Ok, so I was being a little facetious, saying that we were expecting a Snowpocalypse here in Atlanta, with the little bit of snow that was coming down at the time… but… yeah… we had a bit of a Snowpocalypse. That was the view from my front door last night and it was still much [&hel...

It’s feeling a lot like Saturday 2: Sat Harder (editor’s note: rework that title before publishing) here. Yesterday I spent much of the day at home, hanging out and working on my friend’s Guild Ball minis. He moved recently and a bunch of his stuff got jumbled and busted up. Plus, t...

Cold and Flu season is coming up. But on the gaming table, it’s already here. Pandemic Legacy Season 2 is now available. And with how people reacted to Season 1, I can only imagine what sort of reaction this new set will garner. Hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s at least one ...

The thing that sets Legacy-style games apart from others is that the game will literally change each time you play. What you do in one session will have an effect on the next. Card packs will be opened. Other cards will be removed. The game board will be altered. People went crazy over this aspect [&...

It’s not quite cold and flu season yet, but that just means it’s time to stock up on disease-fighting knowledge. It also means to get prepped for the upcoming 2018 Pandemic Survival Series. Yes, Pandemic is usually a cooperative affair, but in this format, you’re racing against anot...

Floods. They’re a problem that’s been facing humanity essentially since the first group of huts were set too close to a rising stream. In The Netherlands, there’s a whole series of levees, reservoirs, and pumping stations that keeps the country dry. Well, when those start to fail, s...

It’s early dawn here at Gen Con Day 2. I… wish I could tell you what happened to Day 1. I swear it was just here a minute ago. At least, that’s how it feels. I can tell you that the hall is busy. But what would you expect from a show that’s sold out? […]...

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, &...

It starts with a cough or a runny nose. Soon, people’s organs are melting. Ok, maybe that’s a bit extreme, but it’s still sort of what’s going on in Pandemic. People fawned all over Pandemic Legacy: Season 1. But where there’s a 1, there’s a 2. As such, Z-Man Games...

Having just gotten over being sick the early part of this week, posting a story about a new Pandemic game coming out just seems to book-end the event just fine. Well, this fall, Z-Man Games is coming out with Pandemic Iberia. It’s going to be just a one-print-run game, so if you want to save [&...

I swear this show is just screaming by this year. It’s already the end of Day 3. Today will be the last day for Gen Con 2016. As usual for Gen Con Saturday, it was a whirlwind of activity. There was roaming the hall, taking photos most of the morning and early afternoon. Then there […]...

It’s cold and flu season here. You know, you get the sniffles, you grab some orange juice and maybe a swig of cough syrup, then before you know it, you’re missing a couple days of work with what feels like the end of the world of sickness. Well, while you may go a little loopy […]...

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 project...

Z-Man Games has started taking pre-orders for Pandemic Legacy. They’ve got two versions available, Red and Blue (but I think that’s where the resemblance to Pokemon ends). In this cooperative game, players must try and keep 4 deadly diseases at bay for a whole year. You must balance betwe...
