Fellow Gamer Friends,

I wanted to put together a geek list collection of all the reviews I have done so far with the youtube channel - all in one place. So hopefully this portal of reviews is of interest. I have really enjoyed each of these titles below and hope these games add a little fun and education to your life.

If you would like to check out the youtube channel, you can find that below. Game On!

This is a pre-kickstarter preview with print and play components. Game is a very cool dungeon crawler with some nice skill tree mechanics. Really like where this is headed and can't wait to see what the production copy of this looks like.

Good Harry Potter game and I really like the story driven aspect of it. you basically "release" sections of the story as you play through and you really don't know what is inside each packet. Very fun and have had a ton of success with groups on this one.

This was a pretty fun little card game sent to me and did not make its funding for kickstarter but I think we will see this again in the future. Its actually a really great kids card game and fun for adults as well.

Fun story driven mystery game. Love solving the mystery and seeing if you solved it in the most efficient way. That's a great mechanic to this game is the efficiency score.

Got the new reprint of this title - classic and still just as good if not better. Osprey Games implementation of the reprint was done to perfection.

Love Zombicide - and black plague is, I think, my favorite of the skins out. Really enjoy the fantasy theme and look forward to the green horde coming to kickstarter soon. Amazing co-op game here!

This is a fun classic spin on a simple path game. I really like the detail on the components, artwork and the game play is pretty cut-throat in the end. Its always been a solid end game experience for me.

Did a preview on this one for their kickstarter and I really like this simple little dice game. Play this all the time with work friends and everyone really loves it. This is definitely a buy if you want a quick dice game with "destroy your buddies chance of winning" fun .

This game is cool but a little dark for my tastes. It does however have a very good DM mechanic that I was not sure about at first but plays out very well and is very balanced. At times you think you have it as the heroes but then the evil forces just come out of nowhere. Don't want to give the wrong impression on this one - great game and design but the theme is a little dark and I would not recommend playing with kids.

This game is really good with groups and parties. Reason is you really have to negotiate as you play and it always ends in fun as you play various roles in the game.
