A terrible name for hopefully not-so-terrible reviews. Please feel free to add suggestions for solo games you'd like reviewed here!

Since many of Rosenberg's games are, at the very least, must-plays for solo gamers, I decided to cut my teeth on the Glass Road. That weird, mixed metaphor is the kind of top-notch writing you can expect from this reviewer.

Oh My Goods! might have something in common with this GeekList: its horrible name could serve to deter people from what would otherwise be an enjoyable experience.

A quick review of a quick game. I'm a bit warmer on this game than some, it seems.

It ticks off many of my boxes:

1Good integration of theme and mechanics
2"Big game in a small box"
3Challenging AI with clear win condition
4Beautiful art

Since I had loved La Granja: No Siesta so much, I had high hopes for the regular, big version of the game. It's thinky, it's got donkeys... but does it have SOUL?

Uh... yes? I didn't really talk about "soul" in the review so I'm not really sure what I'm doing here.

Another Rosenberg game reviewed! I don't think I like it quite as much as Arle, but it is a good one. A real, real good one.

A brief review of the expansion included in the "Deluxe Version" of Helionox. I like this game, because it is a good game, and I hope that lots of people play this game, which is a good game.

This game is tiny!

(how tiny is it?)

This game is SO tiny that lots of people talk about how it's tiny in their reviews, and hey, I do that too!

(raucous laughter ensues)

Please, please -- I'll be here all week.

My first official review for the Oniverse series...

It would NAUT be a good idea to miss out on this review, or you would curse yourself a mILLION times!

I pretty much assume that people hate me for these blurbs at this point.

Please read this review in the voice of Jerry Seinfeld's character from his "Antz" movie.

*checks internet*

So it looks like he did that movie where he was a bee, not an ant. That's fine... bees are just ants with wings, right?

Okay, well I'm not an "ant expert" and I don't "understand science" but this game is "very fun."

Did you know that "El Dorado" is Spanish for "suitable one-player game?" Did you also know that people sometimes lie on the internet, just because they can?

... please still read this review in spite of this stupid joke

If you're looking for the clever word play of jokes like "No Deck Dumbgeon," then have I got a review for you!

(I like this game, and that joke doesn't reflect my general liking-ness of the game. But... I literally use that joke in the first paragraph of the review.)

This review is 2500+ words, so let's keep the little blurb here short.

But maybe it's worth scaffolding this review with a brief explanation of how I go about NO STOP IT TOO MANY WORDS ALREADY STOP I AM SORRY

The best way to play Xia: Legends of a Drift System is while doing SICK DRIFTS with your car in a parking lot. Then, when you get a ticket, you just pay for the fees with the shiny little coins that come with the game!

You roll dice, you chose a role, you're rolling a character...

My dumb puns have nothing on the layers of subtlety just BURSTING from this game's clever two-word title.

I'm far too sophisticated to make some sort of wine pun for my 25th review. This alien, however, is not:

goo There's nothing to wine about in this game!

See... I'm very sophisticated.
