You Don’t Want to Let Time Slip Away in Pendulum

Pendulum

This wasn’t a game that had grabbed my attention originally. I am not sure quite what it was, but this game, like so many, was lost in the ocean of game releases.

Never fear though, my wife had flagged it and when it went on sale decided to order it. It arrived as a pleasant surprise game for us to get to the table and play.

  • Players: 1-5
  • Playtime (with Setup): We find it between 90-120 minutes
  • Publisher: Stonemaier Games

The Grim Knight Comes to Gotham

The Grim Knight

Every year Knight Models releases a new, limited print run miniature during their Black Friday sale. This year’s model is a brutal, well armed, alternate version of Batman, The Grim Knight!

The Grim Knight comes from an alternate universe to the main DC comic books. In this universe, after the fall of his parents to Joe Chill Bruce Wayne takes up guns. Not just one gun, but lots of guns as can be seen on the miniature.

In that moment where Bruce’s parents are murdered, Joe Chill drops his gun and gathers the pearls that are bounding around the street. It’s in that one moment that this alternate Bruce picks up the gun. Fires the gun. Not only altering Bruce Wayne forever by changing that one rule that makes Batman so unique over other vigilantes. Bruce kills Joe Chill.

In this article, I review the latest Black Friday special release model from Knight Models. Check out The Grim Knight and see what he can do!

Take A Night Out with Mysterium Park

Mysterium Park Box Cover Art

I am a huge fan of games like Mysterium and Obscurio. These cooperative games of deduction by use of art provide great collaboration at the table as you try to solve for the clues that are being given to you. There’s something about the perplexed look of players as you give them cards that they don’t understand the meaning you are trying to convey or that got it moments when they realize the message.

Mysterium Park is the latest in what is an ever growing genre of these style games. In this outing, Libellud has tried to streamline the game experience for a faster and smoother game. What I find is a very successful, simplified version of the original Mysterium that fits in a smaller box and price point.

  • Players: 2-6
  • Playtime (with Setup): We find it between 30 and 90 minutes
  • Publisher: Libellud
  • Designer: Xavier Collette and M81 Studio
