First arriving on the scene in 1971, Uno has done so well that there have been over 150 different versions or variations that have been released in its 45+ year run including such gems as Uno: Glee , Uno: Texas, and of course who can forget the classic Uno: Brett Favre NFL Greatest Player Edition.
Be a police detective in Hong Kong as a murder investigation is under way, but be careful who you trust as one of your own committed the foul deed. Only the Forensic Scientist can provide evidence to help narrow down the suspects but it is still up to the investigators to interpret the information given to them to find what truly happened.
2016 was an amazing year in gaming for us. We played more board games this year then ever before. Our collection keeps growing and we keep having more chances to get both old and new games to the table. That being said, here are our favorite board games played in 2016.
The Holiday shopping season is upon us at last, which means a lot of us will be picking up some board games whether it be for ourselves or as gifts for friends and family. With the sheer number of games out there it can be difficult and overwhelming trying to find good ideas out there, so we made this list to help people find some really good ideas for what games to get.
As Halloween approaches we found ourselves looking for good games to stay in the holiday spirit. We quickly began looking through our board game collection looking for games that would work well for a fun Halloween party. This also led to us doing some research to see if there was anything we were missing (since we could also use an excuse to get more games). We quickly found many lists of scary/horror/zombie games but many were either quite old or only had a few suggestions.

Cat Tower is all about stacking adorable cats on top of each other. Each player takes turns adding their cats to the tower trying not to make it all topple over. Sounds easy enough but as the tower builds up any wrong movement could cause it to come crashing down. If you can get rid of all of your cats you win, but this will require a fair amount of coordination, luck, and skill. Will you be able to get rid of all your cats before the tower comes tumbling down?
Risk, the classic game of war and betrayal, is a game of world domination where each player amasses an army and attempts to take control of the various regions of the world. With an endless series of battles, alliances, and betrayals, Risk has always been an intense game of intrigue. However Risk does have it’s flaws. Games that can seemingly stretch forever, players who are removed from the game and sometimes very quickly into a game, and mechanics that just feel dated and awkward. So maybe the next time Risk is brought to the table you could try one of these.
