Games Workshop’s skirmish-style miniature game set in the world of Warhammer 40,000 (or colloquially 40K), Kill Team boasts a core box that is bonkers. It’s packed full of miniatures, lovely cardboard, and bullet-pocked ruins. The rulebook details over a dozen force lists and you can …

Return to ancient Japan, when the Chinese emperor gifted to his Japanese counterpart a giant panda bear. In Takenoko, players cared for this precious gift by cultivating land, irrigating it, and growing bamboo for the ever-hungry panda. We recently played it on Game the Game, in its adorable…

There are some games you just know are for you when you see them. Gizmos’s bright plastic marbles pouring out of a fancy dispenser grabbed me immediately. I love Potion Explosion and have come to accept that I’m a sucker for marble dispensers in games. For the leery, don’t worry; Gizmos is more g…

Let’s play catch-up: If you haven’t heard of T.I.M.E Stories then lend me your ears and focus. This 2015 release from Space Cowboys was at the forefront of the tabletop narrative puzzle/escape room movement. This isn’t exactly like Unlock! or Exit, rather it’s a…

Published in 1959, Risk continues to entertain gamers everywhere. However, the game isn’t without its flaws and, like Monopoly, it can devolve into hours of mindless dice-chucking.
