It’s officially the holiday shopping season. Gamers all over the world will be getting and giving gifts. But what games should you buy? You don’t want to chance your money on something you won’t end up playing. As such, Reviews are a great way to save money, letting you know how a g...

Well, I did my Thanksgiving grocery shopping. It’s… well, I’m having 2 Thanksgivings, so there’s that. Turkeys, dressing, potatoes, sweet potatoes, stuff to make glazed carrots, rolls (from scratch), and a couple pumpkin pies. Because, you know, if anything’s worth doing...

Hey there, everyone. I hope you’re all having a great Saturday. I just got back from the grocery store (I’m typing this up a decent amount earlier than it is set to go live) so I can get ready to have some company over for a low-key Halloween party. I’m making cookies, chocolate-coa...

Well, my previous plans for the day sort of fell through. No worries, though. The day will not be ruined. I might just see if my N64, that I brought back from my parent’s place last time I visited, still works or not. If so, hello Ocarina of Time! But in the meantime, let’s get […]...

Mantic Games has been doing rather well with their Kickstarter campaign for Star Saga. As I type this, they’re less than $2k from reaching $200k, which will be 2x what their original goal for the campaign was. As such, they’ve made it through several stretch goals (4 to be specific, soon ...

It’s that time again, everyone. It’s Saturday. When you read this, it’ll be at least 2pm, Eastern. But for me, currently, it’s 5:30am. I’ve got a group of friends coming over for some gaming starting at 9am and have a bunch to get done before that. We’ll probably g...

And we’ve once more made it to the weekend successfully. The natural order has been maintained. I mean, just think if we woke up the day after Friday and it was, like, Wednesday or something. Man, that’d be a mess. But, as I said, that’s not happened. As such, we should get on with ...

Hey there everyone, We’ve made it to Saturday, so that once again means it’s time for a Review Roundup. A bit lighter this week than usual. I’m sure that’s due to Gen Con last weekend. I expect, though, that the next couple weeks will be pretty full of new reviews. I know seve...

Hey everyone. Gen Con has closed up shop for another year. The going consensus seems to be that it was a great show, but also an exceedingly fast one. I can certainly relate. It seems just this morning (which was actually Thursday morning), I was joking, “So, it’s Sunday tear-down, right?...

The final game we took a look at was also a cool bluffing/blind bidding game. It’s by some of the same designers that made Sheriff of Nottingham. So if you liked how those mechanics worked, you’ll probably like how this one works, too. It’s called Kronia and it’s all about get...

Hey there, everyone. I hope you’re enjoying your Saturday. Mine’s not the greatest, as I’m driving back from visiting my parents. Not that visiting my parents is bad. But the 8.5 hour drive back home is. Buh. No fun at all. But at least once I’m back home I’ll be able to...
