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…

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…

Darkridge Reunion

I should start by saying Darkridge isn’t for everyone and this isn’t the type of game you will probably pick out on a whim. This is more of an experience. Now the idea of a murder mystery party surprisingly comes up a lot but it always like a bit too much work and they are…

High Society

In High Society, you are members of the elite.  Throughout this game, you are trying to show your status and prestige by collecting points.  This is a game from the 90s that I had never heard of but fortunately got a chance to play and loved it immediately.  High Society is an extremely quick and…

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…

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…

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…
