Game Reviews by BoardGameGeek Reviewer EndersGame

Want to know what components you get with a game? What to know what a game looks like? What to know how it works? Want to learn the basic rules and flow of play?

In these reviews, I take a pictorial approach, by taking photographs of key components and gameplay, and organizing them with accompanying text in order to teach you how to play a game. In addition to showcasing what a game looks like and what it is all about, I also provide my analysis of the game. These reviews can help readers make an informed decision before purchasing a game, or could help fellow-gamers get a basic sense of how to play a game before a session.

This list is arranged alphabetically. To see my most recent reviews, click here.

In addition to reviews of games, I also write detailed pictorial reviews of playing cards, which I post on a separate list here.

If you are a game designer or publisher and would like me to consider your game for review, feel free to send me an expression of interest by GeekMail, or via email. Generally speaking I am only willing to commit the time to writing a review for games that I am personally enthusiastic about and consider to be worthwhile recommending to other gamers, so please contact me directly to help determine whether your game would be a suitable candidate for one of my reviews.

mb Subscribe to this list if you wish to be notified whenever I post a new review.

The E•G•G Series is an excellent series of delightful small box games from Eagle-Gryphon Games. These games features a diversity of mechanics and styles, and many are designed to be fillers that will appeal to a wide range of people. Here are direct links to all the different reviews I've written about each game in the series:

Review: 1. Eggs & Empires
Review: 2. 12 Days of Christmas (don't own)
Review: 3. King's Kilt
Review: 4. Krakatoa
Review: 5. Dexikon
Review: 6. SiXeS
Review: 7. Seven7s
Review: 8. Fleet Wharfside
Review: 9. Sluff Off
Review: 10. Harald
Review: 11a. Elevenses For One
Review: 11b. Bowling Solitaire

For my overview on all the games in the series, and my thoughts on their relative merits, see this GeekList:
