Citadels, by Bruno Faidutti , is one of the earliest role selection games. Although we don't have a single review or discussion of it here on the site other than Ken. B's mini review on the game's directory page , I know it is one that many of you have played. Back in the day, it was recommend to new gamers almost as frequently as Lost Cities. So what ever happened to it? It is still in print, so people must still be buying it and playing it. How about you?...

Lords of Waterdeep was declared the most divisive game of 2012 here on the site. It could also have been called the most written about and discussed game. All the articles we have on it are listed towards the bottom of it's page in our directory here: Lords of Waterdeep So what do you think? Do you love it or hate it? Do you still play it?

"Well, Bob, here we are on the verge of another season of rampant violence and mayhem! Let's take a look at all of the leagues and see who's going to come out on top in each one and then in the interleague playoffs leading to the Blood Bowl!"

Last week I got to visit The Eagle & Child pub in Oxford, England, where Tolkien and CS Lewis used to hang out together and ostensibly discuss writing, although I suspect there was some beer dringking going on as well. There was also an awesome Tolkien exhibition in the library, but I totally screwed up and didn't reserve tickets, so I didn't get to see it. Bummer. Anyway, after walking in the foot steps of Tolkien, I'm in the mood for talking War of the Ring. It's a much loved game...

With the “upcoming” (things have always been a little “wibbly wobbly timey wimey” with the release dates of GaleForce 9's products) release of the Doctor Expansion packs for Doctor Who: Time of the Daleks, I reached out to Andrew Haught, designer of the title, to speak to him about the game, expansions, and all things “Whovian.”

Puerto Rico, the game that popularized the 'role selection' mechanism, was hugely popular among Eurogamers, and is considered by many to be a classic. Here however, it never got much love. In fact one of our staff writers, Malloc, wrote this blog entitled This Just in...Puerto Rico Sucks Matt Thrower Damned it with faint praise declaring Puerto Rico: Top of it's Class. Shame about the class. So what do you think? Love it? Hate it? Do you Play it?

What is it? Boardgaming with awesome people. We call it Trashfest but any and all games are welcome. If you dig it, bring it. When is it? The weekend of November 9th - 11th. This is the weekend after Veteran's Day, which falls on a Monday. Vernon is located halfway between Boston and NYC; just a 2 hour drive from either great city.

Runebound is on it's 3rd Edition. I've never played the first edition, but have been told that it was a hot mess. Some people would argue that Runebound 2nd Edition was also a hot mess, while for others it is a much loved favorite adventure game. And then there is Runebound 3rd Edition which one of reviews declared was "sheer brilliance." No one had much to say in response to that. Literally, the Runebound Third Edition Review has been read over two thousand times, without a single comment. Therefore I was rather surprised when a passionate...
