Check Out The Latest STAR WARS Offering from Fantasy Flight Games – It is your DESTINY

Recently Fantasy Flight has produced two epic Star Wars titles, Imperial Assault and Rebellion. These games have rightly received critical acclaim for their implementation of squad combat (Imperial Assault) and tactical strategy (Rebellion). But while both of these games focus on the grand scale, neither focuses on 1 vs. 1 combat between iconic Star Wars characters. Enter Star Wars: Destiny, a two player dice/card game designed by Cory Konieczka and Lukas Litzsinger and published by Asmodee/FFG. Destiny pits two main characters from the Star Wars universe against two other main characters, using a customizable deck of cards and dice...

For Part One, click here.  On the 7th day of Gamesmas my true nerd gave to me….. 7) Clockwork Wars (Eagle-Gryphon): I’ve gotten to play this masterpiece twice in the last two weeks.

My 12 Games Of Gamesmas (Part 1)

Any time there is a gathering of my friends and family a board game is likely to appear. Over the last few years this has been even more of a tradition around Thanksgiving. It is usually at that time, sensing year’s end approaching, that I get a little selfish and want to make sure I get in as many of “my” games in as I can before the new year. “My” games are the ones that I am particularly fond of that may not get as much love from my normal gaming group – either they’ve moved on to...

WHITEHALL MYSTERY – Who’s That? It’s Jack!

Fantasy Flight’s Letters From Whitechapel could be my favorite game of all time. I love its intensity and the pure battle of wits each play provides. There is no luck, few pieces – and really, no excuses. You win when you outsmart your opponents, you lose when you don’t. Here’s a link to my review of Whitechapel. Fantasy Flight Games/Asmodee are about to release a new game, Whitehall Mystery, which is very similar to Whitechapel, but takes place in the Whitehall district of London.  The game is based on the historic morbid discovery of human remains during the building...

Anything You Can Build – 3 Favorite Civilization Building Games

I love civilization building games. I was hooked back in 1991 when I played Sid Meier’s Civilization for hours on end on my PC with1 MB of RAM, and I’ve played pretty much every iteration of Civilization since. (Side note: I never imagined that I would ever need more than 1 MB of RAM) Since I got into playing board games about 5 years ago, I have been searching for the perfect civ building tabletop experience. There are some good ones out there, but three I have found stand out above the rest, and capture that Sid-like magic that...

Amazing Fan-Made Version of Lovecraftian Horror Board Game – ANCIENT HORROR

by M. Pending Düüm Oft have my colleagues and I gleefully descended into the nightmare realm of the Fantasy Flight Games hit Lovecraftian co-op board game Eldritch Horror, but even my mind (twisted as it has become by dark and ancient things) could not have envisioned this delightfully blasphemous creation… British archeologist and Eldritch Horror fan Philip Boyes, as if inspired by some wicked and sanity-shattering dream, has developed his own DIY version of the game set in the East Mediterranean Bronze Age. Cultists and seekers of forgotten lore, I give you – ANCIENT HORROR! For Boyes’ homespun journey...

Android: Mainframe – Fantasy Flight Proves It Is The Brady/Manning Of Table Top Gaming

~Rob Fenimore Dice Drop Games BREAKING NEWS: Fantasy Flight makes fantastic games. If you play table top games, you already know this. But I figured I would remind you just in case you forgot. As with most things in life, I think we take constant excellence for granted sometimes. It happens in sports quite often. Tom Brady and Peyton Manning were so good for so many years, it was no big deal when they they would throw 40 TD’s in a season. Their excellence became a non-story. And in this Golden Age Of Gaming, with so many other quarterbacks...

Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game – Old School Role Playing Meets Card Games

by Paul Feldman Fantasy Flight Games’ Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game feels more like an old school Dungeons & Dragons hack-and-slash sesh than a card game, but without all the pre-game prep a traditional tabletop RPG calls for. Calculating encumbrance might have been a great way to pass the time in Algebra II, but now we’re all grown-ass adults who have to argue with strangers on the Internet. Who has the time? Like the other two FFG games I’ve reviewed, Conquest and Forbidden Stars, WQ: TACG borrows from a universe already established by Games Workshop, only this time it’s the...
