A review: Kingsburg

A review: Kingsburg

Kingsburg By Scott Brownlee “Your majesty, I feel the coming of winter signals most poorly for my territory. This year’s crop was small, and we have been most devoted to maintaining your standing armies to prevent the resurgence of the goblin invaders.” Build your territory and rise in status in Kingsburg, a game of management and risk for two to five players. Players each construct their provinces as they see fit. Will a new Guard…

Scythe: A first play review

Scythe: A first play review

I had a chance to play Scythe this weekend with some friends.  It is probably one of the most sought after games right now and after a single play through I see why.
