Looking back on 2015

2015 has been a stellar year for board gaming.  There has been so many great games released that is can make your head spin.  Some have been great, some have been good, and some have been, unfortunately, meh.

 

How did 2015 look for us?  Well I took the time to put together a Crit List over at BoardGameGeek.com for everyone to enjoy.  It's not the "Best of" but it encompasses the games that stood out to me, that I played this year.

 

A lot more than what's on the list hit our table this year, but these are the ones that stand out in terms of notability and ones I look forward to hearing your points, counterpoints and discussion on.  Enjoy... and Happy New Year!

Critical Kicks - Build, Fight, and be Reborn!

I'm back with another look at some kickstarters I backed, that were successfully funded, and that I'm enjoying playing.  In addition to two new games to look at, I have a new game that is about to be on Kickstarter that I'd like to highly recommend to everyone to look at.


This time out we have Stonemaier Games' Between Two Cities, Greenbrier Games' Yashima and Hemisphere Games' Karmaka!  Three very different games, but all three, superbly fun!

Critical Play - Nations the Dice Game on Tabletopia!

Tabletopia is a very slick and intuitive interface that acts as a tabletop simulation program and boy is it fun! Today, I'm joined by my good friend and fellow board game designer, slash personality, slash "best person to play Sheriff of Nottingham with", Chris Leder and we are sitting around the "virtual table" to bring you a session of Nations the Dice Game on Tabletopia.  


Tabletopia is something that I feel has the opportunity to revolutionize certain aspects of our industry and hobby.  From private testing, to promoting kickstarter games vs a print and play to just letting players play more games, it has it all!  So, sit back, relax, and get ready for some world conquering as we show you Nations the Dice Game on Tabletopia!
