Thanks Bearded Meeple!!!

Opinionated Gamers review Akrotiri…twice!

akro-OGIt’s a privilege to be reviewed by the oh-so-opinionated reviewers known as Opinionated Gamers! Due to an oversight we actually got two reviews by them – and both reviewers liked the game – huzzah! You can read the whole thing here and the second review here, but here are a few quotes from both reviews that I liked:

“The map building is fun, and there is a lot of thought that needs to be given when placing tiles”

“it does give different viable scoring options”

“Overall, Akrotiri is an enjoyable and challenging 2P game”

“it’s a nice meaty game that I’ve enjoyed playing”

“I find Akrotiri to be a nice relatively meaty two player game”

“I played it once and was favorably impressed”

“It packs a lot of game in a small box”

Thanks for the reviews guys!

Great Akrotiri play through by Jon Gets Games!

I really like the format of this play through. He edits it down and removes all the unnecessary parts and shows just the actual meaningful bits! Also, Jon Gets Games narrates why he’s doing things as he’s doing them so that you get a full understanding of the rules as he’s playing. I love it and want to see more videos like this – great idea!!

Belfort: The Expansion Expansion Review

Bex-coverThis review was posted awhile ago – but he has tweaked it so much and added so many more photos that I thought I’d share it again. His enthusiasm for the expansion is fantastic! I’m really proud of that expansion because it really feels like we added something new to the game – without bogging it down or making it more complicated. Great review Mark!

Tortuga gets a fantastic review!

Tortuga-BoxNice to see our game from Queen Games getting some love still! A new review popped up on Boardgamegeek.com from Tom – one of its users. Check it out here!

Some nice comments from the review:

“Tortuga is a fun pirate-themed game”

“Tortuga is a smart game with little to no down time between your turns”

“There are a lot of quick decisions to make and they mostly depend on what your opponents are doing.”

Thanks for the review Tom!

Rahdo plays through and loves Akrotiri!

Rahdo has established himself as an important voice in the board gaming community. I think it’s because of his passion that comes through in his videos. It’s obvious that he loves board games! Also he produces a lot of content! If you’re thinking about picking up a game, definitely check to see if Rahdo has played it!

His most recent video is about Akrotiri! He does a 30 minute set up and play through of the first couple of rounds. He makes a couple of goofs, but you’ll see annotations popup that will correct them.

Then there’s a video for the rest of the gameplay so you can see the whole game unfold.

Finally, Rahdo gives his final thoughts. Some of my favourite quotes from Rahdo are:

“Jen and I enjoy that a lot”

“This game really works well”

“There’s a surprising amount to think about”

“It’s fun, it’s fast, it’s exciting!”

“The mosaic of this board as it expands is just a delight”

Thanks for the videos Rahdo!!!

Indie Cardboard reviews Belfort and the expansion!

belfort_topOur friends over at indie cardboard have reviewed our game, Belfort along with the Expansion Expansion. They love it and their review is fantastic – not just because they love it (though that is pretty awesome!) but because the review is pretty much ALL review and not a rules dump! I wish more board game reviews were like this. Check it out here.

Great Video Review of our Micro Game: This Town Ain’t Big Enough for the 2-4 of Us!

Here’s a great video review of our micro game that came out last year (first from a successful Kickstarter campaign and now it’s available to purchase online – for only $5 – click here to check that out).

The review covers the rules and then his opinion (spoiler alert – he likes it!):

“Much easier to teach than Carcassone and yet there are good decisions there.”

“I like it very much as a 2 player game!”

“It’s very portable – perfect filler.”

Thanks Marco!
