Cardboard Children – Queen’s Necklace

Hello youse.

I’ve been playing board and card games with my daughter far more regularly these days. She’s 9 now, and so she’s crossed over into an area where lots of games are suddenly entirely playable, and to a high level of ability. In fact, I’ll be honest, she’s more often than not hammering me at games. The most recent game she completely dismantled me over is a new favourite of ours. It’s a game about creating and selling beautiful jewels, and it’s called Queen’s Necklace.

Cardboard Children – T.I.M.E. Stories Revisited

Hello youse.

I’ve covered T.I.M.E. Stories before, and I was very interested in the response to that review in the comments. I’ve also found the discussion about T.I.M.E.

By the way, the Red Planet is Mars.

Cardboard Children: WWE – Superstar Showdown

Hello youse.

It seems like WWE Superstar Showdown is a board game that hasn’t made much of an impression upon release. It’s by Gale Force Nine, the team behind the excellent Spartacus and the strong Sons of Anarchy, and it’s about wrestling. Yeah, wrestling! The wrasslin’! WWE! The squared circle! It’s a board game set inside this very ring, featuring a selection of current WWE Superstars. And they’re having a Showdown!

Cardboard Children: Quadropolis

Hello youse.

Quadropolis from Days of Wonder is a board game about building a city. Well, it’s not really. It doesn’t really feel like building a city at all. It feels like you’re laying out buildings, yes, but you’re really just meeting conditions, netting points. But that’s okay. I’m going to tell you why that’s okay.
