Thunderstone: Thornwood Siege – subtle mechanics that change the game in big ways

While there wasn’t a slew of new rules, the cards that were present in this set were interesting and thought provoking.

Eaten by Zombies! – A Very Different Kind of Deck Builder

You really do feel like the horde is closing in around you, choking you off.

Nightfall: Marshal Law – A wonderfully dark follow up

This wonderfully dark follow up is certainly worth picking up.

Thunderstone: Doomgate Legion – More depth for a Great Game.

Thunderstone: Wrath of the Elements – A new coat of shine for a loved game

What was nice was the new variety that the cards added, our original set of Thunderstone had kinda gotten stale. Really I guess that’s exactly what an expansion should do: leave the game you love in tact, just give it a new coat of shine.

Ascension: Another deck builder, but does it live up to Dominion?

This game is similar to Dominion, a game that I love, however I am bracing myself for hate mail, because I just really don’t like Ascension.

Dominion Alchemy: Broken or Just Awesome?

Initially I was slightly disappointed, but upon closer inspection this set contained a lot of very exciting, and very broken, cards.
