January 23, 2014: Reviews!
Jeff Provine over at Blog Critics recently reviewed Munchkin Apocalypse, Chez Geek, and Castellan! Spoiler: he liked them a lot! Here's an excerpt from his Castellan review:
Much of the fun of Castellan is in its theme of castle-building, and the blocks alone are enough to enjoy the medieval style. There is a distinct portion of the rules set aside to explain chivalry, a relic of a more civilized age. Players must be worthy of the title "noble" and should not "take advantage of trivial errors." Another player who sees a forgotten or unclaimed piece must point it out to his opponent as justice dictates. This is a far cry from other games, where taking every advantage possible is only rational.
Also, here's GeekDad's review of Munchkin Pathfinder!

And finally, Board Game Tavern has a great comparison article that puts Zombie Dice up against Tasty Minstrel's Martian Dice!
