Unboxing new games
« on: June 05, 2014, 04:53:18 AM »
We've collected the "unboxing" photos of new games under their own front page category now.  This is kind the "screenshot" equivalent for us luddite tabletop gamers  O0

Feel free to share your own unboxing photos here  ;D

getting there - when you add a new category, you gotta go back and manually tag the posts you want

oldie but goodie - back when I was originally going to write the review for ACG and then they started shuffling people around...

Well with the D-Day anniversary and the watching of "The Longest Day" this weekend, I've opted to finally open my copy of "Paul Koenig's Fortress Europe".  The components look quite nice, especially the extra large and thick laser cut counters.  Going through the rules now, I hope to get this one on the table ASAP.


Oh look, how did my name get in there??   ;)

^Wow. The game looks great, including the map which looks like a vintage 80's wargame map.

I love the smell of manuals\rule books (is that odd?). Plus looking at the sheets of counters is a buzz in itself.
