  • The Mad Magazine Game Review

    Each Player starts with $10,000. The board is Monopoly-like, with 2 inner tracks that can also be used. Play is counter-clockwise and you must roll the dice with your left hand. Certain spaces, and the ever present ‘Card’ cards send you elsewhere, make you pay money (good), make you get money (bad), switch seats with someone else or exchange money with another player..

    Let’s Make a Board Game

    We have been looking at Kickstarter board game projects for quite some time. We play lot’s of games, so effectively we are constantly consuming content. Whether that’s reviews of games, the games themselves, opinions etc. I’m a firm believer in creating content not just consuming which is why we have a review site. Well, that’s partially true. We also want media passes to PAX expo 2014..
