What is By Order of the Queen?
By Order of the Queen is a 2-4 player cooperative fantasy RPG-lite board game that plays in 90-120 minutes. Players take on the role of a Guildmaster of the Kingdom of Tessandor. There are so many heroes wanting to help the Queen that the guilds have been tasked with assigning heroes to protect the Kingdom as they see fit.

I was at a local game store recently and heard about one of Peter Newland’s recent games. The line I was told was that the game takes under a minute to play. How weird as a concept….. and as a fledgling game designer myself I became incredibly interested in how something like that would even work. Then the theme came in – Drag Racing…… and it all makes sense now.

Sometimes when you play games you feel like there MUST be some kind of weird backstory involved in the creation process of the game in front of you. With Yukon Salon, I’ve got to assume there is a range of answers here, from someone having a mighty mighty beard to someone else thinking the name makes for a funny rhyme. Either way, we now have a game for all your Lumberjack beardtrimming needs. Also, style their pets too, you know, those bears they are always rolling around with.

Another Deck Builder??! This era of board gaming sometimes feels similar to the time that Magic the Gathering was released, where everyone and their dog was releasing a new TCG into the market. Everyone has a deck builder game, or a twist on the deck builder mechanic. Heck, WE (at Junk Spirit Games) even have a deck builder coming down the pipeline….. But for me, this style of game is about the only type of game that my wife will play with me, so I madly buy every deck builder that looks like they half tried to keep from having to play 15 billion rounds of Dominion (which I love). Mystic Vale from AEG hits a lot of the best points of deck building while adding a bit of tableau building.
