No, this doesn't mean that AEG is quitting gaming and going into cat rescue or anything like that. Calico is a new tile-laying game where players are creating quilts in order to attract cats to them.

2020 is turning out to be quite a year, and we're only getting to halfway through it. A lot of plans from before the year began have had to be changed, sometimes drastically. That includes game releas

I mean, sure, you could walk your way into battle, but where's the fun in that? Better to ride in style. And that's what the Executioner does in their Executioner's Chariot for the Dark Souls board ga
I was a really cool kid. I had Castle Greyskull. Oh yeah. You can be retroactively envious of me. That's fine. Though I don't have it anymore, soon, I'll be able to relive that childhood as CMON has a
Do you know what "nemesis" means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent. Personified in this case by an 'orrible bear... me.Ok, obligatory quote out of the way... I
I've been living in apartment for a long time now, but I did used to have a house out in Kansas when I lived there. So, I definitely know what it's like trying to maintain a lawn, especially in autumn
Humans haven't been able to get along for pretty much forever, with different factions fighting for different causes all throughout history. The Commands & Colors Tricorne series takes you to thos
Dawnshade: The Watchers Prophecy bills itself as a JRPG that you can play on your tabletop. Being a fan of such games, I'm intrigued. Players must work together and traverse the lands, completing ques

The Scythian chieftans are looking to claim the best land for themselves and out-maneuver the others. They will send their troops all across the land, raiding as they go. In the end, however, only one
I tend to sleep rather well, despite having upstairs neighbors who apparently wake up at around 10pm and decide then is the best time to have dance contests. Thankfully, there's no monsters under my b
