5.0 out of 5 stars The presentation tin is great - a lovely way to receive them, 14 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The presentation tin is great - a lovely way to receive them.

The dice themselves are a great weight, they feel good when rolling (I like heavy stuff - give a real feeling of quality!). There's a couple of very minor marks (small dents) on the D10s but nothing serious and they certainly don't interfere with the numerals. The D4 utilising the numerals at the top point rather than the base as many D4s do is a nice touch - makes things more consistent with other dice.

Overall an excellent set of dice and highly recommended for a bit of "bling" in your RPG sessions.

Amazing pads - I can't feel a thing when performing knee stops. They've definitely saved my ageing joints! Comfy and easy to fit with very little shifting when worn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very atmospheric and tense Zombie action!, 27 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The notion of a post-Zombie-apocalypse is a little cliche these days, but Dead Of Winter pulls it off very well. There's a real sense of doom when playing the game and it genuinely feels like there's a real struggle going on for the Survivors you control - it gives the game and the players a sense of purpose when playing. Atmosphere is everything and Dead of Winter captures that atmosphere very well.

When first playing the game, there is a *lot* to learn and understand. It can feel quite complicated to get to grips with the game mechanics. The first game I played with 2 others, it took us 2 hours just to set it up and play through 2 turns of the game! That was the mission the game suggests to play first as it's supposed to be quick!

However, now I'm much more familiar with the game mechanics and flow, it's miles faster and the turns fly by, meaning the game can be completed in the suggested play times. The game setup still takes a bit of time (about 20 mins) but it's well worth it. The game pieces and cards are extremely high quality, the box has plenty of space to store all the components and even comes with more than enough self-seal bags for the cardboard tokens, something other games could learn from!

The game itself contains both co-operative and antagonistic elements - each player (and their team of survivors) must both work together for the benefit of the colony in order to survive, but each team has its own agenda. That agenda may be in-line with the other teams, or be purely self-motivated and working against the flow. This adds further strategy and tension to the game and also means you're unlikely to get the same game twice as the agendas are determined at random at the start of the game during setup. Each turn has a "crisis" to avert (or perhaps cause if you're working against the group) which can have drastic consequences if not averted. On top of that, there are random "Crossroad" cards drawn for each player's turn which can add further group decisions to consider if they trigger given the right circumstances.

All in all, it's a very deep and well thought out game requiring careful consideration and planning. It's not a "quick 45 mins" blast sort of game - but certainly worth the time and effort to play it. Lock the doors, bar the windows and hunker down for one of the best board games out there!

Really comfy and I can talk whilst wearing it, but be careful when moulding for the first time. I nearly bit right through it when it was soft!

5.0 out of 5 stars easy to fit and fit for purpose, 21 Aug. 2015

Comfy, easy to fit and fit for purpose. Knee pads not really suitable for Roller Derby long term, but they're good to start with. Perfect for skate parks, discos and scooting round a park!

Really great knife - the blade replacement is a little tricky to start with, but once you get the hang of it, it's really simple. Make sure the yellow slider is pushed all the way over to the side of the blade you're replacing and you're golden.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thief Trilogy Review, 7 Sept. 2010
Length:: 7:25 Mins

An overall review of the Thief series covering all three games. There's a slight retrospective feel to the review, so hopefully it will introduce the trilogy to anyone new to Garret and his antics. A fantastic series of games and a "must play" for anyone who hasn't already.
