Rainbow Rage from Big Potato Games is a fairly simple party game which requires players to be observant and incredibly quick. However, depending on your familiarity with everyone's favourite Spring-time phenomenon, you'll either love or hate Rainbow Rage.

Dream Home

Dream Home Tabletop Review

With countless games out there about adventuring in a medieval fantasy land or shooting space men with space guns, it's a nice change of pace to play interior designer. Even if you're awful at it.

Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space Ultimate Edition Review

Scurrying footsteps echo in the sector ahead. A smile full of pointed teeth spreads across an alien face and I blast into the room shredding the puny human apart. Well, I meant to. It turns out that one of the guys playing was bluffing so well that I thought he was a human. Instead of infecting a human I've actually just killed a fellow alien. Looking up from my map I see an unimpressed face looking back at me. My bad.

The Ravens of Thri Sahashri Review

The Ravens of Thri Sahashri is a beautiful co-op card game for two players. It's about a boy Feth trying to help the girl he loves wake from a coma. Ren is a young girl who lost her entire family to a plague and was sold as a courtesan apprentice, she met the son of a merchant, Feth, and they fell in love. The two escaped their lives to be together with the help of an elder courtesan who was killed as the two escaped. Wracked with guilt, Ren fell into a coma and now you have to take the role of the young lovers as Feth uses his ability to read the hearts of others to reach into her mind and try to wake Ren. Her mind is a wasteland of sad memories where Ren's song of poetry is being drowned out by the cawing of ravens.

Jungle Speed is a party game that ticks all the right boxes for being a game you should consider talking to a party. From it’s quick and easy set up to its 10-15 minute run time, it’s a game that requires you to think fast and react faster as up to 10 players can join in on the fun.

Codenames Review – “Tomato Two”

Codenames is one of those games you have to actually play in order to understand the rules. Upon receiving our copy of the game and playing a handful of games, I couldn't wait to tell friends about it. The only problem is, actually explaining the game without any references is pretty difficult.

Star Wars: Imperial Assault Review

The two rebel heroes are nearing the cell where I have a rebel spy incarcerated. It's a long corridor and it's covered by a tripod laser machine gun. Three Stromtroopers are guarding the corner between the cell and the Rebel's escape route and they're backed up by two Royal Guards. For the first time in eight missions I think that I'm finally going to get a win under my belt. But no, one of the guys sitting opposite me rifles through his inventory and throws a Thermal Detonator or something - whatever, it's a space grenade. There's a one in six chance this dice roll will make the rest of this mission a walk over.
ODINSRAVENS7

Odin’s Ravens (Second Edition) Review

Every morning Odin the Allfather sends his two ravens Huginn and Muninn around the world to bring back news on how things are going on Earth. After thousands of years of circumnavigating the globe every morning the two ravens have gotten a little competitive and turned it into a race.
BURGLEBROS2

Burgle Bros Review

Three safes, three floors, three guards and four robbers. In Burgle Bros you and up to three friends will team up to get the loot and get out. Don’t get caught. Well, don’t get caught so many times you run out of stealth tokens.
