CGE


How's your spelling? Can you come up with words using only a certain amount of letters? Are you good at guessing? If so, you'll be good at Letter Jam, a new card game available from CGE. In it, players are given a set of letters they must spell words from, but they can't see their own letter, only those of the other players. Spell words and guess which letter you have before time runs now.

A new expansion is coming for Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization from CGE. It's called Leaders & Wonders and, as you would expect, it adds leaders that you can recruit as you build up your civilization, as well as amazing wonders that they can construct. Of course, war is a major player in all things world history, and there's new cards for that as well.

Ah, Saturday. The start of the weekend. For many of us here in the states, though, it's an hour shorter. To be honest, I already went ahead and moved my clocks ahead an hour. It's not like I've got anything other than this scheduled for the day. I mean, It's Saturday!
But I also need to get you these reviews.

Today we have: Dead Throne, Draconis Invasion, 7 Ghosts, Robin Hood and the Merry Men, Secret Unknown Stuff: Escape from Dulce, Flip and Find’s Diner, Welcome to Centerville, Master of Orion: Conquest, Codenames: Duet, Portal of Heroes, Professor Evil and the Citadel of Time, and Felicity.

Hello, Saturday. How are you? I'm alright. Still a little sick. Bit of a lingering cough, but I'm working through it. So no gaming will be had by me today (I'm actually just contemplating a nap). But I hope that your Saturday is a bit more exciting than what I've got going on.
At the very least, though, before I take another shot of medicine and go lay down, I gotta make sure you get those reviews you so desperately desire.

This week we have: Museum Heist, Race for the Galaxy iOS Expansions, Battle for Rokugan, Yogi, The Pursuit of Happiness: Community Expansion, Bubblee Pop, XCOM: Evolution Expansion, Dicetopia, Hot Shots, NewSpeak, Dragonfire, Codenames: Duet, Outpost Siberia, and Mage Wars Academy Warlord and Forcemaster Expansions.

Today we have: Small World, Galactic Warlord Battle For Dominion, Dice Hospital, Shahrazad, Dark Souls, Bushido, Dungeon Crawler The Thorn Expansion, Star Trek: Ascendancy, VS 2PCG Legacy Expansion, Alchemists The King’s Golem Expansion, Super Dungeon Explore Arena, Terra Mystica App, Tomb Trader, Jaipur App, Bio-Logic, Dragon Tower, Gnomi, and Zombie Tower 3D.

Hey kids. It's Saturday! If you're like me, you're at the LGS, hanging out and talking/playing games. I hope you're doing that, anyway. I mean, it's what Saturday's for!
It's also for reviews. So let's get to it.

This week we have: Heldentaufe, Monster Trap, Galaxy of Train: New Order, Lords of Hellas, Bestiary 6, New York Slice, Orphan Black, Sailing Towards Osiris, Perdition's Mouth: Abyssal Rift, Moons, Adrenaline, and Terraforming Mars.

Hello Saturday! How are you? Is everything going well? Of course it is! It's Saturday!

So, let's not wait around. Let's get right to the reviews so we can get back to it being Saturday. Personally, I'm thinking of watching a movie and questioning Netflix's algorithms in what "more like this" really means...

Today we have: The Pirate Republic, Kingdomino, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Board Game - Shadows of the Past, Adrenaline, Ave Roma, Hero Realms, Food Truck Champion, Sorcerers' Skirmish, Carcassonne: Amazonas, Oceanos, The Flow of History, Citadels, Broken Legions, Haspelknecht, and GKR: Heavy Hitters.

It's another beautiful day here in Atlanta. The clouds are out. It's raining. There was dense fog this morning.
What? You don't think that's beautiful weather?
You know what they call a place that has nothing but "beautiful, sunny days"? The desert. Relatively few things live there.
You know what they call a place that has rain all the time? The rain forest, some of the most bio-diverse and bio-dense areas of the planet! So there!
Ok... that got weirdly antagonistic for no reason. Maybe I should just go check out some game reviews. Yeah. That's a good idea.

Today we have: Everzone, Portal, The Captain Is Dead, Triumvirate of the Imperium - Inquisitor Greyfax, Triumvirate of the Imperium - Belisarius Cawl, Raise Your Goblets, The Three Little Pigs, Concordia, Adrenaline, Hands in the Sea, Neuroshima Hex iPad Edition, 7 Wonders: Duel, Klask, Rise of Mafia, and Cavern Tavern.

It's Saturday. That means it's the weekend. That means I'm happy. Went grocery shopping this morning to get ingredients to make turkey soup as well as this year's fruitcake. Still need to get one last thing (that has its own theme song for the activity of getting it). That'll start getting ready today, while the final assembly will be tomorrow. What to do in the meantime? Maybe put together some Kingdom Death and play some Guild Ball. Also, give you the reviews you so desperately desire.

Today we have: Terraforming Mars, Adrenaline, Rubicon Models Panzer III, Star Wars Dobble (AKA - Spot It), Lord of the Rings The Card Game, Captain Sonar, Planet Rush, Fight for Olympus, Rollet, and A Game of Thrones: Hand of the King.

It's also October.
I mean, seriously, can it really get that much better than this? Oh, yeah, *puts on some Type O Negative while working on the post* There we go.

Today we have: Patchwork, Epic Roll: Eclipse, Arcadia Quest, Tutti Frutti, True Messiah, Eclipse, Trickerion: Legends of Illusion, Dodge Dice, Grifters, Codenames: Pictures, and Agamemnon.

One of the hit games of the past several months has been CGE's Codenames. Well, now a new version of the game, designed with a more adult player base is coming to Gen Con and then exclusively to Target stores.

It's Saturday. Those of you that are at KingdomCon, be sure to selfie responsibly. #RossFace
