While my journey to reviewing games actually started with video games, I decided to write board game reviews for BGG! The reason behind this was just to help other players if they wanted to try the game before getting it. I truly believe that I want to help everyone here in some shape. Now, I'll update this list for each game that I reviewed with a short opinion on the game from my review. My goal is not only to help those who want to buy that game but don't have much time to look at everything and to have conversations with other people who either love the game or dislike the game. I just love to hear what others think of a certain game!

A few notes: One, all games that I do review is from my collection so I do have a nice sized collection to cover me for some time at least. I wish I could cover more games but I need to spend money in order to do so but I do hope to cover more games in the future once more plays for certain games happens.

Now, only one game came from a game designer who requested me to do a review so while I don't receive them, I do accept anyone's game if they want a review for it. I'm always open to help others at least spread the word of their game. If your interested, just send me a PM and we can go from there.

Other then that, just enjoy the read and discuss away everyone and thanks for stopping by!!!

Review #1

For my first review, I had to pick a game that I really liked. I had to pick a game that I knew it was amazing. I just didn't know it was about building decks. What's more fun of building decks while building decks? To take a mechanic and just turn it upside down is something I really, really liked. Plus I'm a sucker for out there themes for games. This continues to be played with my group every week and I love this game!

Review #2

Many would just turn away when it comes to the theme for Rococo but I beg to differ. Now, the main reason why I got this game is because my girlfriend really loves to wear dresses everyday so I thought getting Rococo would be a great game for her to play. And I was right. With a deck building like mechanic and creating some beautiful dresses and suits, Rococo is a great game to play and is really pretty to look at. Try thid game if you can, cause I really liked it!

Review #3

While Settlers of America first introduced me to the pick-up and deliver mechanic, Heartland was the game that took it over the top for me. It's such a small game but packs a lot of punch! If you can play this game to see if others like the pick-up and deliver mechanic, try this game and go from there! This is a wonderful little game and I really liked this game!

Flip City Review

Mixing deck building with doubled sided cards make this for an interesting game indeed. While this game doesn't get on the table as often, it's still one of my favorite games to play. I played it solo here and there and I really like the mechanics for the game and everything I see here is just a nice, little game that packs quite a good punch.

Tokaido Review

There's a lot of games that I really like and Tokaido is one of them. What attracted to me the most of this game is two things: the simple mechanics of how the game is played and the look of the game. Because this game looks beautiful and the game is simple to learn and fun to play. A light game, this is one game everyone should enjoy if you want to travel the long road of Tokaido.

Munchkin Gloom Review

Munchkin is the very game that either you love it or hate it. While this is a standalone game, I would rather say it's more towards an expansion to Gloom, a dark, yet very funny game of trying to make your family as unhappy as possible, before you kill them off. The game just adds more cards for Gloom and that's a good thing, I think. I don't know, you either get this because you already have Gloom or you don't cause Munchkin.

Scoville Review

The very first TMG game I added to my collection was this wonderful game. The pepper meeples is what really won me over but the gameplay itself was a huge hit within my group for it's mechanics and the look of the game. It's one of those games that makes you really like the game because of how it plays. It's really a blast with more players because you get to hear what others think of the game. The game is a lot of fun and I highly recommend it!

Trains Review

Dominion may be a game that introduced me to the world of deck building games but it was Trains that really made me fall in love with it. While it does burrow a lot from Dominion, you now have to work on a board to expand your rails and earn more victory points then just using your cards. The game is a lot of fun and I hope to get the expansion so I can continue to play this game over and over again.

Parfum Review

A recurring theme when it comes to me buying games is the fact that my girlfriend, at this point, is a board gamer now. So, I have to look for games that I think she would love. And she really likes this game. Now, I understand that many might not like the game because of the look of the game but I tell ya, if your significant other liked this game, you would love it too!

Penny Press Review

A theme about making some newspapers. Well, that had me sold when I first heard of the game. This is a very fun game to play with my group because the theme is there. It's like oozing at this point. It's even oozing right out of the box right now as I type this. The game is a lot of fun and I really love the look of the game. This is regarded highly within my gaming group and they love it all the more.

Dwarves Inc. Review

This is the very first game I received from a designer and this is a fun game. While we don't play this often, when we do, we have a lot of fun with the game. It's simple enough to learn and fun enough for players to understand completely. Plus, there's a lot of gems here!

Evolution Review

Ah yes, another fun game right here folks. And let me tell you something. Just between you and me, my girlfriend really, really likes this game. This is where I first learned something. My girlfriend can be competitive (in a fun way!) and ruthless (in a fun way?). She loves being a carnivore here in this game and this game looks and plays so good. By the way, stay away from the carnivore, you'll thank me later.

The Manhattan Project Review

Oh man, this wonderful game. I gave it a solid ten out of ten for a reason. Blending a theme we don't actually look towards a fun game, mixed with worker placement and you got yourself a classic in the making. I bet you that 10 years from now, this will be declared a classic game because of the mechanics it has working for it. I love this game a lot, my group loves this game a lot and I know that this will remain in my collection for a very long time.

Istanbul Review

Nothing warms my heart more then playing a game with rubies in them. While the game isn't for everyone that wanted a bit more depth, Istanbul deserves all the praise it gets as a family game that everyone can learn very quickly. I really like this game and believe that everyone should at least play it once before you decide to buy it!

Power Grid Review

For well over many years, Power Grid continues to be hailed as a classic among board games. With a simple auction system and a changing market of resources, Power Grid has become a classic in my own collection. Secret Santa last year gifted me this game and I wasn't expecting it actually and whoever that Santa may be, thank you. Because now, my group enjoys this game very much!

Sushi Go! Review

One heck of a quick game this can be and the artwork for it is super cute! Just use this game as a very quick filler and you got a simple game right here that almost everyone will love. You might not like it if you don't like sushi or a quick game or something along those lines.

Harbour Review

Whenever I play this game with my group, we often have a lot of fun with this game. Once again, TMG manages to make a great game all fit within this very small box. Think Le Harve but much, much smaller. I love the look of the game and I have it proudly in my collection next to Flip City and I'm thinking that more TMG small box games are in order at this point for me to add!

Belfort Review

Everything about this wonderful game is just that: wonderful. The main board where you place all your buildings and such is really awesome because it's not a traditional square board at all. The game is a lot of fun and gets you thinking on what you want to build next because of the resources and the worker placement. A great, fun game for anyone who wants to drive into worker placement games with a twist to it!

Smash Up Review

Quickly becoming the most played game in my collection, Smash Up proves to be a lot of fun! I mean, a lot of fun. So much so that I had to invest more into the game so we can have different factions fighting against each other. The game is a lot of fun with more players because it's just chaos everywhere. I really recommend this game to those who just want to have fun!

Smash Up: Awesome Level 9000 Review

If there's one thing I love about expansions is just that: to expand on an already amazing game. Awesome Level 9000 not only adds more factions for players to mix and match, but we have new bases that replace the old ones in terms of reading the dang things. And, they started adding VP Tokens to keep track of your victory points! If there's anything I can say is that this is a must get for those just starting to get into the Smash Up craze!

Smash Up: Science Fiction Double Feature Review

Another expansion for the already massively popular game, Smash Up! Much more factions are added to the collection as we take on the world of spies and clones. If you love Smash Up, this is a no brainer as it just adds a lot more factions and bases and such!

Food Fight Review

Ah yes, the very game that all my friends seem to like and yet I can't stand. A game that took me over four years to finally win a game of. Yes, Food Fight takes the mechanic of War and adds food on top of it. If it wasn't for the fact that my friends really like this game, I would've gotten rid of it by now. If only a proper expansion was added to this game.

Gold West Review

Another fantastic game by TMG, this time taking us to California in order to try to find some gold! I love the mechanics in this game ala mancala and how you have to use your resources in order to get certain tasks done around the board like Boomtown. The game is a lot of fun and it's simple to learn and I recommend this, 100% in gold coins!

The Grizzled Review

One of the more tougher co-op games I've played recently, The Grizzled shows that it's best to try to work together without having to fail at the game here and there. I love how a simple game can be so difficult to win just because you don't know what the other players will have in their hands. The game is challenging and a lot of fun!

Sheriff of Nottingham Review

One of my more popular games I have in my collection, Sheriff proves to be a very fun game with the maximum amount of players no matter what happens. You have a chance to play a character and just be silly while trying to get the most gold at the end of the game. This continues to be so popular within my group that I don't think another game will come along that can replace this one. Plus, with a possible expansion in the future, the game is fresh for being great!
