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!

35441_10151506310088933_1416779805_n_200_200_c1[1]I am not one for wargames because they take too long to play (usually) and I am not one for long games. When Alyssa Faden came up with Torn Armor, I was hooked and i backed the Kickstarter.

Then I had Alyssa in the podcast for an interview and I was even more taken by the game which funded.

And then the problems started.

Stretch goals were hit to unlock a number of truly gorgeous looking miniatures and more than once Souljar Games were let down to the point that a company even kept several thousand dollars and refused to give them back though they never produced the work they were hired to.

Still, despite the delays and the problems, they kept going and going until they’ve produced the game we have in this video.

However, despite all the problems, have they managed to produce a quality game? 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!

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!
