AMoT Review – Arboretum


Welcome. Sit down. Have a cup of tea. We are about to take you on a gentle relaxing stroll through a beautiful garden of trees with a game that is anything but gentle and relaxing and may leave you rocking back and forth in a corner somewhere muttering about ones and eights. That’s right, it’s time to review Arboretum.

Included are a few audio grabs from movies that match the classic feel of the game (and may mention trees) in case you want to end your board game night with a themed show and need some ideas.

The audio grabs in this episode are from:

  • Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964)
  • Back to the Future Part II (1989)
  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)
  • It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)

AMoT – Intro Episode


This episode is all about us and the podcast formats we host. We hope you enjoy it!

As discussed in this podcast, our basic review format is:

  • Game Facts
  • Basic Game Play
  • Review; a look at presentation, rookie rating, player interaction, balance, replay ability and theme
  • Best and Worst
  • Final Thoughts

We like to give you a little bit more in our podcast than just a review so for all review episodes we will be including a few audio grabs from movies and TV shows that match the theme of the game in case you want to end your board game night with a show and need some ideas. Of course this will be a little trickier with some of the more abstract games but we will do our best. (This episode is an example of a very abstract theme.) The audio clips will always be listed in the podcast show notes in case you don’t recognise them.

The audio grabs in this episode are from:

  • The Video Board Game Nightmare (1991)
  • Billy Madison (1995)
  • Shrek (2001)
  • Oliver & Company (1988)
