Small World Board Game   (View Game)
   Bern Harkins

An area control game with no player elimination... hurrah! Quick playing, entertaining, good quality components... but you may need sunglasses or other eye protection until you get used to the BRIGHTLY colored board...

Dominion: Intrigue   (View Game)
   Bern Harkins
This amazing little game has many virtues, among them versatility. The simple, intuitive rules become familiar to even a non gamer halfway through the first game, and games are short, making it a great "hook" game. It's clear enough for reasonably bright children. The strategy and the feel of the game change with every new combination of starting cards, giving it terrific replay value, and the short duration makes it fit into gaming schedules very well. It can be played by two to four players, more with the Intrigue standalone expansion, so it's perfect for waiting for late arrivals, or an end of the night quicky, but it still stands ready to do service as a main selection; you can play six games in a row without things getting stale. It's a simple card game, but it's a different simple card game every time. Great value for your gaming dollar. I recommend starting with Dominion : Intrigue, and adding the original game as an expansion to it. You'll want both, though.

Talisman (4th Edition)   (View Game)
   Bern Harkins
This retool of the classic boardgame has much to commend it. The components are inferior to the third edition, the characters are less well thought out and balanced, but the return of the second edition midboard and endgame give the game back its desperate finish. If you have third edition, it will probably not replace it at your table, but it is a worthy game in its own right.

Race For The Galaxy   (View Game)
   Bern Harkins
A favorite at our gaming table, this quick, flexible empire building game is perfect for starting the evening, while waiting for late arrivals, or for late night/early morning "OK, I'll play one more quick one..." selections. Play is fairly confusing the first game or two, but once players realize that they must continually tear out their own hearts and murder their precious plans to succeed, the game seduces you with its strategic complexity and edge-of-your-seat finish. It always seems to tend one turn before you are ready...

Iron Dragon   (View Game)
   Bern Harkins
A fantasy re-implement of Mayfair's popular Empire Builder series, this Thom Wham/Darwin Bromely design adds many elements to the basic system. Players build rail in the Underworld, load their trains aboard ships for sea transport, and are aided by Foremen with a variety of special powers. The variety of locomotives is greater, with higher speeds, but essentially this game plays like Empire Builder with a lot of entertaining bells and whistles.
