Game Review: Battle Sheep versus Battleship

Today we played Battle Sheep and then played Battleship to have a battle combo!

In Battle Sheep you control stacks of sheep and try to get as many sheep in their own pasture.
Mom thinks Battle Sheep is a very good game for every family to own.

 Battle Sheep:
Matias gives it: 9/10
Mom gives it: 10/10
Results: Mom won best of 3

 In Battleship you call out coordinates and try to sink all 5 of your opponent's ships before they sink yours!

Matias gives it: 9/10
Mom gives it: 8/10
Results: Tie 1-1

Game Review: Hive

Today we played Hive: A Game Crawling with Possibilities

Hive is a 2 person game that has 5 different types of bug pieces. Just like in Chess, each piece can move in a different, specific way. The best thing about this game is that it is portable, it doesn't take very long to play (5-10 minutes), and if you like it there are game expansions you can buy: the mosquito, the ladybug and the pill bug. Overall a good game!

Matias gives it: 9.75/10
Helen gives it: 7/10
Game Results: Helen won the best of three.

Game Review: Pompeii

Today we will review The Downfall of Pompeii.
The Downfall of Pompeii is a very fun game that includes lava, escaping, and throwing people into a volcano. The COOLEST part of this game is the 3-D volcano on the board that you throw your opponent's pieces into.

This game has two halves. First you put people into the city, then the volcano erupts - BOOM - and you try to get your people OUT.

The rules in the first half of the game are a little more complicated than necessary and it is not that great, but the second half of the game is a lot more fun. You get to throw people into the volcano, and of course, you are required to scream when your guys burn up. A little violent, maybe, but fun.

Matias gives it: 9.5/10
Helen gives it: 7/10
Game Results: Matias beats Helen 18 to 16. Yea Matias!!!
