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.

Cartographers: A Roll Player Tale

The rather manageable genre of flip&fill games has got a new representative: Cartographers: A Roll Player Tale by Jordy Adan is a game set in the Roll Player universe. But you hardly notice anything of it. However, the game is already more demanding than the average Roll&Write game with dice. How we liked the game, you can read in our review.

Arkham Noir Review

Arkham Noir

I admit it: I don’t have much experience with solo playing, but with Yves Tourigny’s Arkham Noir, the subject matter appealed to me so much that I took the step and still managed to get it on my table. In the small box there is nothing more than a few cards. It’s about Case 1: The Witch Cult Murders, in which we as investigators have to create an overall picture, which is created by playing puzzle cards. That sounds easier than it is.

Star Wars Outer Rim Review
