Some of the staff have written mini-reviews of various products in the store so I thought I would share a few of them here:
The Forgotten Planet – review by Chris
The Forgotten Planet is a board game for 2-4 players. It is a tile-laying area control game where players compete to control the surface of another planet using pieces representing robots under their command. Players can also use their robots to construct mines, allowing them to construct more robots and bases to extend their control of the planet’s surface. Tiles under your command can collect solar energy to power your robots, but robots that become isolated outside your territory fall inactive for the round.
Call of Cthulhu – Cthulhu by Gaslight – review by Greg Latour
New revised Campaign environment for Victorian Setting. All new stats for 6th ed. Call of Cthulhu. Victorian play environment has a much more gothic feel. Easily the best of 3 environments as it suits the game best. New artwork and maps. Large foldout map of 1890 London.
Citadel Turfs – review by Cam
Easy and quick way to finish bases when applied with superglue. Works best in small clumps along with other sand/rocks and foliage. Only drawback is that the glue used to hold the clumps together is not clear and has to be hidden or coloured to match.
The Day after Ragnarok – review by Drew
Have you ever wondered what the 1950s would have been like if the Nazis assassinated Patton and then called down Gotterdammerung? Ken Hite has. Apparently what you get is a noir steampunk Cold War between a psychic-fueled Soviet Union and the World-Serpent-ruined British Empire. Strap on your venom-fired jetpack and strike out for Darkest Africa!
Besieged by Rowena Cory Daniells – review by Brandon
Very long and gruelling first quarter to a third of the book, trying too hard to build back story. Once you get past that section the book starts to open up and the back story starts to pay off. You get very invested in the female lead character (Imoshen). Not a bad read overall, political intrigue and small battles, though character development takes a while. 3.5 out of 5.
