Blue Herring Games

~ because life's too short for another game of Monopoly ~

Blue Herring Games celebrates modern board gaming with a range of reviews, player guides, products, and general musings.

Our focus is on increasing the exposure of quality board games to those seeking a new diversion.

  • No pop culture toys ('bobble heads' confuse and slightly scare us)
  • No video games (we never completed 'Frankie Goes to Hollywood' on the Commodore 64, and perhaps never really recovered)
  • No Monopoly (surely everyone already has a copy?)
  • Just quality board games!
Through board games, we have a chance to sit down with family and friends, relax, talk, have a drink, occasionally curse, frequently laugh. It is hopefully a fun experience. It is always a social experience. Enjoy!


 * August Specials *

With the launch of the Tuscany Essential Edition, its older brother, the Tuscany Complete Edition, will slowly head out of print. Tuscany Complete contains all the modules of the Essential Edition, plus the bonuses in Viticulture Essential Edition, plus some other expansion modules that are unique to this version. A great purchase for those who only have the original Viticulture game! (Preorder customers can get in touch if they want to upgrade to this version)
