Sellswords Review


Draft your guild, plan your attack, and seize victory!

Take to the field of battle in this intense head-to-head contest of wits and strategy. Use the diverse assortment of mercenaries at your disposal to capture strategic terrain and exploit your enemy’s weaknesses. With fifty different sellswords to compose your guild, no two battles will be the same!

Sellswords is a tile-placement game (they’re cards, not tiles, but you get the idea) for two players in which heroes gather for the battle of a lifetime. Each of the fifty heroes has its own ability to help turn the tiles of battle in your favor!

Abyss Review


The Abyss power is once again vacant, so the time has come to get your hands on the throne and its privileges. Use all of your cunning to win or buy votes in the Council. Recruit the most influential Lords and abuse their powers to take control of the most strategic territories. Finally, impose yourself as the only one able to rule the Abyssal people!

Abyss is a game of development, combination and collection in which players try to take control of strategic locations in an underwater city. To achieve this, players must develop on three levels: first by collecting allies, then using them to recruit Lords of the Abyss, who will then grant access to different parts of the city. Players acquire cards through a draft of sorts, and the Lords of the Abyss acquired on those cards grant special powers to the cardholder — but once you use the cards to acquire a location, that power is shut off, so players need to time their land grabs well in order to put themselves in the best position for when the game ends.

Maha Yodha Review

Maha Yodha

Maha Yodha is a two-player strategy card game set in the ancient and mystical world of Indian mythology. By unlocking ancient Indian stories and unleashing the warriors of yore, Leprechaun Games has created a strategic card game with an unique theme that is both brand new and several millennia old.

Maha Yodha consists of two decks, each of which represents a faction; each faction consists of a unique army of warriors, weapons and scrolls. You will go head-to-head with your opponent, spending valor to dispatch warriors to the front-line to not only deal damage but also defend your life. As in the ancient myths, each warrior has a chosen weapon, which when paired together award bonus powers. Divine scrolls, inspired by interesting characters and stories from the Hindu myths, award you with powerful bonus skills, extra valor, and deadly force to help you take down your opponent.

Maha Yodha features exquisite traditional Indian artwork, or Pattachitra, as well as specially commissioned illustrations of celebrated warriors and weapons in a visceral modern style.

Ancient Terrible Things (Video Review)

Ancient Terrible Things

A pulp horror adventure game for 2-4 players, aged 14 and up.

In Ancient Terrible Things, you play the role of an intrepid adventurer, exploring a dark jungle river.
Each turn you must travel to a Fateful Location, face an Ominous Encounter and attempt to unlock its Ancient Secrets.
If you succeed (using a combination of dice, tokens and cards), you add the Secrets to your score. If you fail, you unleash a TerribleThing, which counts against your score at the end of the game.
The object of the game is to be the player with the most Ancient Secrets when the game ends at the Unspeakable Event.

Game play involves rolling dice to achieve combinations (runs, pairs, three or more of a kind, and single die showing a particular number or higher).
Dice combos are used to overcome Encounter cards (worth points at the end of the game) and to acquire resources (tokens).
There are 4 main resource tokens in the game: Focus, Courage, Treasure and Feat.
Focus tokens used to re-roll individual Focus dice.
Courage tokens are spent to overcome an Encounter, before rolling your dice.
Treasure tokens are spent on Swag cards from the Trading Post,which give you a permanent game effect.
Feat tokens are spent to play Feat cards from your hand, which allow for one-shot effects.
