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…

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…

More Dude

I found this game on sale and would have preferred of the original Dude but that wasn’t available. Good news is this plays exactly like the dude game, just with different cards. This game also plays almost exactly like Happy Salmon, which is one of my favourite games, so I was pretty excited to try…

MTV The Throwback Music Party Game

I love everything about music so when I found out about this game, I went looking for it. This was surprisingly hard in Canada, I did see it in any stores eventually found it online. Needless to say, I am really excited. This game plays almost identically to Blockbuster, the movie game I absolutely love….

Wits and Wagers Party

I was really excited to try Wits and Wagers but didn’t end up liking it as much as I thought I would. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot I do like about the game, the questions were fun and interesting. I liked being able to vote on other answers as well, but it did…

Scattergories

Time to look at another classic game. We are back to word games and today will discuss Scattergories. Now this isn’t a game I play often but it is always well received and as far as I’m concerned it’s timeless. This is kind of a perfect family game night to play with young and old….

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…
