It’s the dawn of time… Eh, that’s too early. Someone wake me up at the noon of time… No, wait, I need to get up and make my bed… though I should probably build a hut and get a village going. But to have a village, I need resources. But there’s other villages out th...

Memes are pretty much an everyday part of our lives right now. Hell, I used a couple earlier today when talking with friends. Gaming is also a part of our everyday lives (well, if you’re visiting here, it probably is, anyway). So, why not mix the two? That’s when you get Memeology, a card...

Hey everyone. We’ve made it around to another weekend. I said I was going to probably be doing some baking. Well, I’ve got some magic cookie bars cooling right now. I love these things… probably too much… *looks at my stomach* … definitely too much. But issues with my wa...

You belong in a zoo! Can’t say I’ve ever had that actually yelled at me, but I do enjoy going to the zoo (though it’s been quite a long time since I’ve been to one). As one would expect, I tend to head to the polar bear enclosure and hang out there. If I could […]...

Sometimes it’s not about the party, but the party after the party. In this case, it’s Ninja Division having a huge sale as the after party. Are all after parties huge sales? I’ve never been to one, but if I can save up to 45% off on games and stuff, I just might start going [&hellip...

Well, it looks like the politicians have done it again. Something terrible has happened, but they can’t just come out and say that. For every cloud has a silver lining. Just how big you make that silver lining, though, is up to the Spin Department. That’s what you’ll be in charge of...

When it comes to computers, I pretty much have the intelligence of a potato. To me, they are magic boxes filled with gnomes and sprites. They work most of the time, but occasionally the Lilliputian workers go on a coffee break and things don’t work. Well, Potato Pirates, a new card game that...

Game storage is something we all have fought with at some point, I’m sure. This can particularly be troublesome with games that have lots of expansions. You want to have all the parts together, but the original box the game came in might not really be able to hold everything. So you are forced ...

The color yellow, at least in certain cultures, has often been associated with being cowardly. “What are ya, yellah?” is something you’ve possibly heard in some old western movie. But the yellow cards in Star Wars: Destiny are hardly a bunch of cowards. Empire at War proves that wit...

Fans of anime know about the “Notice me, Senpai!” thing. It’s where a character is really hoping that their teacher or boss or somesuch notices them and goes out of their way to hopefully catch their eye. I mean, it’s basically like we do in real life, hoping that a person we ...

It should come as no surprise to anyone that I’m a fan of food. So, of course, if I’ve got good food in front of me, I’m going to defend it from all poachers. And… maybe I might keep an eye out to see if someone’s not defending their yummy treats as much as they [&hellip...

You don’t just become a ninja overnight. It takes a lot of intense training and study to acquire and hone your skills. And, when you think you’re done, there’s still the final test to overcome: a giant ninja-fight! That’s the stage that you are at in Shadow Strike Melee, a new...

Some drinking games out there are just meant to get you as drunk as possible as fast as possible (beyond just chugging pure grain alcohol, I suppose). Bowties is a bit more casual about it. A little more upscale. Players have a card that they “wear” like a bowtie with a rule on it. They [...
