It’s Saturday. Usually, that would mean gaming. But Friday meant gaming for me, as a friend came over after work and we played some Guild Ball, Bunny Kingdom, and Apotheca. Great way to spend a Friday. So, what am I up to Saturday? Well, I’m in the CMON Offices, helping pack orders for th...

It’s feeling a lot like Saturday 2: Sat Harder (editor’s note: rework that title before publishing) here. Yesterday I spent much of the day at home, hanging out and working on my friend’s Guild Ball minis. He moved recently and a bunch of his stuff got jumbled and busted up. Plus, t...

So, it’s come to this… We all knew they’d show up eventually. Well, they’re here. Asmodee looks to be leading the group, having launched their Holiday sale. And, being Asmodee, it’s not just them, but all their subsidiaries like Z-Man, Fantasy Flight, Days of Wonder, and...

The real and the digital are blending more and more everyday. I mean. I’m real, but I work in digital all day. My office is as much this webspace as much as it’s the chair and flat surface my computer’s sitting on. That blending is spreading to our hobbies as well. Sure, we’ve...

What’s past is past. At least, we thought so, anyway. It would seem that’s not quite the case. The stream of time has whirlpools and eddies and you can head back to them over and over again. In fact, sometimes you need to, lest the whole thing jump the banks and change course. That’...

The Cities of Splendor expansion for… well… Splendor is now available. Actually, it should be The Cities of Splendor expansionS. Reason being is that it’s not just one new set of rules inside the box, but actually several. You can mix and match them as you see fit to add several who...

Cities of Splendor brings multiple expansions to your Splendor games. Considering the game is all about jewels and such, it’d be a mistake to leave out the far East and all the various wonders that lie there. Well, that’s just what the Far East expansion looks to rectify. It adds in three...

Many of my friends have kids. Some are yet still too young to really get into mommy and daddy’s gaming collections, but others have kids that are definitely getting into the swing of things tabletop-gaming-wise. So it’s cool to see games come out that are good for the family. Some of you ...

Cities of Splendor is four expansions for the popular game all in one box. They’ve already given us a look at the Trading Posts. This time around, we get a look at the cities. I mean, it is called Cities of Splendor, after all. It’d be a bit disappointing if it didn’t have cities in...

You’d think that time could just take care of itself. Once something’s done, it’s done. That’s not the case, though. Without regular monitoring, the whole time stream can unravel. In this case, the Reconquista of Spain isn’t going as it should. The T.I.M.E. Agency has to...

It’s murder most foul! Mostly because the Thames river’s not exactly the cleanest place in Victorian England. Ew. But along with murder, there’s plenty of other crimes happening in the streets of London to keep a detective busy. That’s where having some extra eyes behind magni...

What’s done is done. Or is it? The time stream isn’t as unalterable as we think it is. Things can go wrong that threaten all of existence as we know it. In this case, there’s a special stone in 15th-century Spain that must be brought to the future for study due to its supernatural i...

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...

The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain. And if you happen to trip while trying to acquire a strange stone that both the Christians and the Moors are looking for, during the time of the Reconquista, you would fall on the Spanish plain, too. That’s where (and when) you’ll be headed in ...
