In war, it's not just the actions of troops out on the battlefield that matter. There's a whole network of reserve units and supplies that must also be taken into account. In War Chest from AEG, playe

Why is it that weeks before a long weekend are always, themselves, the longest week possible? I swear it should've been Friday by now. But nope, still only Thursday. Though I know a lot of my friends
Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig is an interesting game in concept because it's competitive-cooperative. Players act as master builders, trying to create a grand castle. You will work with the p

In an RPG, it's all about relationships. You're a group of adventurers and it's the relationships that you have with one-another and the various NPCs that drive the story along. In Prism, the relation
Adventurers tend to group together. It's just sort of a natural occurrence. When doing so, they might even form guilds. This can allow them to get better resources, attract better contracts, and have
The damsel in distress is a trope basically as old as storytelling. But what about when that damsel decides, "the hell with it" and just decides to rescue herself? That's where you are in Maiden's Que
I'm always looking for new and interesting miniatures to add to my collection. I have to say, the Trash Panda mini that 02Media is showing off that they'll be releasing in October has me intrigued. It
Wednesday. ... This is always the day of the week that seems to take forever to go by for me. But, after it ends, there's the nice, downward slide into the weekend. I know I could use a pick-me-up in

Some figures in Season 4 are going to be changing a lot. Some are going to be changing a little. Some might stay the same. Every player out there is wondering who will change and how those changes wil
