Cornell's Review Corner

My quick ratings for recent games I’ve reviewed (on a scale of 1 to 10):

In Harm’s Way (Better Mousetrap): Supports troupe play, which is a plus, but entirely too much mainstream appeal to make any sort of real statement. Based on the Horatio Hornblower novels, which were adapted from an A&E miniseries. 4/10

MilkWork (by Professor Curtis) A haunting work of great import that comes down to the one moment each mother has to decide: to breastfeed or not to breastfeed? Possibly a great date game. 10/10.

RuneQuest (Mongoose Edition): Let’s be honest: any edition of RuneQuest that doesn’t take Trollbabe into consideration is going to be a commercial failure. 1/10

Soliloquy
(by Professor Curtis): A haunting work of great import that comes down to the one moment each Hamlet has to decide: to be or not to be? Possibly a great date game. 10/10

My Life With Hitler (Half Meme): Picking up where My Life With Master left off, players take the role of Eva Braun in 1944 Germany. You still get silk stockings! Look out for those briefcase bombs! Does his moustache tickle? You decide! 7/10

Gallipoly
(by Professor Curtis): A board game/RPG that combines the movie and WWI battle Gallipoli with all the fun of Monopoly. Buy up all the trenches! Establish a beachhead and build a hotel! Most importantly, this haunting work of great import that comes down to the one moment each player has to decide: to pass Go or not to pass Go? Possibly a great date game. 10/10

@ Settembrini: Clearly, the game is being retooled and not quite ready for public release. We will, however, be looking for reviewers once Professor Curtis believes it is a complete thematic/board game experience.

And please, I've asked before, no false Professor Curtises, please. I do not wish to somehow cheapen (as if that is possible) the rare times he graces us here with his presence.

Elitist: The Wanking A haunting game, imported, that cmes down to the moment that each pseudo-intellectual must decide: to drop 'em right here or do it on the internets? A very dated game.
