Details on Mega Man The Board Game sound wild

Review: Divinity: Dragon Commander
by Patrick Hancock

Dragons and jetpacks, Civilization and StarCraft. Mix'em all together and what do you get? Divinity: Dragon Commander.

Okay, it's a bit more complicated than that, but those are certainly the core elements at play when discussing Divinity: Dragon Commander. It's not quite a real-time strategy game as complex as StarCraft, and it's just shy of being as big-picture as Civilization. It does have jetpack-wearing dragons, however, which sort of puts things in perspective. I mean, what else really matters?

Review: 7 Grand Steps, Step 1: What Ancients Begat photo
Review: 7 Grand Steps, Step 1: What Ancients Begat
by Fraser Brown

Board game, wheel of fortune, a vast narrative spanning thousands of years -- 7 Grand Steps is a strange beast. Through simple slot machine mechanics, choose-your-own-adventure scenarios, and eventually actual strategy, one bloodline makes their way through a massive slice of human history, spinning a unique, if almost arbitrary, impersonal story. 

One-more-turn syndrome -- the deadly illness that turns minutes into hours and days into nights -- drives the game forward, and I found myself still playing long after I realized I was actually rather bored. It's as insidious as a fruit machine or a one-armed bandit, but deeper. Is it more rewarding? Well, you won't end up with the chance of a big payout at the end, but the millennium-spanning narrative might be worth the ride.

Behold, the first Mario game voiced by Charles Martinet
