War Chest Review with the Game Boy Geek

August 9, 2018

My review of this abstract strategy game by AEG (Alderac Entertainment) for 2 or 4 players where each player has a different set of troops with special abilities. Try to control a certain amount of control areas to win the game. You can also use pre-constructed sets that mimic historical battles, or you can draft your troops!

Railroad Ink Review with the Game Boy Geek

August 8, 2018

My review of this roll & write game designed by the same team that brought you Dragon Castle and published by Horrible Games & CMON. Players share a common pool of dice and over 7 rounds are trying to connect as many networks to their trains and roads as they can. Each of the two versions can play up to 6 players and each have two different mini expansions.

Gunkimono Review with the Game Boy Geek

July 30, 2018

My review of Renegade Game Studio’s big Gencon Release Gunkimono! It’s a re-implementation of the 2009 game Heartland designed by Jeffrey D Allers. It’s a tile laying game with a simple rule set but has tough decisions. You’re trying to balance points now or points later!

Starship Samurai Review with the Game Boy Geek

July 29, 2018

My review of this area control game published by Plaid Hat Games & designed Isaac Vega where you’ll be using ships and drafted samurais to control different areas in space. You’ll also be gaining points by going influence clans and moving them up your score track. Battles use tactical card play, and set collection of controlled areas will gain you points at the end.

Micropolis Review with the Game Boy Geek

July 29, 2018

My review of this tile drafting game published by Matagot and designed by Bruno Cathala & Charles Chevalier (the team that brought us the popular card game Abyss). You’ll be building your own ant colony and trying to have the largest red ant army. There are many different ways to score so each game you can follow a different strategy.
