The Library of Minigame Library Reviews
It’s always a relief to finish a series and compile an index (it’s a freebie article, so hey!), but I’ll confess I’m going to miss the anticipation of discovering what comes next in the Minigame Library from Level 99 Games. At least this collection has enjoyed enough success that we’ll be seeing another at some point, and Pixel Tactics will be getting a sequel sometime this summer! For your reading simplicity, I’ve compiled all my reviews below.
As before, just click an image to be taken straight to that article. Enjoy!
Thanks for reading!

These reviews have been fantastic! I never would have known about the Minigame Library without your reviews, so thank you!
What do you think of the package overall? Is it worth a purchase, or would you recommend buying the standouts (like Noir and Pixel Tactics) separately?
Anyway, great reviews!
Thanks for your kind words!
As for your question, I think it really depends on a couple factors.
First, in how many of the games are you interested? If you want everything but one or two games, I’d still recommend getting the whole Library even though it’ll cost a little extra. It comes with a printed manual and all the plastic odds and ends you’ll need to play the games, and it’s a good storage solution for all those individual decks of cards.
Second, does the thought of not having the printed manual and plastic bits bother you? For instance, buying Pixel Tactics alone means you’ll have to print off the rules on your own (if you want a physical copy), and you’ll need to figure out your own wound markers. Neither of these are difficult, but some people (me among them) like their games to be as “complete” as possible.
If you’re only interested in Pixel Tactics and Noir, I’d look into getting those two games on their own, as it’ll run you less than half as much as buying the whole package (in the Level 99 Games Store: $12 for Noir, $15 for Pixel Tactics when the reprint comes in; versus $60 for the whole Library).
