It’s a mad-dash scramble: Root Review

By David and Helen / January 11, 2019

Every Wednesday night five hardcore gamers gather at my place for two-and-a-half to four hours of intense boardgame play. We are the Anarchist Mountain Goats – or AMGs.

The weather since Christmas has been perfect for the school holidays, for beach days and camping.  When you go camping what games do you take to play for the evenings? Do you have a family or friend favourite that has to be packed?  Terra Mystica is still our firm favourite but a fun family one…

Social, Fun (sometimes drinking) Games

By David and Helen / October 11, 2018

So, our two adult sons enjoy social games that are fun to play, easy to pick up and able to cater for a group.  We have played Werewolf with them before (and enjoyed it). When we purchased Seriously Board, they asked whether we sold Cards against Humanity.  We did not stock it… but we do…
