Review: The Nazi Occult by Kenneth Hite

Review: The Nazi Occult by Kenneth Hite

Osprey Books has a long and distinguished history as a publisher of historical reference books. I am a huge fan of their product lines and many an adventure sprang from their non-fiction titles. Happily, Osprey is branching out into the gaming arena explicitly with their “Osprey Adventure” line of books.  It is a new line […]

Review: A Memory of Light, Final Book of the Wheel of Time (Spoiler Free…Mostly)

Please indulge me for a moment before this review begins….Woohoo! I did it! I finished “The Wheel of Time” series! I slogged through 14 books, endless sub-plots, 500 page books that advanced the plot by four days, Nynaeve’s hair pulling, Egwene’s whining and a growing belief that Robert Jordan got paid by the word. It […]

Review: Force on Force from Ambush Alley Games and Osprey Publishing

Review: Force on Force from Ambush Alley Games and Osprey Publishing

From the outset, let me make clear that I am not a “miniature” guy. Sure, I throw down miniatures for RPG games and “Wing of War,” but I am not someone that sits around painting Napoleanic infantry to the historically-accurate color scheme. More, I am not one to enjoy deeply complex miniature combat games that […]

HEX HEX XL

Game Review: HEX HEX XL by Smirk and Dagger Games

Normally, we reserve the game reviews on LivingDice for brand new games. However, there is a new “re-launch” that I think everyone should know about. Smirk & Dagger Games (you most likely know them from Cutthroat Caverns fame) has relaunched their HEX HEX card game. HEX HEX was originally released in 2003.  A couple years […]

Review - Pathfinder Rolepaying Game: Advanced Player's Guide

Review – Pathfinder Rolepaying Game: Advanced Player’s Guide

One of the hot new releases at Gen Con this year, was the Pathfinder Rolepaying Game: Advanced Player’s Guide by Paizo Publishing. As media, we get into the vendor area an hour early on Thursday, before the doors open to regular guests. And when those doors opened, I was standing next to Paizo’s booth. All […]

Review: Duck! Duck! Go! Board Game from APE Games

Review: Duck! Duck! Go! Board Game from APE Games

“Duck! Duck! Go!” from APE Games first appeared on my radar at the GAMA Trade Show in 2009, but I did not get a chance to play it. This year, with the release of the sequel “Duck! Duck! Safari!” I contacted APE for review copies of both games and they kindly obliged. Though I have […]

Review: Thunderstone from Alderac Entertainment Group

Review: Thunderstone from Alderac Entertainment Group

“Thunderstone” from AEG is a deck-building game built around a dungeon-crawling theme. For those not familiar with the deck-building genre, here is a brief explanation. Rather than starting with a stack of cards to play with (ie Magic: The Gathering), players start with a very small deck of cards. These cards each have a value […]
