Philip S. Bolger Reviews Fallen Land: A Post-Apocalyptic Board Game
This past weekend, I had the opportunity to test out Fallen Land: A Post-Apocalyptic Boardgame (hereby referred to as “FL”), and I really, really enjoyed it. So, to lead in, I was hyped about this game since I first read about it. I like a lot in fiction, but I particularly enjoy those two magical decades—the 1980s and 1990s, and the culture they spawned...

December 10th, 2017
Nowadays, there are LOTS of games releasing, and honestly many games just get overlooked because they are so similar to 20 other games out there. So, I am always on the lookout for a game that separates itself from the rest. So when I heard about Fallen Land: A Post-Apocalyptic Board Game, it perked my interest because it was doing some things that other board games weren’t doing...

Board Game Exposure, Fallen Land Review, By Martyn Poole, September 2017
Fallen Land is table top game that promises a lot; strategy, role playing and card building. At first I will admit I was a bit skeptical of how this would pan out as often I have been promised something on Kickstarter, only for it to be a let-down. The game reminds me of GMT's games the way it looks and that was something that got me excited as I love all their games.

KRUI 89.7 FM Witching Hour: Beforeplay: An exploration of the art of playtesting @ The Mill 11/5/16
November 9th, 2016
By Landon Kuhlmann
Witching Hour is unlike most festivals that come to Iowa City. Though there is a lot of entertainment, the main goal of this festival is to expand perceptions and reach out into the unknown for new ideas.
Besides bands and comedians, this festival holds discussions and panels from a huge range of disciplines. Beforeplay was a panel discussion held at the Mill at 2 pm on the second day of festivities. Like the title suggests, the panel was exploring the process of playtesting, which is essentially the game maker putting the game in the hands of some trusted peers in order to receive some very early and important feedback.

Fallen Land: A Post-Apocalyptic Board Game
Going into the purchase of Fallen Land was a difficult choice, on the surface the game looks rather cheap for the steep price tag, but good post apocalyptic games IMHO are few and far between.
We had a little extra money and decided to take a chance on this game, and it payed off.
Immediately upon unboxing the game, we were both happy about the quality of the components, we had a few issues with some of the chips tearing when punching them out, but a little care and some glue prevented this from being an issue, the game comes in a deceptively small box, the weight of the box alone on arrival helped justify the purchase. The player boards are great, each faction is unique with a good backstory on the back, they're a little thin but that makes storage a lot easier considering that there are 10 factions. The game comes with over 400 cards, and each one appears to be unique with a few over laps ( many weapons and armors are similar in function but unique in design) this leads to a lot of randomization between games, you never know what people you're going to have or what equipment they can utilize...

Iowa City Press Citizen
November 3rd, 2016
Witching Hour Festival is not your average festival. Entering its second year, the Friday and Saturday arts festival in downtown Iowa City does not obsess over getting big names like other events.
"What guided us from day one was wanting to stay away from any notion of headliner culture," Andre Perry, the Englert Theatre executive director, and one of the curators of Witching Hour and the Mission Creek Festival, said last week...
