What’s past is past. At least, we thought so, anyway. It would seem that’s not quite the case. The stream of time has whirlpools and eddies and you can head back to them over and over again. In fact, sometimes you need to, lest the whole thing jump the banks and change course. That’...

In T.I.M.E. Stories, players are sent to ancient lands and exotic locations. This time, they’re going to that far-off time of… uh… 1982. … That’s how you know you’re old, kids, when a game is like, “we’re going to send you way back in time, to this time...

You’d think that time could just take care of itself. Once something’s done, it’s done. That’s not the case, though. Without regular monitoring, the whole time stream can unravel. In this case, the Reconquista of Spain isn’t going as it should. The T.I.M.E. Agency has to...

What’s done is done. Or is it? The time stream isn’t as unalterable as we think it is. Things can go wrong that threaten all of existence as we know it. In this case, there’s a special stone in 15th-century Spain that must be brought to the future for study due to its supernatural i...

Yes, I know it’s Tuesday and not Saturday. But Saturday I was preoccupied wondering how he (Jonah) eats and breathes, and other science facts. And then Monday I was recouping from the weekend of laughing my ass off. So today’s going to be a bit of a catch-up day. Anyway, let’s get t...

The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain. And if you happen to trip while trying to acquire a strange stone that both the Christians and the Moors are looking for, during the time of the Reconquista, you would fall on the Spanish plain, too. That’s where (and when) you’ll be headed in ...

Nobody said that traveling across the Arctic was going to be easy. There certainly was a rather high chance for everything to go to pot and everyone dying. Well… that kinda happened. Luck was not on the side for the crew of the Endurance. But as bad as being trapped in ice and slowly dying [&he...

In games we get to live out situations that we, ourselves can’t do. In T.I.M.E. Stories, your characters inhabit the bodies of others in history and look to fix the time stream. But what if you want to go a step further? The new Endurance expansion coming for the game lets you jump back in [&he...

While you can just pull up Google Earth from any internet-capable device and go exploring all over the world, 100 years ago, the only way to go discover a new place was to actually get there, yourself. And that’s just what the crew of the Endurance were attempting to do. Unfortunately, ice has ...

There certainly was plenty going on in 1914. But this particular situation doesn’t revolve around the rolling fields of Europe. That’s not to say that being part of a trans-arctic expedition is that much safer than being on the Western Front. As you find your consciousness put inside one ...

Ah, Saturday. What cannot be accomplished on a day like today? *hears someone shout out “You can’t build Rome in a day!”* … Ok, besides that. *hears people shout out hundreds of other things* Ok, fine! But besides the roads, education, the aqueduct, and stability, what have th...

The discovery and excavation of King Tut’s Tomb in Egypt is seen by many as one of the greatest archeological finds of all time. When Howard Carter and his team came across it and opened it up, it gave us an invaluable and unprecedented look into the world of ancient Egypt. But what if the [&he...

Who here remembers the series Quantum Leap? In the show, the main character would jump through time, inhabiting the body of someone in history and have to make sure they didn’t mess up the timeline at all. When I think of T.I.M.E. Stories by Asmodee, I get a similar sense. Granted, you’re...

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...

Welcome once again to Saturday. It’s been quite a morning over here. Rather busy for a Saturday. Biggest thing I’ve been working on is my decision to magnetize my Betrayal at Calth set (yes, this means it’s not 100% assembled yet. The games I’ve been playing of it have been us...
