There are some that want to revamp how we elect the President here in the US. Well, in Outlaws: Last Man Standing, a card game coming from Holy Grail Games, it’s certainly a bit different than just casting a vote. In the game, players take on the role of a Western governor looking to become [&h...

You know squirrels. They’re always looking after their nuts. And that’s just what they’ll be doing in Dirty Rotten Squirrels, a new card game that’s up on Kickstarter. Though, unlike reality, these squirrels are packing heat. Plus, being flighty (as squirrels are wont to be), ...

Man, it’s hard to think that Gen Con was a week ago. At this point, the show was more than half-over. How time flies. Hopefully everyone was able to recuperate well. I seem to have missed out on getting Con Crud. So that’s good. My feet were feeling just fine again by Tuesday. So thatR...

When talking about the Star Wars universe, a thing that really sets it apart from some other sci-fi universes is the Force. It’s the magical, mystical … umm… force… caused by bacteria or something… (man, the Prequels really kicked the lore right in the junk, didn’t...

Games are played all over the world (duh). So, of course, there’s games that we here in the English-speaking world have never gotten a chance to play. One such game is called Schnapsen, a traditional card game from Austria. Well, Yodelgames is looking to bring that game back in a new form as Re...

Back at my old LGS in St. Louis, they would have quarterly used gaming auctions. It was fun to bid on the various items that were there. Auctions are a rather interesting and fun place to be. You can end up with all sorts of stuff, including things you might really need. That’s what you’r...

While I don’t consider myself a “Brony,” I do think that the various pony and unicorn stuff around is rather cool and interesting. Especially when it’s taken in various directions other than just MLP. One such thing that’s caught my eye is Unstable Unicorns. If you know ...

Honestly, I didn’t have a huge “to buy” list for Gen Con. A couple miniatures from Steamforged. Some cool dice. And the newest Ascension set from Stone Blade Entertainment. I’m happy to say that I was able to get everything I wanted. But for those of you that couldn’t ge...

I know. I know. I know. It’s Tuesday, not Saturday. But I was a tad busy Saturday, if you didn’t notice. 😉 So, after flying home yesterday, and then getting around 12 hours of sleep overnight, I’m looking to get back into the swing of things here. Most companies “shut downR...

Gen Con this year has been everything I was expecting it to be. Mostly: filled with awesome stuff to see and filled with lots of people! Saturday has always been the busiest day, and yesterday was no exception. And while there was a mildly-noticeable larger crowd, we weren’t all packed in like ...

It’s early dawn here at Gen Con Day 2. I… wish I could tell you what happened to Day 1. I swear it was just here a minute ago. At least, that’s how it feels. I can tell you that the hall is busy. But what would you expect from a show that’s sold out? […]...

Most of us have known someone who just had too many cats. I had a neighbor when I lived out on Kansas that was a true “reclusive crazy cat lady.” Well, those cats started out as kittens. And maybe the lady was just looking to create a cat army. That’s what you’ll be doing in [...

You know, we get movie trilogies all the time. Certainly there’s plenty of book trilogies out there. And that guy from Spinal Tap’s working on his musical trilogy, but there aren’t as many game trilogies. Well, IDW Games and March Hare are looking to change that. They’ve annou...

Sort of a double-whammy of an update from Steamforged Games in this one. First, they’re going to reopen their Backerkit for the board game. So if you’re interested in picking up some more extras for it, including a couple new ones that they’ve got, this is your chance to do so at th...

Look, just because something is in a scrap yard doesn’t mean it’s useless. You can find all sorts of great stuff there. Just take, for example, parts for CivShips. Those pieces are expensive, but you can find them all over in the scrapyard. In the end, you could have a first-class CivShip...

Getting stranded on an island out in the middle of the ocean is pretty terrible. Thankfully, there’s a small amount of resources to be found. There’s only one issue. There’s not quite a lot of food. Hey… did you ever realize that you kind of look like a ham sandwich? WizKids h...
