Board Game: Tiny Towns

Tiny Towns – We build tiny cities for critters

Board games in which cities are built are always well received in the board game scene. Tiny Towns by Peter McPherson takes up this topic and thanks to the publisher AEG, we are allowed to play city planner once again. But somehow there is something different about this board game. Everything is tighter and quite tricky and puzzling. We took a closer look at Tiny Towns. In our review we want to explain to you why setting a single wooden cube at the beginning of the game can already mean the lose for you.

Board Game Review - Imperial Settlers: Empires of the North

Imperial Settlers Empires of the North – A hot board game upgrade

Imperial Settlers can be found in my personal top 3 board games. When Portal Games announced last year that Imperial Settlers: Empires of the North would be a new spin-off of the already well-known game principle, I was of course immediately hooked. But could the new spin-off replace my beloved board game? And what exactly are the differences between the two games? Answers to these questions can be found in the following review of Imperial Settlers: Empires of the North.

Trismegistus Board Game Review

Trismegistus The Ultimate Formula

Trismegistus is the new game by Daniele Tascini and Federico Pierlorenzi. Like Teotihuacan, this board game is published by Board & Dice. I wonder if the game in which we try our hand at being alchemists will have the same level of difficulty as the game about the Aztecs? Will we really manage to produce gold in Trismegistus, so that we have a good source of income for our board game hobby in the future? We would like to explain this to you in our review of this challenging board game.

Black Angel Board Game Review

Black Angel – Humanity at stake

Who hasn’t dreamed of setting off into space and experiencing exactly this? In Black Angel by Sébastien Dujardin, you now have the chance to do so. The only drawback, however, is that there are no humans on board the Black Angel, only the DNA of humanity. The earth is wrecked and we or our DNA are now trying our luck again on the planet Spes. The AI on board will get us there somehow. If this experiment can succeed, we will clarify in our test of the Black Angel board game from Pearl Games.

We had grabbed the expansion Underwater Cities – New Discoveries in Essen for SPIEL’19 and now had it on the board game table.

Marco Polo 2 Review

Marco Polo II In The Service Of The Khan

With Marco Polo II – In the service of the Khan, the new edition of the well-known On the Trails of Marco Polo board game from 2015 has landed on our gaming table. Not only has the name remained almost the same, the authors Daniele Tascini and Simone Luciani have also contributed to the first part. Dennis Lohausen is again responsible for the illustrations. Whether the publisher Hans im Glück has succeeded in improving the winner of the Deutscher Spielepreis 2015 or whether Marco Polo II – In the service of the Khan is just old rice in new bowls, we try to clarify this in our review of the board game.

Cities Skylines Board Game Review

Cities Skylines – We build a board game city

With Cities Skylines by Rustan Håkansson, Kosmos Verlag is creating another video game as a board game. The spiritual successor to Sim City, however, is trying a different approach. Instead of playing against each other, we play cooperatively in Cities Skylines and try to let our city grow and prosper. And just like in the video game we have to take care of the problems of the city. Because even the flat, analog city has its problems with crime and the garbage that is produced. How Cities Skylines performs as a board game, you can read in our review.
