Welcome back again to Saturday. I hope you’re enjoying it. I’m being a busy bear around the place, looking to finally tidy the den up after the long winter. Ok, so it’s not really been winter for several weeks now, so color me a little lazy to actually get this project started. But before I start dusting, vacuuming, and whatnot, I need to schedule up this post to get you all the reviews I know you so desperate desire. So, for all those unfortunate enough to not be at Salute, let’s see what we’ve got.

Today’s articles include: Gruff: Stuff of Nightmares, Time of Crisis, Exorcism at the House of Monkton Falls, Paperback: Unabridged Expansion, The Bark Side, Tak, BetaBotz: Byte of Passage, The City of Kings, and The Grimm Forest.

The week continues along. We’ve made it to Tuesday. I hope your week started off alright. The cold, blustery Monday has turned into a warmer Tuesday morning. Also, when I went out to my car yesterday, I realized my normally blue car had a distinctly yellow/green/gold tinge to it. Yes, I’ve seen some of it hanging around for a while, but the real pollen season looks like it’s starting. Best idea is to stay inside, make sure the air filters are fresh, and watch the pollen haze blow by outside. Best to listen to some podcasts while we wait for this to blow over (literally).

This week we have: Singled Out Episode 63: Talking Game Plans and Veteran Gutter; Epic Gaming Night Episode 149: Gama with Mark Streed!; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 119: Rising Sun; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 244: What a Tanker!; Exploding Dice Radio Episode 9; Game Classy Episode 159: Recorded Live from Adepticon; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 140: Noria, Clank!

It was a rainy Monday here in GA. Not the way a lot of people like to start off the week, I’m sure. Honestly, I love the rain. Had a good thundershower overnight, too. That was rather nice.

I’m actually half-Irish. My grandfather on my mother’s side was actually an Irish-Catholic cop in Chicago, because stereotypes come from somewhere. So, while you’re out having your corned beef and cabbage (which is more American than Irish, but whatever), let’s also get you some reviews.

Saturday. How wonderful a day. I hope you’re taking advantage of it. I ran a bunch of errands this morning. Now I’m working on painting, of all things. I can’t tell you the last time I painted minis. It’s been quite a while.

Helloooooooo, Saturday. You know you’re my favorite. I hope the other days of the week get jealous, but you’re just so great.

Woo! Saturday!
And I’m finally mostly over being sick. You never realize just how much you are thankful that you can breathe through your nose or take a couple breaths without coughing until that’s exactly the opposite of how you’re doing. Ah well.

It’s back to the daily grind. An extra day off was rather nice. And it’s never a bad time to reflect on where the US was and how far we’ve come, but we still have so far to go. But, in the meantime, gaming. (hey, I don’t like the site being political, so there). Seeing as it’s Tuesday, the work week got a bit of a jump with that day off. So let’s see if we can make this short week feel shorter by listening to gaming podcasts while we go about our daily routines.

Well, we’re a day and change into 2018. I hope yours is going well. I’ve already managed to stub my toe so bad that I lost a toenail and whanged my elbow good enough that my left hand’s still a bit tingly. So, needless to say, I’m off to a great start. At this rate, I expect to be in a full body cast by March. O,o
So, while I still have full use of my appendages, let me get you some podcasts to listen to for this first week of the year.

It’s Saturday. Usually, that would mean gaming. But Friday meant gaming for me, as a friend came over after work and we played some Guild Ball, Bunny Kingdom, and Apotheca. Great way to spend a Friday. So, what am I up to Saturday? Well, I’m in the CMON Offices, helping pack orders for the holiday sale. Yeah, seems people loved those deep cuts. And since I feel partially responsible (as the one they tasked with actually changing the prices on all those things), I felt it only right to help pack everything up. But while I get orders together, I know you’re here for a heaping helping of reviews. Heaping helping because we didn’t have a Roundup last week, due to the holiday.

So, this week we’ve got: Near and Far, Queendomino, The Oregon Trail: Hunt for Food, Dog Might Games Traveler Dice Tower, Campy Creatures, Camel Up, A Game of Thrones Card Game, Colt Express, Truth Bombs, Ex Libris, Star Trek: 5-Year Mission, Slide Blast, Happy Salmon, DownForce, Smash Up iOS, Professor Evil and the Citadel of Time, Ink Monsters, The Quest for El Dorado, Reef Route, Crabs, Werewords, Fog of Love, Museum Heist, Crosstalk, Potato Pirates, Tulip bubble, The Chameleon, Ulm, Asset Drop Subscription Box, Tortuga 1667, Dwar7s Fall, The Expanse, Tokyo Highway, and Ulock!

In a way, it’s Wednesday, because it’s the middle of the work week for me. In a way, it’s Thursday, because it’s the penultimate day of the work week for me. But in several ways, it’s Tuesday, because it’s the 2nd day of the work week for me, and I’m also in my Tuesday shirt and… y’know… it legitimately being Tuesday and all… And, seeing as it’s Tuesday, it means it’s time to get you all those Podcasts I know you love listening to.

Let’s see if the system decides to eat this one or not. Anyway, it’s Saturday, and that means I’m happy. I’ve been doing various domestic things this morning in order to be ready for when a friend comes over for some gaming (Guild Ball and Ascension are the most-likely games to be played).

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.
