Hello everyone! Thank you so much for visiting board of playing! As you can see, with my last post being in 2015, I am no longer updating this site. I have moved on to designing board games as opposed to reviewing them! If you would like to follow my designs, please visit! I will [...]

I’m still trying to get over the fact that I went to Essen this year. The only problem is, now that i’ve been, I kinda want to go every year… (wishful thinking). Here is my comprehensive overview of what I experienced, starting with some video of the 3 different jam-packed halls of the convention center, [...]

2 big news items : 1.) I’m back from my hiatus. I got ‘board’* of writing reviews. But I love talking about games… i’m not entirely sure why I didn’t think of this sooner, but my blog is now a vlog. Those of you who enjoyed reading my reviews, I thank you for reading them. [...]

I attended Dice Tower Con in Orlando Florida last weekend July 3-7th. Whether you attended, wanted to attend but couldn’t, or didn’t know it existed, here’s the low down on my first time attending the convention.

However, unlike Mirror, Mirror, it’s a card game. The deck has 16 cards, each with a card value and you are trying to knock other players [...]

In Alphabetical Order. Agricola : All Creatures Big and Small More Buildings Big and Small - The expansion to the base 2-player Uwe Rosenberg Agricola game. I had the  opportunity to check out the expansion at BGG’s extensive board game library and I really, really, liked it, so much in fact that I dedicated a whole review to [...]

Googley Eyes not included. Agricola’s designer, Uwe Rosenberg’s, ubiquitous influence in the board gaming world seems to become more and more valid with each game that has his name printed on the box cover. I think BOP can safely say he’s one of the few true superstars when it comes to designers and undoubtably one of our favorites here on BOP.
