Shannon Applecline Reviews The Colonists

Our friend Shannon Applecline of RPG.net has reviewed The Colonists and had this to say: The Colonists is a big game. A really big game. You need to be able to commit 2-8 hours to play it, either all at once, or in up to four chunks of time. If you can, it'll be one of the deepest and densest games you've played, with truly evolutionary play along the way.

Gameosity Reviews Barenpark

Our friends at Gameosity have played Barenpark and they like (almost) everything about it!

"Barenpark is an abstract tile-layer. That they went with such a fun, if paper-thin theme is delightful. And yeah, it’s essentially multi-player solitaire, but that fits the weight-class just fine – the simple race that Barenpark represents is perfectly suited to its filler-class length and depth."

Sahm Reviews' Take on Portal of Heroes

Our friends at Sahm Reviews gave Portal of Heroes a look and here's (in part) what they had to say: Portal of Heroes is the second game from Mayfair Games we’ve discovered that has a huge amount of game value in a small box. Oh My Goods ranked up there as one of the most complex small-box games we’ve ever encountered, and Portal of Heroes will also stay in our game bag as one that is easy to teach, yet offers much more than a standard game of Hearts or Rummy.

Live the life of a shipping magnate with Le Havre

The place is the south coast of the English Channel, in the Normandy region of France. Here rests the magnificent port of Le Havre, gateway to Europe. In Uwe Rosenberg’s classic board game, Le Havre™, each player is vying to become the preeminent shipping magnate, outshining their competitors.

A Fond Farewell to a Mayfair Founder

It is with a heavy heart that we report the passing of one of Mayfair's co-founders, Peter Bromley. Peter died on September 2, 2016 after a brief illness. Peter and his brother Darwin along with a few other gamers founded Mayfair Games in 1981. Peter had several roles during his many years with the company including game designing and development, assisting with art direction, marketing, sales and even shipping. Peter was a constant presence in the company until this past year.
