The work week continues along. We’re in that second-half slide towards the weekend. And I’m excited for it, since I’ve got a great weekend lined up. My new gaming mat should be here today or tomorrow, and I’ve got lots of baking to do. I mean, what could be better? Nothing. Th...

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&#...

Worlds of Empyrea, written by Frank Mentzer (famed Dungeons & Dragons author) is a setting book with a difference. It’s not written for just one system. Or two. Or three. It’s written with rules for 10 different gaming systems. If you’re wanting a new place for your game to be ...

It’s halfway over. The work week is about half-done for most of us. With any luck, you’re looking forward to a weekend of gaming. I might be doing some of that. But I can guarantee that I’ll be doing some baking. Actually, that’ll start tomorrow. We’re having a chili and...

I’m a huge fan of innovation in game worlds. There’s lots of fantasy RPGs, walking-undead board games, and sci-fi skirmish games out there. What you don’t see a lot of are games where you and the other players are mice who form a club and build their own motorcycles. But that’...

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...
