Historical-Games-Factory[1]Polish company Historical Games Factory has a great purpose, to create historically accurate games that reflect the theme. Lots of games try that but it’s a rather difficult thing to achieve and you need to know your history very well.

With Sigismundus Augustus they did a great job and created a really deep and complex game and continued with First to Fight (review coming soon!) and the way they increased their production quality between the games is staggering. Enough to make anyone realise how serious and how good these guys are.

With Ark of Animals they cater to the younger gamers with a memory game that will also have adults very entertained (specially adults with bad memory like me!

But there is more to the company and I got together with Piotr Żuchowski to ask him about the company’s comings and goings.

And where they are going is a great future they have ahead!

pic1150681_t[1]I like Mindwarrior Games. I think it’s a cool company and they have a very friendly customer facing people who devote themselves to their customers.

Customers who tend to be very happy to play their games too, I hasten to add.

In this video we take a look at Terra Evolution, a deck building game that promises to be pretty good and did well in Kickstarter.

The box looks pretty lovely, but are the contents of this box worth the amount of money you have to pay to get your hands on it?

Let’s find out!

pic1738254_t[1]Suburban dispute was another discovery from Spiel that I was attracted to because I like silly games sometimes (well, OK… often).

In this case, Jamoma Games brings us a game of back-stabbing  and gangster families fighting with each other for the… err…. for whatever, it doesn’t matter because fighting between gangsters is always a good ting to do and we love it.

The box feels pretty nice, but, of course, it’s the content that truly matter and in this case we take a look at the inside of this game to see if the content is worth the amount of money you have to pay to get your hands on it.

Enjoy the show!

pic2374467_t[1] Anyone who likes cool TV would have heard of Thunderbirds, the series set an incredible precedent on TV decades ago and it has remained an icon and a milestone to date with a massive following of dedicated fans. Now those fans, and more people yet to become fans, are going to have the chance to become Thunderbirds themselves and work together to save the world from the nefarious plans of The Hood, who won’t make the task easy.

And neither has Matt Leacock, the designer of the Thunderbirds game that Modiphius will publish as soon as the Kickstarter campaign is over.

In this episode of Dice & Slice we show you how the game plays and talk to publisher Chris Birch about the plans for the Thunderbirds game, it’s strengths and more.

To make sure you have as much time to play the game as possible, this episode features two recipes that take mere minutes to prepare without compromising on taste.

The main course is a Lemon Roast Chicken that takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and is ready in the time it’ll take you to save the world a few times. You can download the recipe here.

For dessert, a recipe for Vegan Brownies that will have everyone around you amazed at how incredible something without eggs or milk taste. Download the recipe here.

pic1332456_t[1] Golden Egg Games has produced some super cool games.

Historia, Fallen City of Karez, Alliances, City Council, Florenza: The card game…

And they’ve had some seriously great successes in Kickstarter with Athlas – Duel for Divinity, a two players game in which each player takes the role of a god-like being taking a test of adulthood to gain access back to paradise.

I got together with chief designer and overall ruler of the company to find out what else they’ve been up to and what we can expect in the future.

pic2041077_t[1]If something can be said about GenX Games is that they are uncompromising with their games. They publish what they like to publish and think it’s fun and, more often than not, they get it right!

This past Spiel they came out with “The Possession”, a homage to the Evil Dead movie and its genre.

With all the fear, blood and demonic presence, this game puts the players in the shoes of some young people who have to survive the night and try not to become demons themselves.

Mind you, they can indeed turn into demons, which can be interesting from the gaming point of view because it turns the players against other players in which is otherwise a cooperative game.

I spoke to Servando Carvallar, from the company to find out more about this rather unique game.

Hope you enjoy the interview!
