Written Reviews and Previews

Games Reviews

"The wooden coloured ships look fantastic, with legible printing denoting the bow and stern. The cardboard flags for each faction nicely nestle into the ships, and easily come out – I was never worried about wrecking anything.

...I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – good components WILL make a game more desirable to play."

Tech Raptor

"Stylistically, Old Salt has a very classic design, with very little plastic. The ships are made of wooden pieces, and though we only played with a prototype, it still felt refined in its composition. The evocative artwork feels perfectly suited to the nature of the game, recalling tales of high glory on the open seas. We left this prototype preview positively impressed, and ready to set sail ourselves."

Purple Phoenix Games

"Old Salt is definitely a good gateway game into heavier wargames. If you’re wanting to check out that genre, but are nervous about starting with some of the heavy hitters, consider giving Old Salt a play. It gives you a good taste of that style of gameplay, without being too overwhelming."

Everything Board Games

"The unique Faction abilities make for an even more engrossing experience, it is absolutely electric being able to be the only player that can salvage wreckage from other ships, or leave behind a trail of debris that serves as an obstruction for other players! And that is just the tip of the iceberg!

Old Salt has carries highest recommendation, and I very much look forward to seeing the final form it takes! A+!"
