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...

Review: Race for the Galaxy (Mobile)

As tabletop releases continue to move at breakneck speeds, one recently caught my eye due to the recommendation of a friend -- Race for the Galaxy. I've always been intrigued by the concept of tableau building, but Race for the Galaxy&...

Review: 7 Wonders (iPad)

It's been out for roughly six years, but in the past six months or so, 7 Wonders became my tabletop group's board game of choice -- either for warmups for heavier games or a cool down afterward ("dessert," as it's called). Our gro...

Review: Tokaido (PC)

I'm pretty much a sucker for anything having to do with feudal Japan. It was a fascinating time period, full of larger-than-life figures, beautiful art, and a warring tapestry that would take a lifetime to study. That's why I gravitated so ...

Review: Carcassonne - Tiles & Tactics

Man, Carcassonne! That name just brings back so many memories. It was essentially my wife's gateway into hobbyist board games, and much more accessible than the one I originally wanted to get her into (and failed): Warhammer 40K. It's crazy...

Robit Riddle is a kid's gateway into role-playing

Tabletop role-playing has survived all these years, through the advent of video games and the resurgence of board games starting in the 1990s. One reason it's still around is that it provides an experience those other media don't. It gives ...

Root has cute animals and a vicious revolutionary uprising

Asymmetry in board games is a tricky thing. Do it wrong, and asymmetry can lead to imbalance, which can lead to flipped tables and scattered pieces, or at the very least a muttering of "I'll never play that again."  So most games that ...

We've got some three-day PAX Unplugged passes to give away

The first ever PAX Unplugged is starting in just one week! It's nice to see a PAX that didn't sell out immediately. In fact, all but the Saturday tickets are still available on the show's website. But you know what? You, dear loyal Destruct...

Sony is making a Settlers of Catan movie

You know who Sony Pictures is. You know the kind of movies it creates, the drivel that its marketing executives spout. Jack and Jill, Pixels, Ghostbusters (2016), The Emoji Movie. This studio has generated some of the worst p...

Chibi Noctis and Lightning are so cute

Fortune Street: Dragon Quest & Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary might be off your radar. And that's okay! Because it's slated to only arrive  in Japan later this month on PS4 and Vita, and probably won't ever see the light of day out...

Review: DropMix

When I found out that Harmonix was making a music-themed board game, I was all in. I am a gigantic fan of the Rock Band series (I bought an Xbox One specifically for Rock Band 4), and eat up as many music-heavy games that I can. After seein...

Sephiroth is putting in work in the new Fortune Street game

We only got one Fortune Street in the west on consoles in 2011 (there was also one worldwide mobile release), but Japan has been churning them out for nearly every console since 1991. Born out of a Dragon Warrior minigame, this Monopoly-esq...

Fantasy Flight publishing Fallout: The Board Game

Fantasy Flight Games has quite a few video-game-to-board-game adaptations under its belt at this point (there's Gears of War, XCOM, and DOOM, to name a few). It's about to add another one to its repertoire, and this one's a doozy. Fallout: ...

I know Yahtzee likes to put in various jokes and quips in the credits section of his Zero Punctuation videos, but his E3 2018 roundup video has 2 big paragraphs in the credits that actually mentions critical He has a point about Rage

Forcing yourself to finish a game Are there any games that you started out enjoying, but ended up having to force yourself to finish? One recent game I had to push myself to complete: Wolfenstein: New Story was ok, but combat got boring fast
