A webcomic about board games and other geeky things.
Hive is one of those games I would like to gift to anybody! Except to people who really hate bugs of course… although I think that the bugs on the Hive playing pieces are rather aesthetically pleasing. It’s a simple two player game that can be played in five minutes and it only requires a… Continue reading Wouldn’t hurt a fly
Yes, this week’s comic has quite some geek layers going on (hello Game of Thrones!). But most importantly is of course BattleCON! It took Heinze quite some effort to make me try this game about a year ago, I didn’t really believe in the concept of a fighting game as a board game and I… Continue reading Trial By Combat
Disclaimer: We played the Dutch version of Ghost Stories, so it might be that the translation of the rule book is just… not that good. Ghost Stories! After going through the hassle of understanding the game completely and having the feeling we were really doing it right (thank you Google!), we had quite some fun with the… Continue reading Ignorance is Bliss
We’ve been playing Tigris & Euphrates a few times now and I think this is the first game we encountered in which your lowest score counts. It’s an interesting game mechanic for sure. It often happened that I had more than 20 points in military, but only 5 points in agriculture for example. It was… Continue reading Board Game Logic
So last week White Wizard Games (very successfully!) completed the Kickstarter campaign for their new game called ‘Epic’. Due to popularity, Star Realms was unavailable for about a year here after its release and we don’t want to wait that long again with Epic. That combined with us simply loving Star Realms, we just had… Continue reading Outsourcing

And it has a cool theme, you get to play… Continue reading King of … the table!
It’s been eleven weeks since my last comic about Netrunner, so I thought it was about time to post this one. 😉 People that don’t know or play Netrunner really won’t get the joke, so I’ll try to explain it a little. The comic is based on the card Scorched Earth. Source: NetrunnerDB.com In Netrunner,… Continue reading Tag!
Watch It Played has launched their crowdfunding campaign for season 5! We’re both big fans of Rodney Smith’s channel and we often choose to watch his videos instead of plowing through thick and sometimes complicated rule books to get an idea of the game play. If you’ve never heard of Watch It Played and you’re… Continue reading What is he on aboot?
K2 is one of those games that’s always fun to play. Although when it’s 30 degrees outside, it’s a little harder to fully immerse in the theme of the game. 😉 At first we thought it was more of a racing game to the top of the mountains. But it ISN’T! Yes, you score more… Continue reading Sundresses in the snow
Ticket To Ride is one of those games that regularly ends up on our table, it’s just an excellent game. Whenever we want to introduce somebody to the world of board gaming, Ticket To Ride is certainly one of the games we’d recommend. We own the original Ticket To Ride (America) with the big cities… Continue reading Players of Ticket To Ride
