Game Reviews by BoardGameGeek Reviewer EndersGame

Want to know what components you get with a game? What to know what a game looks like? What to know how it works? Want to learn the basic rules and flow of play?

In these reviews, I take a pictorial approach, by taking photographs of key components and gameplay, and organizing them with accompanying text in order to teach you how to play a game. In addition to showcasing what a game looks like and what it is all about, I also provide my analysis of the game. These reviews can help readers make an informed decision before purchasing a game, or could help fellow-gamers get a basic sense of how to play a game before a session.

This list is arranged alphabetically. To see my most recent reviews, click here.

In addition to reviews of games, I also write detailed pictorial reviews of playing cards, which I post on a separate list here.

If you are a game designer or publisher and would like me to consider your game for review, feel free to send me an expression of interest by GeekMail, or via email. Generally speaking I am only willing to commit the time to writing a review for games that I am personally enthusiastic about and consider to be worthwhile recommending to other gamers, so please contact me directly to help determine whether your game would be a suitable candidate for one of my reviews.

This series of four fun fillers from Friedemann Friese all feature his innovative "fable" concept, in which you learn the game as you play, and the game rules evolve over time, "legacy" style. Here are direct links to the reviews I've written about each game in the series:

Fast Forward #1: FEAR - What Fluxx might have been if it was made by Friedemann Friese

Fast Forward #2: FORTRESS - Another fine entry in Friedemann Friese's series of fabulously fun fable games

Fast Forward #3: FLEE - A cooperative Escape-Room type puzzle, and the most challenging Fast Forward game yet

Fast Forward #4: FORTUNE - A fourth great title joins the series of Fast Forward games
