Go to the One Night Ultimate Werewolf page

One Night Ultimate Werewolf really feels and plays like the larger version of the party game. It only has one round and can be played by as little as 3 players, but with the adapted characters, the trickery and rampant accusations that make Ultimate Werewolf so much fun remain intact.

What makes this game stand out even more is the accompanying app that narrates the night phase for you. It’s makes for great ambiance and allows everyone to join in the mayhem.

The only real issue with this game is easily fixed and that has to do with being able to hear players next to you shuffling cards during the night phase. Just tell everyone to make an effort to produce fake sounds and be aware that everyone can hear everything and you should be good.

Go to the Robinson Crusoe: Adventure on the Cursed Island page

Robinson Crusoe was a total surprise to me. A friend broke it out on game night and I was instantly hooked on it. Robinson Crusoe is an amazing survival cooperative that really tests you as a gamer. It’s themes are strong, the art is great, and overall, it’s a spectacular game. If you are going to play it though, it can be a little difficult at first. Here’s what you need to do.

1. Get someone who has already played the game and messed it up a bunch so they really know the rules.

2. The best way to teach this game, is to just play it through with a new group several times (it takes more than a few).

3. Never play it unless you have a Robinson Crusoe pro with you.

I’ve played this game several times now, and tried different scenarios and I’ve loved every game we’ve played. That being said, I know I couldn’t right now pick it up and teach a new group. I’m not sure exactly what makes it so difficult to retain the knowledge of Robinson Crusoe, but for some reason it’s not like a bicycle. If you stop playing, the island will make you forget how to play.

Trust no one.

Lost.

Go to the Timeline: Music & Cinema page

The Timeline games are a blast, and this is by far my favorite. The range and genres for both films and music in the deck is well thought out and balanced. The art is what makes this game stand out. The newly rendered images from classic films and classic bands and composers are so stylistic and cool, you’ll find yourself wishing the tiny cards were all poster-sized.

Don’t go through the deck before you play for the first time to add to the fun of discovering. With every new Timeline installment, I always like to play the new deck first a few times before mixing it into the master deck.

This timeline really stands out, especially for fans of great cinema and music.

I laughed (not quite out-loud) reading the other reviews of this game. I thought I was the only one who had trouble convincing friends that playing as mice could be epic. In fact, I was so desperate to play the game after I got it I had to convince my non-gaming girlfriend to play a few chapters with me.

I had to let us cheat a little bit so she wouldn’t get frustrated and quit, but the game was serious fun. And I love mice and respect them enough to know that they too can lead epic lives, Redwall anyone?

I also love the story, the miniatures, all the components, the art, the smell of the game, the weight of the box, everything.

It’s a great game that is a little challenging to get others into, but once you do it’s totally worth it.

This game is so expertly themed and designed you sincerely get the feeling of playing an old NES game. It’s simple, easy to teach, and each game is different.

It’s so much like a NES game, that if you play enough games, every so often one will feel like maybe the game is cheating, or there might be a few bugs or instructions that you have to look up in Nintendo Power, other than that the game play is mostly smooth.

The expansion (which is in a box that looks like a Game Boy cartridge) breaths new life into the game if you’ve had it awhile.

This game is perfect for both a quick lunch-break game with casual gamers, or a warm-up game for an epic night of sweaty, angry gaming.
