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…

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…

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…

UNO

This post is about another classic, UNO. I think at some point in everyone’s life they’ve come across UNO. This plays a lot like a regular card game, it’s easy to take anywhere and the rules are straight forward. When I think of UNO, I think of cottages or camping, somewhere you want to play…

Here to Slay

Here to Slay is a game where you are creating a group of Heroes to slay some monsters while avoiding enemies.  There are two ways to win, either be the first player to Slay 3 Monsters or be the first to have a full Party of six different classes. This is a 30 minute game…
