Boards & Brews at Home: Dimension

Even on Christmas Eve we’re releasing posts for our blog!  However, we’re keeping it light with a game we gave a micro review to last year at Gen Con in 2015.  Since that time, we decided to purchase it and we figured a more detailed closer look would be good.  We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our Mead provided by New Day Meadery in Fountain Square, along with our abundance of cheese and meat that we purchased from the Cheese Shop in Keystone.  Our bodies are filled with much happiness and it’s time to jump into a somewhat dexterity-like, abstract puzzle game for 1 - 4 players.

Have Fun Stormin' Da Castle!

For this week, we returned to The Well off of 116th St. in Fishers and partake in caffeine to assist us in building more castle walls.  We seem to be building lots of walls lately.  This will be no exception in this review either because we are playing the popular yet out of print tile-laying game, Carcassonne: The Castle.  It's always nice to play in public locations, as we generally have strangers who approach us asking about the games we are playing.  This happened with a few people today and we are always glad to see others taking an interest in tabletop gaming.  As far as the beverages, we both enjoyed the spicy snowmen which were white mochas with spicy cinnamon.  They were sweet and had a pleasant kick of spiciness to them.  Very recommended if you stop in!  While there are obvious parts of this game that overlap with the original Carcassonne, there are some differences that separate it.

Boards & Brews at Home: Wise and Otherwise

We’re back with another at home segment to play Wise and Otherwise, a bluffing party game for 2 - 6 players.  Do you like to stretch your creative and witty thinking to bluff your way through a game?  How much do you know about old proverbs and phrases throughout history?  How good are you at deceiving others around you to believing that something sounds convincing, but is entirely false?  Are you a wise individual or just a smarty pants?  You’ll have to really prove your creativity in this one to get to the end first, so read on to see our thoughts.
