King of Tokyo is unarguably one of the most successful board games in our hobby, over the last 5 years. Besides from having the partnership with Richard Garfield as the designer, IELLO has produced a game that is great for all ages, exciting at any time, and just plain fun!
With the success of one title comes the "next step" though, and for our fearless city crushing monsters, once Tokyo and Tokyo Bay have been destroyed, well, what better place to relax, and crush more mountainous skyscrapers in, than the bustling city of New York!
IELLO is purposefully keeping things very quiet on this, but, they were kind enough to let a few of their favorite reviewers have exclusive cards to preview for the pending pandemonium that will happen at Gen Con. As such, we were chosen... and as such, I give thee...
There are a LOT of great games, which are big, bulky, and provide an amazing experience when you have the time to sit down and play them. However, if you're like me, you're on the go a lot, and may not have time, nor the capability, to travel around with Twilight Imperium in the trunk everywhere you go!
Today, we're going to look at the top 3 games I'm carrying with me everywhere I go. I take my trusty back pack with me to all my conventions, and these three gems have provided a ton of fun in a small size and they could do the same for you. Now most of you know, I think Roll For It is the best pocket game on the market, and I've talked at great length about it, so it's not on the top 3, as it's an "automatic" in my opinion when making out a list of what to carry with you... however... these three I'm sharing today are some you should consider, and hopefully will enjoy!
With the success of Netrunner from Fantasy Flight Games, you knew it would only be a matter of time before some other beloved, older, games were "rebooted" (pardon the pun there) by more companies. Doomtown is the latest game of this kind, and it is storming onto the scene like a stampede of wild stallions from Alderac Entertainment Group.
Not since Netrunner's hype has an engine caught on fire like Doomtown: Reloaded's has. It's well placed too, the game is a unique blend of science and western in a world unlike no other. There's creepy circus people, hardened criminals, simple cattlemen, and of course, the law. No, not THAT law, but rather, Law Dogs actually.
While Doomtown may not appeal to everyone, there's no denying this is a solidly build game, with exciting moments for those willing to invest time into the world it sets forth. Grab yer guns pardner, and let's jump into the world of Doomtown: Reloaded!
