Ninja, Legend Of The Scorpion Clan – an Advanced Scotland Yard

It had the same flavor as Scotland Yard, but with more depth and general complexity. The added mechanics led to a world more strategy, and I think adds more replay value.

Go Hunt – A dirty adult game that was not what I was expecting.

Today’s blog is rated ‘M’ for Mature. It is full of suggestive themes that parents may find offensive. The folks from “Go Hunt” contacted me a little while ago, saying they would be interested in having their game reviewed.  I didn’t really think much of it, assuming that this was just another “Go Fish” variant.

Chaostle: Sorry meets Talisman

Every bit of this screams “Classic American Game”, and if you like that style, you’ll like this one. Judged within that category, this game is quite good. If however, you are a Euro Gamer, this will likely not float your boat.

Redneck Life is a very funny roll and move game, but what about replay value?

“Experiment” a failed experiment

More of an excercise in following instructions then an engaging game, “Experiment” was a failed experiment.

Kill the Hippies: a Blasphemous Good Time

A spur of the moment pick up at Gen Con ’07 that results in lots of laughs, but certainly not for the easily offended.
