Project L

Project L is a game that drew me in with it’s tetris like pieces. The game doesn’t really play like tetris at all, but it does have puzzle quality to it. The components of the game are great, I love the recessed boards and the plastic shapes. It’s very sleek. The game itself is pretty…

Everdell

Everdell is a beautiful woodland themed game about critters creating cities in the woods. This game has a large table presence, the look and feel of the game is gorgeous. At first I thought the tree was a bit gimmicky but it really makes the game pop. The components are great, I especially love the…

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…

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…

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…

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…
