Review Roundup

And we’ve once more made it to the weekend successfully. The natural order has been maintained. I mean, just think if we woke up the day after Friday and it was, like, Wednesday or something. Man, that’d be a mess. But, as I said, that’s not happened. As such, we should get on with the regular Saturday routine and get you some reviews.

Today we have: Kill the King, Captain Sonar, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition, The Dragon & Flagon, No Honor Among Thieves, Via Nebula, Behind the Throne, Star Trek: Ascendancy, Antarctica, Costa Rica, Heroes of Normandie iOS, Lost Woods, Battle Gnomes, and Ice Cool.

Review Roundup

Hey there, everyone. Can you feel it? That’s the feeling of the weekend. Isn’t it just grand? My Facebook feed’s full of pictures of people at all sorts of conventions and events. Me? I’m taking a “weekend off,” such as it were. I’m happy to live vicariously through those photos, instead choosing to just chill at the bear cave here, sip on some Dew, and do some gaming of the electronic variety (hey, I’m allowed!).

I’m also getting your Review Roundup ready. Obviously, when you read this, it will be done. But at the exact moment I’m typing this, it’s still a work in progress.
… wait… ok, yeah, now it’s done.

Anyway, today we have articles on: Rockopolis, Star Trek Panic, Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu, Stick to Colours, Carrotia, Karuba, Prospectus, Tiki Island, Winner’s Circle, Flick ‘Em Up, and Grifters.

Review Roundup

So, since I spend all my regular workdays gaming, I will often step away from it on my time off. You know, you don’t want to get burned out on a thing. However, last weekend and this, I’ve been all-out gaming just about every chance I can! Last week was game day at the Milton, GA. library. Yesterday a friend came over for some Guild Ball. Today I’m headed to another friend’s (and co-worker) house for more gaming, along with Italian beef and fresh-baked cookies.

So that’s what I’m doing. How about you (besides reading this article)?

Speaking of this article, this week we have: Deadzone 2nd Edition, Manhattan Project: Chain Reaction, Mission to Mars, Tumult Royale, Expo 1906, The Cohort, MODX, The Siblings Trouble, Super Motherload, 13 Days: The Cuban Missile Crisis, Fury Of Dracula, Dead of Winter, Potion Explosion, Dastardly Dirigibles, Apollo XIII, Snow Tails, Kune v Lakia, Deathbot Derby, Game of Train, and Ice Cool.

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

Hello to everyone on this cold Saturday. I hope you’re having a good day. I’m cracking nuts… for that fruitcake I’ve been telling you all about all week. They don’t use the phrase, “nutty as a fruitcake” for nothing, you know. I hope you have your own projects you’re working on, be they gaming-related, culinary-related, or just whatever else you feel like doing.

What I feel like doing at the moment, though, is taking a small break from making small breaks (these are the jokes, people!) and share with you the reviews I’ve come across in the past week.

Today’s articles feature: Black Hat, Ships, Above and Below, Traders of Osaka, The Bloody Inn, Hangtown, Rum & Bones, The World of Smog, Avarium Academy, The Builders: Antiquity, T.I.M.E. Stories, Bang! The Dice Game, Mysterium, Fury of Dracula, Pandemic Legacy, Between Two Cities, El Grandulon for Freebooters Fate, Opel Blitz by Rubicon Models, Star Wars Armada Wave 2, DreadBall Xtreme, and Pathfinder Battles: Red Dragon Evolution Set.

We’re getting back into the “regular routine” here after Gen Con. It really was a great show. Lots of good friends. Lots of good gaming. Lots of… a lot of stuff. It’s always sad to have to pack up and head home… even though you’re totally exhausted. Hopefully you had a good show, if you were able to go. If not, well, there’s always next year.

But as for that “getting back into the routine” thing, we’ve got our regular Tuesday feature of all the podcasts we’ve found over the past week.

This time we have: Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 183: Movement in Games, Game Classy 93: Steve of the Rings, World’s End Radio Episode #87 – Prime Time, Gamers Lounge ep. 111 – It’s a Palindrome, Screaming Heretic Ep 85 – All Good Things, and Dog and Thimble Podcast Ep. 10: Chew Review.
