5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing lapel mic, 19 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Amazing lapel mic. Note that you will need an adapter to plug it into your equipment - for XLR devices, you'll need this one https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B003ZDX3DA/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_6.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality bit of kit, 19 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good quality bit of kit, and significantly reduces unwanted noise from cable/stand vibrations. However, don't do what I did and push the mic into the clip (i.e. so the mic pushes the clamp apart), as this resulted in pulling some of the rubber away from the plastic. You need to slide the mic in long-ways - I really wish there was an instruction sheet to explain this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice expansion to a great light-weight game., 19 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This short review is based purely on playing the game with only two players. There are four separate modules that can be added to the base game in any combination.

The chocolate module adds more choice and interesting options to the game, and it also results in bigger scores (more gold). The map module allows for a bit more strategy too as it mitigates some of the randomness of the jungle tiles. Just these two modules alone have added much more depth to the game.

I was not so impressed with the watering module. players maxed out on the water carrier early on, but didn't really use the watering tiles much as there was little need. Your mileage may vary though, and it might be different with more players.

I've not played the village module yet, but it looks good but will add more complexity to the game. I'll update this review once I've tried it.

Note that the chocolate and watering expansions add new jungle tiles to the game. As such, they replace some of the existing tiles (so there are always the same number, regardless of which modules you are using). It was a bit of a head-do working out which tiles to keep/remove for a two-player game (you replace some for the new modules, and you also remove some when playing with 2 players).

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible bit of kit, 19 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Terrible bit of kit. Can probably hold a sheet of paper, but not much more - even fairly light items cause the flex to bend. This is made worse by the fact the clamps do not line up and do not grip thin poles very well (could not get it to grip to a c-stand). Don't waste your money on this, pay more and get something that will actually do the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple rules, very deep game., 2 May 2016
This review is from: 7 Wonders: Duel (Toy)
This is an amazing 2 player strategy game. Its easy to learn, but has plenty of depth. One of the best games from 2015.

4.0 out of 5 stars My favourite worker placement game, 2 May 2016
This review is from: Champions of Midgard (Toy)
This is by far the best worker placement game I have played (way more fun and thematic than games like Stone Age or Lords of Waterdeep). Although there is some randomness in the dice-based combat (different dice represent different types of warrior), this is an intentional aspect of the game design and part of what what makes it fun. You can mitigate your luck to a certain extent (using favour tokens to get re-rolls, gaining cards to help with sea voyages, etc.). Also, there is a risk vs reward element to the game - going for the monsters across the sea can net you more points and rewards, but are more difficult to defeat.

I've yet to have a game where very good or bad dice rolls has negatively impacted the outcome of the game. Ultimately though, if you don't want to put your fate in the hands of the dice gods, try one of the other aforementioned games.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite games. Really good fun with 3 or 4 ..., 4 April 2016

This review is from: Evolution (Toy)
One of my favourite games. Really good fun with 3 or 4 people, but not so good with 2 (not played it with more than 4 but I think it would still work well). There are some great card combos and strategy without the rules being over-complicated.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great coop game, 4 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Legends of Andor (Base Game) (Toy)
Great coop game. Only played two players but works really well: the legends are challenging and take a few attempts to succeed at each one.
