Avis : Pros: They did an excellent job of filling the campaign deck with plenty of fun surprises. I like the way that the suspect forces you to work together to figure out ways to limit the negative effects he has on the game. The bonus trade action also helps to encourage teamwork. This is a campaign game with a lot of replayability since you'll face different obstacles every time you play. Surprisingly tells a good story, especially if the players can be creative in describing their actions. This isn't an extremely light game, but gamers of all ages should be able to figure out how to play after a couple of rounds. Cons: The theme doesn't come through as well when you think of the game as a color-matching game, which it can feel like at times. You can definitely run into alpha player problems in Spy Club since all of the information is out there for everyone to see. On the overall, Spy Club is a wonderful family game with a very cool campaign deck to go through. I'd even recommend it to experienced gamers who enjoy set collection games. My group still loves it after playing through six campaigns.
Avis : Pros: Challenging adventures. A lot of ways to cooperate through card play. Very intuitive rules so it's simple to teach. Easy to customize your character through deck building. You can use the cards you buy right away rather than having to put them in your discard pile. Well-written adventures keep you in the story throughout. Plenty of new content to add to the game if you end up enjoying it. Cons: Tutorial doesn't work well with fewer players. Some players might have a hard time choosing ability stickers for their characters initially. The clips on the character sheets are tough to move around and they stick out. On the overall, Dragonfire is a very good deck builder with a smooth campaign system. If you enjoyed Shadowrun: Crossfire, chances are you will be a huge fan of this game. I actually like more because it's a bit more forgiving yet every adventure is still challenging.
Chronicles of Crime
Avis : Pros: Promotes teamwork; you have to work together when searching for clues and figuring our where to go next. It's great that you have complete freedom to handle the case as you want to. Most of the cases are very challenging. There's a nice amount of variety in the types of cases you get. The app works great. Very easy to learn how to play, even for non-gamers Cons: Some people might not like that they have to use the app throughout the game. This setting has been used in multiple other detective games. Some groups might not like that they can't get hints in the app. This is a game that every murder-mystery fan should own. The cases are interesting, it's a unique experience thanks to the excellent app, and it does a great job of making you feel like real detectives.
Thanos Rising - Avengers: Infinity War
Avis : Pros: There are some interesting decisions to make, especially when you have to decide between multiple sectors to go to on your turn. The bonus tokens were a great addition for dice mitigation. Even younger kids can learn how to play this game pretty easily. Putting together your team of heroes is a lot of fun, especially when they synergize. All of the major characters from the movie are in the game. That Thanos figure is pretty awesome. Cons: I wish that all of the heroes had a distinctive feel. For the most part, they all have simple unthematic abilities. There is a very high amount of randomness in this game. Some games can run a bit long, which you never want in games with a heavy amount of dice rolling. No information is hidden, so you could have alpha player problems. I would recommend Thanos Rising to people who are looking for a family game to play with kids who are fans of the Marvel universe. However, I would not recommend it to adult groups since there are quite a few other thematic dice rolling co-ops that are better than this, such as Batman: The Animated Series – Gotham City Under Siege, Hotshots, and Elder Sign.
Detective: A Modern Crime Board
Avis : Pros: Does a great job of making players feel like detectives. All of the cases were written well. You can tell a lot of work went into them. Limited resources force you to make tough decisions. The game's website is fantastic. Easy to set up, allowing to get right into the game. Simple rules means it's very easy to learn how to play. Cons: I don't like that every case comes down to answering multiple choice questions. The cases can be very long, and they can feel long. A lot of filler text on some cards. Detective definitely does make players feel like detectives. It's certainly not my favorite detective game - Sherlock Holmes and Deadline are better, in my opinion - but it is quite a bit different than other games in the genre. If you like the idea of trying to solve interesting cases by using a very cool online database and team deductive skills, definitely check this one out.
Tiny Epic Zombies
Avis : Pros: Plenty of cool moments in this game, including the times when you kill 4+ zombies in a single turn. The meeples look great with those items attached to them. Four fun game modes. The different combinations of objectives make each game play out differently. Quick game yet feels like a full experience. Plenty of replay value. Cons: Playing as the zombie player can feel a bit repetitive, but it is fun and challenging for the human players. The larger cards in the game (mall and character cards) are a bit flimsy. Some of the text is small and hard to read. I'm not a fan of the zombie theme, but I do think the designer deserves credit for making a game with four legitimately good game modes. If you do like this theme, this is a must buy.
