I guess I'm the "cowboy brute" in this here Review Rodeo. And some of these rodeo animals do suffer some kicks and punches.

This time we have:

  • A game that really reminded me of how worthless and pointless the worst Eurogames are
  • A game where you throw meeples on the table and then send them to hell
  • A game where I developed a clever mime to indicate "Frank Branham" that got mistaken as "has breasts" by other players
  • A game that made me die a little inside that resembles Bingo

I doubt any of you will be rushing out to buy any of these games, but it should be clear who the winners of this bronc-busting contest are.

If you're the designers of one of the two bad games, I'm not sorry. Don't release crap.

Sometime in the early 1980s, MichaelBarnes’ parents thought it would be a good idea to buy him a board game to keep him busy with some friends during one of those high-pressure, “free” timeshare vacations. It turned out to be a terrible idea, because the game was TSR’s Dungeon! - and the rest, as they say, is history. Michael has been involved with writing professionally about games since 2002, when he busked for store credit writing for Boulder Games’ newsletter. He has written for a number of international hobby gaming periodicals and popular Web sites. From 2004-2008, he was the co-owner of Atlanta Game Factory, a brick-and-mortar retail store. He is currently the co-founder of and as well as the Editor-in-Chief of Miniature Market’s Review Corner feature. He is married with two childen and when he’s not playing some kind of game he enjoys stockpiling trivial information about music, comics and film.
