Interview - Anthony Gill - Dungeon Scroll



Dungeon scroll is a game I discovered as an app a while ago, and more recently as a card game. Anthony Gill was kind enough to give me a few minutes to talk about how this game went from an app to a physical game.

When you get the rules wrong - Random Encounter replay





Well.....

we all have messed the rules up on a game. Admit it. I am guilty of this and was informed by IDW Games on the review of random encounter that i played it far too random and you are suppose to assign the armies to each of the 5 piles rather than just blindly assign them (I took the random far too literally).

So......

Interview Stephen McLaughlin - Co-Designer Of The Duke



There is no shame to admit this. I love the duke. It was my first abstract when I started collection board games and I still love it to this day. Co-Designer Stephen McLaughlin answered some fanboyish questions I had about the game.

The gaming view from Japan is amazing

I have always been a fan of Japan. When i use to be big into video games i would often try to find the weirdest or most unique games i could and buy the for my PSX and PS2. I had tons of games. King of crusher, Pepsi Man, Vacuum Cleaner Kids. Those are ones just off the top of my head. As i have played more and more board games i have wanted to try to find some odd games from japan and i stumbled across this site. Board Game Every Day list tons and tons of games from Japan. It has releases from all over and it's amazing. now grant it, i can't read it but i can translate it and find the games on Board Game Geek. So i would like to show you a couple i have found on the site. If you have some free time it's super interesting to look at all the things posted at this site.
