Hanabi Card Game Review & Ultimate Guide (2019)

• 7/6/2019

<p>There’s something magical about fireworks.</p><p>I still have a lot of childhood memories of going out with my family and cracking open the sunroof to watch the Independence Day fireworks. Years later as an adult, I still have that first memory whenever I watch fireworks.</p><p>The first time I heard about Hanabi I was a little shocked. First off, it won the Spiel des Jahres (Game of the Year) award in 2013. That’s not surprising in and of itself, but what is surprising is the size of the game.</p><p>The box is ridiculously small. It’s possible it’s slightly more square than a box of Love Letter but thinner.</p><p>It’s always a nice reminder that you don’t need a massive box, jam-packed full of minis and huge map tiles in order to make a compelling (and award-winning) game.

Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards Review & Card Game Guide (2019)

• 7/6/2019

<p>AHHHHH!</p><p>STEP INTO THE WIZARD DUEL, WHERE THE MOST POWERFUL WIZARDS ARE LOCKED INTO NEVERENDING COMBAT TO DETERMINE WHO IS THE BEST!</p><p>FIGHT! DIE! REBORN! FIGHT! DIE! REBORN!</p><p>…that’s enough of the caps lock for now.</p><p>Some nights you might not feel like pulling out a massive game that requires hours of setup and another century to play. This is the game you grab on one of those occasions. Epic Spell Wars falls into the category of a “beer and pretzels” game, a super light and quick card game where you can leave all seriousness at the door. Other beer and pretzels titles include Hanabi, King of Tokyo, and Boss Monster — although we won’t stop you from enjoying beer and pretzels anytime. They pretty much go hand-in-hand with a board game night.</p><p>Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards. Even the name is crazy fun and truly gives you an inclination of what you’re in for.</p><p>In the game, you play as powerful, depraved (and homicidal) wizards who are trying to kill everyone, even if you get killed in the process. What did the other wizards ever do to you? It doesn’t matter. Kill and die (in the most epic fashion possible) by creating the most deadly spell combinations. ‘Cause that’s what you’re here for.

Blokus Review & Board Game Guide (2019)

• 6/23/2019

<p>Blokus is officially pronounced “block us”, which is stupid because “bloke us” sounds way better.</p><p>Blokus is an abstract strategy game, which means the theme is not important to the experience of playing. Abstract strategy games tend to be games in which the players pose a series of puzzles to each other. These types of games are also (usually) played with only two players.</p><p><a href="https://gamecows.com/blokus-review/">https://gamecows.com/blokus-review/</a></p>
