Bearded Meeple reviews Junk Art

Our second video review of Junk Art just popped up online! This time it’s from the infamous Bearded Meeple. He reviews the components and some of the rules (there are many ways to play) and then gives his thoughts on the game. Some key sound bites that I enjoyed:

“We had a lot of fun playing it.”

“I like the obscure pieces in it and I really like the cards.”

“It’s not the same game every time you play it.”

“I like it! I hope you get a chance to check it out.”

Thanks Bearded Meeple!

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!

Gamers are liking Orphan Black: The Card Game!

orphanblackcoverReviews are continually rolling in for our new game, Orphan Black: The Card Game. This one is from a reviewer on the boardgamegeek website. He loved the game and gave it a solid 8/10. Here are a few things he mentioned:

 

This is a fun game that’s really quite unlike anything that I’ve played before

Orphan Black the Card Game is a very unique and innovative card game

The game itself is really quite unusual but fun with several mechanics used in it.

I really enjoy the deduction and hidden roles aspect of the game.

Thanks for the review Jonathan Nelson!

Cutest interview with Jay and Sen ever!

Hidden-Staircase-PodbeanWell this is just gosh darn cute. Sen and I got interviewed by Hidden Staircase Podcast – by a kid! He asks some great questions and made this interview fun and entertaining! There’s also a review of our game, But Wait There’s More by the kids too. Check it out in full here! Interview starts at 7:20 – but they weave But Wait There’s More throughout the entire podcast. So cute!
