1 to 6 players aged 12 and up and takes about an hour play. Personally, I feel like 6 players would be way too many, I’d prefer playing solo or with 2 players. As for the gameplay, I can’t really say much…

Chronicles of Crime

Chronicles of Crime is a crime solving app assisted cooperative game. Working as a team you have to piece together the evidence and report your findings back to the police chief. The cases can get tough and its easy to run out of ideas and hit a dead end. However, the challenge is what makes…

The Mind Extreme

What’s New About the Extreme Version? Last year I was introduced to The Mind. I consider it to be the ultimate cottage or camping card game. Everyone I know has fallen in love with it. When I saw the extreme version, obviously I had to pick it up. If you’ve never played The Mind, I…

Unlock! Escape Adventures – Squeek & Sausage

I love escape rooms, but with the pandemic in our lives it doesn’t seem like I’ll be going back to one anytime soon. Luckily there’s a few different escape room game options to play at home. The first one I am trying is from the Unlock! series. They are pretty impressive and they seem to…

Nautilion

Nautilion is a beautiful game that can be played solo or as a cooperative game for two players. It’s ages 10 and up and takes about 30 minutes to play.  This is the first solo game I’ve wrote about and it’s a great one to start with. Before you even play the game, take in…

The Mind

The Mind is quickly becoming one of my absolute favourite games.  Its a card game for 2 to 4 players, ages 8 and up and takes roughly half an hour. Don’t let the simplicity fool you this one becomes tense pretty quickly. I brought this one to a cottage. It was definitely the hit of…

Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle is a deck building game for 2-4 players for ages 11 and up.  The first level takes roughly 30 minutes and each level takes longer from there. The theme just works.  It definitely keeps Harry Potter fans happy, but also you dont have to know the books or movies to play.   The game…
