Slapagories

I have a very soft spot for quick games and with good reason, they are easy to get people interested, the set up is fast and its takes nothing to explain the rules to get started. Scattegories is a great classic, but sometimes you want something a bit lighter, faster and with a tiny bit…

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…

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…

Jungle Speed

I’ve owned a copy of Jungle Speed for over 10 years. I remember playing it at a game night, before I really started building a collection and buying it almost immediately after. At that point as a non gamer, that was fairly significant. Now I’ll buy a game without thinking twice, I’m at the game…

The Classics – Sorry!

The Classics – Yahtzee!

The first Classic game to review is obviously Yahtzee. I have been playing Yahtzee as long as I can remember. Whenever we would visit my grandparents there was always a game and I loved it. It was so great for quality time and it gave me a lot of good memories. So I might be a…
