pic2490588_t[1] Heroes is a game that came to me recently and the box alone got my attention for its totally gorgeous cover. It really looked amazing.

A deck builder at its core, this 2 player game puts you in command of an army of wizards and creatures you must summon to destroy your enemies. Mercilessly.

A game published by Lion Games and Rebel.pl, Heroes has been designed by experienced designer Adam Kwapiński, who’s already got a very impressive list of titles in his portfolio (First to Fight is rather excellent!).

But, as usual and regardless of how good the box looks, we need to look inside and see if the game’s contents are worth the amount of money you have to pay to get your hands on it.

Let’s find out!

pic2407103_t[1]King of Tokyo was a massive success for good reasons. It is a quick, simple, very entertaining, fun and very, very nasty game. Oh and it has kaiju. What’s not to like?

But, as you could expect, Richard Garfield wasn’t going stand still and not make it even better, and thus came King of New York.

With a bit more complex and strategic game play, the game offered a new dimension and level of playability to the already great game franchise.

Coming from Iello, I have no reason to doubt this game will be great inside, but, as it is my duty, I have to find if the contents of this game are worth the amount of money you have to spend to get your hands on it.

Hope you enjoy the show!

pic2222915_t[1]One of the companies I always look forward to seeing when I get to Essen is Czech Board Games, they always have some quirky and fun game that, although hardly have the depth of one of the greatest, they’re always very welcome around the table and more than original in their design.

Irreverent, cheeky and sometimes edgy, their games do bring a “ohhhhh!” more often than not.

Last year, Czech Board Games released McJohny’s, a game that plays on the fast food model and puts the player as one of the workers in a team of the employees in a big chain in charge of a part of the business.

It all sounds good and fun so far, but are the contents worth the amount of money you have to pay to get your hands on it?

Let’s find out!

pic2554664_t[1]When NSKN released Exodus: Proxima Centauri, the game had the makings of an excellent game and when they released the revised edition they proved the point with a slick, deep and hugely enjoyable game that was upgraded in every sense, from components to the size of the box.

Now they have released Exoddus: Age of Extinction, an expansion for the core game that not just expands the rules, also improves the gameplay and bring solo play and missions galore to enjoy.

So, although to say NSKN has grown in catalogue, wisdom and experience, how does that reflect on this new expansion?

Is this game worth the amount of money we have to pay to get our hands on it?

Let’s find out!

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!
