We review Star Trek: Five Year Mission and Medieval Academy.

Five Year Mission is a cooperative dice game where each player takes on the role of a character from the original series or the Next Generation. Alert cards place missions on the table. The crew must contribute dice to these missions and finish them before they fail or the ship is torn to pieces. The fate of the Enterprise is in your hands.

In Medieval Academy each player is a squire training to be a knight. Draft and play cards in order to advance on various training boards testing your brains, brawn, charity and gallantry. The squire who earns the most chivalry points will be knighted by King Arthur at the end of the game.
