Unfair

Build the city’s greatest theme park, whatever it takes!

Mix your favourite themes, from Pirate, Robot, Vampire, Jungle, Ninja, and Gangster. Build attractions and upgrade them to match blueprints, stack up towering rides, or simply make the most cash.

But watch out – your competitors may pay off the safety inspectors to close your rides or hire hooligans to vandalise your park! How will you get revenge?

Whatever happens, it’s bound to be Unfair.

Over the course of 8 rounds, you play Event cards to help yourself and hinder your opponents, build Attractions and Upgrades using Park cards, and match your park to Blueprints.

Your goal is to build the highest-scoring park at game end, using three main ways to score:

  • building your park to match Blueprints
  • building impressively tall Attractions with lots of Upgrades
  • buying your way to victory with good old fashioned cash

You might hire staff to help you, or build a Super Attraction with a unique ability. Bribing officials and blackmailing politicians is also possible, but entirely optional.

The Long View

THE LONG VIEW

Hosted by Geofrey Gambill

The Long View is a podcast dedicated to taking a closer, more detailed and critical look at the games we love to play. Each episode focuses on in-depth review and discussion of a single game, often for close to an hour or more! My guest is always an expert in the game; someone who has played the game many, many times, and has discovered it’s hidden features or flaws. In addition, The Long View also offers Quick Looks episodes which feature more traditional reviews of new games. It is my hope that deeper discussion and analysis of games will help us discover what makes some games truly memorable, lasting and great, while others quickly fade away. Join us through iTunes or Stitcher subscription, or you can check out the podcast archive of episodes at www.thelongviewpodcast.com  Thanks for listening!

Heavy Cardboard

HEAVY CARDBOARD

Hosted by Edward & Amanda Uhler

From Edward and Amanda…

“In each weekly episode of the podcast, we focus our attention on one game to discuss & review.  On occasion, we’ll host interviews, discuss important topics in the hobby, or get a little personal, as we enjoy the close connection that we have with our listeners.  Ultimately, our main focus remains on the games themselves.  We look at the game from all angles, as well as share our thoughts, impressions, and opinions with you, the listener.  The intention is not to teach you how to play but to provide a thorough review of the game while, hopefully, entertaining y’all.  In the end, we aim to provide a well-rounded feel for the game and to help you decide if the game is one that you might enjoy.”

Coming Soon!

Check back soon for solo/couples game reviews, original fiction, and an integrated story/game experience where you’ll have the opportunity to play along with the story as it unfolds.
