Video Preview of upcoming Godfather: A New Don

Well, it’s a bit of a teaser header – but we do have a video of Nate Murray from IDW sharing all the cool info about our new game with The Dice Tower. This just popped into my radar now but has been available for a couple of months. Nate talks about the mechanics and how excited he is about the game that Sen and I made – yay! Fast forward to 5:57 for the magic!

Akrotiri in top 5 Pick up and Deliver Games!

The Dice Tower often creates top 10 videos based on various mechanics, and the recent one was for Pick Up and Deliver. This video also welcomed another board game podcast icon to the show – Rahdo! It was Rahdo that placed Akrotiri as his #4 favourite Pick up and Deliver game of all time. That’s high praise coming from someone who’s played and reviewed so many games! It’s surprising that Tom hasn’t played it yet though – considering he’s loved all of our previous games! Maybe we’ll have to send him one!

Dice Tower loves Junk Art!

The first video review of our upcoming game, Junk Art, by Pretzel Games, has landed online – and is by none other than Tom Vasel from the Dice Tower. Tom got to play the game for the first time while he was at The Gathering a couple weeks ago, but then was able to snag his own copy. The bottom line? Tom loves it and gives it his Seal of Approval!

I really enjoyed hearing him say, “The designers of the game, Jay Cormier and Sen-Foong Lim have done some excellent games, so I was willing to give it a chance.” Cool that we’ve made enough good games that reviewers are now knowing who we are! 🙂

Other standout comments from Tom:

“Guys, this game really has blown me away!”

“I was really surprised that they took this concept…and make it into an excellent, fun game.”

“The fact that every game has a different feel, is really neat.”

“If you do like skill based dexterity games this is honestly one of the best to come out in years.”

“Highly recommend it. HIGHLY recommend it!”

Wow – awesome stuff! Thanks Tom for the wonderful words!

Another Great Review of Orphan Black: The Card Game

Joel Eddy from Drive Thru Reviews has posted a video review of our new game, Orphan Black: The Card Game – and he loved it! This game has had a very slow launch, but with Tom Vasel giving it the Dice Tower Approved stamp and now Drive Thru giving it a positive review – here’s hoping the game gets onto more gamers’ tables!

A few of the things that stood out for me in the review:

“We have had a ball with this game!”

“It’s got an interesting way of approaching social deduction. It feels like a Werewolf or Resistance style of game but with a little bit more to it.”

“If you like the show, I think you’ll really get a kick out of this. I would get this if you’re a big fan of the show.”

“I would recommend this across the board, regardless if you’ve seen the show.”

orphanblackcoverWell this is certainly some good news! Tom Vasel from the Dice Tower has just posted his overview of the rules as well as his thoughts on our new game, Orphan Black: The Card Game…and (spoiler)…he liked it!!! It’s Dice Tower approved!

Some things I liked specifically were:

“The game offers a unique experience that you won’t find in any other game.”

“I’m sure if you enjoy Orphan Black you’re going to enjoy it, but even if you don’t it’s an entertaining game.”

Thanks Tom for the kind words!

Dice Tower recommends But Wait There’s More…again!

butwaitboxThe Dice Tower has showered some love on our quirky party game, But Wait There’s More before, and now they’re at it again! In their latest podcast, Eric Summerer takes his turn in praising our game. Some key highlights I enjoyed:

“The cards [in But Wait There’s More] give you a much better starting off point than say, Snake Oil.”

“You aren’t hampered by Thinker’s Block in the heat of the moment.”

“This worked better with my family than Snake Oil”

“It’s one that I will be bringing out a lot more often.”

You can listen to the entire podcast here, or jump to 15:45 to hear his comments about But Wait There’s More! Thanks Eric!

Tom Vasel continues to praise But Wait There’s More!

butwaitboxTom already reviewed But Wait There’s More in a video, but he continues to talk about it in his podcast. Listen to the Dice Tower Podcast and at around the 11 minute mark you can hear Tom explain the game and why he thinks it’s a blast. He claims that it’s one of his top party games for 2014 and that it’s better than Snake Oil and The Big Idea! That’s some mighty praise – thanks Tom!

You should be able to pick up a copy for yourself from your local game store. If not – tell them to order some in!!
