How I Review Games

Before writing a full review for a game I will try to play it at least 3 times and at different player counts where possible.

I will always give my honest opinion on games and products regardless of whether I bought them myself or they were given to me.

Each game is broken down into 4 sections:

  • Gameplay
  • Aesthetics & Components
  • Rules & Teaching
  • Replayability.

These four sections are given a score out of 10, producing an overall score out of 40. This is then divided by 4 to produce an average score out of 10.

  1. Awful – defies game description
  2. Very bad – won’t play ever again
  3. Bad – likely won’t play this again
  4. Not so good – but could play again
  5. Average – slightly boring, take it or leave it
  6. Ok – will play if in the mood
  7. Good – usually willing to play
  8. Very good – enjoy playing and would suggest it
  9. Excellent – always enjoy playing it
  10. Outstanding – will always enjoy playing and expect this will never change

Review Copies

I occasionally accept review copies or products free of charge in exchange for my open and honest review. These posts will include a disclaimer, such as:

Disclaimer: This game was provided by the publisher, but my reviews are always 100% honest and all photos and opinions are my own!

If you would like me to review your game/product, please get in touch via email.

I do not accept prototype games or print & plays for reviews. Professional quality prototypes are accepted for previews, on a case by case basis.
