It’s good to be the king. It’s so good, in fact, people are willing to raise armies and backstab their friends in order to get there. And that’s just what you’ll be doing in Reign, a new card game that’s up on Kickstarter now. Will you be the one to wear the onyx crown?...

Well… hmm… *looks over the campaign and see what sort of things I can actually share about it, considering we try and keep TGN to a PG-13 rating, considering a lot of people browse while at work/school* Umm… well… it’s a card game. We can’t show you any of the artw...

It’s a beautiful Saturday here in Atlanta. The sun’s shining. It’s warm outside. … Sounds like a perfect time to go to the LGS and stay inside, playing games all day! 😀 And to those dealing with ice up in the midwest, best to stay inside and play some games all day. Long story...

Kids love dinosaurs. At least, as a kid, I did. I never really grew out of it, either, to be honest. The giant lizards that used to roam our Earth seem almost too cool to be actually true. And while there are some dinosaur-themed games out there, a lot of them have you hunting the […]...

Who wouldn’t want a robot companion? You could have them do some of the chores around the apartment, have yourself some wild adventures, and do all those cool things you see in the movies. But you gotta build your robot first. And if you’re going to build your own robot, you might as well...

Sure, despite being deaf, dumb, and blind, Tommy could play a mean game of pinball, but what about looking at the game from the ball’s point of view? That’s what you’ll be doing in Pinball Showdown, a new card game that’s up on Kickstarter now. Humongous shoes for Elton John s...

Just beyond lays a realm full of elder beings. Crazy, insane gods lurk, ready to make their way into our own world. Defending against these creatures are the Investigators. Their job is a difficult one, since just knowing too much about those elder beings can cause you to go insane. You must tread ca...

Well, one down and 51 to go. We’re a week into 2017 and it’s been a bit of an odd one, at least for me. No single day was “an average day,” really. Whether I was working from home or had to go to the repair shop, or just had the day off, I’m somewhat […]...

Munchkin is one of those games that I think it’s safe to say that most of us have played at some point. I know I have, actually playing a whole bunch of the different versions. It’s those different versions that make the game rather fun. Well, a new version is out, of sorts, that you [&he...

One of the most important civilizations in world history (and, quite possibly, one of the largest threats to everyday life, if comics and movies are to be believed), Egypt has left a lasting legacy. Even today, fascination with the land along the Nile continues to grow. Well, gamers that have an inte...

The final week of 2016 continues on. I know a lot of people are enjoying a bit of a break here at the end of the year. Many game companies are taking a little bit of time off. But that’s not to say we don’t have a good bit of bite-sized stories to snack on. […]...

For those that have played it, Dixit is quite a bit different than your average card game. Each card has a strange and whimsical scene on it that the Storyteller player must describe using just a word, phrase, or sentence. Other players then look at their own hand of cards and choose their own card [...

There are many ways one can get by in this world. Some people do it through honest and just means. Others wreck ships, wait for crates of loot to come ashore, and then run off with them. In HMS Dolores, a new card game available this week from Asmodee, you and your fellow players are […]...

You’re there. You’re leading your army. You’re slaughtering your way through enemy troops. You’re making good headway towards some unimportant hill that seems somewhat important to your opponents (hence why the slaughtering. You can’t let the enemy have that hill, no mat...

Conquering the Overlord in the underworld wasn’t easy. In fact, the first time around, the Rebels didn’t quite make it. However, this second assault has proven much more successful. But defeating the Overlord was just the first step in the Rebel’s plan. Now, all the souls that the O...

I have a friend who is a bird watcher. *waves to PA* I’d love to have his eyesight. He can spot and identify birds at a distance where I go, “Yup… that’s a dark speck, alright.” Well, you don’t have to have PA’s eyesight in order to play Birds and Squirrels. ...

Who says wizards can’t get nasty when there’s gold involved? Research materials and books are expensive, y’know. So when there’s a pile of gold to be split, every wizard is going to want to get their share of it, and they’re not above using spells in order to do so. That...

We’ve been getting Star Wars: Destiny previews for a while now. We’ve seen what the different colors of cards mean, and a bit about the dice a long time ago. But we’ve never really gotten it all put together as to how the game actually works. If you’ve been astute and really r...
