New Reviews This Week
Star Trek Panic (Ars Technica): “But when you send four security teams to repel the Romulan boarding parties, play "The Corbomite Maneuver" card to remove Kang's ship, and limp your way back to a starbase with four of your six hull sections on fire, you'll feel a bit like Kirk, Spock, and the gang executing another of their improbable escapes."

Saloon Tycoon (Paste Magazine): “There’s plenty of replay value because of the huge variety of room tiles and cards—with even more value coming from the Boomtown expansions, which bring a bunch of new tiles and claims as well as two new Citizens to the game."

Dastardly Dirigibles (Internet vs Wallet): “It is a great game for some light family fun. We found ourselves coming back to this one often."
