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 thatR...

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 downR...

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, &...

Blame Canada (Day), but it seems that the post got eaten by the system. It happens occasionally, but it’s alright. We can rebuild it. We can make it stronger, faster, better… Or mostly the same but with this new intro. Anyway, this week we have: Werewords, Caverna: Cave vs Cave, Not Alone...

There have been many great games over the years that have, for one reason or another, gone out of print. For many games, that could spell the end, with later generations of gamers never having a chance to give them a play, due to their scarcity. However, some games get another life as a company [&hel...

It’s the Saturday before Gen Con. A week from now we’ll be shoulder-deep in the show. Of course, that means this weekend is full of running around like a chicken with its head cut off, trying to get everything done before heading to Indy. But, even with all the brouhaha, there’s tim...
