If there’s one criticism of deck-building games, it’s often that players can feel like there’s not a lot of interaction between them. You build your own deck while the other players build theirs. Well, Lockwood’s Asylum looks to change all that. In the game, you’re not o...

Happy Halloween, everyone! I’m actually in costume, though you can’t see it. I’m dressed up as “me on Saturday.” Hey, having a set wardrobe for particular days of the week means that putting on a costume is as simple as changing which day I wear which shirts. Though it d...

In pretty much any game, you’re going to have the good guys and the bad guys. It’s those two opposing forces that creates the narrative. In Mindjammer, the Venu are those bad guys. Everyone is under the hell of the harsh emperor. The new sourcebook for the game, Children of Orion, gives p...

I love a good ’80s action flick. They’re just so over-the-top crazy, you simply have to smile, even if the plots are strange, the clothing odd, and the one-liners could often use some work. Countdown: Action Edition looks to bring everything you love about 80s action movies and put it on ...
