Aaaaaaand we’ve landed back on Monday. The first Monday of Autumn (or Spring, for you Southern-Hemisphere-ers). Too bad it’s still really warm up here. I don’t consider 90 degrees to be very “fall-like.” But we’ll get back to those cooler temperatures eventually. U...

We’re standing (well, I’m sitting) at the threshold to the weekend. With any luck, yours will be filled with all manner of gaming. I’ve yet to fully decide what I’ll be up to. But that’s sometimes half the fun. But whatever I end up doing, I should fuel up on bite-sized ...

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...

What’s the best animal? Ok, I mean, we know it’s the polar bear. But beyond that. What’s the next-best animal? Well, in The Champion of the Wild, you take on the role of an animal trainer that can communicate directly with the animals in your care, and you’re looking to train ...

The week continues along. We’ve made it halfway through! The weekend will be here before we know it. At least, I think it will, since it seems this week is going by pretty quickly. Seems I keep looking down at my clock and going, “man, it’s (time) already?” Yesterday seemed to...

No, they’re not dice that are something like 15′ on each size. That’d be pretty awesome (though probably not very practical for your games), but Titan Dice is a new dice game from Eagle-Gryphon Games. In the game, vicious mythic creatures have escaped and it’s up to you to cap...

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...

Well, it’s happened. The world has once more come to an end. Damnit, Todd! I told you to not push that button labeled, “don’t push this button.” But the nuclear bombs have fallen and it’s time to see what’s left. Unfortunately, that means dealing with all the radio...

Studies show that cheese works on the brain much like narcotics and you can be, basically, addicted to it. Well, I certainly know that I am addicted to cheese. It’s really hard to ever say that I’ve had “enough” of it. So I’m always on a cheese quest, of sorts. But I can...

And here we are, back at Monday. Thinking back, this is the first Monday in the last 3 that I’ve been at the office. Last week was the storm, and the week before was Labor Day. My Monday shirts got a bit of a vacation, I suppose. But they’re back it today, and that means […]...

You belong in a zoo! Can’t say I’ve ever had that actually yelled at me, but I do enjoy going to the zoo (though it’s been quite a long time since I’ve been to one). As one would expect, I tend to head to the polar bear enclosure and hang out there. If I could […]...

A DM, in my opinion, can never have too many resources at their disposal when it comes time to run the game. Pre-made adventures are a nice way to get your game going without having to spend hours and hours of prep time on it. You just open up to Page 1 and go. In […]...

It’s already Wednesday. I don’t know why that should be such a shock. I mean, yesterday was Tuesday. I guess being at home on Monday makes it feel like the week’s moving along a bit faster. But if we’re going to be keeping up this pace, we should probably stock up on bite-size...

Not every Kickstarter campaign makes it to their funding goal on the first try. There’s no shame in that, as I have seen many campaigns retool and make it even further the second time around than they could’ve ever hoped the first time. With any luck, that will be the case for Dawn of the...
