Zombie Dice

Zombie Dice is a good quick game. It’s very quickly played and portable. I find it’s a great way to kill time at conventions (or during downtime at work.) Because it is easily learned, it’s also a good game to bring to parties, especially if there are a lot of non-gamers there.

I prefer to play the app version on my phone, which has both a free version and paid version with more features.

The only downside is that it can get monotonous after many plays in a row.

The river expansion didn’t leave very much of an impression on me one way or another. It is an expansion in the most literal sense… there are more tiles.

The river is completed first and the usual starting tile can either be mixed in or played immediately after the river is completed. This adds a few more starting points once the base set is in play.

I liked the river expansion well enough, but I wouldn’t miss it. I will probably switch back and forth between using it and not upon future plays.

The King of Tokyo Power Up! Expansion is a logical addition to the game, giving each monster their own special abilities. When I first played the King of Tokyo base game, I specifically felt as though this element was missing. The character specific powers make the game more interesting and improve replay value.

In this expansion, you also get a new monster: Pandakai. He’s adorable and powerful.

If you ask me, the Power Up! expansion is a necessary addition to King of Tokyo.

I played this game for the first time over the weekend. There are two versions of the game in the same box. We played the Standard version.

First of all, if you’re going to play this game, make sure you have the time. The game is divided into 30 turns and it took us about 5 hours for a two player game. That was our first time, though, so I’m sure it will be shorter with subsequent plays.

The gameplay is very fun and once you get the hang of it, very easy. Basically, you’re trying to get from one system to another to buy and sell goods. The goal of the game is to have the most credits at the end of 30 turns. If you can get the License to Drill, dropping drills when you pass asteroids is a good way to get some extra credits. Also, fame counts towards credits at the end of the game, so don’t ignore that aspect (like we did- oops).

Overall, I thought this game was a lot of fun and it kept my attention.

It’s pirate themed Munchkin, so of course it’s fun! The ships are fun and play more or less like steeds.

There are only two expansions for this game and I wish there were more. I find myself not playing his version as often as original Munchkin or Munchkin Cthulhu, but not for lack of quality. I think I just forget about ti sometimes.

All in all, it’s a pretty good Munchkin and I recommend it.

Arkham Horror

Arkham Horror was the game that changed it all for us. We bought it at a con YEARS ago and our game collection has been growing exponentially ever since.

Our first play took a very long time between reading the rules and setting everything up, but it is fairly easy once you get the hang of the phases. We have successfully taught it to other friends in our gaming group in an evening.

The game has good replay value and offers enough of a challenge to stay interesting without being too frustrating.

This is one of my favorite games that I don’t play often enough. I highly recommend it. There are some challenging expansions to explore as well.
