Carcassonne Hunters and Gatherers

Components: The usual standard meeple game quality. The art isn’t the greatest and in some tile configurations it can be difficult to tell what region is being outlined.

Game Setup: The setup instructions are detailed and easy to follow.  

Game Play: Similar to regular Carcassonne, of course.

Mechanics: Tile placement and worker placement.

Summary: If you’ve played regular Carcassonne you know the drill. There are some small differences in H&G’s though and they make the experience much more strategic without adding complexity.

Last Word: Hunters and Gatherers is the best alternate version of Carcassonne if you ask us. It works specifically well as a two player game.

We answered the Call to Adventure!

Storytelling games are usually pretty hit-or-miss with not a lot falling in between those two points for most people. None of that changes with Call to Adventure. We found it to be very fun and look forward to multiple plays yet. 

Like most story telling games its lighter on strategy but there is a lot more player-directed action than most storytelling games, to the point the storytelling takes a back seat to the lighter game play.

Getting ready for the Midwest Gaming Classic

Publishers! Do we have your latest games in our collection? If not, and you’d like to have us put your game in front of thousands of faces and have it played by hungry gamers, now is the time to contact us to make the arrangements to get them to us!

The Faceless Arrives!

The Faceless arrived at the Milwaukee Company of Gamers and we got a few plays in. The manipulating magnets to affect a compass as the main mechanic is pretty nifty.

The sculpts are ultra-fantastic as well so we may be looking at getting them a pro paint job.

No wins yet as we’ve been nothing but victims of Billygoat and his sack full of little kid’s memories, but it seems its quite doable. Check it out if you’re coming to an event.

City of Kings has arrived!

City of Kinds has arrived at MilCoG headquarters and me and Verika Gamer Gal got in a handful of plays already…

Its glorious. Its everything I wanted Legends of Andor to be and more. Its certainly in the running for our game of 2019. And its likely going to make sure our Gloomhaven stays un-opened…
