I don't often ask for Donations, but keeping up with not only the amount of time that is devoted to provide these Videos to the community, but also the work, filming, editing, writings as well as the YouTube Channel and the www.drakkenstrikevideos.com website has become expensive. Any donations would be GREATLY appreciated. You can donate at my website if you are at all interested....and even a $1.00 would help.

People's love for particular games can be attributed to a number of factors; the games mechanics, its theme, the company developing it, or even the designer behind its design. It can be one specific aspect that draws their attention, or a mixture of many that drive them to make that inital purchase.

For me, it's my inherent need to collect and find games that bring out the inner child inside of me, and the most common way for me to experience that moment between Wishlist and Wantlist is to discover "What Comes Inside the Box".

I developed this ongoing series of Videos to give users like myself an opportunity to see, in Full HD, what they will be purchasing before they make either a good or regretful purchase.

I am not a journalist, or someone who is at all intimate with the intricacies of Video Editing. I basically went out, bought a Camcorder and some Software, and just started filming. I am a Gamer through and through and do this only as an honest attempt to help other like-minded gamers whom might likewise feel in the dark about what to purchase and what they might wish to avoid. The most honest way to do this is to just speak how I feel and allow for the Camcorder to pick out the details of these games that I bring to you in Full HD.

Before we start, I would like to invite everyone to see my current game room. It's not much, but I try to keep it organized and a place that my friends and family can enjoy.

Comparisons to Race for the Galaxy are far fetched as this game completely stands on it's own merits. 51st State has several unique factions that play quite differently from one another and a variety of options that one must chose from turn to turn. Well designed and well thought out.

Drakkenstrike's Components Breakdown Video Review Series in HD

70th Video
Resolution = 1080p HD

2 to 4 Players
Playtime = ~90-120 Minutes

An incredibly clever design structure that utilizes dice in a fresh new way, without relying solely on the randomness of one's rolls. One of my favorite games of Essen 2010, and one of the most charming games released this year.

A rich theme doesn't save what I was hoping to be yet another good derivative in the deck building genre.

2 to 5 Players
Playtime = ~60-90 Minutes

Another completely inconspicuous title that left a great impression with our group even after repeated sessions. Great choices to make each round, a quick playtime and numerous ways to acquire Victory Points all make Navegador another gem of 2010.
