The Star Wars: Imperial Assault game box is very deep and comes with a cardboard insert in the box. However, it’s not a very functional insert at all. It’s more of just a divider to toss different components in general areas.
So our first step when we got the game was to grab a bunch of baggies to put the different components in. Then we’d toss them in different areas around the provided divider.
But it still meant a lot of baggies to open every time we wanted to play — as well as when it came time to put it all away.
With the game insert from Insert Here though, that’s a thing of the past!
There’s a lot of components in Star Wars: Imperial Assault.
We love how easy it is to get everything out and ready for playing.
All we have to do is remove the two small game trays that hold the dice and tokens, grab the card decks from their stations in the card insert area, and pick out our minis that are easily found in their bins.
The small trays are very useful.
There are so many different decks of cards in Star Wars: Imperial Assault that there isn’t a separate section for each deck. So we group the cards before storing them in the card tray.
But since the card backs are so distinct in the game, it’s not really hard to grab the ones you need for the game.
There’s also plenty of room in each card section if you like to sleeve your cards.
The card tray has space in the middle to stack the token trays.
The part of the game set up that can’t be simplified regardless of how you store the game is setting up the board.
Since each game of Imperial Assault requires a different map set up, finding the right map tiles will always take a little bit of time.
The small map tiles have their own tray as well.
However, even with that the Insert Here game insert helps by including a separate tray for the small map tiles.
Rather than having the many small pieces like hallway connectors, entrances, exits, and end caps mixed in with the rest of the map tiles, now they have their own area — making them easier to find and grab as well.
Token trays are very nice.
Even though the game still takes up a bunch of room on a game table, having the tokens organized neatly in a token tray helps save on game table space.
We don’t have to worry about token piles spreading all over since they’re all nicely contained in these trays next to the board.
Wow has car racing come a long way since I was a kid!
Bridging video games, mobile games, and physical track car racing, Anki Overdrive is a ton of fun!
Or as we like to call it in our house, Mario Kart Live.
Why? Because Anki Overdrive is the modern way to race cars in your living room.
It’s an amazing racing system where the cars fly around a variety of tracks but players control their cars through their digital devices. And just like in racing video games, players earn points through their accomplishments on the track and use them to level-up their cars and equip them with all sorts of gadgets.
With Thanksgiving this week in the US, we want to take some time to express our gratitude.
There are so many things to be thankful for that this post could be a very long one.
But we’ll keep it short.
The first thing we’re most thankful for is our family. It’s not easy being a parent (or sibling) and some days are tougher than others, but it’s so worth it. There’s no other place where we can learn to love another so much as in our own homes.
So grateful for our family! It’s the best place to learn to love.
We’re also so thankful for our extended family. We were recently reminded of amazing family bonds at the funeral of one of my uncles. We may not see each other very often, but it’s so nice reconnecting with cousins and other family members.
Likewise we’re so grateful for the many friends and neighbors that have such a big impact in our lives. We’re continually inspired by great men, women, teenagers, and children we get to interact with on a regular basis. They make us want to be better every day.
While Doodle Quest is a fun drawing game and great for practicing spatial perception skills, Loony Quest amps up both the fun and the skill level to great effect.
And Loony Quest much better deserves its title of “Quest”.
Because in Loony Quest players have different goals to complete for experience points along the way — kind of like in a video game realm. The last level of each world also has a Boss for players to defeat.
