Andromeda’s Edge

Our first game this week is  Andromeda’s Edge, a Gamefound project from designer Luke Laurie and publisher Cardboard Alchemy.

Andromeda’s Edge – Deluxe Box on Gamefound

Andromeda’s Edge promises a mix of worker placement, engine building, area control and dice combat. Each player represents a unique alien faction with asymmetric powers.

In the game you will be sending your worker starships out to planet, moons, and nebulae to collect resources, build developments, trade, and salvage technology. Each of your ship type can be upgraded to improve it abilities including is strength in combat. As you explore the galaxy you will engage in battle with raiders other players in a dice based combat system. Starship upgrades like weapons and shields will aid you in battle. You will also build up and engine of modules that you will be able to activate when your ships return from exploration.

Andromeda’s Edge – Standard Box, on Gamefound

The components in Andromeda’s edge look stellar (if you’ll excuse the pun). There are plastic miniatures for each of the types of starships; Transport, Fighter, Science Vessel and Heavy Cruiser. The deluxe edition will feature even more miniature and custom game trays to house all the components.

If this sounds like the game for you make sure to back before the Gamefound campaign ends on February 23rd.


Next up we have F.O.R.K (Fox Owl Rabbit Kale) a family friendly food chain trick-taking game from Sunrise Tornado Studios and designer Ta-Te Wu.


F.O.R.K. is a trick-taking game where each round player will attempt to claimed score cards played by other players in the trick by playing an animal that is higher in the food chain. For example Fox cards act as a trump card and can claim Owl and Rabbit cards. Owls can claim rabbits and rabbit are content to munch on kale cards played by other players.

Blast Off With Artemis Project

I was introduced to Artemis Project by Grand Gamers Guild at Gen Con 2019. It was Saturday of the convention and my wife was taking me from booth to booth checking out those last vendors that had something we really wanted to see. I don’t know where she heard of Artemis Project, but she knew I liked games that used dice as workers in a worker placement role. Walking up to the booth, we spoke with the designer and within moments I was sold. I needed to have a copy of this game!

  • Players: 1-5
  • Playtime (with Setup): we find it around 90-150 minutes
  • Publisher: Grand Gamers Guild
  • Designer: Daryl Chow and Daniel Rocchi

Board Game Brunch: The Village Celebrates

Conesy returns this week to join me for Board Game Brunch. Seeing as it is Thanksgiving weekend, we chose to play Village and eat a thanksgiving dinner brunch.

Manage Your Park in Dinosaur World

Dinosaur World Box

When I think back to my time as a child I think of my love of dinosaurs. This has lead to my enjoyment of the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World movies as an adult. Well, Pandasaurus Games has returned to this world with one of their newest titles. Manage your dinosaur amusement park in Dinosaur World.

Yes, that’s right. In this game you will manage DNA, create dinosaurs, build attractions, and have visitors go on tours. Oh, and don’t worry about those occasional mishaps along the way. It’s all in the name of progress right?

One might ask why Pandasaurus Games chose to do another game with this theme. They already have a very popular and quite good dinosaur theme park management game with Dinosaur Island after all. Not to mention, Dinosaur Island Rawr and Write that released at the same time as Dinosaur World. Don’t worry, this game is quite different. Let’s take a look in more detail as to why in this review of Dinosaur World.

  • Players: 1-4
  • Playtime (with Setup): we find it around 90-150 minutes
  • Publisher: Pandasaurus Games
  • Designer: Kwanchai Moriya, Joe Shawcross, and Andrew Thompson
