Organising seminars at conventions is hard work, though they’re also tremendous fun and, when one has the privilege of sharing the space with personalities like the ones in this seminar, it becomes a joy.
This seminar takes four influential names in the board and role playing games industry and puts them in touch with the public, answer questions and and challenge views you didn’t know were there.Read More
The last (so far) in the Tempest series of unboxing videos. Mercante, from Jeff Tidball, put you in control of a merchant house and sends you to do business and become the greatest in Tempest.
Something that’s probably easier said than done!Read More
Another game in the city of Tempest game from Alderac Entertainment Group, Dominare.
Designed by Jim Pinto, Dominare puts the players in the place of conspirators aiming to control the city. Use your agents and expand your influence and control the metropolis that many say is the biggest city in the world.
Now all this sounds very well and proper, but is the game worth the amount of money you have to pay to get your hands on it?
Let’s find out!Read More
One of the games from AEG based in the city of Tempest, Courtier will have you take the place of an influence broker who’s mission is to manipulate the elite of the city and get them do what you need them to.
Needless to say this is a rather competitive game, and it is for 2 to 4 players to enjoy. Or endure if you’re the loser.
The box looks seriously lovely from the outside, but is the game worth the money you have to pay to get your hands on it?Read More
Released at Spiel 2012 – at a push because of customs delaying the delivery of the games – Guildhall, from AEG, has been very well received and, with a short play time and simple rules, was very promising from the start.Read More

By Paco Garcia Jaen During the UK Games Expo I was fortunate enough to play a round of Smash Up with Mark Wootton, who, although his business card says something else, is the Director of All Things Cool at Alderac Entertainment...Read More
First, a confession. I am late to the Thunderstone party. I played Thunderstone at the Games Expo last year and was very impressed. It was a quick and easy game to play with plenty of depth. Since then I kept meaning to pick a copy up but it didn’t happen. There have been a couple of base sets and several expansions, however this latest base set looks to clear up a lot of rules questions and advance the rules further, so it’s ideal time to crash the Thunderstone party.Read More
It’s been almost a year since I started playing Thunderstone with my review of Dragonspire. Since then I’ve bought and played every expansion and promo with the sole exception of the 2nd promo (‘Cause it’s outta stock). Heart of Doom will close out the series and with a little creative re-jigging of my Dragonspire box, it will also fill my box with only enough room for a couple more promos.Read More
The basic idea is that the Ninja player(s) sneak into a castle, avoid, outwit, kill, guards, complete 2 secret missions and “get out of dodge”. I loved the sound of this very sneaky game and having played other AEGquality games, couldn’t wait to get stuck in.Read More
