Derek takes a look at T.I.M.E. Stories from Space Cowboys. […]

Review: Queen’s Architect

Queen’s Architect was an unknown quantity to me before it arrived – a brand new designer (Volker Schächtele), and not a lot of buzz ahead of time. However, I always enjoy reading the rules to games before I play them and often find I can get a good sense of the rhythm and cleverness of […]

Review: Timeline Challenge

The Timeline series is something we’ve covered many times here at MeepleTown, in part because it’s so simple and elegant, a great way to pass the time and learn some trivia. Timeline Challenge is the next evolution in the series, turning a rather simple card game into a full-fledged board game. While many great board games have […]

Expansion Round-Up: Five Tribes, Evolution, Imperial Settlers

Five Tribes: The Artisans of Naqala

Five Tribes was our game of the year last year, as all three writers for MeepleTown enjoyed this game immensely. As 2015 has gone by, I find myself liking this game more and more, to the point where it’s in my Top 10 games ever, maybe even Top 5. […]

Review: Mage Wars Academy Core Set: Beastmaster Vs. Wizard

For many years before I was seriously into board gaming, I played Magic: the Gathering extensively and exclusively. Once Settlers of Catan introduced me into a whole new world of gaming, I also discovered that Magic wasn’t the only excellent head-to-head game of fantasy combat – Summoner Wars, for example, has become a staple for me as well. Another […]

Review: Mysterium

After an awesome-but-short-lived experience at Gen Con 2015, I named Libellud’s Mysterium my game of the con. Months later, it’s finally widely available, and in the meantime, I’ve also had the chance to play Tajemnicze Domostwo, the original Polish edition from Portal Games. Does Mysterium live up to the hype – including my own – after all this time? Here’s […]

Review: 7 Wonders: Duel

7 Wonders is absolutely one of my favorite games of all time, if not number one. The base game is so perfect that I’ve actually been relatively harsh on its three expansions, Leaders, Cities, and Babel – these expansions need to be just as perfect so as not to tarnish such a thing of beauty. So it was with great […]

Review: Viceroy

When I first played and reviewed Splendor, Space Cowboys’ debut hit, I was immediately taken by it although no buzz had happened yet. Splendor is still one of my favorite games of 2014, and certainly garnered its fair share of accolades. So, when I heard Viceroy was “Splendor on steroids”, I geeked out a little, even though I hadn’t been impressed […]

Review: Mottainai

Mottainai is a bit of an investment, but the payoff is quite large for card combo lovers like me. […]

Review: Discoveries

Asmodee has become a company of many small studios, each with their own flair. While Matagot and Repos have established themselves over years of experience, and Space Cowboys managed to define themselves very quickly, ludonaute is a more recent member of the family that seems to have decided 2015 is their year. In addition to […]
