It’s Saturday. I’m hanging out in the bear’s den here. LGS has a huge tourney going on, so I’m just gonna hang out here. So it’s me, John Mulaney, and typing up the Review Roundup. Literally Netflix and chill (no innuendo). Everyone needs just some relaxed days occasiona...

“But Polar Bear! Fruit Ninja‘s been out for a while! And it’s a digital game!” I hear you scream at your screens (I also know your browser history. Hey, whatever floats your boat. I don’t judge). Yes, Fruit Ninja is an incredibly popular mobile game where you must cut fr...

I haven’t played a collectable game in quite some time. Mostly I’ve just not had the time to keep up with them. But back when I did, my favorite format to play in was draft. It’s seat-of-your-pants gaming. You go in not knowing what your deck was going to consist of and leave it to ...

Saturday night’s alright for gaming. Saturday afternoon’s alright for gaming. Saturday morning’s alright for gaming. Pretty much all of Saturday (Saturday, Saturday) is good for gaming. I’m… not currently gaming. I’m baking (yes, again), getting ready for an early ...

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...

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...

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...

Hey everyone. We’ve made it around to another weekend. I said I was going to probably be doing some baking. Well, I’ve got some magic cookie bars cooling right now. I love these things… probably too much… *looks at my stomach* … definitely too much. But issues with my wa...

The color yellow, at least in certain cultures, has often been associated with being cowardly. “What are ya, yellah?” is something you’ve possibly heard in some old western movie. But the yellow cards in Star Wars: Destiny are hardly a bunch of cowards. Empire at War proves that wit...

Let’s see if the system decides to eat this one or not. Anyway, it’s Saturday, and that means I’m happy. I’ve been doing various domestic things this morning in order to be ready for when a friend comes over for some gaming (Guild Ball and Ascension are the most-likely games t...

Well, it would seem as though the system took a vacation over the long holiday weekend, as it ate the Review Roundup post. Such things happen occasionally. It’s alright… I’ll just make a new one this morning for you. Today we have: Dragons Hoard, Andoria Battlefields, Masters of Ele...

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...

You know, there’s a big difference when previewing items. By that, I mean, if some company were to show you 1/10 of a new figure they were working on, you’d get, like, a kneecap or something. If someone were previewing their new rules set, but only showed you 1/10 of it, you might get a [...

I’m a big fan of getting the most value for the money. Well, when you get the Multitude Game Set, you get 50 games all in one box. That’s… quite a lot. The set comes with 72 cards and 50 dice, and each of the games that you can play utilizes both in some fashion. […]...

Got another of those “games changing hands” stories for you. This time around, it’s Mage Company. They’ll be taking over Goblin Dice from Gaga Games. In the game, you play as a goblin in a race. But it’s not just making sure you beat your opponents, it’s about maki...

Grand Admiral Thrawn. Yeah, I just got a little giddy there, too. I might just have to build me a Star Wars: Destiny deck that has him as one of the characters. I’ll be able to do so once Star Wars: Destiny’s newly-announced set, Empire at War, hits store shelves. That’s going to be...

While Batman takes care of much of the crime problem in Gotham, he doesn’t work alone. Commissioner Gordon certainly does all he can from within a system that seems tailor-made for corruption and ineptitude. He’s getting a card and dice in the upcoming Dice Masters set, as is it Bat-Signa...

Power has a tendency to corrupt those with it. If you are a Force-user and you succumb to corruption, you’re on a train headed right to the Dark Side. But hey, shooting lightning out of your hands is pretty cool, if you ask me. I’d do it, if I could. Anyway, Spirit of Rebellion for [&hell...
