5.0 out of 5 stars Explosive fun!, 22 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fuse (Toy)
10 minutes to defuse a tonne of bombs before your ship blows up! Well. What a game! What boils down to just rolling dice and matching them to a few cards which represent bombs managed to capture my game groups imagination and set pulses racing as we all worked together to defuse the bombs. You have 10 minutes to do this and time ticks down in realtime, the dice are argued over as you try to defuse the last few bombs...will you make the right choices or will it all go up in flames. Buy it, you will have a blast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Talisman killer., 22 Mar. 2016
The board game is a delight to look at, the board itself is beautifully illustrated and the components are second to none. The game itself plays well, it plays smoothly with little to confuse the players. There are asymmetrical powers for the players and each player is playing against each other in a straight up 'race' to the finish. I think this game replaces Talisman for me, as it allows for actual decisions to be made and is set in a fantasy world which should appeal to hobby gamers and won't be too hard to grasp for newcomers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun...well, apart from the price., 22 May 2015
This review is from: Cosmic Encounter (Toy)
Whilst I really enjoy this game I can only rate it with 3 stars at present as the cost of the game VS playtime is out of kilter.

There isn't much in the way of anything in the box. you get some cards, some circular card planet tokens and plastic ships in various colours, but you can have 2 games with more content that this for about the same price.

I would hold off until it is priced realistically.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just buy another game., 22 Dec. 2014
By FAR the single most terrible console port of all time !

Avoid this game if you wan to play a game.

Buy this game if you want to fiddle with your PC settings for hours and hours and hours....

22/12/2014 and there is screen tear - no vsync - texture pop in - you can't even turn off the subtitles without losing them for the german speaking parts.

Buy something else instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great card but where are the accessories ?, 5 Dec. 2014
A great card but just FYI don't expect a 6 to 8 pin adapter with your new card, MSI have stopped shipping them with any accessories at all, not even a driver disk !

Naughty.

Great card though. (Once you've made the journey to Maplin's to get the adapter...sigh!)

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT compatible with the Epson XP212, 23 Oct. 2014
BEWARE ! These cartridges do NOT work with the Epson XP 212. I have checked them on two separate XP212 models and both rejected the cartridges.

I wish the seller/amazon would update the listing to reflect this as I am not the first customer to buy these and report the issue.

I tried on the off chance they would work - save yourself the hassle and buy elsewhere.

2.0 out of 5 stars AWFUL reading from Felicia Day., 4 Sept. 2014
I love R. A. Salvatore's books but this has some really terrible voice acting. Felicia Day is by far the worst, her acting is atrocious - I have no idea what accent she was trying to use for the dwarves in her reading but it is so bad it isn't funny. There are unknowns out there that could have done a better job - we don't need a 'geek' name to sell these books, they sell themselves.

Next time use some REAL talent.

The stories are of course excellent - I am just making comment on the readers themselves.

Buy the book instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game BUT Amazon has the wrong version listed !, 6 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jamaica Board Strategy Game (Toy)
The game is still fantastic BUT...if you are looking for the Asmodee version this listing is not it.

The listing is for the Gameworks version and although the game is the same the box is not. The box you will receive is the one with all of the cartoon characters on it.

The box looked better as a chest in my opinion but it doesn't affect the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing and overlooked game., 1 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cyclades Game (Toy)
Cyclades is a fantastic looking game. The artwork is beautiful and the components are very high quality. You play as one of 5 factions who are locked in a race to build (or conquer) two cities. To aid you your faction will need to make gold from trade routes over seas or harvest from the land and then spend it on less gentle pursuits. Spend gold to raise The Kraken and destroy your rivals fleets, send harpies to wrench control of islands away from your opponents by snatching up his army, wage war with all your favourite mythological monsters at your side.

But wait, you only have a certain amount of gold and you are all praying to the same greedy Gods to get their favour. The bidding wars between players is as brutal as any combat and you will be cursing your friends as they win Ares' favour and he grants them a horde of blood thirsty Spartans to take your beautiful city away from you whilst bribing Medusa to turn your Army to stone!

This game will have you talking about key moments from the nights play for days and you will want to play it again and again and again for many years to come.

Buy it!

2.0 out of 5 stars A good game with TERRIBLE components, 1 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Gamewright Cube Quest Game (Toy)
This game is undeniably fun BUT nobody seems to have mentioned the awful components.

The game requires a flat surface to play on, Gamewright released this game with 2 large mouse mats FOLDED in half in the box. You will never get these things flat, believe me I have tried everything. The two mats meet up and the crease in the middle will mean that one player will keep hitting a large seam and their shots will stop or fly into the air. All skill gone with the awful mats then...but wait it gets worse. The cubes which you flick aren't wooden, they are plastic...hollow plastic! They have no weight at all, so say goodbye to making a curling shot or a jump shot which doesn't enter low orbit!

If you complain to Gamewright they will send you out replacement mats, but there is nothing you can do about the cubes.

Catacombs is worth a look if you liked this game.
