Core Worlds: Galactic Orders

Those of you who have read my review of the base game are by now more than aware that it is one of my favourite games, so when an expansion was announced it was a slam for me. This expansion brings the galactic orders that we had seen on the prestige cards in the base games, to new heights as you vie for influence with these powerful institutions.

Unboxing Phantom League and expansions

Without a doubt, passion is something most game designers have buckets loads of and Timo Multamäki is no exception.

The creator of Phantom League was only so quick and eager to show me his game and it was very impressive indeed!

Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space Review

For someone who grew in a country where the Doctor was, and largely is, nothing but a name we know very, very little about, it only took me a few episodes of the series to get infatuated with the character and companions hopping from adventure to adventure. Even though I wasn’t all that keen on the actor portraying the Doctor, the story and extremely clever writing that came with it really got me hooked.

ACTA: Star Fleet

For almost 25 years I’ve been playing Star Fleet Battles and its derivatives, and while I’m still no expert, I know as much about them as anyone who has played them for any length of time. Ironically, it’s not that I’m that enamored with Star Trek or the Star Trek universe, but more that I’m fascinated by the level of detail that Amarillo Design Bureau (ADB) has put into the game, as well as the idea of big, cool-looking spaceships chewing through one another with energy weapons.

Alien Frontiers Factions unboxing video

To say that I am a fan of Alien Frontiers is a bit of an understatement. I have been playing that game since the second run and it comes onto my table more often than any other game.

So when the Factions Kickstarter came up, I just had to back it. More friends to share the game has to be a good thing, right?
