Review: Arbiter: I’ve played this game on and off since it came out, and it’s just way too much fun. The amount of fun creating a spaceship made out of plastic, then slamming it into other ships is just awesome. This game is fun solo but is way better with friends. I can easily recommend this, and it’s a great price too for the amount of content. There’s a bit of a learning curve but it’s not too bad. 7.5/10
