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!

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!

pic836017_t[1]Kings of Mithril is a game from Mindwarrior Games, the Finnish company part of the Tactic group that has released a few games in the last few years of varying themes.

This time the players compete to gain control of a kingdom by building said kingdom around and inside Mount Mithril.

Players try to extend their mining tunnels deep inside the mountain and build underground forges while lumberjacks, farmers, road builders and merchants spread out to the plains around the mountain. Building forts and guarding borders also help each tribal chief towards the ultimate goal of being crowned king of this mythical island surrounded by stormy seas.

Game was presented first at the Essen 2010 exhibition.

Now, all of this sounds very good, but are the game contents worth the amount of money you have to pay to get your hands on it?

Let’s find out!

pic657061_t[1]Atlantic Triangle, a game from Mindwarrior Games is a 2-5 players designed by Esa Wiik. With a time play of 90 minutes, it’s not a quick game, though Mindwarrior Games tend to have out games that are rules light and easy to get to grips with.

The Finnish company has released a number of games to date that feature good production values and sound very good on paper.

Will this one be similar?

Let’s find out if Atlantic Triangle is worth the amount of money you’d have to pay to get your hands on it.
