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….

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…

Clueless The Party Game

When I saw this one at Target I had to buy it, I love Clueless and there was no way I would pass this one up. I do have some mixed feeling after playing it. The game basically consists of 4 mini games and I like three out of four of them. The theme shines…

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…

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…

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…

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…
