Asbestos and Depression – A Joking Hazard Review

fullsizerender

Party games are all the rage right now. They’re the new black, they’re the bees knees (and no, I don’t believe that bees actually have knees) and they are, in fact, the s**t. People can’t get enough of them, be it Cards Against Humanity or… Eh, who am I kidding, they all want to be Cards Against Humanity. Cyanide & Happiness, one of the wittier webcomics that you’ve seen on Facebook, has decided to get in on the action with their own party game, Joking Hazard. So, is it cyanide and happiness or asbestos and depression?

Meow, Meow, Boom – Exploding Kittens Review

IMG_7987.JPG

Things might not be good right now. Some would say they’re kind of awful and draining and scary. So, this week, we’re going to just keep it simple. We’re going to keep it simple, we’re going to focus on games. So, here’s what we got: It’s an elimination card game where you are murdered by kittens doing kitten things at inopportune times. That is, literally, it. This is Exploding Kittens (and Exploding Kittens NSFW Edition).

Perpetual Motion Machine Review

Bad news: You’re in the Edwardian era. Every one is having an existential crisis, the industrial revolution has it so every thing is covered in coal, and the whole of society is in silent upheaval. The good news? You’re an unpaid intern for a swindler– I’m sorry, inventor– Who has created a perpetual motion device! Well, in theory. It’s kind of held together by ducktape and hot glue? It’s about to go on the show room floor, and it’s up to you to make it last just long enough to impress some folks. Good thing you’re such a wiz at poker! This is Perpetual Motion Machine.

Adventure Time: Card Wars Review

realburninhell
This review hurts. Curious as to know why? This game hurts. Rarely, and we’re talking “lunar eclipse on Friday the 13th while the Cubs win the pennant” rarely, we find a game with no intrinsic value: A game lacking style, strategy, creativity or even fun. This game is lazy in the most frustrating sense. We’re not even going to attempt to give this game some sort of colorful context or thematics. This is Adventure Time: Card Wars. Continue reading

This is Hanabi! America!

Burn In Hell Review

FIREEEE
Before we begin, Skip-A-Turn would like to send it’s thanks to the Newbie Blogger Initiative, and would humbly like to accept it’s award of the Good Moniker Medal! Now, onto our regularly scheduled review!

It’s hot. It’s not just hot, it’s humid. The vinyl seats of your car stick to you, you’re at your driest when you’re in the shower, and did we mention it’s hot? Because we’re not completely sure we’re being as clear as we could be right now: It’s like you’re living in a constant sauna that’s on full blast next to Pompeii as it goes kablooie. Every so often some putz will try to tell you to think of some place colder, as if thinking of the melting ice caps will make you feel less like you’re roasting at two fifty! No, we’re going the opposite route. Way opposite. We’re going to the hottest thing in existence! This is Burn in Hell.

Munchkin Review

Munchkin

You’ve bravely made your way through the dungeon. You’ve taken quite a beating, went from a human to an elf to a dwarf to… You think a halfling, you’re not positive at this point. Possibly a Vampire? You’re not sure. But now you’re carrying a mace in one hand, a coffin in another, you’re wearing skin-tight pants, and you’re ready to take on the final monster that blocks you from the exit and your countless booty. But then you see it. And you see the absolute horror that is… The Gazebo. This is Munchkin.
