Longtime visitors have probably come to a conclusion about two sorts of games I’m not especially fond of: run of the mill party games and titles which are just a retheme (or reskin) of more traditional card games...
I recall years ago, back when Gen Con was held in Milwaukee, I found myself involved in a tournament featuring a home brewed Formula One style racing game. Funny enough I didn’t have much interest in auto racing, or even games of that style even though I owned Avalon Hill’s Indy 500

We learn plenty about King of New York, Zombie 15', Night of the Grand Octopus and more Iello titles at this year's Gen Con, as Matthieu Bonin and Christian Lemay (of Le Scorpion masqué) take us through the paces.
Ninja Dice is one of those quick playing titles you can pop out on those nights when you’re waiting for the rest of your gaming gang to show up or maybe as something to cap off an evening filled with heavier fare.

Victory Point Games is getting ready to release a bigger and better edition of their card game Tenka (check out Chris' review of the second edition right here) and the company has revealed some additional details regarding the Shogun Edition.
Fish Stix is a fun game which everyone can enjoy. Simple enough that kids who can't yet read can play and entertaining enough for adults. Object of the game is to advance all six different fish along your scoreboard 10 points. For this to happen you'll be placing fish sticks on the “game board” to form schools of fish. For each group of fish you match - color and direction - your score is advanced that many points.
