Best Board Game Round-Up

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. So, after my recent reviews of One Night Ultimate Werewolf and Mage Wars, I have decided that instead of playing a slow game of catch-up with all the numerous board games I have enjoyed in recent years I thought I would provide a slightly quick-ish run down of the remaining 3 games in my Top 5, with Mage Wars and One Night fairly comfortable near the top. Whilst naming my top 5 is significantly harder than naming those two games as some of my favourites, I feel I am fairly happy with the selection I have made: Cosmic Encounter, Dead of Winter and Codenames.

Shut Up Sit Down CHRISTMAS SPECIAL!

This episode they check out some interesting games and supposedly the best designed game of all time! Makes me want it. Check it check it.

SHUT UP. And sit down.

Well this isn’t even a video game post but I wanted to share it with you guys anyway. You may have heard me talk about Rock Paper Shotgun before, it is a site I frequent and has some fantastic articles written by really great people. One of those people, Quinns, recently left. He started up a show called “Shut up and sit down”  which reviews board games NOW BEAR WITH ME.
