Want to know what components you get with a game? What to know what a game looks like? What to know how it works? Want to learn the basic rules and flow of play?

In these reviews, I take a pictorial approach, by taking photographs of key components and gameplay, and organizing them with accompanying text in order to teach you how to play a game, and showcase what it is all about, along with some analysis. These reviews might prove helpful in making an informed decision before purchasing a game, or perhaps to have your friends read ahead of a game session to help them get a basic sense of how to play the game beforehand. I appreciate the diversity of reviewer styles on BGG, but for a short defence of my own reviewing style, see my post here.

This list is arranged alphabetically. To see my most recent reviews, click here.

If you are a game designer or publisher and would like me to consider your game for review, feel free to send me an expression of interest by GeekMail. Generally speaking I am only willing to commit the time to writing a review for games that I am personally enthusiastic about and consider to be worthwhile recommending to other gamers, so please contact me directly to help determine whether your game would be a suitable candidate for one of my reviews.
