The Cauldron Adrift - Drift hero deck
by Jeff P.
Publisher: Matthew Bishop
Date Added: 02/04/2019 20:57:06
The Cauldron Adrift - Drift hero deck **Drift Review:** Once again, Matt Bishop and Cauldron deliver a unique playstyle for these fan-created heroes. Drift, a character previously seen in the Knight’s deck and promo cards, has time traveling powers, represented by a separate card, called a “Shift Track” in which you track her place/alignment in regards to the past or the future. Many of this hero’s cards have unique abilities that either trigger when she “shifts” in a certain direction, or have powers that differ based on her placement on the track. For example, if Drift is aligned with the past (marked as blue on the track,) she can only use powers marked with a blue diamond. Past-aligned powers tend towards healing, defense, and drawing cards, while future-aligned powers tend almost exclusively to damage dealing or buffing. The deck also has a number of various limited ongoing cards that help her get more mileage out of her time shifts, as well as cards to help you mine your deck a bit for what's missing. Her play sty...

The Cauldron - Quicksilver hero deck
by Jeff P.
Publisher: Matthew Bishop
Date Added: 02/04/2019 20:38:35
The Cauldron - Quicksilver hero deck **Quicksilver Review:** After a few games with this character, I’ve really enjoyed the mechanic that makes her unique. Quicksilver plays the role of a high damaging hero who injures herself in order to string together “combo” and “finisher” one-shot cards to deal high amounts of damage to both multiple and individual targets. Obviously, a requirement get the most bang for your buck is getting lots of cards in hand to allow chaining and her base power, “Discard a card. If you do, draw 2 cards,” helps with this. She also has a number of ongoing cards that allow her to mitigate self-damaging behavior and even one that take damage done by her peers, increase it, and sent it back to a villain. Her play style requires hording cards, damaging/healing yourself, followed by episodes of explosive damage dealing. In summary, she’s a unique hero, and a great addition to the multiverse! **General Cauldron Review:** I came late to the Cauldron fan-expansion, but once I found it I picked up all o...

Night Witches This is the closest to an HBO show that I've experienced in an RPG, and it's been close before. My group are on a break from it just because our emotional stamina can only take so much, but we can't wait to get back into it.

The GameMaster's Apprentice: Sci Fi
by Darrell C.
Publisher: Larcenous Designs, LLC
Date Added: 01/16/2019 10:33:11
The GameMaster's Apprentice: Sci Fi This is exactly what I was looking for in order to play Classic Traveller/Cepheus Engine solitaire. I purchased the printed cards as well as the pdf. The printed cards are printed just like playing cards, and the print quality is excellent. Each card is double-sided and easy to read. The color scheme used for the SciFi cards works well for me. The included SciFi Adventure Guide is also very helpful with ideas on how to use the various elements of the card. The examples included in the adventure guide work well on their own, but can be easily modified to fit your needs. The pdf quality is also good; however, I did not want to print and cut out the cards. Self-printing can be done if a person does not want to purchase the printed cards, but I prefer commercially printed cards to doing it myself on cardstock. I'm using the SciFi cards in conjunction with Paul Elliott's SOLO for Cepheus Engine. The combination of the cards with Paul Elliott's SOLO has created an exceptional experien...

HEAT: The Space Age of Pro Wrestling Card Game - Prison Pro Wrestling Core Set AS A LOVER OF WRESTLER, THIS GAME GOT MY ATTENTION. PLAYED IT AND WAS A LITTLE CONFUSED AT FIRST BY SOME OF THE WORDING IN THE RULES. AFTER A FEW TRYS THOUGH I FIGURED IT OUT. NOT A BAD GAME, BUT NOT A GREAT ONE EITHER. FOUND THE GAME TO BE FUN AND THE ARTWORK IS GREAT, BUT AFTER PLAYING A FEW TIMES WE FOUND THE GAME TO BE VERY SIMPLE AND EASY TO WIN. GREAT GAME FOR A FAMILY WITH YOUNG BOYS AS THEY WILL LOVE IT! FOR US THOUGH, WE FOUND IT TO BE FUN BUT NOT A GAME TO BE PLAYED REGULARLY. MORE LIKE ONCE AND A WHILE. ...

Dungeon Solitaire: Labyrinth of Souls - Tarot Deck

Dungeon Solitaire: Labyrinth of Souls - Tarot Deck The deck is beautiful and feels nice in the hands. It's the perfect deck to accompy the book Dugeon Solitaire: Labryinth of Souls. When coupled with the book, you have tons of ways to enjoy and play this game! So far, I've played Dugeon Solitaire: Tomb of the Four Kings (Basic Game). Labryinth of Souls (Both Expert and Advanced), The Cartomancy varaition which I found to be amazing! So amazing in fact that it rekindled my love of tarot cards that I had in my youth. I'm glad I still kept all my old books on the subject! Lastly, I am currently playing Campaign Mode in Labryinth of Souls, which in my humble opinion is worth the price of the book and deck combined! My character's name is David the Hop and just upgraded from the Rank of a Fool to a Robber. He also choose to become a Ranger, which will come in handy for those pesky mazes! Each delve that I've done so far is very tense as it should be! I can't say enough good about this game! The future of David the ...

Situation Aspect Cards (for Fate)
by Jim B.
Publisher: Nothing Ventured Games
Date Added: 11/29/2018 14:12:47
Situation Aspect Cards (for Fate) I was a little disappointed in the cards, but maybe that's a matter of mismatched expectations. I was hoping it would be a rich set of situation aspects usable in a variety of settings. Instead, it seems more like a sampler pack - possibly useful as inspiration for creating your own. There are 10 cards for environmental conditions. Most of them cover a scattered handful of specific weather conditions. I'd have used one card for weather, say, "Severe Weather," letting you adapt it to your setting. The other environmental cards offer a small sampling of environmental conditions. Again, they were a little over-specific. For example, instead of having two cards for different ways to have poor visibility, I'd have gone with "Poor Visibility" as one card, leaving you to adapt it for your setting. Your campaign probably has a lot of variety in your locations, but the environmental condition cards would be applicable to only a small subset of them. A better mix, if I had to squeeze a broadl...

Winterhorn
by Michael B.
Publisher: Bully Pulpit Games
Date Added: 11/22/2018 16:31:58
Winterhorn *Winterhorn* is an incredible game that does for LARPs what* Papers Please *did for videogames, making the banality of evil in authoritarian regimes real. You are an interagency working group in an unnamed country loosely based on East Germany (but even western democracies have secret police, the FBI ran COINTELPRO for decades, and in 2003 a British undercover agent had a child with an activist before disappearing.) Your target is Winterhorn, an activist group composed of seven core members with ideals, desires, and weaknesses laid out in the briefing material. Additionally, you have a role as a secret police agent, with a past and an agenda of your own. Over three rounds of thirty minutes each, your secret police squad will select seven options from deck of twelve secret police tactics, ranging in violence from hands-off wiretapping to sending 'patriotic' thugs (off-duty cops) to assault members of Winterhorn. You can also be tricky, setting up front groups to siphon away recrui...

double Decktet
by Daniel R.
Publisher: P.D. Magnus
Date Added: 11/16/2018 15:12:49
double Decktet My favorite game system by a mile. I love the structure of the deck, the double suited cards as well as the assymetrical distribution makes for a very unique set of cards. This makes for some very interesting trick taking games but it also works well for area control, it opens up a lot of possibilities. The art work is phenomenal in both decks although I prefer the Capital Deck. I do find myself distracted at times during games looking at the art work, spotting curious little details in the scenes. The Decktet book is a great add on to the decks if you are drawn to the system, it has a lot of information on the deck itself and rules for tons of games. There are a number of good games for the Decktet, some of the more notable ones are Magnate, Jacynth, Emissary, Emu Ranchers. Personal favorites (besides the above) are Adaman, Double Knot and Goblin Market. And there are loads more that I haven't even tried yet!...

double Decktet I’m so impressed how the whole thing hangs together. The art reflects the suits and hints at a story behind the suit mechanisms. There are tools here for designing your own game, story telling elements for RPGs and several fully formed games beyond the expected trick-taking plays.
