Comments
Usual.
Preordered this... Even first-time players can very easily play two games in rapid succession.
My wife likes this card, but I'm not a huge fan of it yet. I do not know whether it is fun or not. Get hold of it if you can... There are tech cards which allow you to manipulate the dice, which improves the management of chaos.
Based on a single 2p game.

Description The five issues of "Diceman" were magazine games published using characters from the British anthology comic "2000AD." Each issue contained three solitaire games starring characters such as Judge Dredd, Nemesis the Warlock, Slaine, and Rogue Trooper. A significant portion of the volume is taken up with standard and advanced rules for a revised version of Battleforce 2, a fast-playing game system amenable to mass combat. Cards measure 1 and 1/8 X 1 and 3/4 inches. - 8 alien Genestealers for you to assemble and paint.

Beautiful game, and I really like the VitW system.

Description "Board game for 2-4 players. The winner of each round is the player who was last able to enchant a card. This will be a stand-alone expansion to the The Dungeon of Dorukan and will not require the base game to play.
Comments
Jogo sobre uma hipotética invasão japonesa ao Hawai. Easy to get the rules down. Plan to play again. The first time I played, there was literally one play I could make (in my choice of two directions, of course) before the board was locked up. You win the round.
WAW DG. I do like this game after my first play.
The main downsides: 1) U.S planes too powerful (done for game balance purposes) 2) rolling for U.S unit movement points can get tedious. The rules have also got ever OOB from the last 80 years plus ratings. While being somewhat simple, there are lots of little differences between the two forces to add some depth and flavor. La caja es vieja pero en bastante buen estado.

Another classic game. Risk really requires the right crowd and the right mood. The multi-table version sounds fun, but I doubt I will ever get to try that, unfortunately.

Solo only. This one is interesting because it shows the repeated incursions.
UP.
Got map and counters with my Trajan expansion kit, but does not have original magazine game.
Not as successful as Trajan, but still crazy in its own way.

Mechanic Hex-and-Counter
Description This is a set of miniatures wargame rules for refighting the english civil war. Both sides have reserve forces that may come into play as well. Now the bar regulars and trailer park townies must find the murderer among them. Was it barmaid Crystalline Daniels or bingo addict Twyla Fleetwood? Led by powerful warcasters as unrelenting as the Khadoran winter and backed by elite soldiers such as the disciplined Iron Fang Pikemen and the imposing Man-O-War troopers who stride into battle in great steam-powered suits of armor, the army of Khador is ready to crush all who stand against them.
Comments
UP. This one was awful. Still a nice family game.
I finally acquired this game (including the Volume II rulebook) and at first glance I am skeptical of the Gamemaster Catalog ad-copy's claim that it is excellent without a GM... Ok murder mystery game, but nice that you can invite up to 10 players. The box claimed it has solitare rules but they were no more than a boring excersize in putting counters on a map.
Hoping to play this soon. Plays in under an hour, has a well implemented 'take that' element with the action cards.
Command & Strategy #3 Need to dig it out...

Description OPERATION WINTERGEWITTER depicts the attack by the German 57th Panzerekorps to open a corridor to the 6th Army, trapped in the Stalingrad Kessel. The game set contains 5 games that should be played in order from the easiest to the most advanced. The game covers the entire war from December 1941 through 1946 and includes the forces of all participants. The Zeppelin Edition lets you watch the game like a true fan. In order to get to the "cave" you have to roll an exact number, but you may get pushed into the cave if someone lands on your space.
Comments
If you're a 3 year old girl (like my daughter) then you'll probably just love it. 2d edition (four-color box).

Players draw from the Duck Deck to see what kinds of ducks they kill; some Miss Cards included. •41 mercenary regiments.
Comments
Decisions are obvious.
Deluxe edition with glass marbles. To end our evening. I had fun playing all three, though I found Lenaja slightly less interesting and with more errata than the other two designs. -0- Very fun game based on the characters found all across the D&D universe.
Boring. There isn't much of a game in this "game", either.
This game is done well, and ok for what it is...

Description First you have to select a rebel and an R2 droid, then arm yourself with explosives and try to save the Rebel Homeworld. The players no longer need to depend on luck to win the game but rather on their intellectual prowess.
Comments
Nice fun party game! Seriously, a fun game. I could rerate it to a 6, but normally I don't change much, will revisit in a bit. My thanks to Joe Davis for the free copy! At least it's quick!
Party game. Seriously, a fun game. My stepson likes it. My all-time most memorable game? Changed my rating from 8-7.5 after a third play, finding the endgame a little problematic. Worth a try, but not that impressed otherwise. It's hard to see, at a glance, which pieces affect which.

Description SNATCH is a reimplementation of the classic game of Anagrams. The Cards. There is Bingo, Horse racing and stock trading. - Businesses to buy, trade and sell.
Comments
Fast-paced game of anagrams. Reminiscences some decades away! The "modern" look and case are really nice looking too! The real-time characteristic keeps your brain more busy than the planning found in WordXChange.
Clever and fun word/rummy game.
Expansion for "Canyon".
