mindjammer_2e_sketch_cover[1]Those of you who follow me might know I am pretty obsessed with Mindjammer, the master piece that Sarah Newton has written to bless the world of RPG.

I fell so in love with this game that I had to write my review in two parts because I couldn’t bring myself to condense it and risk missing something.

And I couldn’t miss the chance to do a video review for those of you who prefer to hear/see what games are like and what reviews are like to make sure no one misses on this game.

I will say again that I said in my review: Probably the best Science Fiction game written to date.

pic2099804_t[1]Cubist is a very strange proposition for a game. But then, this is a game co-designed by Alf Seegert, a designer who is known for creating strange games with strange themes that, invariably, work very well indeed.

The Road to Canterbury and Fantastiqa are games that should be in any gamer’s collection.

After a Kickstarter campaign a few months ago, Cubist is not ready to be bought. In this game one has to create an art museum using your dice as building material. And you can enlist some artists to help out!

Exactly. That is very original.

The production values of previous games released by Eagle and Griffin has been pretty excellent and this one shouldn’t be any less. But, just in case, I take a look inside the box to find out if the money you have to pay to get your hands on this game is actually worth it.

Hope you enjoy the video!

pic1807233_t[1]Camelot: The Build is the revival title launched by Wotan Games at Spiel 2013 after a long period of inactivity.

Designed by Julian Musgrave Camelot: The Build sees the players competing to create Camelot, the legendary home of King Arthur and his knights. Think interior design medieval style.

With a very reduced number of rules, clean, clear graphic design and a play time of, 30 minutes this game if firmly aimed at the family market.

But what’s inside the box and, most importantly, is it worth the amount of money you have to pay to get your hands on it?

Let’s find out!

Sentinels_tacticsSentinel Tactics is the latest, and probably most ambitious, production from Greater than Games, the company that came to fame – deservedly so – with Sentinels of the Multiverse, the cooperative card game in which players work together to defeat a number of rather unpleasant threats.

Now they’ve moved on from just cards to cards, boards, comic books, minis… yeah… they’ve levelled up.

And, as usual, that’s happened after a successful Kickstarter campaign.

So I wanted to find out if the money I gave them to get this out actually was well used or not.

Here are the results!

logo_500Welcome to the pilot episode of Dice & Slice, the show about games, gamers and food.

After a successful crowd-funding campaign in Kickstarter to buy some equipment and the hell of a lot of learning for the following four months, the pilot/rehearsal episode is now out with something tasty for you to enjoy and, hopefully, cook too!

In this episode two mega simple recipes and a super excellent game.

First a cold soup that’s as healthy as it is tasty and can be modified to fit your tastes: Gazpacho. Lots of tomatoes, some garlic, basil… Just watch. It’s pretty delicious. Click here to download the recipe.

And for dessert: Creamed Rice Pudding. Another really basic recipe that can be complemented with all sorts of ingredients to suit your taste and turn something simple into something awesome. Click here to download the recipe.

And then Michael Chamberlain and I play X-Wing and review the game. The good (lots of it), the bad (only a couple of things) and the ugly (absolutely nothing of that.)

And now, please get your feedback coming!

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!
