Check out this great review of our new party game, But Wait There’s More, by one of our favourite reviewers, Undead Viking! He highly recommended the game and if you’d like to pick up a copy you can effectively pre-order one by backing it on Kickstarter here!!
Reviews seem to be popping up all the time for one of our games so we thought we’d share wheat people are saying about all the Bamboozle Brother games recently. Check out these great comments! Really makes me happy to see so many people enjoying the game we’re making! Thanks for the kind words everyone!
This Town Ain’t Big Enough for the 2-4 of Us
Recommendation: Yes! Games won’t take longer than 15 minutes, max, if that. For what it is, it is an excellent little game. If you were panning for gold, this game would be a real gem. – Kevin Garnica
A really fun tile laying microgame. Plays fast and has interesting moments. I really liked how you score points based on how many symbols your OPPONENTS have in the same town. Very creative. Worth checking out. – Andrew Bellavie
This is an EXTREMELY good/fun game for the price. Impressed with the “bones” of this one.- Xenothon Stelnicki
Great lunch time game and filler. Simple rules and plays well at all player numbers. Can add multiples of the game to make the game longer. – Pat Gagnon
But Wait There’s More
Once you’ve had a taste of “But Wait, There’s More!” you’ll never want to go back to the relatively lacklustre fun of games like Apples to Apples and Snake Oil again. The genius of this game lies in the fun of the pitch – you have a little bit to go on from your hand of attributes & some randomness when you draw from the deck, and it’s all 100% hilarious and fun. Best of all, everyone gets a pitch for the item each round and then everyone votes on what they thought was the best pitch – a nice touch to make sure everyone’s participating and having fun. Highly recommended! – Nicole Hoye
One of the very few party games I enjoy – at all. And it’s freaking hilarious. – Sean Ross
Can’t wait! I love this game!!! I laugh until I cry every single time I play…- Tim Sowers
Played this Saturday night at Gen Con with a full table of 10. One of the best gaming experiences we had all weekend. We fit in two complete games in under an hour (and that included the time it took to learn the rules) and everyone had a great time. This was an easy buy and I’d have bought the game on the spot were it ready. – gescott01
Tried this at GenCon 2014 and really enjoyed it. – Arthur Rutyna
This one was a very fun time for us. Sure, there’s not a lot of strategy going on here but, the mechanics make for an enjoyable game. I like how the treasures move from the island to Tortuga throughout the game depending on how many crew members or boats you have available to you. We were a little confused at first but, really got into the swing of things and enjoyed ourselves. The best part to me were that the scores were super close, with the winner only winning by one point and the loser only losing by three. As I said, this is a very fun game! – Joseph Peterson
Had low expectations due to its fantasy setting, but it is surprising fun game to play. Another one where I feel every game I have played was time well spent. It has become a staple in my top 10. Expansion(s) have only enhanced it. – Bob Nash
Belfort is a very good worker placement game. I like how the points are score in this game. The guilds available being different each game adds a lot of replay value. The production of this game is one of the best that I have seen. The rules, the boards, the player aid, the cards and ressources (each with a different shape) are all great. – Dominic Morier
The theme and mechanics combine for a really good game. – James Hatfield
What a wonderful worker placement. It has lot going on, but it all seems to blend together seamlessly. The card drafting and area control are not to be overlooked. Overall, one of the best WP games I have ever played. – Brian Thomson
Belfort: The Expansion Expansion
This is my all time favorite so its a Always Wanna Play List for me – Adrian C
Great expansion for Belfort. When I buy this, I don’t see myself playing without the expansion anymore. – Miguel García
Train of Thought
This is such a great idea, having players guess a word but by only being able to speak 3 words and with having to incorporate the previous answer to explain the next. We loved this and for any fans of party word games, this is a winner. – Joseph Peterson
Another positive review for Tortuga has popped up online from our friends at Board Dom I Nation. They focus on reviewing games that are good for families – and thought that Tortuga really fit the bill! Here are some of my favourite excerpts from the review:
“This is a great game to play with your family or even regular gamers.”
“My family had a very fun time with this game and hope to get in many more plays.”
This is nice to read! One of the winners of the Tortuga contest that Queen ran during the Kickstarter campaign decided to write up a quick review about Tortuga. He really liked the game and had some nice things to say about it:
“There is a lot to like here.”
“Heavy, sturdy, colourful and easy to navigate components.”
“I found some nice strategy in the treasure chest movement.”
“The game’s length is perfect for what it is and it is a really fun, quick game.”
Thanks to Jacob Lee for the nice review! You can read his entire review here.
The Piemaster, as he’s known on boardgamegeek.com, has provided his thoughts to the world about our new game Tortuga! Overall he was pleased with the game! Here’s my favourite quote:
I was pleasantly surprised with how well Tortuga played. We all were in fact, and one of our play group decided to buy it the following day. It is fairly cheap, quick and easy to play, entertaining throughout and deceptively strategic.
Yay! Thanks Piemaster for reviewing the game! Here’s hoping we get enough interest in the game so we can release some expansions to increase the depth even more for those that want it!!
We have our first review of Tortuga – and it’s a good one…I think! I say I think because the review is in Dutch and Google Translate makes it hard – and funny – to read! Here’s the final conclusion from Dominique and the website, which I believe is called Table Sticks:
if you want a thematic properly converted family game with pirates in the lead, are fond of dice luck and accident, your console like graced with beautiful and solid material, loves interacting with the continuous scanning of the signs of your opponent is paramount , enjoy choice stress kicks in an exciting and uncertain final scoring and not mind a quest for an extra pull bag you should not hesitate to strike.
I’ll just focus in on the last part “You should not hesitate to strike” and assume that the reviewer loved it! :-) You can read the whole review here.
GeekDad wrote up a nice review of This Town Ain’t Big Enough for the 2-4 of Us! In short, he liked it and while it won’t replace Carcassonne as his main tile-laying game, but that “it’ll be great for a quick fix.” Check out his review…
Oh also – you knew that the game is still funding on Kickstarter right?! Hey with a minimum pledge of $3 you can get yourself a copy of the game…or what about free? Sure – you can even try the game for free as a print and play. Click on Free Games above to find it.
These two are just awesome! I love their reviews. They have high production quality, they’re both good on camera (and adorable!) – but mostly I love them because they actually REVIEW the game! I’m not sure how we all became so complacent in interchanging the word review with rules summary. 99% of all other ‘reviews’ that I see are mostly a lengthy rules summary with an opinion tacked on at the end.
Anyway – I’m ranting. Here’s their video review of our new expansion – which they both seemed to really enjoy!
Let’s Level Up has done the first video review of Belfort: The Expansion Expansion! He goes through all the assistants,expansions and new guilds with close ups of each. In short – he really liked the expansion! Yay! Check it out:
And here’s Let’s Level Up’s review of the base game of Belfort – which he also liked!
