I completed chapter 1 of Tainted Grail last night. OMG, I’m so into this.

City of the Big Shoulders Review: Warm, Heavy, Sprawling

My first ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ review on the blog!


I teamed up with my friend Jason to put together a list of 10 board games for the Halloween season over on Way Too Many Games.


These are my top picks for games being released at Essen Spiel this year.


10. The Castles of Burgundy (2019 edition)
9. Marco Polo 2
8. Food Chain Magnate: The Ketchup Mechanism & Other Ideas
7. Terramara
6. Cooper Island

Oftentime, deck building games end up being more less similar to one another. RONE, which is on Kickstarter currently, is actually pretty unique. I recommend checking it out. It’s very good. boardgamesquad.com/rone/

We aggregated the top games lists from 20 different board game reviewers to bring you THE ULTIMATE TOP 100 board games list.

Including The Dice Tower, Man vs Meeple, Shut Up & Sit Down, Heavy Cardboard, 3 Minute Board games, Tantrum House, No Pun Included, Slickerdrips, and The Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast

I wrote a review for Newton. The game arrived with some hype last year and sort of fell off people’s radar shortly after its release. It’s a solid board game though, and I recommend giving it a play.

I put together a little table, detailing the relationship between everyone’s favorite Italian board game designers:

Simone Luciani, Daniele Tascini, Virginio Gigli, and Flaminia Brascini


I wrote a review about the latest edition of High Society.


I love auction games and the art in the latest edition is absolutely stunning.

I haven't touched Mastodon in a long time. When I saw that there was a board game instance, I had to jump in!
