It’s about to get really warm here in Georgia. We’ve had a mild winter, and I can only imagine what the summer’s going to be like. Best to think about colder times. Though, when thinking about them, not letting your mind be melted into insanity by Great Old Ones is probably a good i...

Well, I’m coming to realize that this is not going to be a regular week. With all the prep and hype for GAMA last week, even though I realize that I leave for Adepticon this week, it’s still sort of a, “oh yeah, that…” instead of, y’know, “Oh yeah! That!!R...

Wherever gamers get together to game, there’s going to be the question of, “who is the best at this game?” So you pair off and fight it out (on the tabletop, of course), looking to work your way to the top table and come out the champion. Nothing wrong with the good, healthy spirit ...

When you go out into the ocean, you can never be truly certain what is lurking just below the waves underneath your boat. That’s why you’re not going to find me out there. No, I don’t actually believe that Cthulhu is down there. But at the same time, I’m not ruling it out, eit...

The Walking Dead has gone through many characters over the course of its run. Some you’re happy to see make it away from the horrors of the zombies and murderous other humans. Others, you’re happy to see them get eaten. But that’s half the fun. Well, Mantic is letting you bring a bu...

The powers of the Great Old Ones are… well… great. Those that look to undo their nefarious schemes must be strong as steel mentally, physically, and emotionally. Any less and you’re left a gibbering waste or a red smear on the pavement. It takes a special kind of person to do it, an...

A popular genre for all gaming is the zombie apocalypse. And let’s face it, a lot of us have imagined ourselves in such a situation. Of course, we feel we’d be one of the survivors, looking to do battle against the undead masses. And that’s just what sort of fantasy you get to play ...
