There Will Be Games

This review has been removed by the author.

I've pulled this review because a source I trust 100% PMed me to warn me that the designer has a history of right wing, Trumpist posts including anti-BLM, anti-immigrant, and other bigoted opinions. I checked the Facebook account in question and I did in fact see a number of vile comments- let alone lots of deleted comments which suggests that there were likely more.

I have absolutely no tolerance for these kinds of values and will not be supporting this game or this designer with my review.  The game in question is an outstanding design, which makes it all the more tragic that fascistic, hateful politics are present in our hobby. We must drive these people out, full stop.

There Will Be Games is an inclusive space dedicated to diversity and representation in the hobby. Games made by people like this have no place on our site and I apologize for not doing the due diligence to get this designer before posting the review.

Iron Helm
A wonderful solo game that captures a vintage D&D feel.

Senior Board Game Reviews Editor

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 FortressAT.com and Nohighscores.com 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.
