Description WINNER -- 2006 Origins Award for "Historical Miniatures Game of the Year" Using 25mm miniatures and some dice, Gutshot is a fast-paced, easy-to-learn game that has you slappin’ leather and blowin’ away the bad guys in a matter of minutes. The series of events presented in these books unfold in a rolling format, allowing readers to immerse themselves more directly into the action than ever before.
Comments
Game itself a bit boring, but if you like the theme, this game is playable. Was the building block though for development into "La Grande Armee" which remains a minor classic. Deal made with Blackcloud6 I was annoyed by the generic Allied counters, which made no distinction between Prussian, Russian, and Austrian.
It was the strategic and grand strategic dimensions that drew me into this game. If I run into the street and shoot at you, you can shoot back. (May 2006) Played pre-BGG. The counters are almost as bad; all of the Allied armies are the same golden brown, while the French are a pale blue.
Own combined Luftschiff and ZRCV reprint.

Description A Mexican trivia game based on Catholic religion. Rock to the top! It's a race to stardom at the biggest rock concert of the year! These Dino Dominoes also help kids pronounce the dinosaur names. "Would it ever end?" The game does not only rely on sound tactics, it also promotes interaction between the players, who can strike a deal at any time.

I wanted something for the kids to grow up and played.
Have yet to play. Great theme and innovative card play. Yet to play.

Description The player rolls the dice to determine how many spaces to move. Object: To go through the obstacles and finish school - "Destination Graduation." There are two different levels of play, one for young children and a more advanced game for those who want more depth. And... In playing the game, you may arrive at a situation which is not in strict. Designed by an M.D., tested by gamers, and illustrated by the amazing Len Peralta!
Comments
A fun, fast, simple game. I want to play it a few more times to get a better feel for it, but the fact I want to keep playing it is a good sign. Place tiles and pieces according to the rules; try to get rid of 2 of the 3 types of pieces before anyone else. LOVE the molded dungeon tray. Middle of the road.

Note : After having inserted this game in the BGG database, I realized there's another game named Constellation, from Hans van Halteren and published in 2003. It's Monopoly.

Description Dreling Ding! Wax is the retheming and reworking of one of Small Box Games' earlier games, Rank. A range can be selected (with some restrictions) - narrow ranges will yield more game points (hearts) than higher ones, if successful. There are also fate and foxfire spaces that force the player to draw a random event card when landed on.
Comments
I have not played in a long time. I like the Carambouille cards because they are bringing the bluffing and the backstabbing needed in this game. Luckily this was redeemed with the Count, King and Cult expansion.
Owned by equivalence. In our one play, the extreme bids seem too good (especially since they're worth the most) but more play might change that.

Description After the death of Yonaguska, the Cherokee tribe meets to select a new leader. The game is roll-and-move, with players taking turns at dollar bill shaped spinner. Due to their old age, however, they are also vulnerable to the youngsters, who want to take their place and will not hesitate to challenge their opponents. The game consists of a small rubber squeaky car and 112 cards each with an animal in a particular color on it. Players simultaneously try to match either the animal OR the color to those they have already avoided.
Comments
If I ever wanted to be like anyone it was Rik and Ade. I thought perhaps someone had stored other game bits in there too, but it turns out the board is just beastly heavy.
More a collectable item than a game. Quick little "game" that the wife and I enjoy playing with our 5 and 7 yr old.

Description "This world's not big enough for all of us, so it's time you step aside to make room for me."
Comments
This is a much more vicious and potentially chaotic game - makes for a rip roaring time but if you thought Vinci was better than the original, you'll hate this one worse!
CSI. I do not think that this will replace the original, but as an advanced game, it performs admirably. In every other way, UG is much improved on the original game! It doesn't make it worse, just longer than the original game and expansions. Most things are fine, but you'll need the ability to edit on-the-fly. Secondly, the lost tribes have been replaced with "monsters" which when defeated open up either a special place or a relic, all granting additional powers. However, I enjoyed it. Plus, they are too random, and just not that funny either. A number of the powers are redundant, regurgitated from the base game. The river works well, and the maps are tighter, which is probably a good thing.
