We’re board game enthusiasts here on the Die Cast…which means we’re snobs. We like our games rich, deep and complex. We like intellectually and creatively stimulating experiences.

5 Submitted by on Tue, 27 May 2014, 15:01
The Resistance is one of the best games of all time. Played in only 30 minutes, it’s a game of bluffing and lying and accusations. It’s a game of cold, hard deduction, where players work together to find the spies in their midst while those very spies attempt to hide themselves by any means possible. There is a great deal Continue Reading...

Twilight Imperium is the biggest, longest, craziest game you’ll ever play, an epic space opera that needs a banquet table to play properly.

Martin hipsters Continue Reading...
