Off Topic

Off Topic Review

Off Topic is a game where you have to guess as many words that relates with a topic on the game card against your friends before the time runs out.

What we like

  • Free Shipping
  • You can play off topic with just 2 people or you can host a game night with a group of up to 8 people

What we don’t like

  • The age limit on the game is 13+ but some of the topics is aimed 18+ and above
  • Off Topic is a little bit on the expensive side

How to play

To start of with Off Topic every player have to take an answer board with a corresponding numbered game card.  After that you have to roll the die to determine the letter you are going to play with.

Now you turn over the sand timer and guess as many answers that can relate to the topic on the card. All the answers each player gives much start with the letter the die revealed.

The scoring of the game is very simple. Each unique answer a player gives, starting with the first topic, gets one point. If your answer is the same as the other players, or if the group does not accept it, that answer does not count. No point is awarded then.

Price: $29.99

What's a Dame To Do

What’s a Dame To Do Review

What’s a Dame To-Do is a classic guess what your friend will do game. A scenario is read and all the players must put themselves in their friend’s shoes to guess what they will do.

What we like

  • An all female game is a refreshing difference in between the unisex games you get on the market these days.
  • For hours of fun, this game is very affordable

What we don’t like

  • The game can get repetitive if you look at it the same way every time you play it
  • No expansion packs currently available

How to play

Before you begin to play all the players will have to choose their score folders that they will use during the game. Also the matching Hilarious Card and the Guessing Chip must be collected, after that each player gets 10 Reaction Cards.

Take as many Dilemma cards as there are players. The board will be turned to the player that will start the game and she will take all the Numbered Chips. The player in the spotlight turns over the top card and must read it out loud. For example, “At a party I accidentally bumps against a strangers crotch, what’s a Dame to do?”

The other players look trough their Reaction Cards and chooses one they think the player in the spotlight will do. Everyone hands the cards to the player, which will be shuffled, and she reads each and laying them down.

When all the cards had been read the player then chooses the card that’s most similar to what she would really do.

Reaction Card

The player/s who correctly guessed what the player in the spotlight will do in that situation get an Reaction Card worth 3 points.

The player/s who gave funny answers are awarded a Hilarious cards worth 2 points if the player in the spotlight deems their answer funny.

Gloomhaven

Gloomhaven Review

Gloomhaven  is a dungeon-based board game that reminds one a lot of Dungeons and Dragons, with multiple scenarios and classes to play trough. As a card and tiled-based game, your characters’ actions are controlled by cards. Each player chooses two cards to play per turn.

Each card has a bottom and top half that accordingly gives you certain actions to do. This game focuses a lot on strategic  tactics and well laid out plans. Gloomhavem held the title for the best boardgame  on the leading website BoardGameGeek for the most of three years.

What we like

  • There are several expansion packs available
  • Versatile game (multiple scenarios and characters to play with)

What we don’t like

  • Very expensive
  • Problem with Shipping

How to play

Before you start the game you have to choose a Character Class (Brute, Cragheart, Spellweaver, Mindthief, Tinkerer, Scoundrel and the matching character. Also take the character’s character mat, deck of ability cards and then 5 character tokens.

Shuffle all the Personal Quests cards, Each player will get two but must choose only one to keep. Return the other to the deck.  Trough the game you will gain experience points, you’ll use an Experience tracker to keep track of it.

You can buy useful items with your character’s starting gold. Some of the gold can be used in events so be sure not to spend it all at once

30 Seconds

30 Seconds Review

30 Seconds is the fast paced game where your team of players are in a race to guess all the answers correctly before the 30 seconds is up.

What we like

  • Free Shipping
  • Timer included

What we don’t like

  • More expensive than competitor board players
  • Questions can get complicated

How to play

At the start of each round the starting team throws the 30 seconds die to determines the games weakest player. The die has 6 sides with the values 0, 1 and 2. One player draws a card, the card will either have  a yellow or blue side. On each side there are 5 words printed. The competitor team then turns the timer (30 seconds). The teams score will be calculated by the amount of correct answers and subtracting the incorrect answers from it. The team will then take their icon and move it forward as many correct questions they had.

Clues

The goal for your team is to guess as many questions correct before the time runs out. To do that you have to make use of some well put clues. For example if the answer is Florida the clue will be, in which state is Tallahassee. House rules will make the game more relaxing and easier to play as the official rules can tie the gameplay up a bit.
