Munchkin is a game with a thousand faces. The game has seemingly countless different versions. A new one will be coming out in January. This one brings back Moop. There’s more mashed-up monsters to mangle as you make your way to more moot… I mean loot....

One of my first games I got into was Steve Jackson’s Ogre. Heck, Ogre_Mk5 was a screen name I used for quite a long while. Well, there’s an Ogre/G.E.V. video game in the works that accurately recreates not just that video-box game, but all of the Ogre minis world on the tabletop. TheyR...

Steve Jackson Games’ Ogre was one of my first forays into gaming. I remember cutting apart the little chits from the “VHS Box” version of the game. Heck, my screen name for a while was OgreMkV on various media. I know it’s been a big part of many other gamers’ lives. Wel...

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 […]...

There’s seemingly an endless amount of Munchkin sets that can exist, each with their own unique themes and twists that make the game a bit different with each play. This time, Steve Jackson Games is going a bit old-school, making a set based on one of the most famous wordsmiths ever: The Bard, ...

Munchkin is one of those games that I think it’s safe to say that most of us have played at some point. I know I have, actually playing a whole bunch of the different versions. It’s those different versions that make the game rather fun. Well, a new version is out, of sorts, that you [&he...

The Batman: The Animated Series show was one of the highest quality cartoon products I feel I’ve seen. It really captured the dark, dense world of Gotham and the inhabitants thereof. Though we watched it as kids (or, at least, I watched it as a kid), it really was full of grown-up themes and si...

I have a messenger bag that I use to carry my laptop around, and also just various other useful things (like pens and notepad when I’m at a convention or such). It’s incredibly plain. I wouldn’t mind getting a bit more “nerdy” bag. And thankfully, Steve Jackson Games is ...

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...

The Ogre game from Steve Jackson Games has had a rather large impact on my gaming life. Heck, I used to use Ogre_MkV as a screen name for the longest time. My old gaming group played the heck out of the VHS-box chit game. A friend was an MIB. So it’s cool to see the […]...

One of the first RPG systems I learned was GURPS (I actually learned it long before I learned anything D20-based). The system is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. With that, Steve Jackson is running a Kickstarter for Dungeon Fantasy, an RPG that uses the famously-flexible GURPS system. The ...

I’ve had my fair share of history tests over the years (I do have a degree in the subject, after all). And yes, for some of those tests, I didn’t study nearly as much as I should’ve. I certainly did wish I’d had access to a time machine. If nothing else, I’d go and study...

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. And with the recent upswing in Marvel movies (well, comic book movies in general, to be...
