Review Roundup

Man, it’s hard to think that Gen Con was a week ago. At this point, the show was more than half-over. How time flies. Hopefully everyone was able to recuperate well. I seem to have missed out on getting Con Crud. So that’s good. My feet were feeling just fine again by Tuesday. So that’s good, too. And, just yesterday, I finally caught up on the massive back-log of e-mails I’d had. Of course, as I finished that back log, more had come in. But I’m getting to those as well.

Anyway, as it’s Saturday, I’ve got your regular bit of reviews that I know you so desperate desire. I’m also looking forward to the coming weeks when I’m sure all the games people picked up at the show get reviewed.

This week we have: Barenpark, Whistle Stop, Flamme Rouge, 51st State: Scavengers Expansion, Herbaceous, CVlizations, and Cigar Box Battle Plush Gaming Mats.

I know. I know. I know. It’s Tuesday, not Saturday. But I was a tad busy Saturday, if you didn’t notice. 😉
So, after flying home yesterday, and then getting around 12 hours of sleep overnight, I’m looking to get back into the swing of things here. Most companies “shut down” during Gen Con, since they were all at the show, but there’s still plenty to catch up with from over the weekend. That starts with the reviews I know you all so desperately desire.

Today we have: Isle of Skye, Zoo Ball, Hunt the Ravager, Evolution, Arena of the Gods, Biotix, Secrets of the Lost Station, Spoils of War, Open Combat Sword Masters, Gothic, The Golden Sails, The Lost Expedition, FourCuatro, Lazer Ryderz, Loot the Body,

Usually, I’m all like, “hey! It’s Saturday! Go get your gaming on!” and, in a way, I’m still that. But I’m also, “It’s the Saturday before Gen Con… … … I Have So Many Things I Still Need To Do!!!” A couple people have asked me, “are you ready for the show?” My answer is, “you’re never ‘ready’ for Gen Con. You’re where you are in your attempt to be ready, and then the show starts happening, whether you got all you needed done or not.” But I am doing my best to have as much done as possible. That includes getting you your reviews I know you all so desperately desire.

This week we have: Nerdy Inventions, Incantris, Anachrony, Lucky Dogs, Wordsy, Deckscape: Test Time, A Dog’s Life, Titan Tactics, Frantic, Have at Thee, Upon a Fable, Sopio, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Shadow War: Armageddon, Massive Darkness, Oh My Goods, Nimbee, Pandemic Legacy Season 1, and The Lost Expedition.

Well, it’s Saturday. My day was looking like it might be a bit dull, but then a friend was like, “Hey, let’s have everyone come over and game.” and I was like, “done and done. I just need to type up a post first.” So, that’s the sacrifice I’m making for you all. I could be on my way to gaming, but I know how much you need to get your review articles. Such is my dedication to this site and its readers. 😛 😉

I know. I know. This was supposed to go up yesterday.
Well, WordPress has been flaky lately and it missed its posting window. Hence why it’s going up now with a reworded opening talking about it not being posted on Saturday instead of saying, “I’m going to the LGS and gonna pick me up a Minx for Guild Ball!”

Hey everyone. I’m sure a lot of you are reading this after getting back from Salute. If that’s the case… *envy-waves in your direction* I wish I’d been there. Maybe someday.

Yes, I know it’s Tuesday and not Saturday. But Saturday I was preoccupied wondering how he (Jonah) eats and breathes, and other science facts. And then Monday I was recouping from the weekend of laughing my ass off. So today’s going to be a bit of a catch-up day. Anyway, let’s get to it.

Hello, Saturday!
It… was quite a week, I have to say. Very busy. With all the goings-on for GAMA, I almost forgot that PAX East was going on. Hope everyone is having a good time out there. I’m, obviously, not there. I will be at Adepticon in a couple weeks, though. That’ll be fun. Love going back to Chicago (my homeland). But that’s a bit away.

Well, it seemingly took an eternity, but it is now Saturday.

Hello Saturday! How are you? Is everything going well? Of course it is! It’s Saturday!

So, let’s not wait around. Let’s get right to the reviews so we can get back to it being Saturday. Personally, I’m thinking of watching a movie and questioning Netflix’s algorithms in what “more like this” really means…

First part of the weekend is already a success. The pizza last night was pretty much everything I could’ve hoped for. It’s nice when a week-long cooking project turns out good (ok, the pizza doesn’t really take a week to make, but parts I was able to do ahead of time like render the bacon and such was done along the way, instead of doing it all last night). Today it’s all about the Board Game Day at the Milton Library. If you’re in the Atlanta area, stop on by.

But that’s for later (well, later to me now as I’m typing this, not later from the time you read this, since I’m typing this at 6am and will be gaming at 2pm when it posts).

Right now we’ve got reviews of: London, Colosseum, Ophidian 2360, Ore-Some, Critter Combat, Gloomhaven, Runebound: The Gilded Blade Expansion, Mage Wars: Arena Paladin vs Siren Expansion, Conquest of Speros, Castles of Burgundy, Flamme Rouge, and Ponzi Scheme.

Ah, Saturday.
Don’t know about you, but I’m going to be putting together a pair of Guild Ball players (Granite and Veteran Siren) that Ray picked up for me at LVO. Then I’m gonna make my own protein bars (like Clif bars, for those that know about them) since I’m trying to get from the 110 stone that I currently am down to maybe an even 100. I also finished watching Black Books, so I need to find something else to watch. But that’s as may be. What you all want right now are reviews. Let’s get those to you.

Today we have: Multiuniversum, Multiuniversum: Project Cthulhu, Hero Realms, Hero Realms Character Packs, The Mountains Rise, Legends of Andor: Journey to the North, Band Manager: Backstage Clash, Age of Sigmar, Imhotep, Cavern Tavern, Superhot, Forged in Steel, The Civilized Guide to Tabletop Gaming, Pirate Lords, and Steel Arena.

Hello Saturday. The Chuck Mangione from yesterday has switched over to Danger Doom, because that’s the sort of mood I’m in. Other than that… not much happening on this side of the screen. A chill Saturday on a chilly Saturday here in Atlanta (seriously, we’ve actually got winter for a couple days before it’s supposed to get back up to the 60s next week). But for the moment, let’s get you some game reviews.

Today we have: Runebound: Fall of the Dark Star, Runebound: Caught in a Web, Castle Panic: Engines of War, Pests, Gloomhaven, Mysterium Digital Edition, Insider, Hands in the Sea, Villages of Valeria, and Covert.

Hey everyone. Congratulations as you’ve made it to the weekend. Saturday is here and that means it’s time to sit back and relax some. Hopefully you’ve got something gaming-related going on. I might be working (on a super-secret project that’s set to revolutionize the gaming world!!! … 😉 ), but it’s still at least gaming related. I also have a fresh 12-pack of Mt. Dew Pitch Black. So it’s a good day. But anyway, let’s get to those reviews I know you all love so much.

It’s another beautiful day here in Atlanta. The clouds are out. It’s raining. There was dense fog this morning.
What? You don’t think that’s beautiful weather?
You know what they call a place that has nothing but “beautiful, sunny days”? The desert. Relatively few things live there.
You know what they call a place that has rain all the time? The rain forest, some of the most bio-diverse and bio-dense areas of the planet! So there!
Ok… that got weirdly antagonistic for no reason. Maybe I should just go check out some game reviews. Yeah. That’s a good idea.

Today we have: Everzone, Portal, The Captain Is Dead, Triumvirate of the Imperium – Inquisitor Greyfax, Triumvirate of the Imperium – Belisarius Cawl, Raise Your Goblets, The Three Little Pigs, Concordia, Adrenaline, Hands in the Sea, Neuroshima Hex iPad Edition, 7 Wonders: Duel, Klask, Rise of Mafia, and Cavern Tavern.

But I hope it means a lot of gaming for you. But what games? Well, how about checking out some reviews to know that you buy just the ones you’ll like.

Looks like a lot of reviewers are taking a break for the holidays. We’ve just got one for you today.
