Up here in Average Gamer Towers (that’s totally a thing and not something we just made up to make ourselves sound more grandiose than we actually are…) we love a good tabletop game. Fully 50% of our team are MASSIVE Star Wars fans, and so it stands to reason that the first big review we put on our humble little blog is for a game set in the Star Wars universe.
Join us, if you will, in casting your mind back through the mists of time to the the distant past of 2012, where a little company by the name of Fantasy Flight Games released a game that would become one of the biggest selling tabletop games of all time; Merchant of Venus second edition!
Oh, and they also brought out something called Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game.
Our ninth episode has arrived! Like Christmas come early, we’ve, er, come early to talk to you about our tabletop game wishlists for Christmas this year, as well as talking about the merits of painting your boardgame miniatures!

Here we are with our eighth episode! On this episode we discuss Lee’s return to the Warhammer 40,000 universe with Kill Team from Games Workshop. We also talk about him crawling through space-dungeons with Star Saga from Mantic Games. The guys have played Aristeia from Corvus Belli, this time with the Smoke and Mirrors expansion kindly provided to us by Corvus Belli! To round off our ‘what we’ve been playing’ section, we talk we give a brief overview of our first playthrough of Deep Madness as well – without spoiling too much, it was very good!
For the main section of the show, we discuss our second play through of Twilight Imperium 4th edition from Fantasy Flight Games and our fantasy role-playing game we’ve been playing using the Genesys Role Playing system, also from Fantasy Flight Games.
Lee also mentions the world that the RPG is set in – it’s a bit too long for these show-notes, so they’ll get added in a new blog post soon!
Feast your Ear-holes!

We’re back with a new setup and a new episode! It’s been a bit of a gap since Episode 6, but plans have been afoot behind the scenes, we’re certainly not going anywhere just yet! One place we have been, however, is Vigo in Spain, where Adam took part in the Interplanetary Tournament for Infinity the game!
We’re planning to be much more active here on the blog as well as on our social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) as well as right here on this little blog of ours in future!
Howdy everyone! We’re back with another episode! This particular episode is slightly different to our usual format (not that we really have much of one to begin with!), in that we’re going to look at some of the better games to get started with – whether that’s because you’re just starting out in the world of tabletop gaming, or maybe you have some friends that you’d like to introduce to the hobby. Because the hobby is so wide-ranging (from card games, board games, roleplaying games, tabletop wargames and all sorts of things in between), we’re breaking it down across several episodes. In this first part of our series, we look at games for people just starting out in the world of board games!
The games discussed in this episode are:
Epic Spell Wars: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/112686/epic-spell-wars-battle-wizards-duel-mt-skullzfyre
Exploding Kittens: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/172225/exploding-kittens

Look out for our next part in the series, where we discuss tabletop wargames, roleplaying games, and party games! (yes, we discussed ‘party games’ in this episode too, but next time we’ll talking about the bigger games that don’t use a board)
In our post-UK Games Expo comedown, we talk about the things we saw and the games we played at the 2018 UK Games Expo! We had such a great time, we can’t wait to go next year and talk to even more developers and publishers!
