Just about all of us have played some version of Munchkin in our time as gamers. It’s a fun, little card game from Steve Jackson that takes the usual tropes of dungeon delving (or going into space, or pirates, or faeries, or a hundred other things it’s spun off into) and turns them on the...

Back when I read comics, I was an X-fan. I mostly read X-Factor, but since I also read Wolverine, so that means I read some X-Men as well. And, of course, I watched the cartoon as well. As such, I’ve always been more a Marvel fan than a DC fan. So, even though I don’t […]...

The Munchkin game lets players head into deep, dark dungeons, take out monsters, and grab their loot. Well, the world of Wonderland isn’t necessarily the same as a deep, dark dungeon, but there are still plenty of weird things to behold and treasures to grab. So the two fit together rather well...

I don’t particularly have anything against DC Comics, but I’ve always just enjoyed Marvel more. That’s extended from the comics I read in the 90s through the products I see coming out that have the Marvel license.

So, if I could have any pet I wanted, I’d want a whole herd of polar bears. However, I’m sure something like that would require very specific zoning laws and whatnot. So, in the meantime, I’d want a whole pack of dogs. Granted, my apartment’s a bit small, so I should probably ...
