Your soldier’s cover has been largely destroyed by those last shots.  She stands up, alone, and needs to make her two shots count or they will be her last.  The player assesses the situation and…  rolls 11 dice to find out if that happened or not.

When I sat down to write this, it was going to be an awards piece. Something to celebrate the very best games I've played this year. It was all planned out: I had a series of categories, a winner in each and an overall game of the year. A pleasant exercise in rewarding excellence to cap off an excellent year of releases.

Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game, released in 2008 by Fantasy Flight Games, took our site by storm. Described by the publisher as "an exciting game of mistrust, intrigue, and the struggle for survival," it did not disappoint. Although it may not have been the first hidden traitor game, it's initial popularity certainly conrtibuted to the many subsequent hidden traitor games designed and released over the next decade.

Very emotional and impactful movie. No wonder there are mental health trigger warnings all over this thing. I would even go so far to say that I don't think I could comfortably describe this as a "music movie." That being said, I don't remember the last time I've seen a movie so perfectly suited to not only be nominated but to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards. I thought it was excellent but I wouldn't even put this in my top ten of the year. I think the Academy will be all over this one....

Once upon a time (that’s how all fairy tales start, right?), there was a father who loved his daughter very, very much. And one of the things they adored to do together was play board games. The father’s favorite game was called Scythe. And it was about Engines and building them and the struggle for power by pseudo political factions in Eastern Europa…the kind of stuff that little girls don’t find particularly interesting. They decided they would make a game something like his favorite game only using things that she enjoyed, Like little ponies, and pies and magical gems....

Cosmic Encounter has been around since 1977, making it older than many of you reading this. A 42nd Anniversary Edition was just recenly released by Fantasy Flight Games. Cosmic Encounter may be the game that appears most frequently in our Top Five thread in Trash Talk. But what do you think of it? Do you have a favorite edition? Which expansions do you add? What do you leave out? Do you love it or hate it? Do you still play it? ...
