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...

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

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!

The Quest for El Dorado
The Quest for El Dorado Review (featuring Heroes & Hexes Expansion) | Gameosity
Heroes & Hexes also adds new terrain tiles to the game, greatly increasing the variety of maps you can race through!. Andrew: Like I said, more stuff! I love what Heroes & Hexes adds to The Quest for El Dorado. The base game is sublime in its simplicity, but I’m glad to see that there are more options that you can fold into your experience, if that’s what you want!

The Quest for El Dorado
Great game for adults and older kids with unlimited play options!
This is a really fun game, best for adults and older kids! I like how, because of being able to rearrange the board pieces, there are oodles of possibilities for its layout, so one could go a long time before needing to play the game exactly the same way! It took a lot of thought to design this game...

This is not a little child's gift item; it's for boardgame junkies who can play complex games based on the series. The recipient (26 years old) was delighted with it.
