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...

A Dark Souls card game is on the way

Earlier this year a Dark Souls board game was released, and Steamforged Games is out for another round.  Putting the licensed to further use, they're now set to release a Dark Souls card game into the world. It's a co-op game for ...

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...
