We don't mince words at LoB. Pressed for time in the big city, there's no point skirting around the point when evaluating a game.

Our regular geeklist reports have provided ample supplies of sharp quotes, both positive and negative.

This is an ongoing project: please feel free to remind me of any I missed and add to it as appropriate.
