Cardboard Children – Jamaica

By Robert Florence on July 22nd, 2014.

Hello youse.

Every home should have a good family game. What is a family game? It’s a game that the whole family can play, obviously. Can’t you work any of this stuff out for yourself? If I have to explain every single concept to you we’re going to be here all day! Anyway, a great family game is something that mum, dad, the kids, granny and the weird lodger in the basement can play. It is easy to explain, plays quick, and great fun. It also helps if it looks beautiful. Sadly, a game with all these qualities is as rare as rocking horse shit (which is even more rare nowadays – jeez, when was the last time you even saw a rocking horse?). Oh, but, anyway, point is, I got a family game for you. Read on.

Cardboard Children: Cards Against Humanity

By Robert Florence on July 15th, 2014.

Content warning: references to sexual violence.

Hello youse.

In this silly old board and card gaming world, heavy, serious shit doesn’t happen much. When heavy, serious shit does happen, I think it’s really weird to ignore it. At the moment, certain people are talking about a boycott of the card game Cards Against Humanity.

Best Boardgames: The Complete Cardboard Children Top 50

By RPS on July 10th, 2014.

It is very easy to lose things when living in the thrall of the endless bear. You make something, you put it down and suddenly it’s gone, lost over the horizon. You type some words into the search box to try to find it again but, alas, the Rock Paper Shotgun Search-O-Tron 3000 returns nothing.

And so here we are, to gather Rab’s Complete Top 50 Boardgames posts into a single set of links, better that you might bookmark it, print it out, study it, love it. Did you ever wonder what boardgames you should play? We’ve got five videos and five articles that will tell you.

Cardboard Children – Merchant of Venus

By Robert Florence on July 8th, 2014.

Hello youse.

Many thanks for watching that epic Top 50 Board Games of all time video series. I had a lot of fun doing it, and it made me revisit a lot of my favourite games. Today we’ll talk about something new. Merchant of Venus is a trading game set in space, and it’s considered a bit of a classic. Does it still stand up today? Read on.

Cardboard Children – Off The List

By Robert Florence on June 24th, 2014.

Hello youse.

Before my final video next week, my TOP 10 BOARD GAMES OF ALL TIME, I wanted to write about the games that I missed from the list. I’ll give you the reasons why. I’ll talk a little bit about games that will probably end up on the list at some point. Basically, these games need to be called out right here, because each one gives me a pang of hurty-hurty about why they ain’t on my list.

By Robert Florence on June 10th, 2014.

Rik Mayall is dead.

This column was supposed to be an analysis of my last Top 50 boardgames video, but I wanted to talk a little bit about Rik Mayall. “What does Rik Mayall have to do with board games?!” I hear you ask.

Cardboard Children – Marvel Dicemasters

By Robert Florence on May 27th, 2014.

Hello youse.

I’m taking a short one-week break from my incredible Top 50 list to bring you a REVIEW of a brand new game. Time is of the essence with this game, because the first print run is sold out, and if any of you freaks want it you’ll have to get your orders for the new print sorted out ASAP. And hey – I wouldn’t be interrupting my Top 50 if the game wasn’t worth telling you about. So READ ON.

Hello youse.

Let’s break down last week’s Top 50 entries. Are you watching my video series? I hope so, for your sake. I’ll kill you is what I’m saying! I’ll actually cut you! I’m enjoying doing the videos.

Cardboard Children – Rab’s Top 50: Breakdown 2

By Robert Florence on May 6th, 2014.

Hello youse.

I could have predicted this. I could have predicted that by the time I was a couple of videos into my now-legendary Top 50 Board Games of ALL TIME list, I’d be starting to have second thoughts about my chosen games. It doesn’t help that I’m playing games all the time, and good ones, and now I’m constantly beating myself up with – “And THIS isn’t on my list? Idiot!”

Anyway, let’s look at my latest entry, in a little bit more detail. I’ll panic next week.
