Unboxing: Darkest Night, from Victory Point Games

There are a lot of companies out there that claim that for them the gameplay is what matters, not the game components. And I mean a lot.

Victory Point Games, though, is one that lives by that motto. They have been producing games that came with next to nothing components and in a little bag. And there have been some gems in those bags!

Now they’re stepping up the production value of their games and have found a way to make the games boxed in an inexpensive way so they can have more market penetration.

Of course they don’t want to compromise on the quality of the game, but have they done enough to compete with the big boys and grab shopper’s attention at your FLGS?

Tooth And Nail: Factions

Well, as usual, Small Box is up to no good. First, they make this killer game called Omen: A Reign of War which took everyone by surprise and turned into the “out of left field” smash card game of 2011. I mean, if ever a game needed an iOS app, it’s that one. And then they delivered Hemloch, an odd little card game with an odd little theme that is oddly, pretty fun. So, I was kind of thinking they were due for a stinker. I mean, we’ve loved most of what came out of the joint for a while, and then came Tempt, one of the most truly awful games I’ve ever played…with a rulebook so bad that it was incomprehensible. But John Clowdus and Company are, by and large, batting close to 1000. So, here comes Tooth And Nail: Factions (TANF), which has what I think is the best art and theme to date out of the company. “But how does it play?” you ask…well, let’s talk about that.

Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space RPG Unboxing

An RPG that takes a well known hero and brings him close to us and enables us to play those heroes take a great risk. The risk of disappointing us.

That is what Cubicle 7 has done with the Doctor Who: Adventure in Time and Space RPG, take a risk. Both because people will have great expectations of the game,and secondly because it is a dear license for the BBC and great care has to be taken to portray the much loved TV series as well as possible.

Pathfinder Role Playing Beginner Box unboxing video

Since the Pathfinder Roleplaying System came out a few years ago, the game and the support it’s got has gone from strength to strength, with an incredible amount of followers and devoted players and GMs.

However the initial book is a bit heavy, both on the pocket, the hand and the mind, which I know can put a lot of people off.

Paizo has come up with a basic set box to help people get acquainted with the game and make it easier to get into it. But what does it contain?

SHAKE N’ TAKE

Shake n’ Take is a quick, manic game from Out Of The Box Games. The game is pretty simple. Each player has a dry-erase board sheet containing a multitude of different-shaped aliens. One player takes the role of Alien Hunter and is armed with a rather funky pen topped with a great green alien head.

Faux-Cabulary review

Fwaposaurus. Hypobushy. Bangoism… What would appear to be a keyboard gone mad or a writer gone drunk, it’s nothing else than the new nouns for new things you never thought needed a name. And what fun is to make them!

A Lone Banner

I recently got my order filled by Small Box Games, which included the new, and very fun, A Lone Banner. It’s a light wargame that looks very simple at first glance, but is surprisingly fun and is easily the quickest Small Box Games product to learn and play.

The Lurker at the Threshold

So the seventh Arkham Horror expansion was released recently; the fourth of the “small box” expansions. Having played with it a few times now, I believe it is the best of the small boxes, but I have to admit that’s not necessarily saying much… Much as I love Arkham Horror and the system as a whole, I’ve never been a huge fan of the small box expansions.
