Favorite poetry by Hendrick Laursen on February 18th, 2020, 2:00 am
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,

Only this and nothing more.”

~ Edgar Allan Poe, "The Raven"

Kingdom Death: Monster - A Hobby Game by toucana on March 17th, 2019, 7:03 pm

This is the type of board game you are only ever likely to meet once in a lifetime of dice rolling. It is an enormous boutique cooperative hobby adventure game that comes in a massive 8.6 kilograms (19lbs) ‘coffin package’ priced in at something like $400 for the base set alone on the US market. What you get for your money in the first instance is several months worth of resin sprue miniature model assembly and decorative painting.

Part of the point of a hobby game is the cooperative experience of spending several months glueing together armies of baroque miniature model monsters with your circle of fellow gamers, and then painting the assembled models to your satisfaction with toothpicks and micro-brushes.

Do Europeans Actually Play Eurogames ? by toucana on December 26th, 2018, 3:12 am
For well over twenty years a dominant trend in modern board games has been towards what are known as ’Euros’ - intricate worker placement games with strong historical themes based around economic engine building, resource management, trading relationships, and the development of area cartels and power blocs.

The great originals were Catan (1995) and Carcassonne (2004) which came from Germany. These so-say ‘gateway’ games were credited with helping to convert an entire generation of younger players to a radically new style of board gaming. They were quickly joined by a growing avalanche of other classic new Euro style board games such as El Grande (1995) which is set in 15th century Spain at the time of the Reconquistada, or Power Grid (2004), originally a crayon-rail game from Germany called Funkenschlag (Sparks) which mimics the macro-economics of the energy supply ...
