Dinosaur Island by Pandasaurus Games Review

"We were so busy thinking about if we could, we didn't bother to think about if we should." We posted this on Twitter and Instagram the other day. It is a quote from a movie you may have heard of, Jurassic Park. Dinosaur Island is a clone of the movie in a board game format. The entire game is tongue in cheek, and you should be ready for a healthy/heavy dose of nostalgia. If you have not played a Jurassic Park board game, it is because until recently, such a game didn't exist.

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency: Everything is Connected by IDW Games Review

To properly review the Dirk Gently board game, you must have a bit of history. Douglas Adams was the artist (it was art, therefore I haven't called him a writer), behind The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, a trilogy of books that took ten books to write properly. He was the king of dry humor, and that also spilled over into his book, Dirk Gently and the Holistic Detective Agency, now a TV show on BBC.
