Excited to Unbox and Review the Diamond in the Sand: Tekhenu: Obelisk of the Sun

Tekhenu: Obelisk of the Sun

When I originally saw Tekhenu: Obelisk of the Sun I felt this game was a gimmick and didn’t think there was a game here. It went on sale, and as a surprise, my wife bought it and gave it to me after a bad day of work. That’s definitely a way to brighten one’s day!

Little did I realize how delighted I would be. Tekhenu is a brilliant game with so many decisions with not nearly enough rounds to do them in.

If you like ancient Egypt or like using dice to power the action you are taking each round than this game is likely for you. It’s time for the Tekhenu Unboxing and Review!

Conesy’s Diary: Episode 36 Black Angel the Game

Black Angel the Board Game

My wife and I recently sat down and played Black Angel from Pearl Games. While playing it I was reminded of how exited I was for this game release coming out of Gen Con 2019. A couple of months later when it was in my hands it hit the table several times. Now, a year later, it’s back on the table and the joy is still there.

Check out this first for the Diary as I do a quick review of the game Black Angel!

Hyped Up to Unbox Viscounts of the West Kingdom

Viscounts of the West Kingdom

My wife recently placed an order online for a few games and Viscounts of the West Kingdom needed to be one of the games.

This game made it into our The Best New Board Game Releases for your 2020 Holiday Shopping list for many reasons. Since we love the other two “West Kingdom” games so much, this was a no brainer to add to our order.

We have been anxiously anticipating the third game in this series. Since it was ordered we watched the tracking impatiently, frothing at how excited we are to try this game. When it finally arrived we immediately pulled it out of the box and dashed to the game table.

We’re Excited for PlanB Games Century: A New World

Century: A New World

Recently, I have been playing a number of two player games and among my wife’s favorite games are the Century series. Each game uses similar resources, iconography, and easy to understand rules to make unique game experiences.

In Century: A New world, the third of the series, we find a great worker placement game that’s equal parts light and complex. This interesting combination of simple rules with difficult decisions which is the hall mark of any great game.

We’ll take a look at the game play, components, and theme of this game.

Going Crazy Unboxing Paladins of the West Kingdom

Paladins of the West Kingdom
Game Box

Every year my friends organize a gaming weekend we call Cabincon. We all chip in to rent a rural Wisconsin house and bring enough alcohol, food, and board games to last us usually about a month. The event is a blast! One of the best parts is all of the exposure to everyone else’s favorite games!

At our 2019 event I was introduced to Architects of the West Kingdom which is a brilliant worker placement game. I had to immediately pick it up at my local game store and get it to the table at home. Not much time after did I realize that Renegade Game Studios was producing a trilogy of these “West Kingdom” games and that it was all ready released. Recently I was able to head to the store and pick up my copy.
