Behind every great robot take over of humanity is an evil scientist. And, today, that’s no different. Fairway prepares for the inevitable robot takeover by pretending to be the evil scientist in today’s review of Robot Rise!
Fairway boldly goes where a whole bunch of other people have already gone. However, since AEG recently released a mass produced version of The Captain is Dead, Fairway thought he’d take the time and review The Captain is Dead: TOPOD version. That is “The Original Print on Demand” version he picked up from The Game Crafter.
Fairway isn’t sure of his identity. In today’s review, Fairway takes a look at Galaxy Rise a trick-taking and hidden identity game with a sci-fi theme. See if he finds himself.
Today, Fairway takes command of an elite squadron of mercenaries and soldiers in a dystopian future where a mining corporation “accidentally” destroyed the planet. Find out whether he can destroy the restless population or whether he’ll totally lose control in this review of Battle for Sularia and its expansion Blood, Profit and Glory.
It would be his luck to live long enough to see man conquer interstallar space… only to be stuck on the worst ship in the Universe. Today, Fairway picks up the cooperative game Eriath: The Worst Ship in the Universe. See if Fairway and friends are able to keep this hunk of junk spaceworthy or whether his space adventures are doomed.
I’m not sure if it has more to do with science or the stunning crimson vistas, but lately it seems like everyone is packing their bags for Mars. The red planet has been a beacon for human imagination for years, from Robert Heinlein’s The Green Hills of Earth to NASA’s push to the stars. Novelist Andy Weir stranded us on Mars in 2011, an adventure echoed four years later in Ridley Scott’s big screen adaptation of The Martian. Now game designer Jacob Fryxelius has set his sights on the planet as well, asking players to spend a couple hours bringing life and sustainability to the fourth rock from the Sun.
Fairway has a long history with playing 4X games. 4X means “explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate.” And with the release of Civilization VI, it only seems fitting to preview than Button Shy’s upcoming wallet game: Universal Rule. It’s a space-themed, 4X game in 18 cards.
