La_Mirada_del_Ce_5011bf13934f4By Paco Garcia Jaen

La Mirada del Centinela is a RPG that came out in Spain a couple of years ago and published by NoSoloRol, one of the most promising companies in Spain at the moment.

A super hero game with a background very close to that of Batman, the game plays to the vigilante theme and puts the players to become either the Centinela, the mythic hero who started it all a few decades ago, or on of his sidekicks.

With a setting that spans three generations and different styles of play, this game does a tremendous job of taking a theme and making it accessible for everyone.

Here’s my video review with an assessment of the production values and a quick overview of the rules.

Hope you enjoy!

First Impressions–Should I buy it

By Evaldas Bladukas

We were talking about trying out different types of content and this is a great example of what we meant. OK so the audio isn’t great – it was a learning experience and we actually managed to learn from it (i.e. we know how to avoid these mic issues later on). As mentioned, we’re very new and self taught at this producing media stuff and we’re ever so happy that you’re patient with us.

Having said that, here’s our video on the new Player’s Handbook. This is very much a “first impressions” video as it’s hard to analyze D&D without copious amounts of on-hand experience. We hope you enjoy Efka’s ramble and we’ll keep on trying different things and delivering more video.

achtung-cthulhu-kickstarterBy Evaldas Bladukas and Elaine Bladukiene

The long awaited part two of our WW2 double bill is finally here. From soldiers to Shoggoths, Achtung! Cthulhu strives to deliver two tropes that inspired many artists mashed into one.

Does it succeed? And more importantly, what happened to Elaine? All will be answered in our new No Pun video issue.

pic1656251_t[1]Cornish Smuggler was the first release by Grublin Games and it came out at Spiel 2013 and it did very well indeed.

In the game the players take the place of smugglers off the coast of Cornwall (yes, in the UK) who have to load goods in their boats and take them to the destination where they can be sold and a profit be made.

But beware of the authorities. Police officers patrol the land and they will quickly take your cargo away.

All of this sounds pretty fun, but are the contents worth the money you have to pay to get your hands on it?

Let’s take a look!

pic1573682_t[1]Ostrich Racing might not sound like something one does, but actually it’s a popular sport in parts of Argentina and this game is all about ostrich racing, but not in Argentina.

In fact in this case this race is used to determine who will succeed the Wizard of the Tribe. The old one has died, you see…

In Banjooli Xeet players become wizards to be who must predict the outcome of the race and influence it as much as possible by charming the ostriches whenever possible.

Not as easy as it sounds.

But does a game that sounds so weird have enough inside to justify the price? We take a look at the contents of the box and the quality of the components!

mm_cover_1_thumbMonsters & Magic, a game designed by Sarah Newton, had a very clear aim when it was designed: to allow you to use your old modules pretty much off the shelf with very little changes.

Not a small task considering the different versions and amount of adventures that D&D has had throughout the years.

For a game that was conceived, developed and produced in a very short space of time, and that aims at a niche and small group of people, does it do things well enough to appeal to more people?

Oh yes it does!

Hope you enjoy the review!
