Review Roundup

It’s not just Saturday. It’s a 3-day weekend Saturday! The best kind of Saturday! (well, except for 4-day weekend Saturdays, or week-off Saturdays, but let’s not get pedantic here) I’m just kinda chillin’ today. Why go and run yourself ragged? Instead, I’ll just hang out and pass along some reviews for you to check out. Though I did almost relax my way through posting time. Whoops. 😉

Today we have: Escape Room: The Game, Schotten Totten, The Climbers, Techno Bowl, Tesla vs. Edison: War of Currents, ROBiTs, Caverna: Cave vs. Cave, Cosmic Encounters: Cosmic Eons, Table Tantrums, Hipster Teenage Wasteland, Burn the Heretic, Drinking Quest: Journey into Draught, Wild Fun West, London, and NMBR9.

Review Roundup

Well, it’s almost like the week is getting back on schedule, even though it’s Saturday. I woke up. I got groceries. I’m now typing up the Review Roundup in my living room while listening to music and contemplating the rest of my day. Sort of nice to get things back to how they should be. What can I say? I’m a creature of habit. Anyway, as it’s Saturday, it’s time to get you those review articles I know you all so desperately desire. So let’s get to it.

Today we have: Knot Dice Deluxe, Via Nebula, Lords of Hellas, 12 Realms: Dungeonland, 1754 Conquest: The French and Indian War, Star Realms: Colony Wars and United Expansions, Tournament of Towers, Manhattan Project: Energy Empire, Tesla vs. Edison: Duel, Balloon Pop, Terra Mystica App, Star Trek Panic, Sagrada, Yokohama, Ravage: Dungeons of Plunder, and EXIT: The Game – The Secret Lab.

Tesla vs. Edison from Artana to make North American debut at Gen Con 2015

I just paid my electric bill the other day. With this Atlanta heat, it put a small dent in my Gen Con spending budget. However, I still might have enough to pick up Tesla vs. Edison, the first game from Artana. They’ll be at the show with a limited number of copies. So hopefully all of you reading this won’t beat me to it. And yes, I realize I could’ve chosen to not post that they would be at the show, thus increasing my chances to get a copy of the game, but what sort of newsman would that make me?

Mid-Week Snippets

We’ve made it to another Wednesday. And at the time of this posting, it’s halfway through the workday. It’s like the Wednesday of hours on the Wednesday of days. If only it were the 15th of the month, too. Then it’d be the Wednesday of the month on the Wednesday of the week on the Wednesday of the hour.
