I'm looking at a box, and one of my earliest memories is looking back at me. An implacable figure in a blue-black jumpsuit, eyes obscured behind a helmet and joints protected by padding. On his chest is a gold badge emblazoned with a single word: Dredd. I drew this character in felt tip, from memory, before I was even able to read, without knowing who he was. That's how deep Judge Dredd had embedded in the psyche of '70s Britain.

The box art has a charming Tintin look, without that annoying quiff. All pith helmets and tangled undergrowth. Inside there are two decks of cards. The big one has a tab to unwrap the shrink, but the small one doesn't. I try to open it with my thumb and, to my horror, I mark a card. Diving to the rulebook in a mild panic, I determine the damage is to a map card, part of the board. So that's okay.

Last year I played a ridiculous number of new games as potential inclusions for The Board Game Book. The editor wanted a certain quality bar for inclusion which, in this site's terms, is "3.5 stars. Ok so we don't actually allow half stars but you get the idea. Essentially: not all the games that failed to make the cut were bad. Some of them were bad. Either way, you deserve to know about them. So here they are.

All the dakka, none of the plastic.
