One Night Ultimate Werewolf board game review – If you have to kill me, at least kill him too

At MMGaming we don’t just draw the line at video games. We’re geeks through and through and something we have slowly but surely be gaining a profound appreciation of over the past few years is Board Games. So it seems reasonable that now we have developed a decent repertoire of board games, that we could start reviewing them in the same way we video games. One Night Ultimate Werewolf and the subsequent One Night Ultimate Vampire are both, together (because they are not entirely separate games), easily within my top 3 board games of all time and have been sitting there proudly ever since they soared there so effortlessly.

Mage Wars Board Game review – Bro, do you even board control?

At MMGaming we don’t just draw the line at video games. We’re geeks through and through and something we have slowly but surely be gaining a profound appreciation of over the past few years is Board Games. So it seems reasonable that now we have developed a decent repertoire of board games, that we could start reviewing them in the same way we video games. Mage Wars by Arcane Wonders is one of the most stand out games I’ve ever played. Easily in my top 5, certainly in my top 3 and maybe even approaching the top spot of all the board games I’ve ever played. It’s no surprise really then that the game has been nominated for and won numerous awards since its release in 2012.

Neptune’s Pride 2 Journal (Part 4 of 4) – The Docco Swarm

Early in 2013 me and my friends played a closed game of Neptune’s Pride 2: Triton, before even the glorious saga that was the war of the Space Bears. During the surprisingly brief, two-week-long, game I once again kept a journal of the exploits of my Empire in a rise and fall of epic proportions. Despite it now being two years later, I kept all my materials and have finally decided that the time is ripe to post the story. This journal log is the final part of four, but you can read the previous entries here, here and here

Neptune’s Pride 2 Journal (Part 3 of 4) – The Triforce War

Early in 2013 me and my friends played a closed game of Neptune’s Pride 2: Triton, before even the glorious saga that was the war of the Space Bears. During the surprisingly brief, two-week-long, game I once again kept a journal of the exploits of my Empire in a rise and fall of epic proportions. Despite it now being two years later, I kept all my materials and have finally decided that the time is ripe to post the story. This journal log is part three of four, but you can read the previous entries here and here.

Neptune’s Pride 2 Journal (Part 1 of 4) – Once more unto the breach

Early in 2013 me and my friends played a closed game of Neptune’s Pride 2: Triton, before even the glorious saga that was the war of the Space Bears.

Neptune’s Pride 2: Triton review – Backstabbing better than Assassin’s Creed

Having played a game in the original Neptune’s Pride and now having played through a number of Neptune’s Pride 2: Triton (a name I approve of as it is one of the moons of Neptune) games I think I am in a reasonably educated and sensible position to produce a review on the new and improved game. It is a game which caused heartache and strife for both me and Tim, way back when we played the original. Tim reviewed the game after playing with a number of people from the RPS boards and I produced a diary of my exploits in the game (Parts 1 and 2 here). This new instalment of the game promised just as much and so me and Tim were both incredibly eager to dive right in and this time created a private game with our friends. The game is, as far as I’m aware, still currently in Beta, but the meat of the game is there and I believe it is only a matter of fixing bugs and making small balance changes here and there before it will be officially released (thus why this is a full review and and not an impressions or preview article).

Neptune’s Pride – MMGaming suffers another loss

It is a sad day for MMGaming, and the galaxy, as the second Rock, Paper, Shotgun community Neptune’s Pride epic has been completed (well technically I was in the third game but that’s not important). As you can see from the Star Map above, it did not end well for me. I decided to ally myself with the Yellows (called elephant god), through thick and thin. Eventually Yushi (the red) attacked the both of us because he was simply twice as strong as both of combined.
