This is a review of the Big Kid pack.


Awesome spoilers inside!


First look!


Kairo ($32)
The bazaar in Caro is bustling already early in the morning. Carpets, precious oils and exquisite spice are awaiting for their customers. Build your market place to attract the most customers! The bigger the shop the more victory points!
This game actually sounds interesting. It only takes 45-60 minutes to play and it's a good strategy game with lots of thinking and planning required.


Lost Legacy The Starship ($9.99)
Discover where the Lost Legacy can be found and win the game! Lost Legacy is a game of risk, deduction and luck.
This is a quick deduction card game for 2-4 players. It gets high reviews on Amazon!


Press Start Pocket ($7)
Press Start Pocket is a fast paced card game for 2 - 6 players. All out 8-bit war! Fight your way past pixelated opponents to win your share of 8-bit Glory!
This game was launched and funded on Kickstarter. It's not my style of game but others may find it interesting.


Jeopardy! Travel Edition ($12.99)
Jeopardy!® Travel Edition Card Game puts the big fun of Jeopardy into a small package to take on the road. The card game features exclusive content not contained in the big box board game.
I LOVE this game! Jeopardy is one of my fave television game shows, so this board game is awesome.


High Command Rapid Engagement ($11.99)
High Command Rapid Engagement is a two-player deck building card game in which players raise and lead mighty armies to capture strategic objectives across the Iron Kingdoms. Leverage your resources and command your forces to set your banner above all western Immoren!
This is a 2 player card game that takes 45-60 minutes to play. It's not my kind of game though.



The June Awesome Pack for Big Kids included five games, with a retail value at $74 US. Three of the five items are card games. All can be played in under an hour, which is what I requested on my profile. I'm thrilled with the Jeopardy! game, and Kairo is interesting to me. The two card games aren't for me, so I will have to update my profile quiz again for next time. I've found Awesome Pack very responsive when it comes to requesting changes or further customization.
