Dave had the chance to catch up with Kevin from Inspiring Games, talk about his history with the hobby and about some of the games that he’s working on as part of Inspiring Games.  Including the fantastic looking and sounding Legends Untold which is about to hit Kickstarter.

At the time of recording this Legends Untold was planned to hit Kickstarter on the 15th. The launch has been delayed slightly but rather than wait we wanted to get the interview out and show our support for Kevin and the rest of the Inspiring Games crew.

Timeline: General Interest – A Dave Review

So what is Timeline: General Interest then?

Well it’s a guessing game where you have to work out when things happened in history.

Ok… so it’s kinda like Trivial Pursuit?

Not quite, every card has a year on it and you have to work out whether the event on the card you have happened before, after or in the same year as the cards already on the table.

Right, so you need to be good at history to play this then?

Nope. It’s as much an educational game as it is a quiz as it is a guessing game.

Scythe – A Liz Review

 

scythe-small

Name: Scythe

Players: 2-5 (expansions in future for more players)

Game Length: 2 hours+

Released by Stonemaier Games and designed by Jamey Stegmaier and Alan Stone.

Scythe has certainly quite a hyped game for 2016!  Set in a alternative history of 1920s Europe Dieselpunk setting, it is a competitive game for those who want to go to war with each other!

The idea is simple enough.  Each player controls a country, who are trying to be the top dogs in this Mecha history, and to keep expanding, you need workers, resources and armies. There are objectives to complete and for each of those you will get to place a star on the board. Once the first person reaches 6 stars, the game is over and using the scoring system you tally up and the winner is determined.

I won’t go too deep into the rules, as there are plenty of excellent videos that can show you in more detail! This is a slightly difficult game to describe in words, and much better just playing, or watching a video to understand.
