Small World of Warcraft Review

Met schaamrood op de wangen moet ik bekennen dat ik het moederspel nog nooit speelde. Nochtans een monsterhit én vooral: bedacht door een belg, Phillippe Keyaerts. Na een jarenlange stroom aan uitbreidingen, komt een samenwerking tussen Blizzard Entertainment en Days of Wonder met een op zichzelf staande versie. Je komt terecht in de fantasiewereld van World of Warcraft, een razend populaire video...[Read More]

Smallworld NL

In Small World, players vie for conquest and control of a world that is simply too small to accommodate them all. Designed by Philippe Keyaerts as a fantasy follow-up to his award-winning Vinci, Small World is inhabited by a zany cast of characters such as dwarves, wizards, amazons, giants, orcs, and even humans, who use their troops to occupy territory and conquer adjacent lands in order to pu...[Read More]

Scythe Review

Scythe is een spel uit de stal van Stonemaier Games. Elke gamer heeft er ofwel al eens van gehoord of bezit het.

It is a time of unrest in 1920s Europa. The ashes from the first great war still darken the snow.

Scythe is an engine-building game set in an alternate-history 1920s period. It is a time of farming and war, broken he...[Read More]

JAWS Review

Je leest een ingezonden user review die niet door Boxing Meeples geschreven werd. Jaws is een bordspel dat vertrekt vanuit een franchise van een topfilm, dit op zich is al een serieus risico. Vaak heb ik toch mijn bedenkingen bij dit soort spellen en stel ik me eerder terughoudend op. Na het spelen van Horrified (ook Ravensburger) was ik geïnteresseerd geraakt in dit spel dat ook in dezelfde perio...[Read More]

Risk Legacy

Risk Legacy represents what is if not a new, at least a rare concept to boardgaming: campaigning. At its core, the game, particularly at first, plays much like regular Risk with a few changes. Players control countries or regions on a map of the world, and through simple combat (with players rolling dice to determine who loses units in each battle) they try to eliminate all opponents from the game...[Read More]
