Kickstarter Review #3: Mythic Wars: Clash of the Gods

On this review we return to Books and Brews for another Kickstarter release called Mythic Wars: Clash of the Gods which can currently be found here.  We would like to thank Excalibre Games for sending us a copy of their prototype for review.  On this visit Claire had the Ace Perry Pear Cider which carried a pronounced pear flavor, sweet and tart with a dry finish, while I had the Grinch That Stole Thanksgiving which was a gingerbread spiced ale with a warm, tasty finish.  Come with us as we compete in battles of mythic proportions!

Drink till you're wonky

No, actually drink responsibly!  Today’s review we returned to Redemption Alewerks for a very light segment to bring you a dexterity game known as Wonky.  I once again, enjoyed the Taxman Deduction, and did not have so much that it impaired my ability to stack the cubes!  This is a very unique approach to stacking objects to keep them from falling.  It’s very different from other dexterity games like Jenga, or Kewbz.  Follow us into what will most likely be one of the most straight forward games that we have reviewed to date!

You Gonna Build A Wall?

Yeah I know, but considering everything currently going on in politics, I had to give it that title.  In today’s segment we return to Heady Hollow to play Carcassonne: The Dice Game to build walls!  We enjoyed the Rowdy Root Beer and 60 Horses Scotch Ale to help us roll for those fortifying castle walls.  Carcassonne as a dice game?  This is a very interesting concept compared to it’s predecessor with nearly a hundred tiles and multi-colored meeples sweeping across the land.  However, we still have the same end goal, to build lots of walls!  This version is essentially a micro version of the same concept, except we’re using dice instead of tiles and this version can be played in 10 minutes.  The idea came about for a tenth anniversary edition when many gamers backed the idea for dice rolling mechanics for the original.  Follow us back into France as we continue to build cities faster than ever.

Kickstarter Review #2: Nightlancer

Hello all, today we take a look at a game currently on Kickstarter located here called Nightlancer. We would like to thank Adversity Games for sending us a prototype of their game for review. This is a competitive cyberpunk board game for 1 to 4 players. The game can be played solo, cooperatively between other players, or competitively against your opponent/s. Between a futuristic setting with a cyberpunk theme, I knew right off the bat that this is a game that I wanted to play. Follow us into a time of great tribulation and hardship to fight for hope and achieve great notoriety.
