Last year CMON Inc. brought us the English version of The Grizzled, a WWI-themed card game of squad survival. It’s right in my wheelhouse for favorite types of games, as it’s quick to set up and play, has some cool artwork, and the theme being WWI I really like. Well, now I’m going ...

I hope everyone’s Monday is going well and nobody has “a case of the Mondays.” One way to beat the Monday Blues is to talk about gaming (or so I’ve found, anyway). All the stories of what happened over the weekend, recounting epic adventures, or fantasy sports matches, or wiza...

When you want to play some role-playing games, sometimes you can’t find someone to be the DM/GM. That can be a real pain. Thankfully, there are dungeon-crawl board games that are there to step in and pick up the slack, letting you get some good monster-slashing action without the need of someon...
