The busy week of being busy continues on. Yesterday was more of the same. The one thing that’s nice is that, sure, it’s been busy, but it’s been the good, productive kind of busy. So even though it’s a huge checklist I’m working through, things are being checked off. The...

When playing Dungeons & Dragons, your class is pretty important. Even your race or alignment really isn’t quite as important for your character as your class is. Those others might come up from time to time, but your class comes up pretty much any time you roll the dice. As such, picking j...

Sometimes you want to get your D&D adventuring on, but you just can’t seem to get all your players together. Or you don’t quite have the time to have a full session. Well, before, you might just have to call it quits. But with the Dragonfire deck-building game coming from Catalyst Ga...

So, I’m sure many of you got copies of Runewars over the weekend. What’re your thoughts on it? We got a copy here in the office. Haven’t had much of a chance to really look into it yet (been busy with lots of other things), beyond simply looking over the components. Well, we know th...

There are some core game books out there that give you both the player’s and GM’s info all in one book. Those are cool, and I can see how it’s really helpful, but sometimes it’s a bit overkill. That’s where just a player’s guide can come in. And that’s what M...

When many of us think of a “Fantasy RPG world,” we think of something rather Tolkien-esque. But there are plenty of other fantasy writers out there that can be used as inspiration for your game. One such is Lord Dunsany. His works are certainly different from Tolkien’s. Now, you can...

Your army is determined to take that hill. Why do you want it? Because, apparently, your opponents want it. And you’ll be damned if you let even the most insignificant hill fall into enemy hands. But the fight isn’t going well, and you need to change up your strategy. Maybe grab some merc...

It’s always cool to see new artwork coming out for the games we play. Will it be some cool soldier in armor? Maybe a monk in robes? Or maybe it’ll be a spider monkey. In the case of the new artwork preview for Bushido‘s Wave 35 from GCT Studios, it’s a bit of that. In-particul...

Though I’ve not gone in quite some time, I do enjoy camping. Going out there into the woods and getting back to nature. Just gotta watch out for all the forest creatures and make sure you’re not invading their territory. It’s bad enough with bears and cougars and such, but then you&...

Most board games out there are competitive. All the players are looking to be the one that wins. However, sometimes you aren’t wanting to take down your opponents, but team up and take on the game, itself. Or, everyone cancels on you and you find yourself wanting to game, but nobody’s aro...
