Woo! Saturday! Woo!
As you’re reading this, I’m over at the LGS, hanging out and just taking it easy. I’m hoping you’re doing much the same (or have done so and are just reading this later, as I am typing this earlier). Either way, I hope you’re able to make good use out of the day.
As for reviews. Of course we have those for you.
Today we have: Anachrony, Elo Darkness, Don’t Mess With Cthulhu, Dragoon, Test of Honour Samurai Warband, Wreck and Ruin, Lignum, Downforce, Go Nuts for Donuts, Age of Rivals iOS, 1846: Race for the Midwest, Train Heist, and Posthuman.
Inside our minds is a whole other world. It can often feel like its at conflict with itself, as our various emotions fight with one-another for control. Will the forces of Gloom manage to take over and leave us in a sad state, or will Bliss be able to fight off their advances and let us live a happy life? That’s what you’ll be deciding in Cerebria, a new area control game that’s up on Kickstarter now.
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.
It’s also October.
I mean, seriously, can it really get that much better than this? Oh, yeah, *puts on some Type O Negative while working on the post* There we go.
Anyway, you want ’em, so here’s your reviews for the week.
Today we have: Patchwork, Epic Roll: Eclipse, Arcadia Quest, Tutti Frutti, True Messiah, Eclipse, Trickerion: Legends of Illusion, Dodge Dice, Grifters, Codenames: Pictures, and Agamemnon.
What a glorious day. What cannot be achieved on such a day as Saturday?
Well, I know I can be working on various articles for the site. Hopefully you’re getting in some gaming, like I am, too.
At the moment, though, we’ve got ourselves the Review Roundup.

It’s another Saturday. Hopefully you’ve got something fun going on.

Mindclash Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for their new board game, Trickerion. In it, players play as magicians and illusionists looking to be the David Copperfield of them all (he’s still a thing, right? I remember watching his specials all the time when I was younger. My sister was a huge fan). The campaign has already passed their funding goal with still 28 days to go.
Though now that I’m thinking about magic, I’m thinking Gob Bluth, and now that I’m thinking Gob Bluth, I’m thinking The Final Countdown…
