Casual Games

Who doesn't love rolling a handful of dice? Dice games are plentiful nowadays, and everyone should have a few good casual dice games in their game collection. We have recently evaluated three new ones, Flash!, Nada!, and Botchee. Find out below how we liked each of them.

Flash Point: Fire Rescue expansions make the original game even better. Plus: a behind-the-scenes look at the Spiel des Jahres award and a review of Hanabi, 15 things to consider when choosing games for the holidays, how the recommended age label is misleading people everywhere, and a look back at the first 40 years of Realm, a classic abstract game by a prolific designer.

Casual Games have a big presence on Kickstarter right now, almost like never before. This is our biggest crowdfunding roundup yet, packed full of some fun and exciting casual games seeking your support. Take a look!

This is our second Big Box O' Games giveaway! One lucky person will win over $100 worth of games, including a brand new copy of Bazaar, Fill the Barn, Castle Dash, and The Crow and the Pitcher. Enter below to win. Good luck!

Our crowdfunding roundup for July includes several great-looking titles (and a bit of shameless self-promotion). Oddly enough, there are no multi-million-dollar miniatures projects going on that we know of, meaning there's plenty of Kickstarter love for the more casual fare this month.

We're always on the lookout for great casual games, wherever we can find them. In May, the Parents' Choice Foundation announced their newest line-up of games receiving the award. Award levels include Gold, Silver, Recommended, Approved, and FunStuff. While the awards are primarily intended to help parents make informed decisions on the products they buy for their children, many of the games they select may be a good choice for casual gamers, as well. Here is a list of the games that caught our attention (click here for the complete list).

Here is a list of the best casual games being crowdfunded for the month of June, 2013.

It's been a long time coming, but in an effort to highlight our favorite casual games, we have now created a Recommended Games section. The list of games echoes those that are featured in each issue of Casual Game Insider, but also includes the ability to filter by game type, publisher, publication year, and MSRP, as well as sort by several options. Each game listing also includes an image, description, and basic information about the game.

Gold Mine is the tile-laying game that started it all for Stratus Games (and, by extension, Casual Game Revolution). In Gold Mine, players take on the role of miners excavating a maze of mine tunnels and secret passages in search of gold nuggets. 

What do medieval kingdoms do best? Why, acquire treasure, of course! But if you really want to make sure you have more treasure than the neighboring kingdoms, you might as well steal theirs.
