First (and last) Impressions: The Isle of Dr Necreaux

I like to think myself a fairly balanced and reasonable person (stop laughing at the back!), giving things the time they deserve before making a decision on whether I like it or not. It’s very rare I just flat out call something rubbish or that I hate it or say that it’s worse than Hitler, but I feel very strongly that 2 of these 3 opinions apply to The Isle of Dr Necreaux (Ok, ok. It’s not worse than Hitler). Buying...

Shadows Upon Lassadar

We’ve been looking at Print and Play quite a bit lately, and I’ve found a little solitaire gem, “Shadows Upon Lassadar“. Design Todd Sanders is one of the more prolific home boardgame designers, and his work has a fantastic high design feel.

That went to shit with the WoW TCG release of Crown of the Heavens but in a singular turn of spawn I opened a Corrupted Hippogryph loot mount which is sitting on eBay...

World Of Warcraft Trading Card Game: The Realm Qualifier Blues Part 3 – Ponderments

So yeah, I got my arse handed to me. It was a good few hours of cards, and I got a random prize of a deck box but, for me, it’s just compounded how much the game needs to be steered away from the few decks that people are playing. I’ve seen the Murloc, blue Hunter and blue Druid decks so many times over the last few months that it’s harking back to older days before Cryptozoic took over from Upper Deck where there were only a few...
