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?

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...

Dominion, winner of the 'Spiel des Jahres in 2009, is the game that launched a thousand ... other games sort of just like it, but different. Ken B. declared that Dominion was "Good shit!"
