There’s seemingly endless ways that you can remake Love Letter. The quick-playing game from AEG has a lot of variations out there. Though I think this is the first one with mind-melting insanity thrown in. They say love will drive you crazy, but in Lovecraft Letter, it’s more the elder go...

The fellows over at AEG love having fun with the expansions for Smash Up. I mean, the whole point is to take popular memes and themes and… well… smash them together and see what happens. There’s been cats, princesses, and (of course) Cthulhu, among others. Well, this time around we&...

The Valley of Life is under a terrible curse. It’s only through the dedicated healing powers of the druids that they will be able to save the inhabitants. But caution must be taken, for the curse will drain those that carelessly use their powers. No, it’s the wisest who will be able to br...
