The end of civilization is bad enough. You’ve survived so far, but resources aren’t going to last the winter if they’re spread too thin. The various survivors are banding together and now attacking one-another in order to survive. That’s what’s happening in Warring Colon...

While it’s good to be back in the office and once more in my regular routine, after last week’s ordeal with my apartment, I’m still looking forward to the weekend. For those of us here in the US, it’s even (potentially) a long weekend, what with Monday being Memorial Day. So I...

When resources get scarce, people gather together to work as a team to survive. But what happens when to competing groups are looking to get the same resources? There might not be enough to go around. And so, even with all the other things that are happening, the groups have to fight with one-another...

And we’re back to Tuesday. I’d totally forgotten that yesterday was the first day of Spring. It certainly felt like it. The bit of a cold snap we’d had is gone. It’s supposed to get up to 80 today. We’ve switched the thermostat in the office from “heat” to &#...

You’ll get caught up in the… Wait, no. That’s not what’s going on here. Plaid Hat is not making a new version of the bb-shooting game (unfortunately…). Instead, they’re taking you back to the Specter Ops universe with Crossfire. Will you be able to protect the Raxx...

The folks over at Plaid Hat Games have been very busy lately. Some of that is because they are under the umbrella of Asmodee now. But some of that is because they’ve been developing new, deluxe expansions for Ashes, their fantasy card game. They have announced that there will be two new sets co...

And we’re back in the office after a long weekend. You know, when it comes to long weekends, I prefer having Monday off as opposed to Friday. Reason being is you’ve got a long weekend and then a short week. Gets you back to the weekend that much quicker. What can also help the week [&hell...

We’re expecting a bit of a warmup here in Atlanta over the next couple days. Low 50s today and into the mid-60s by the end of the week (that’s ~10 to ~16 for our Celsius-friends). Considering how cold it’s been (relatively speaking), it might be time to go outside and do some walkin...

I can already tell this week is going to be a long one. Not that Monday was bad, by any real stretch, but it just seemingly took forever. Even as I’m typing this now, it feels like I should be a lot closer to the end of the day than I am. But I’m sure […]...

Well, it’s certainly been an interesting day around here so far. This morning, various, seemingly random bits of the internet were out. Then, here at the office, the power went out for about 10-15min. Then that came back on, but the internet stayed out for about another half-hour. It’s be...
