It’s April. The end of April. It’s about to get really hot here in Atlanta for a couple months. I don’t know about you, but I’m already wishing it was October. I mean, I have friends who always wish it was October, but at the moment, I’m ready for it as well. When many t...

Occasionally, you look at a game and go, “you know, this game works just fine, but the art could use a bit of touching up.” That’s just what Fantasy Flight Games did with Blood Bound, their social game of vampire clans. They have announced that a new edition is coming out with all-n...

Sometimes you want to get your D&D adventuring on, but you just can’t seem to get all your players together. Or you don’t quite have the time to have a full session. Well, before, you might just have to call it quits. But with the Dragonfire deck-building game coming from Catalyst Ga...

Well, we’re a few days past 4/20, but if you’re in someplace like Colorado, it doesn’t really need to be then to partake in some herb. And when doing such, maybe check out Stoner Loonacy, a new version of the Loonacy card game from Fully Baked Ideas....

Hey everyone. I’m sure a lot of you are reading this after getting back from Salute. If that’s the case… *envy-waves in your direction* I wish I’d been there. Maybe someday. But for those of us in the States, Australia, and elsewhere that can only live vicariously through your...

Goblins might work together some of the time, but they’re just as ready to attack one-another as they are humans or elves or dwarves or such. They’re also rather sneaky, so you’ve gotta watch your back against surprise attacks. Keep your wits about you and you might just survive Gob...

I’ve had pets that’ve had fleas before. By god are they annoying. And they get everywhere and multiply like you wouldn’t believe. Ugh, it’s awful and nobody (that I can think of) likes them. Certainly the dogs and cats that they bite don’t like them. That’s why the...

The week continues on. Most of my friends had a really busy weekend, so they’re having a bit of a time making it through the week. But it’s halfway over. The next weekend is making its way here as fast as the natural laws of time will allow. What might help is by filling up […]...

Your army is determined to take that hill. Why do you want it? Because, apparently, your opponents want it. And you’ll be damned if you let even the most insignificant hill fall into enemy hands. But the fight isn’t going well, and you need to change up your strategy. Maybe grab some merc...

This is one I’ve been waiting for. A while ago, Fantasy Flight Games announced that they were taking over the license for the Legend of the Five Rings card game. They were going to make it a Living Card Game and relaunch it at Gen Con 2017. It seemed so far away, then. But it’s […]...

Yes, I know it’s Tuesday and not Saturday. But Saturday I was preoccupied wondering how he (Jonah) eats and breathes, and other science facts. And then Monday I was recouping from the weekend of laughing my ass off. So today’s going to be a bit of a catch-up day. Anyway, let’s get t...

Running out of a print run of a game is, technically, a good problem to have. It means you’ve sold through your inventory. Of course, it also means you’re now out of things to sell. So it’s good to get another run of the game printed up. And if you can update some stuff in […...

That’s not to say that the game is self-aware. Sentient is just the name of the game. A board game that knows its own existence sounds like some summer blockbuster movie. But no, this is “just” a game. In it, you’ll be trying to program sentient robots to work out in the world...

Ah, Camelot. It might be a silly place (where you sing from the diaphragm a lot), but it’s still full of wonders and spectacle. One such spectacle takes the form of tournaments, where knights look to show their prowess in combat against one-another. But, seeing as Merlin is never far away, ther...

Back when I read comics, I was an X-fan. I mostly read X-Factor, but since I also read Wolverine, so that means I read some X-Men as well. And, of course, I watched the cartoon as well. As such, I’ve always been more a Marvel fan than a DC fan. So, even though I don’t […]...

Villains aren’t really known for doing team-ups. Most of the time, they tend to work on their own. But sometimes they realize that they, alone, won’t be able to finish their goals like they want. In such times, tenuous alliances have been formed. You get to do just that same thing in The ...
