Star Trek: Ascendancy (MACE West 2019)

This is a very fun game but I did not enjoy playing the Klingons.  They are a hard race to play because you are forced to attack and the consequences of attack can be harsh. I played the Klingons and

Star Trek Ascendancy, Pre-Con Playtest & MACE West 2018

I have said it before. This is a great game!  I played with 4 players as a playtest as a local game store and then 5 players are MACE West 2018.  Both with expansion races (Cardassians and Ferengi) and the

Star Trek: Ascendancy (MACE 2017)

This is the first time I played this game with the new expansions.  Both were played with a 4 player game, leaving the Romulans out. I think most of the players played conservatively at the beginning.  That tends to make

Scythe, mini-mace 2017

This game has me torn.  I don’t necessarily like Euro-games.  Worker placement is not bad but the general race to the most points bothers me.  I need more player interaction and this one has some.  No dice rolling though.  Just

Tide of Iron – Very Cool Game

It is a game I have been anticipating since its announced release. I had played games similar to it – Memoir ’44, Axis & Alliles minis – and enjoyed them to some degree. I know I could not afford it

Twilight Imperium 3rd Edition Report (Jan 20)

Well, it is over. I built it up in my own mind so much, I am not sure if could have lived up to my expectations even if it went perfectly. And it went far from perfect, at least in
