Review: Scythe: Digital Edition

Scythe. You've heard of it but never played it because none of your friends wanna take the 80-dollar plunge for a game that people might not even enjoy. So you buy the bare-bones licensed Tabletop Simulator version, knowing it has no AI but...

Get some great tabletop games in this Humble Bundle

I absolutely love tabletop games. Whenever I'm back home to visit friends, I always make sure to hop in as a guest character in their weekly DnD session. At family vacation, I'm the one who shows up with Twilight Struggle and Splendor. The ...

Jetpack Joyride board game in final hours of Kickstarter

It's difficult to believe it's been seven years since Halfbrick's fantastic runner Jetpack Joyride originally released, but there it is. Time flies. I'm getting so old. It's also maybe a little difficult to fathom that a bite-sized phone ga...

Jasco might have recently announced that supporting the original Mega Man board game (pictured above) was a complicated issue they didn't know how to address, but they currently have their hands full with Street Fighter: The ...

Whoa: The Alliance Alive 3DS cover is also a board game!

Atlus is the master of good packaging. I mean, the company is nearly unparalleled, as they're consistently delivering the goods regardless of how impressive individual massive AAA collector's editions might sparingly be. That includes this ...

MMA card game Uncaged: World Fighters makes debut at EGLX

I'm not popular enough to have any actual friends to play board or card games, which is why something like EGLX is a great opportunity to expand one's horizons and try things they might otherwise miss out on. Uncaged: World Fighters is an e...

Review: SeaFall

As we move forward in board gaming's current golden age, new games are coming out at an incredible pace. Even so, many provide only new dressing on existing ideas. Once in a while, something comes along that feels so new and different, it i...

Zelda Uno is going to be a thing this week

It's been a while since I've played a regular old game of "in real life" Uno. I doubt that will change given the sheer backlog of tabletop I have to get through (I just tried Viticulture for the first time recently, it's great!), but at the...

Review: Mega Man Pixel Tactics

Mega Man had a rough ride for a while there. Before we saw that Capcom was hard at work on Mega Man 11, there were seven long years of nothing. Instead, other talented studios and fans picked up the torch, and refused to let this once famou...

Tabletop Kickstarters soared over video games last year

Polygon managed to get some hard data from Kickstarter in the games sector, and it's pretty illuminating. After being burned in the past so many times by video game Kickstarters, fans seemingly started to get burnt out on the idea of over-z...

Review: Fallout The Board Game

Video game RPGs can translate very well into the tabletop realm. It's a sort of cyclical relationship, as many entries in the genre are born out of precepts forged in the pen and paper era, and running them back to board games just seems na...

Review: Burgle Bros. (PC)

Co-op games make me happy. Although I'm always down for a good competitive experience, there's something about teaming up with people, whether it's dear friends or strangers, and putting your heads together to solve a common problem. Burgle...
