At On Board Games we often rate games that we have purchased or have long held in our collection. We also rate games we’ve played at our local game groups or events we’ve attended.

Some of the games we review have been given to us by publishers. It is our goal to provide objective reviews regardless of how we get the games. We are creating our reviews for the listeners and not for the companies, so will attempt to remain impartial and honest.

While we welcome game submissions from companies, we do not guarantee that a game submitted will be reviewed. This is a geeklist of the product we have received for review. Let us know know what you think about these games, who knows, we may refer to your critique when we are are doing our reviews.

Once we've covered them on the podcast I'll delete them.

I have received multiple packages from Bucephalus Games, so many I may just have to do a show on all of their games at once. I'll list them all in one entry.

Received November 2008
Living Labyrinth I have tried this out several times; it is a nice maze game that will work for filler.

The Suicide Bomber Card Game BOOOM!!! Controversial topic, just for the sake of controversy? I'm interested, but the art looks inconsistent and when the focus seems to rest on being controversial I don't really have high hopes for game play.

Received 2009

Timestreams: Deck 1 – Stone Age vs. Future Tech am Timestreams: Deck 2 – Medieval vs. Modern Day I love time travel as a theme, possibly even more than pirates and vikings, I can't wait to get these to the table.
Roman Taxi This one interests me because it looks very unusual.
The Perfect Pyramid: Four Card Games in One More than one game in the box? Might be perfect for holiday travels.
Michelangelo Perhaps it's due to my fine arts background, but this one appeals. I hope I can find other like-minded folks willing to try this out.
Kachina Once again, a relatively novel setting. It's this kind of game that makes me have high hopes for this company.
Top Ten: The Bill of Rights This one looks like it might be good for the library educational games section, but then again, these guys have a history of sticking in content designed to offend... er... I mean "encourage thought", so maybe I'll play it first.
The Ten Commandments See Above.

I recorded a review for this back in April and thought it made it on a podcast. It hasn't yet, so if I can find the recording it will appear soon. If not, it may be a little longer before it appears on the show.
