Kingdomino Origins

As I start this post I should say I have never played Kingdomino or Queendomino so I can’t really compare them to this version. Actually I have never had interest in either game but I found a copy of Kingdomino Origins on sale and thought I’d give it a go. Turns out this is an…

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….

Klask

If you like air hockey you are going to love Klask, it really feels like you are bringing an arcade game home and it even fits on a table. The board looks small and the game seems easy but staying into control and not ending up in your own goal can be extremely tough. This…

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…

Hocus Pocus Tricks and Wits

Hocus Pocus Tricks and Wits is a Funko Card game. I have a few of these games and will write about more over Christmas. These games are small, low priced and usually themed on movies. This one is obviously based on the movie Hocus Pocus. To be honest, these aren’t really my go to games….

Ticket to Ride

Ticket to ride is considered a modern classic and it earns that title. This game is really successful with various different versions available with maps from all over the world. I recommend it for any game collection because it appeals a large audience. Playing this reminds me of board games I played when I was…

Calico

Well if there was ever a theme made for me, cats and quilts is it. In Calico, you are trying to make the best quilt and to attract cats. This is a tile puzzle game that is easy to play but also kind of tricky to get the points you want. I appreciate that there…

Snake Oil

I definitely have a soft spot for these creative card games. Snake Oil is a game where you are inventing a product and selling to a specific customer. This game is good for three to ten players and takes about half an hour to play. The game says 10 and up, but I’m fairly sure…

Pitch Car Mini

I haven’t seen this game in stores for years so when I saw it I had to pick up a copy. This is the mini version so its smaller than the original but it is the same idea. This game has been around for a while and there are a lot of different expansions to…

Throw Throw Burrito

Throw Throw Burrito is a game that combines cards and throwing things. Something I didn’t know I wanted and turns out I definitely needed. I love this one, it’s made by the same people that brought us exploding kittens. I love that it keeps that style but has completely different gameplay, it’s fresh and it’s…
