Twilight Imperium 4th Edition – How to play with only 2 players

by Matt Gearyon 06/03/2020
TI4  is a 3+ player game, therefore if you only have two people you are pretty scuppered and your options are: don’t play; use one of the internet’s homebrews, which knocks out phases and adds restrictions ORRRRRR you could do what we did and play the 3rd player between us. Now this sounds strange but […]

Twilight Imperium 4th Edition- Review

by Matt Gearyon 06/03/2020
All in all, TI4 is a great game (though not the cheapest), balanced, not overly complex, quicker than you might think and with so much replayability. If you are the long hall war gaming type then you'll need to go into it understanding that it isn’t really a wargame, despite its look, it’s a game of diplomacy and threat… with the ability to war it out, if you must.

This is nothing new for Tech companies in general but where this patent seems to differ somewhat and could potentially be revolutionary to gaming is its algorithms that learn when you are struggling to defeat a part of the game or Boss and then offer you the option to buy a piece of armour, or a weapon , for a reasonable price, to progress past the point you are having issue with.

REVIEW : Back to the Future – The Musical

by redshirtjamieon 21/02/2020
Let’s just get this out of the way. Nobody likes reboots. Nobody likes remakes, prequels or re-imaginings. Over the last decade we’ve seen films be pressed through the shiny Hollywood machine, only to tumble out the end capturing absolutely none of the original joy or spark of the source material. Every few years a rumour […]

by joshkingofgeekson 18/02/2020
Not a film without its faults but one that passes the baton of nostalgia from one generation to another with the help of people power and a studio that listened for once; Bravo Paramount, Bravo.  A great watch for the whole family.
