Meet the big boys! A UK Games Expo seminar

Unboxing Courtier

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.

Thunderstone Heart of Doom

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.
