The latest Awaken Realms miniatures boardgame, Nemesis, has the very familiar sci-fi setting of a crew stranded on a xenomorph infested space ship. Although it is cooperative, each player has both a personal and corporate secret agenda that are part of their victory conditions. So when a player tells you that the engines are working or that you are totally headed to Earth, you might want to see for yourself. High-quality components and gorgeous miniatures make this game worth checking out. Don’t believe me? Watch the unboxing!
Is that a xenomorph egg in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
The latest gigantic boardgame offering from Cool Mini Or Not, based on Adrian Smith’s graphic novel Chronicles of Hate, HATE: the boardgame. It pits player tribes against each other for control of the lands by taking it from other tribes in raids and combat. Does it live up to the hype? Are the miniatures as amazing as we hoped? Find out when we unbox HATE.
Have pre-assembled miniatures (especially from all those Kickstarter boardgames) that are warped or bent and just plain ridiculous looking? Here is a quick tutorial using an electric kettle, a glass of cold water and a glass for hot water to straighten them out. Most of the time it is a miracle worker and will have your minis looking like they did coming out of their molds. Just don’t burn your fingers! Have a look and please give us any comments or questions based on your experience.

We unbox Village Attacks, the latest game from Grimlord Games, makers of channel favorite, Endure the Stars. This tower defense style, cooperative, miniatures boardgame pits you the “monsters” against waves of angry villagers supported by their town heroes, which take the form of RPG character classes of humans. See what they did there?
What do you get in the standard core game box? What extras did their Kickstarter deliver? You know you need to find out!
Absent our faithful expert in all things Malifaux, Nick, we unbox the Dual Commander pledge for Wyrd Miniatures’ The Other Side game. We chose The Cult of the Burning Man and Abyssinia as our two allegiances. Are the pre-assembled miniatures as good as Malifaux? What do you get in an allegiance box? Watch and find out!
Apologies in advance for the never quite in focus overhead camera.
We unbox the CMON Kickstarter, Massive Darkness, a fantasy board game that includes some inspiration from MOBAs. Will the new mechanics be an innovation or a gimmick? How about all of those fantasy miniatures? Are they compatible with all other fantasy roleplaying games? Watch our review and find out!
We take a look at the world of Malifaux in its many incarnations including the miniatures skirmish game, the recently Kickstarted miniatures strategy game, The Other Side, and the RPG Through the Breach. Joining us is special guest Nick, the organizer of our local Malifaux group, gremlin lover and all around knowledgeable fellow regarding matters on both sides of the Breach. If you are new to Malifaux, this should give you a good taste of the setting and help you decide if now is the right time to make the leap. If you are already playing let us know in the comments which faction you play and what got you into the game. All responses will be reported to the local Guild office and any use of magic may be severely punished.
