42 Days: The Journey Out of Homelessness

I often find myself looking for unique games, and for that reason this Kickstarter game called to me. 42 Days: The Journey Out of Homelessness is a game about, well, escaping homelessness. More specifically it's a game about how "homelessness is deal with" in the United States. The game appears to include a board, over six decks, player pieces, and tracking chips. Now, before I go any further this game is not going to fund. But it's worth a look.

Quarterbacking in Board Games: The Player and Developer Perspective

"This is a fantastic game," said our local game shop owner. "Everyone's loved it."

We picked up Magic Maze and set it up in a few minutes. The premise was simple: everyone controls the direction that pawns move and the movements they can take. Pawns must collect an item and then escape the maze. Oh, and it has to be done simultaneously, and in complete silence.

Deadly Premonition (Rising Star Games) Board Game Review

"So this is a board game about a really shitty video game?"

"It's a board game about a video game."

"Yeah, but it was a really shitty one, right?"

"It was an homage to Twin Peaks."

"Seems like 'homage' is the word they use to describe shitty things."

"OK look -- have you played the game?"

"No, but I saw it on YouTube."

Fog of Love (Hush Hush Projects) Game Review

I hate romance movies. And it's not for the reason most people think. I'm a sucker for a good romance story, I always have been. Unfortunately, "romance movies" are like "nice guys"; the only reason you use either distinction is because they have nothing else going for them. 

Fog of Love is a "romantic comedy" in a game, and it plays out just like every movie you could ever imagine. It's a sequence of set pieces, cliches, and inexplicable storytelling -- and somehow, it really, really works. But let's get started with the bad (just like in a romance).

Fog of Love is a two player "romantic comedy" simulation, in which players are able to act out different scenarios as though they were in a romantic movie. Players attempt to reach their own destinies and fulfill their own objectives while still remaining with the one they love.
