Meeples & Miniatures Episode 3
Neil reviews three Reiner Knizia games: Poison, Mmm Brains and Tigris & Euphrates. The reviews are standard, high-quality fare: descriptions of the components and how the games look, a review of the mechanics, how much Neil enjoyed them, who might enjoy them, what the best number of players to play the game is and if they feel like value for money. This seems to be the template for most of Neil's reviews. The reviews of the simpler games are so detailed you could almost design a similar game yourself on the basis of Neil's description.
On the strength of this review, I'm actually thinking about buying Poison (for the chidren) and Tigris & Euphrates, so Neil was doing something right! Definitely worth a listen if you are thinking of playing or buying any of these games.
Heretical Gaming is my blog about my gaming life, featuring small skirmishes and big battles from many historical periods (and some in the mythic past or the far future too). The focus is on battle reports using a wide variety of rules, with the occasional rules review, book review and odd musing about the gaming and history. Most of the battles use 6mm-sized figures and vehicles, but occasionally 15mm and 28mm figures appear too.
