We’re wrapping up the Denver portion of The Dark Titan Cometh Tour with a little delicious fun. We’ll be heading to Salt Lake City for our first stop there on Tuesday, February 24, at Game Haven in West Jordan, UT.
But first… we took Agranok and his pals out on a little excursion to Voodoo Doughnuts Mile High. It’s no secret Justin and Anne-Marie like food adventures and our Portland Voodoo Doughnuts video is quite popular on our YouTube Channel, so we decided to check out the Denver expansion and see if they stack up. Spoiler: the donuts are delicious!
We were rigorous in our choices of what to try and give each donut a mini-review. We then give you our favorites, and let some of the characters from The Dark Titan have their say as well! Check it out and we’ll catch back up with you all in Utah.
Back in March when we were at T.A.B.L.E., I had the chance to teach Dead Panic to J.R. Honeycutt, one of the co-hosts of the DFW Nerd Night and Brian, one of the authors for their review site The Nerd’s Table. J.R. just posted his review and summary of the game, and I think it’s a great example of the kind of experience you can have with Dead Panic.
What made this game special was that J.R. and Brian both decided to role-play their characters to a degree I hadn’t seen before. Oh sure, if you’re playing Al, the construction worker, you’ll be fixing walls, but what if you’re playing Barbara, the convict? What are your motivations? How would you act in a crisis? If you think a board game can’t handle that kind of play, you should think again. Continue reading Player vs Player in Dead Panic
In the latest issue of Rue Morgue Magazine (Issue 144), a publication dedicated to the horror genre in culture and entertainment, Dead Panic gets a trial and some really nice compliments.
Dead Panic is given a half-page review in the Play Dead feature in which Mike Beardsall talks about the mechanics of the game, comments that “strategy and communication are key…”, calls it “fast-paced and fun” and ultimately gives it 3.5 out of 5 skull & crossbones.
He found the rules a bit complicated at first, but later states, “While the rules may take several play-throughs to master, the sense of panic you feel when an army of zombie tokens closes in around you certainly makes the learning curve worthwhile.”
That cinematic feel is exactly what Justin was aiming for when he designed Dead Panic, so we call that a mark in the Win category!
You can purchase Rue Morgue Magazine Issue 144 at your local newsstand or bookstore. It’s got Godzilla on the cover! (Hint: There’s a coupon code inside for a discount on Dead Panic through our newly updated web store!)
