It’s been a long week. Well, ok, technically it’s been as long as pretty much every other week. But it seems that it really slowed down starting Wednesday afternoon. I’m certainly ready for the weekend, anyway. Gotta refuel in order to make it there, though. So I’m going to ch...

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not really afraid of bugs, but I don’t go out of my way to deal with them, either. I’ll squish a spider if I need to, but I’d prefer if they just stayed where they’re at and left me alone. Well, most people in Terrinoth would also pre...

Descent is a one-vs-many game. While most players take on the role of a hero, one gets to play as the Overlord. They’re basically the “Dungeon Master” player. But unlike an RPG, they’re not out there to just tell a good story for the players, they’re there to win! Well, ...

Some board games can seem a bit intimidating in terms of “moving parts” for it. And while they might really be all that complicated, having a digital version that does some of the bookkeeping for you is pretty handy. Such is the case with the digital version of Talisman. There’s als...

It’s Friday, everyone. Keep calm and we’ll get through this just fine and then move onward into the bliss that is the Weekend. My gaming is going to start early, as when I get out of here, I’m going to an Irish Pub nearby for some bangers and mash. Afterward, it’s back to my p...

Descent is a game of nearly infinite expansions (so it sometimes seems). The original game had quite a lot released for it. Then came the new edition. Well, to make sure you can play all those old expansions with your new rules, Fantasy Flight Games has been coming out with those sets, but with updat...

My wife asked me why I carry my gun around the house. I said it was because of Decepticons. She laughed. I laughed. The toaster laughed. I shot the toaster. That’s not originally my joke, though I wish it was. I also don’t have a wife, or own a gun… or a toaster, for that […]...

Terrinoth just can’t catch a break, it would seem. Just when your adventurers have gone out and solved one set of problems, a new one shows up. Or, in this case, two new ones show up. Fantasy Flight Games has announced two new expansion packs for Runebound....

Descent had quite a lot of expansions come out for it before it changed to the 2nd edition. Making sure that people get to play with all those cool figures if they like the new edition has been a priority for Fantasy Flight Games. Having said that, I’m letting you know that they’ve releas...

It would seem as though The Bespin Gambit isn’t the only thing on the minds of Fantasy Flight Games when it comes to Imperial Assault. Today they’re showing off a trio of new expansion packs, two of which bring rather iconic characters to your gaming table. They’re the Obi-Wan Kenob...

I’ve always been a fan of a nice walk through the fog. As a morning person, this gets to happen on several occasions. However, if that fog is filled with undead, it’s not always such a good thing to be walking around in. However, walking around in it is just what your heroes in Descent [&...

The Star Wars universe is a rather violent place. I mean, it’s Star Wars, not Star Gardening Club. As such, the characters you play in the RPG are probably going to be getting into battles on a regular basis. You’re going to need every advantage possible to make it out of the galactic civ...

The characters of the Star Wars universe are what drive the action forward. Sure, there’s millions in the Rebel Alliance, for example, but it’s the heroes like Luke, Han, and Leia that we focus on. Such is also the case in Imperial Assault. The new Bespin Gambit expansion also brings in n...

TIE Fighters, as Obi-Wann reminded us, are short-range fighters. Only a couple models come with hyperdrives. So to get from system to system, or even quickly within the same system, they need to hitch a lift. One such craft they can join up with is the Imperial Assault Carrier. We’ve got them f...

I love cyberpunk. Neuromancer and Snow Crash are two of my favorite books. Bladerunner is a favorite movie (even if they don’t really go into the ‘net in the movie, the overall ambiance is very cyberpunk). I even love Lawnmower Man. As such, when NetRunner originally came out, I dove in h...
