Best Licensed Games
The Daily Worker Placement has posted a list of their favorite officially licensed games. "Licensed games used to have a terrible reputation to them. Too often, publishers slapped a sloppy game together that didn’t do board game fans or fans of the source material any justice. The times are changing and more and more companies are valuing the intellectual properties they get the right to."

Reviews
Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle The Monster Box of Monsters (Play Board Games): “Being able to customize the game going forward is a nice touch too. It adds a bunch of replay value to the series even if this is the last expansion.”

Magic Maze (Space Biff): “When Magic Maze gets going, there is a peculiar music to it. Trying to sync everyone’s brains to the same rhythm when they’d much rather feature a mix of classical orchestra, brassy jazz, and grunge rock is what gives the game its center, and it isn’t long before the whole thing either slides into place or careens off into oblivion.”

Jaipur iOS App (Meeple Mountain): “Asmodee has offered some great enhancements to an already great game. If digital versions of board games are your jam, or if you just want a great app, the Jaipur iOS app is for you.”
