Why the Rubric? Part I

In the youtube comments we have had a fair few people voice the question; why do Sean and I use the rubrics we do and how did we come up with them. As it has also been noted in comments; Sean and I have different scoring rubrics; and I would argue so does pretty much everyone else who plays games, even if on a subconscious level.  Even if we had the same categories we would look at them differently as no two gamers are exactly alike.  Many of you have been asking why our rubrics are designed as they are and how we interpret them as we run a game through the scores; so here is my reasoning behind my rubric; part 1  Visuals, Skill/Luck and Pacing with part 2 soon to follow.

First off;...

BANG! The Dice Game (7/10) a written review

Anyone who has watched half of our reviews knows there is one mechanic that Sean and I both look down upon greatly; a mechanic that, though often despised, is shockingly prominent in many games. There are very few games I can say I genuinely enjoy that feature this mechanic and yet I find myself often playing these games thinking I can out play the mechanic. Player Elimination. I have played a fair amount of games with player elimination and honestly if you ask a casual gamer (one not familiar with the extended hobby) what their favorite games are chances are they will name at least one game featuring the player elimination mechanic. Monopoly, Risk, Axis and Allies, Mafia/Werewolf; all games that my non-hobby gamer friends are familiar with and often enjoy. Confession: I do enjoy some games...

Stardraft by the Silver Bull Games (4.0/10)

I was recently able to sit down and play 'Stardraft' a game by the Silver Bull Games (Link). It is a game for 2-16 players and takes less than 15 minutes to play. Bottom Line Up Front:

Pros:  Simplicity, Many Players, Quick to play Cons: Rock-Paper-Scissors Mechanic, Too simple / Needs more mechanics, Player Elimination, Broken 'Pass mechanic'

Story: You are a star fighter set in some future time when everyone has a starship battle cruiser. And guess what? It's a dog fight to the bitter end! Components: 16 cards. 1 box. Oxygen with trace amounts of Nitrogen. End of list. Dust. Hopes. Dreams. Fairy Dust. Gameplay: The deck is shuffled. Each player is dealt 1 card. Players place their cards out in front of them for all to see. There are 16 different cards, but really only 2 different types...

The Advertising Game By Mongo Industries (3.5/10)

The Advertising Game by Mongo Industries ( is a game for 2 to 4 players and takes less than 30 minutes to play. The premise of the game is fairly simple. Story: You are an employee of an advertising agency seeking to get that killer idea. By playing cards you eliminate your competition. The last advertising employee left standing, wins. Now before I get too far, I want to specify that this game is pretty much a direct clone of Love Letter. As I have reviewed Love Letter previously (View Love Letter Review Here), I'm going to give the same review here with my edits shown, so you can see what is different. Components: 16 cards. 1 box. Oxygen with trace amounts of Nitrogen. End of list. Gameplay: The deck is shuffled. Each player is dealt 1 card. 1...

Love Letter by 999 Games (5.0/10)

Love Letter is a game for 2-4 players and takes about 20 minutes to play. However, I will say that once you get the hang of it, the duration of the entire game should take less than 5 minutes. Story: All of the eligible men seek to woo the princess of Tempest. Unfortunately, she has locked herself in the palace, and you must rely on others to take your romantic letters to her. Will yours reach her first? Love Letter is a game of risk, deduction, and luck. Your goal is to get your love letter into the Princess' hands while deflecting the letters from competing suitors. Components: 16 cards. 1 box. Oxygen with trace amounts of Nitrogen. End of list. Gameplay: The deck is shuffled. Each player is dealt 1 card. 1 card is removed from play....

A Change to Reviews

Hello all and welcome back! The Gamers Remorse has gotten a fair number of fans and game designers asking us to review their games! In an effort to better serve everyone, we have decided to pre-play some of the games to determine their applicability to a video review. This has been a long standing concern of ours and we have talked a lot about the best way to handle it. Sometimes we will get a game to review that isn't quite there in quality and appeal. We will film the review then spend 20+ hours editing the content to make sure it is up to our quality standards. Then we will post the review. As the review is less than optimal, few people watch it, as the game designer doesn't want to advertise that it got...
