Saturdaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! Woo!
My favorite day of the week, as I can just sit back, relax, and do some gaming.

Woo! Weekend! Woo!
Yeah… so, it was actually a short week in the office, since I had Monday at home. But damn, it still felt just as long as a regular week… maybe even longer.
But after seemingly interminable years, it’s finally Saturday again.

Saturdaaaaaaaaaay! Woo! Time to go out and… schedule this post, have some breakfast, get groceries, and then do some gaming! Woo! Going to a friend’s place to hang out, have some game time, do some cooking out on the grill, and just having a good day, all before next week’s blitz that is CMON Expo.

International Tabletop Day. It’s like our true gaming holiday. I’ll be spending it playing D&D with friends (even doing a live stream and then uploading the video later, because that seems like a good idea at the time).

This week we have: Pocket Ops, Envyra, Mysthea, Iquazu, Time Barons, Byzanz, Wonderland: Vast: Fearsome Foes Expansion, Pulsar 2849, and Zoo Ball.

Saturdaaaaaay! It’s the best day of the week (in my opinion). What cannot be accomplished with a day like today? Well, I know what can, going to do some gaming. I put together some Guild Ball minis for my friend last night. Today I’ll go hang out and play some board games up at the library. But before I can head out there, I need to get you your reviews I know you so desperately desire.

Today we’ve got: I Am the Fourth Wall, Gravity Warfare, Gruff: Stuff of Nightmares, The Faceless, Lanterns: The Harvest Festival iOS, Vengeance, Clans of Caledonia, Harvest, Flamme Rouge: Peloton, Sakura, Fairy Tile, Pocket Mars, Lords of Hellas, Fog of Love, and Sarissa Precision 28mm Japan MDF Terrain.

Here we are back on Saturday. Hard to believe it’s as late as it is already. Day just seems to be flying by. If there’s any day of the week that I usually hope “drags on,” it’s Saturday. But not so today. I’ve been up since 3:15am (that’s just what time my brain decided to be awake this morning), and can’t believe how late it already is. But, one of the last things I really need to get done is get you those reviews you so desperately desire.

This week, we have: HEXploreit: The Forest of Adrimon, The First Steps of Calais, Vinyl, Mobster Metropolis, Rise of Moloch, Lotus iOS, Manhattan, Empires, Stuffed Fables, Hellapagos, Bunny Kingdom, The Fox in the Forest, and Burning Suns.

Ah, the blessed Saturday. What cannot be done on a day like today?
I’ve got several projects I’m working on, as always. Some cooking, mostly. Gonna try making some new types of cookies. Always a fun project. Also fun, gaming. Let’s get you the reviews I know you so desperately desire.

Today we have: Railroad Rivals, Dragon Keepers, Batman: Gotham City Chronicles, Massive Darkness, Rising Sun, Dresden Files Card Game iOS, Mistborn: House War, Rajas of the Ganges, Fire in the Library, Mice & Mystics, CV Pocket, Manhattan, Muse, and Maximum Apocalypse.

Erin go Bear!
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.

Today we have: Quest for El Dorado, Mysthea, Pandemonium, Clank: The Mummy’s Curse, Onitama, Samurai Gardener, Byzanz, Demon Trilogy: Subrosa, Barbarians: The Invasion, Dragon Keepers, The Lost Expedition, and Red7 App.

Ah, Saturday. The start of the weekend. For many of us here in the states, though, it’s an hour shorter. To be honest, I already went ahead and moved my clocks ahead an hour. It’s not like I’ve got anything other than this scheduled for the day. I mean, It’s Saturday!
But I also need to get you these reviews.

Today we have: Dead Throne, Draconis Invasion, 7 Ghosts, Robin Hood and the Merry Men, Secret Unknown Stuff: Escape from Dulce, Flip and Find’s Diner, Welcome to Centerville, Master of Orion: Conquest, Codenames: Duet, Portal of Heroes, Professor Evil and the Citadel of Time, and Felicity.

You ever have one of those days where you wake up, get going with doing things, then look at the clock and are like, “Whoah! It’s already 7pm!! How’d that happen!?!” Yeah, that was my yesterday. I woke the same as any other day except a voice was in my head… Ok, no voices in my head, but I did get started on various things, then realized that goddamn, it was late! So you didn’t get your reviews yesterday. So I’m making up for it by posting them early today. Don’t worry, this won’t become a regular thing.

Anyway, today we have: Elder Sign: Omens of the Pharaoh, Zombicide: Green Horde, Batman: Gotham City Chronicles, Listit, Draconis Invasion, Dice Throne, Palm Island, City of Gears, Stuffed Fables, Pandemic: Rising Tide, V-Commandos: Secret Weapons, Planet of the Apes, Indian Summer, When I Dream, and Gaia Project.

It’s Saturday and I’m painting minis.
… I’m not good at painting minis…

But while the last color dries, I’m gonna post your reviews for you.

Today we have: War of Supremacy, Laruna: Age of Kingdoms, Harvest Dice, Ex Libris, Legacy of Dragonholt, Boom Blast Stix, A Column of Fire, Cytosis, Dream Catchers, Arkon, Fabled Fruit, Queendomino, and Clans of Caledonia.

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 Saturday. And not just any type of Saturday, but Saturday of a 3-day weekend. I can’t think of a much better sort of Saturday… Well, maybe Saturday of Gen Con. But that’s a pretty damn busy Saturday. But for “above average” Saturdays, I’d say that 3-day weekend Saturday is a pretty good Saturday. Do you think I’ve typed the word “Saturday” enough by now? Well, I don’t know what you’ve got going on today, but I’m going to be delivering games to a friend, and then possibly having minis delivered to me. Because it’s an awesome Saturday. I’m also here to show off some reviews for you.

This week we have: Nemesis, Everdell, Fox in the Forest, Hamsterrolle, Codenames: Disney, Escape Room in a Box: The Werewolf Project, 878: Vikings, Kepler-3042, Okey Dokey, Santorini, Finished!, Ex Libris, and Hunger: The Show.

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!

It’s the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Man… my grocery list was 2x as long as usual. I got 2 turkeys, some sweet potatoes, russet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, dressing, carrots, and ingredients to make 2 pumpkin pies. … I, uh… kinda take Thanksgiving seriously. My fridge is rather full. But before we get there, we’ve gotta get you those reviews I know you so desperately desire.

This week we have: Hotshots, Alien Artifacts, America, Noxford, Twilight Imperium, Rhein: River Trade, Queendomino, Exit the Game Wave 2, Folklore: The Affliction, and The Expanse.

It’s feeling a lot like Saturday 2: Sat Harder (editor’s note: rework that title before publishing) here. Yesterday I spent much of the day at home, hanging out and working on my friend’s Guild Ball minis. He moved recently and a bunch of his stuff got jumbled and busted up. Plus, there were some new kits he’d gotten in that he wasn’t sure when he would be able to assemble them. Putting figures together is arguably my favorite part of the whole hobby, so I’ve offered to fix his busted minis, assemble his new ones, and even move some of his other figures over to sculpted bases he’d gotten. There’s ~35 minis that are getting some kind of work on them, from assembly, to those bases, to fixes, to green-stuffing the slots. It’s been a fun project. Certainly kept me busy. Plus, next time I see them on the other side of the pitch, I don’t have to see a bunch of half-assembled and busted figures. 😛
But I’m currently taking a break (my hand’s cramping from using a pin vice all morning) to bring you those reviews I know you all so desperately desire.

This week we have: Storm Hollow, The Mysterious Forest, Pandemic Legacy Season 2, Vengeance, Gloom of Kilforth, Spoils of War, Santorini, Kerala, Mini Rails, Armageddon, By Order of the Queen, NMBR 9, Coded: Card-Time Strategy, Legend of the Five Rings, Woo-Hoo!, AquaSphere, and Cities of Splendor.

It’s Saturday. I’m hanging out in the bear’s den here. LGS has a huge tourney going on, so I’m just gonna hang out here. So it’s me, John Mulaney, and typing up the Review Roundup.

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). The other thing I need to get done this morning is type up this post. Yes, I’m typing this up early and scheduling it to post later. The Magic of the Internet, everyone! Anyway, let’s get to it.

I know. I know. I know. It’s Tuesday, not Saturday. But I was a tad busy Saturday, if you didn’t notice. 😉
So, after flying home yesterday, and then getting around 12 hours of sleep overnight, I’m looking to get back into the swing of things here. Most companies “shut down” during Gen Con, since they were all at the show, but there’s still plenty to catch up with from over the weekend. That starts with the reviews I know you all so desperately desire.

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.

This week we have: Nerdy Inventions, Incantris, Anachrony, Lucky Dogs, Wordsy, Deckscape: Test Time, A Dog’s Life, Titan Tactics, Frantic, Have at Thee, Upon a Fable, Sopio, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Shadow War: Armageddon, Massive Darkness, Oh My Goods, Nimbee, Pandemic Legacy Season 1, and The Lost Expedition.

Well, it’s Saturday. My day was looking like it might be a bit dull, but then a friend was like, “Hey, let’s have everyone come over and game.” and I was like, “done and done. I just need to type up a post first.” So, that’s the sacrifice I’m making for you all. I could be on my way to gaming, but I know how much you need to get your review articles.
