GHOST CHASE

Let's get spooky, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls! Come with me and let me take you on a trip to Canterville Castle! Never heard of it? Well, that might just be caused by the fact that not a lot of people visit the castle anymore. You see, besides the naturally creepy vibe most old castles give off, Canterville Castle is actually haunted... by a ghost named Max!

KILLER BUNNIES AND THE QUEST FOR THE MAGIC CARROT

Most of us like bunnies. They're cute and cuddly and wouldn't harm a fly, now would they?! Well, okay; Watership Down had some pretty evil bunnies, but even they weren't total psychopaths. But I have discovered there is also a dark side to this long-eared species of fur balls...

BARPG

Alright, I never doubted for a minute that working at DumeeGamer was going to be totally cool and amazing. However, even I was surprised by the memo I received a couple of days ago. It said (and I quote): "get your ass over to the bar and make sure you got your drinking cap on!". Drinking on the job'? Now, I don't know about you guys, but that has never been said to me before by a boss... but who am I to disobey? So before I knew it I was sitting at the local pub with some of the more brave colleagues from the DumeeGamer crew around a table filled with beer, wine and other alcoholic beverages. Something was different though... something else was also on the table: a card game.

BOSS MONSTER

ASHES: RISE OF THE PHOENIXBORN

Well, my brilliant plan to set-up a new lair in a far-off country didn’t exactly go as planned. Even though the weather was better and the monsters and food were definitely more exotic, there is nothing better than the awesome monster-infested lair where I was raised.

THE SETTLERS OF CATAN

Somewhere in 2000’s I played The Settlers of Catan for the first time. As always when you play a new game, you’ll have to learn the basics first and in my family, this usually results in one big shouting contest. But, after two rounds of arguing and practice, I got the hang of it and realized I loved this game!

ARMELLO

Technically, this game is not a board game... mainly because there's no board involved. You don't even need a table to play this game. "Why", you ask? Well, mostly because this is a computer game. But it's so much like a board game that I've decided to add it to my very own category. So, without further ado, may I present: Armello!

COSMIC ENCOUNTER

SPACE… it’s big, it’s cold, it’s empty (well apart from planets and stars and meteors) and, according to popular belief, we’re alone in the universe… or are we? If we believe movies there ARE aliens around and better yet, they come in different shapes and sizes...
