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 […]...

Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana. In Death by Cantaloupe, a new card game up on Kickstarter, you’ll be looking for those flying bananas. In the game, players are looking to collect exactly 100 points worth of fruit. Standing in their way are cards requiring a specific combina...

It’s not just Saturday. It’s a 3-day weekend Saturday! The best kind of Saturday! (well, except for 4-day weekend Saturdays, or week-off Saturdays, but let’s not get pedantic here) I’m just kinda chillin’ today. Why go and run yourself ragged? Instead, I’ll just ha...

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...

Woo! Saturday! Woo! As you’re reading this, I’m over at the LGS, hanging out and just taking it easy. I’m hoping you’re doing much the same (or have done so and are just reading this later, as I am typing this earlier). Either way, I hope you’re able to make good use out...

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...

I love webcomics. I’ve got a regular rotation I go through during the week or follow on places like Facebook. One such is The Awkward Yeti. I’m sure you know them. They make the comics with the anthropomorphic organs, showing how each bit of us seems to have a minds of its own and pulls [...

Look… it’s something we all do at some point. And we’ve all been “crop dusted” at some point. Maybe it was in class, or at a party, or in the office, or in an elevator, but it’s happened. So why not make a humorous game out of it? That’s what you’ve got...

Memes are pretty much an everyday part of our lives right now. Hell, I used a couple earlier today when talking with friends. Gaming is also a part of our everyday lives (well, if you’re visiting here, it probably is, anyway). So, why not mix the two? That’s when you get Memeology, a card...
