One night during the summer of 1997, Josh Look's cool uncle who owned a comic shop taught him how to play Magic the Gathering. The game set off his imagination in a way that he could not sleep that night, and he's been fascinated by games ever since. He spent many afternoons during his high school years skipping homework to play Dungeons & Dragons and paint Warhammer minatures, going on to discover hobby board games in his early 20s. He's been a writer for Fortress Ameritrash and is the creator and co-host of the geek culture podcast, The Wolfman's Lounge. He enjoys games that encourage a heavy amount of table talk and those that explore their themes beyond just their settings.

Glamazons vs The Curse of the Chainmail Bikini Review

Board Game Reviews JL Josh Look Updated January 28, 2015 754   0
Disclaimer - Matt Loter, the designer of Glamazons vs The Curse of the Chainmail Bikini (referred to as "Glamazons" from here on out) is one of my closest friends. That being said, I'm the first to let him know when he's done something I disapprove of, usually accompanied with what some would call "colorful" language. Oh, such wonderfully foul, colorful language. In short, despite our relationship, it's well within my nature to be brutally honest, and I think you're stupid if you even had the slightest notion of me being biased.  Suck it.

Ironically enough, it's a line about the Millennium Falcon that best sums up how I feel about Star Trek:  Atack Wing, the new game from Wizkids that borrows the Flight Path system from FFG's Star Wars:  X-Wing.  "She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts." Let's get the glaring fact that Attack Wing does not look as good as X-Wing out of the way first.  Yes, the paint aps aren't great.  There's a couple things that are downright ugly.  The cardstock is thin, and the scale?  There isn't any.  Seing as how Attack Wing's...

What was clearly meant to be a joke now has a pretty audible ring of truth to it. Someone would read a review and respond with something along the lines of, "This game sounds really fun, can't wait to play it on the IOS in a year." And how can we blame that person? We've been spoiled by some really great implementations of some of our favorite games as of late. In a few cases, I've found that I might actually like a few games that I had initially written off (such is the case with...
