It’s Saturday. I’m hanging out in the bear’s den here. LGS has a huge tourney going on, so I’m just gonna hang out here. So it’s me, John Mulaney, and typing up the Review Roundup. Literally Netflix and chill (no innuendo). Everyone needs just some relaxed days occasiona...

Well… I do often lament that there’s occasionally a lack of diversity when it comes to themes in games. Then along comes Butts in Space, where you’re looking to get back the toilet paper that’s been stolen from your now-destroyed toilet ship. I have to admit, it’s differ...

Vikings are pretty much one of the world’s best-known souvenir-hunters. They’d head out, find a nice spot, then grab a couple trinkets to remember the trip by (if you consider “everything of value that wasn’t bolted down, and even then, that’s not a guarantee” to b...

Tea. It’s possibly the most popular drink in the world (even though I don’t really like it. But who cares about what I like in beverages?). It’s especially popular in East Frisia, a small, German Village on the North Sea. And it’s a major new good you’ll be able to get i...

I certainly hope that you find TGN a reputable news source. I do my best to not post rumors and only give you stories that I can back up with a source. However, with news, that’s not always the case. Some places are better sources than others, and who you trust can change over time. […]...

Have you ever sat around with your friends, watching TV and seen an ad for a new movie that’s coming out and gone, “pfeh. That looks like garbage. I could come up with a better movie idea than that!”? Pretty much all of us have (or some variation of that scenario). Rotten Plots, a n...

You know me. I love when I see a game be successful on Kickstarter and then be made available to the general market. This is one such success story. Snippets had a good Kickstarter and now you can pick up a copy for yourself. Fun for the whole family, the game is more about creativity […]...

I used to work at a hospital. It was a pretty dangerous place. Sharp objects. Strange chemicals. Zombies. Ok, maybe there weren’t zombies… that I know of… But in Zombie Doctor, the zombies are definitely there, and they’re the doctors, themselves! In the game, players are look...

I get to work at a time that most people would consider “ridiculously early.” A major reason for that is because, depending on when, exactly, I leave, my commute can easily double in duration, due to traffic. We’ve all been stuck in a traffic jam at some point. And we’ve all w...

There’s an evil Lich living (… err… undead-ing?) in the mansion on the hill. It’s up to the Dark Seekers to go and get them out of there. And if they just happen to become all-powerful, themselves, along the way, well, that’s just a happy accident, isn’t it? That&#...

Just about any group of friends has come up with names for situations they’ve been in. You know, semi-vague sayings that hint at what happened, but don’t really give it all away. Many are rife with innuendo. Well, Oscar’s Hot Night Out is a game designed to help you come up with nam...

We’ve all told tall tales from our past. It was really a $5 bill and not a $100 you found that one time on the ground. The fish you caught was only 2lbs and not 10lbs. You only defeated 3 frost giants and not 16. You know how it goes. But sometimes you might be […]...

Can you lie to your friends with a straight face? Well, “lie” is such a mean word. Can you bluff your friends with a straight face? Personally, I love bluffing games. But then, I could weave all sorts of yarns and probably get someone to believe them. So I’m definitely interested in...

I’ve been trying to come up with some clever way of introducing this game, but I think that straight-forward is just the best: Motes and Beams is basically Mormon Cards Against Humanity. Though there’s a bit more than that, as they throw in extra cards where you can swap or take cards fro...

Gamers love games (seems pretty obvious). Gamers, so I’ve found, by and large, love to drink. As such, you will very often see these two things mixed together and you get drinking games. Four Kings, by Tako Games, is one such drinking game. Players will draw cards from a deck and, generally spe...

Kickstarters don’t always succeed the first time around. This can be due to an almost unlimited number of factors. But if that happens, creators shouldn’t be disheartened. I’ve seen quite a few campaigns reconfigure, regroup, and relaunch with a campaign that blows away their initia...
