Jaipur Review

Jaipur was a game that entered my radar very early on in my board gaming journey. However, time-and-time again I’d pass on it. In a classic case of judging a book by its cover, it was a game that didn’t appeal to me due to it being a game about merchants selling goods, which is a theme that failed to pique my interest.

The Fantastic 4 Return to Marvel Legendary

Good news Marvel Legendary fans!

ICV2 reports that the Fantastic 4 expansion is coming back in print and will be available for purchase within 6-8 weeks. The expansion has been out of print for years due to “licensor-controlled issues” according to Upper Deck, but whatever was blocking the way has stepped aside for now.

I’m not a fan of the Fantastic 4 in the comics or movies, but it is a good expansion for Marvel Legendary. In particular, you’re going to want it in your collection to fight against Galactus. Look out for this one in stores this summer!

The Game Review

Let’s get the obvious out of the way. The Game is a horrible title for this game, or any game for that matter. Beyond the obvious vague of its title, it’s a pain to search for online. As terrible as its title may be, the game was nominated for the 2015 Speil Des Jahres, one of the highest honours in tabletop gaming. There has to be something to this beyond its terrible name, right?
