Warring Kingdom by Harry Gao (Kickstarter Preview)

Warring Kingdom is a deck builder that brings something fresh to the genre – player interaction. Now it is my opinion that deck building games can, not always but certainly can, just seem to be a multiplayer game of solitaire.

Worker Placement (Video Review)

Worker Placement is an easy-to-learn strategy board game of earning cash and gaining reputation. In the game, you assume the role of a temporary employment agency CEO who is trying to build his or her start-up business into a thriving operation. The path to success seems simple enough: hire unemployed temp workers, help them to upgrade their skills, and find them the best short-term jobs so your company can get paid its cut. Competition with other temp agencies is fierce, though, so establishing a solid reputation as a reliable and dependable agency can bump your workers towards the front of the employment line.

Two Rooms and a Boom (Kickstarter Preview)

Hidden suicide bombers, conniving spies, infectious disease, and an evil timer that slams your head into the ground while all you want is a moment of clarity to speak with your team? Hell yes, I’m in. In the realm of social deduction games, if The Resistance was Stone Age then Two Rooms and a Boom (2R1B) is The Manhattan Project; It is sleek, sexy, and most importantly – a deep and dynamic experience.

Road/Kill Ultimate Car Combat (Kickstarter Preview)

Like a train through a pigeon, Road/Kill will hit you in the chest and drag your body a hundred bloody yards across the steel highways of 2175. Depth, tension, speed, and replayability are all present in spades and I believe this is the first car combat game to really nail the precarious balance between complexity and ease of play. Rarely does such a combination come together in such strong form and I cannot help but fever in anticipation of the upcoming Kickstarter re-launch.
