Jim Henson’s The Labyrinth Board Game

Well I must have been living under a rock, because my friend sent me a link last night to Jim Henson’s: The Labyrinth Board Game.

I’m a bit wary to have too many ‘movie’ board games on my wish list but I mean this is ridiculous, who doesn’t love Labyrinth? (apart from my boyfriend- typical!) I still remember when my Dad rented it from ‘the video shop’ for me and my siblings and I thought it was the best thing ever. Me and my sister who are both in our 30’s still quote the movie on a regular basis. I just love it.

This was announced last Summer, I can only put it down to my post pregnancy games hiatus that I missed so much games news in those few months.

It’s due to be released this year, again i’m not too sure if that will pan out, I hope so! It looks gorgeous; dice, miniatures, cards, beautiful board. There’s not too much information on the actual game play yet as far as I know, i’m assuming part dungeon crawler which admittedly isn’t my favourite genre, but hell, for Labyrinth I’ll get involved.

Zombicide, Raphaël Guiton Jean-Baptiste Lullien Nicolas Raoult

Winter 2014….

I could of really liked Zombicide. If I hadn’t died after 3 turns. To me that’s crazy, in a potentially very long game why have instant player elimination? At least have wound points or something. I know it’s thematic, like if you get fucked up by zombies you die, but in my first few turns before imminent death I felt like I couldn’t do MUCH, and then spent 90 mins watching the remaining players drive around killing things. Maybe I need another try at this but I wasn’t too fussed. It’s an attractive game, I love the pieces and the idea, but I wasn’t blown away.
