world_book2Dragon Kings was funded in Kickstarter in 2013 with a fairly unrealistic delivery date and the promise of a lot; rulebook, CD with music inspired in the setting, PDFs, posters, more rule books for different systems…

But I backed it anyway because the setting sounded fantastic and the artists they had recruited to do some illustration and cartography are second to none. In fact the map of Khitus is absolutely breath-taking.

Dragon Kings also sold itself as the spiritual successor of Dark Sun, one of my favourite settings for Dungeons & Dragons since it was published in 1994, so regardless of everything I would have bought it.

Now, one year late, I have the setting book in my hands, the music CD in my library, the MP3s in my phone and the posters on my wall, so I am happy I got what I paid for. Almost.

The fact is that at the time of publishing this video I haven’t got the Pathfinder or Savage World rules supplement and there’s not been an update on the project since February 2015.

So, with all those issues and the fact the typography is not great (should have made more of an issue of that in the video) is it worth getting this book?

Well, yes. Very, very much so.

And in the video I tell you why!

pic2509383_t[1]If the universe were to end and a new universe to be formed afterwards, aliens would be looking for the Ovoid, a mysterious artefact that would allow them to jump into the next universe and, basically, not die. But in order to do that, one would have to find other artefacts, trade, conquer, fight and think very hard to get the life saving device.

That is the premise of Chaosmos and that’s what the players have to do it to find a way to locate the aforementioned Ovoid and jump into the next reincarnation of the universe.

Chaosmos funded in Kickstarter with great success and they unlocked a few stretch goals, so it should be a pretty good game.

But, as usual, we have to wonder if the contents of the box are worth the amount of money you have to spend to get your hands on it.

Well, let’s find out!

91SZ8DeIj7L._SY355_It is well know I have a soft spot for French produced games because they tend to be really, really lovely and wonderfully beautiful.

And among French companies, Ludonaute are my softest of spots because they not just produce fantastic games (Ygdrassil anyone? Lewis & Clark?) but they also look super gorgeous.

With Colt Express, a Western themed game in which you compete to rob a train, they took it one level up with the production and it has paid off because is a spectacular game on the table and has got them the most prestigious award of all, the Spiel des Jarhes 2015, so there must be something good about this game.

However, if you still need some more evidence to find out if this game is worth the amount of money you have to pay to get your hands on it, watch on!

Hope you enjoy the show!

pic1638487_t[1]Guardians’ Chronicles is a super hero based miniatures game published by the excellent Iello.

Released in 2014, it plays 2 to 4 players and from the outside looks pretty amazing.

In this game the players take the roles of super heroes who have to stop Professor Skarov from executing his evil plans. With a fair number of miniatures, cards and tiles, the game promises a lot and looks gorgeous.

But are the content of this box worth the amount of money you have to pay to get your hands on it?

Let’s find out!

pic2010328_t[1]Athlas – Duel for Divinity caught my eye before it even came out because of the absolutely striking visuals. That doesn’t mean much… I am easily caught up by beauty and this game indeed looks very beautiful.

Athlas – Duel for Divinity is a 2 player game in which players have to fight their way through to becoming gods again.

The game did very well in Kickstarter and received very good reviews. With superbly gorgeous miniatures, this game sounds very, very appealing.

But is this game worth the amount of money you have to spend to get your hands on it?

Let’s find out!

pic2204281_t[1] I have been looking forward to unboxing Realm of Wonder since I saw it released at Spiel 2014.

The game from Mindwarrior Games looked absolutely gorgeous and it got some amazingly good reactions from the crowds that relentlessly populated the company’s booth at the show.

But of course I have to find if this game is worth the amount of money you have to pay to get your hands on it.

And here’s the video to show you!
