As a contributor and fan of the On Board Games podcast, I thought it might be nice to keep a list of all the boardgames that have been reviewed on the podcast. So here they are, if you want more details and to find out why certain games received the ratings they did check out the podcast at www.onboardgames.net

The primary hosts/reviewers on the podcast are Donald Dennis, Scott Nicholson & Erik Dewey. The additional regular contributors are Giles Pritchard and Me. You'll also notice some family and friends jump in for occasional input on some of the reviews.

[b]Here at On Board Games we use a stoplight-based review system to help you determine what games you want to buy:

If we give something a Green Light that means we really like the game and you should go right ahead and grab it.

If we give it a Yellow Light that means that there's some issues with the game. It's almost a great game, or if you like the theme you might get more out of it than other people. But it's not a game we'll pull out everytime we sit down to play.

And if we give a game a Red Light it means that there's a critical flaw in the game, where the basic gameplay itself might have a significant problem.

Revised to Yellow Light. This game is a fun and silly experience, but you have to play with a group that wants to giggle and have fun. It is a solid party game, especially for young people and families, but compared to many others I would have to set this one in the yellow light area now.
