Board Stupid – my games review articles


For 2015, my family and I have determined that we are going to play more board games. This also applies to having friends around to play games as well.

With this in mind I have decided that I shall write quick reviews of the games and use a scoring scale of 1-5 with 5 being the best. Each shall stand alone and shan’t be judged against a similar product.

Games that we own, have bought over the holiday period and which shall be reviewed are;

Rampage aka Terror in Meeple City
Talisman
Scotland Yard
Robo Rally
Sherlock Cluedo
Pandemic – with Bio Terrorism expansion
Guilds of Cadwallon
Fighting Fantasy
D&D 3rd edition – yup, old skool
Smallworld – Underground
X-Wing
Castle Panic!

I shall return and edit this page, adding links to reviews and extra games that we acquire.

About mattsylvester

Father of two beautiful daughters and married to the beautiful Karen, Matthew has been reading and writing fantasy and science fiction since he first read the Hobbit at the age of 7. Matthew was Features Editor, Technical Consultant and regular columnist for magazines such as ‘Fighters’, ‘Combat’, ‘TKD & Korean Martial Arts’ and ‘Traditional Karate’. These are the four leading martial arts magazines in the United Kingdom. He is also the author of the critically acclaimed 'Practical Taekwondo: Back to the Roots', which has been sold around the world. With regard to his martial arts background he has been studying martial arts since 1991. In 1995 he hosted Professor Rick Clark of the ADK and since then has been studying pressure points and their uses in the martial arts and on the street (initially as a Special Constable and as a Door Supervisor). All of this practical hands-on experience means that he is uniquely placed to write fight scenes that are not only plausible but some of which are based on personal or anecdotal experience. Matthew has had a number of short stories published by Fringe Works, KnightWatch Press, Anderfam Press and Emby Press.

  1. I’ve been tempted by X-wing (painting up my own rebel squadron). Talisman is also on Kindle (both lite and full).
    No Monopoly? Lol.
