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.

An Area Influence/Area Control game that just didn't sit well with myself or my group of gamers. Poor components, repetitive gameplay and very little variety from one game to the next make this one of the more challenging games to recommend.

Star Trek Expeditions is a mechanically solid 1-4 player game that will challenge even the most die hard groups of cooperative players at its hardest difficulty level. The games production values, including the wonderfully pre-painted miniatures, are of great quality and make, while the game itself has incredible potential for future growth.

Confusion: Espionage and Deception in the Cold War is a remake of a classic 1992 Robert Abbott abstract strategy game. Although its heritage most certainly falls in line with games like Checkers and Chess, it does introduce a splash of deduction to create an incredibly intelligent game that requires a heavy dose of tactics and strategy to succeed. Wonderful production values and inspiring gameplay make this one a keeper.

Battle Cry is the original entry of the Commands and Colors system of low complexity war games that was created Richard Borg and now includes a multitude of well known titles including Memoir '44, Command and Colors: Ancients and Battlelore. Although more simplistic than those later released titles, it still remains a fun and engaging experience that can be set up, taught and concluded in a very short amount of time.

King of Tokyo is a thoroughly enjoyable light dice rolling game that is both engaging and stylish. Although the base mechanics may seem somewhat familiar, the introduction of Monster powers through a set of 66 completely unique cards keeps the game fresh and rewarding. A definite recommendation for those seeking a no holds barred slugfest filler game that can be played in a relatively short amount of time.

Gears of War: The Board Game is a solid, yet repetitive Cooperative Game that utilizes the Video Game license well enough. There are some nice mechanical systems in play here, especially the use of Order Cards dual functionality as both actions and a players health.....but the use of dice to resolve combat leaves much of the games tactical choices up to chance.

Sentinels of the Multiverse has a multitude of retails flaws as well as an overall lack of polish, none of which hamper the sheer enjoyment of a game that is as close to representing a Battle of Heroes vs. Villain that I've seen to date. Fans of Cooperative games, Comics and Super Heroes should definitely give this game a chance.

Singapore is a light weight, Euro Style Tile Placement game that probably won't set the gaming world on fire, but does enough interesting things mechanically within it's gameplay system to make it creative and challenging for a wide range of gamer types.

Revolver is a fun, quick playing asymmetrical stand-alone card game whose theme captures the mood and essence of an old west shootout almost perfectly. One of the best filler games of 2011.
