Persona 3

I've never played a game from the Shin Megami Tensei series of RPGs, so when I was invited to play this by a friend I didn't know what to expect.

Persona 3 is a very interesting game, with many different elements that affect how the game plays. The moon, your friendships with people and even playing arcade games can have an affect on your stats in game!

Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition

Unusually for me, I found this game quite tricky to play. Yes, the mechanics are all sound, but the tutorial isn't the best and it wasn't until a friend and I played it together that I properly understood how the heck this game works. He recommends that anyone thinking of playing Blood Bowl watches TotalBiscuit's playthrough to get a grip on the game.

Dungeonland

This is one of many games that I've wanted to play because I watched someone online playing it- in this case, it was TotalBiscuit's playthrough of Dungeonland that made me NEED this game. And why wouldn't I?

The idea of being a Dungeon Master has always appealed to me, but I couldn't be bothered with all the intricate plot lines and different endings that can come with a self-written campaign- even if your campaign starts in a dungeon there are multiple paths your players might take. In Dungeonland, your players choose their class, weapon/spells and buffs, then they're dropped into a dungeon for you to torture.

Board Game Review: Ladies & Gentlemen.

This is an interesting little game for 4-10 players. It has many different aspects which work well together, without making the game feel like there's too much going on.

It's a nice game- both for people who play board games on a regular basis and those that shy away from the idea of board gaming. It may seem dull, but when you have a grown man begging his "husband" to buy him a pretty dress, new levels of comedy ensue.
