We’re just underway here at Day 2 of the CMON Expo 2015. Yesterday was a blast. This place was buzzing with excitement. I must say, it’s by far the busiest Friday ever at the show. It’s great to see how it’s grown over the past years. Over on the TGN Facebook page, we’ve...

I pulled my car up to the line. The engine roared in my ears as I revved it, tipping my hat to the power under the hood. I saw the other racers’ knuckles whiten. This is it. After all the small time street races and car shows, I was finally one race away from being […]...

People often ask me what my favorite part of working at TGN is. The answer is pretty easy. It’s getting to see new games as they’re in development and trying them out before just about anyone else. I’ve been doing this gig long enough now that games I tried out when they were early prototypes [&helli...

Gathering some friends together for Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) can be fun, but if your group is anything like mine, the position of Dungeon Master is not sought after. Everyone usually wants to play a carefully crafted character, which is understandable considering how much time can go into dev...

When it comes to fighting the Zombies, Abominations, and Necromancers of Guillotine Games’ upcoming Zombicide: Black Plague, strength of conviction and sharpness of blade are key, as our previous Survivor reveals have shown. But blade and brawn are not the only way the game’s heroes stand...

I love games that have an innovative design to them. There’s dozens, if not hundreds, of games where you play in a sci-fi universe, shooting at other sci-fi creatures. And how many games have elves and dwarves and goblins all having it out for one-another? Can anyone even count the number of superher...
