Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game
Or are they Cylons bent on destroying Humanity? If your gaming group enjoys highly-thematic political intrigue, and can handle some good-natured infighting and backstabbing, you'll enjoy Battlestar Galactica. If you like playing a game where there is a continuous challenge, and victory is always a very close call, Battlestar Galactica is for you. If you're a fan of the hit Sci Fi Channel show, and want to simulate the twists and turns on your game table, then Battlestar Galactica is the game you have been waiting for!

Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game
Fan-Created Mod Reinvents the Battlestar Galactica Board Game
Such was the the case with the Battlestar Galactica, a game cut off at the knees last year when Indie Boards & Cards published The Resistance. This new game on the block played in a fraction of the time with as much if not more suspense, relegating Battlestar Galactica to the back of the game closet. Yet while I primarily play games as a test of skill, there is something to be said for an enjoyable theme

The Quacks of Quedlinburg: The Alchemists Expansion Review
Final Thoughts:. While I don’t consider The Alchemists an essential expansion for The Quacks of Quedlinburg, I do think it adds enough interesting decisions and fun mechanics to recommend it as a purchase. I will qualify this opinion by saying this isn’t the type of expansion that makes sense to throw into early plays of the game or if it’s being taught to new players

The Quacks of Quedlinburg
Fun New Game
Rating: 4.5 Playing this game was simple and fun, and there are different variations that can be played with added difficulty levels. I really enjoyed learning how to play, game play, and the suspense of whether or not the pot was going to "explode" at any moment. The only reason for the 1/2 star of...

Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game
Battlestar Galactica’s beloved board game is back, but in Arkham Horror form
It was a potent mix of thematic event cards and cunning deception that has given the game an extraordinary reputation among hobbyists.

Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game
Fun and Deceptive
I want to start out this review saying that this is the best board game I have ever played. I've never seen a game make you so paranoid and unwilling to work with people unless you have to and it stay so fun. Players who are new to the game will be slightly overwhelmed with the seeming complexity of...
