Delve – into Carcassonne

OK things have gotten a little too dark with Cthulhu so part 3 will be after a quick break.

As I was sat in my local board gaming shop, one of my friends was playing this game…

Colt Express – Get off ya’ horse…

… and drink ya’ milk.


OK, can’t believe I started with that joke… actually I can.

Seriously, I’ve never had much fun with a game outside an RPG… mainly because of one thing… we stepped out beyond the rules of the game and into what the game was meant to be…

Dark Souls – The House Rules!!!

So part 1 I talked about the rulebook that I believed was not up to scratch


For part 2 I’m looking at something else, when a player intentionally removes a rule or reads a rule wrongly (both can happen and I have experience on both).  However I do not see misreading a rule as a bad thing… especially if it means that something comes out of it.

Pathfinder Adventures… Cards on Computer

Fury of Dracula – The Nightmare of Not Knowing

The Fury of Dracula is a game of Cat and Mouse along the line of Letters of Whitechapel and Nuns on the Run,…

… and one that freaked me out…


Worst still I played it against my mother (1 on 1)… bad move on part because she was an expert of hide and seek; however it was an experience of playing with a hidden element.

And feeling you are solving nothing…

Super Dungeon Explore / Super Dungeon Tactics

Sometimes, you miss a game on Steam because the steam library is so dense… this is one of them.


In 2011, there was a board game called Super Dungeon Explore based on retro 8/16-bit Japanese RPGs; where one player plays the fantasy enemies and the others play the heroes trying to defeat the enemy.

Five years on, Soda Pop Miniatures worked with Underbite Games to creates Super Dungeon Tactics; a strategy game based on the original game… yet there is something different from the original game.
