Captain Sonar – Written Review

I have been on a party game thing of recently. I even made a video a short while ago exploring my favourite party games to date and promising that after I have done all my reviews I would relook at them and do another top 10… assuming doing so would have interesting changes to differentiate it from the original.

Majesty for the Realm card game written review

Majesty for the Realm is a card game in which you build up a medieval realm, it’s designed by the guy who made Splendor (a rather popular game). Like Splendor, Majesty for the Realm is a simple, but beautiful game. Setup / Gameplay: Each player has a kingdom / village made up of 8 cards placed in front of them (the same for each player). This is neat as it actually makes a panorama of your village. Smaller cards make up denizens...
