Game storage is something we all have fought with at some point, I’m sure. This can particularly be troublesome with games that have lots of expansions. You want to have all the parts together, but the original box the game came in might not really be able to hold everything. So you are forced ...

Who you gonna call? Well, I’m kinda hungry, so I was thinking about calling for a pizza. But if it’s rivers of pink slime that causes people to go crazy, or paintings taking over people, you might just want to call the Ghostbusters. And you’ll be able to soon, as Cryptozoic has anno...

One thing about Gen Con is that many companies will have the newest of their releases available for the first time at the show. Want to get a game before it’s made it to your LGS? Gen Con’s a good place to pick it up. Cryptozoic will certainly have some pre-releases at the show. Like [&he...

I’ve heard a lot of good things about the Attack on Titan anime. But, with so many things, I’ve just not gotten around to watching it. I might just do so, though, as it seems to be a favorite of many of my friends. Also, it might help me with strategy in Attack on Titan: […]...

I wish I had a chance to watch more Rick & Morty. I’ve seen several episodes, but need to get them on DVD or something. Though, even with my limited knowledge, I feel I’d still get a kick out of Rick & Morty: Anatomy Park, a new board game coming from Cryptozoic and Cartoon Netw...

Villains aren’t really known for doing team-ups. Most of the time, they tend to work on their own. But sometimes they realize that they, alone, won’t be able to finish their goals like they want. In such times, tenuous alliances have been formed. You get to do just that same thing in The ...

Sometimes it’s good to be bad. Sure, most games have you playing as the goody-two-shoes heroes. But that can get old after a while. Well, thankfully, there’s occasionally times where you get to play as the villains in a game. Cryptozoic is letting you do just that with the next Crossover ...

Long-time readers of TGN know that I love giant robots. At Gen Con this past year, one of the booths I came across was Weta Workshop and their GKR: Heavy Hitters game. The game really caught my attention, especially since GKR stands for “Giant Killer Robots” and all. They had said they we...

The Batman: The Animated Series show was one of the highest quality cartoon products I feel I’ve seen. It really captured the dark, dense world of Gotham and the inhabitants thereof. Though we watched it as kids (or, at least, I watched it as a kid), it really was full of grown-up themes and si...

I lived in St. Louis when the “poker craze” of the 2000s hit. A lot of the guys at my LGS took to going to the casino boats not far from the shop to get in on the action. We’d also occasionally have nickel-ante poker night at my friend’s place. It was fun and being […]...
