Lazer Ryderz

2017 Philly Geek Awards - Game of the Year Nominee

"Dave: Man, who gives a crap about how this game is played – look at that packaging! A Tron-like sci-fi game from out of what looks like-shelf worn VHS box set? Hell yeah! Thankfully, after you’ve spent hours dazzled by the game box and its components, getting to the rules proves pretty damn rewarding too! You’re riding your lazer bike around, leaving a trail of lethal lazer behind you and collecting power prizms for points and glory! With a similar move mechanic to Fantasy Flight’s X-Wing Miniatures Game, it seems quick to pick up on and play. Let’s go Lazer Ryding, boyz!

Kris: Excellent over-the-top 80s art direction and refreshingly straightforward game mechanics make for a perfect match here. As Dave mentioned, Lazer Ryderz takes the simple movement mechanics from the X-Wing Miniatures Game and turns it into a fast-paced race to claim Power Prizms. A healthy dose of randomness in Prizm placement ensures that every game is anybody’s game, and a relatively brief playtime makes this one a strong candidate for either a quick diversion or a lengthy tournament scene." -  GhettoBlaster Magazine

Dice Tower's Tom Vasel Review

Spirit Island

"I really like it, it feels fresh. The theme is extremely strong." - Dice Tower's Tom Vasel

"This game has smooth mechanics, deep play, and great (scalable) challenge. Best of all, it has an incredible theme that is well executed." - Andrew Duncan

"So much game here. It's meaty, but with relatively simple mechanics. I love that it's relatively easy to teach but still very challenging and has a well-defined way to ramp up the difficulty if you so desire. It plays great solo, or with others, and there is so much to think about that, unlike some co-ops, you don't have to worry about anyone in the group trying to take over and tell everyone what they need to do." - Eric Kuzniar

"Beautiful game (art and writing), interesting mechanics, highly modular with each Spirit playing VERY different from each other.High replayability, difficult game even on the easiest setting, and enjoyable to play. One of the few co-op games where it doesn't feel like one player is playing the game and everyone else is just along for the ride." - Naomi Nabbit
