Review – Wiz-War boardgame

  Today I’m taking a look at Wiz-War, a boardgame released by Fantasy Flight Games. Wiz-War is basically a classic game remade, with the original released back in 1982. Although FFG made several changes, it’s only made the game better, while they maintained the original spirit and theme.    In Wiz-War a bunch of wizards fighting each-other,  to… Read More »

Luckily, there are few good board games designed especially for two people, so if you and you’re wife cannot think ANYTHING ELSE to do; you

Red Dead Redemption Review

Six years ago I finished Red Dead Revolver and thought that we should get more games like that. We’ve seen a few now, but now we can enjoy from the sequel Red Dead Redemption. While in this sequel, almost everything is different from the first title, it is still one hell of a game. Maybe

Modnation Racers Review

Mario Kart has held the throne for Kart racing games for a long while now and many attempts has been made to usurp Mario Kart from its throne. Few months ago, Endless Bag of Games gave a review to a decent attempt: Sonic & SEGA All-Stars racing, but the game shared some minor mishaps since
