Longtime readers know my love of cooking, especially in the “sweets” realm. Cookies, pies, cheesecakes. I have created and consumed them all. (which reminds me that I need to make a pumpkin pie and some spiced whipped cream for tomorrow…) So, when I see a card game that’s call...

Well, this game’s name is at least a bit shorter than what Cryptozoic has been putting out lately. This time around, they take on Teen Titans Go! with a new Deck-Building game, appropriately titled the Teen Titans Go! Deck-Building Game (one thing you have to say, you know exactly what you̵...

You know… I don’t think anyone makes games with names as long as Cryptozoic does. Full disclosure, I’m copy/pasting that name in this article. I’ve got to much to do to type out Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Melee at Murdershroom Marsh every time I want to mention Epi...

While many of us love unicorns, it’s not everyone that thinks they’re so great, especially if they’re overrunning your Queendom, as they were doing in a land far, far away. Now, many conservationists will tell you that regulated hunting can be beneficial to a wild population. But th...

Some people work well in groups. Those types of people will probably do well in Team Play, a cooperative card game coming from WizKids (licensed from Schmidt Spiele). Players will be looking to complete objectives and score points faster than the other teams. However, you can’t just communicate...

The Space Race. For many years, it was a major part of world politics as the US and the Russians looked to be the first to truly conquer this new frontier. First Sputnik. Then Yuri Gagarin. Then manned missions to the moon (to ridiculously over-simply things). But what if more than just the US and [&...

Comic books are filled with confrontations. I mean, it wouldn’t be all that interesting if Superman just went to work as Clark Kent, had a standard day where nothing happened, and then went home at night. Not really thrilling. So you’ve got supervillains and even rogue superheroes and all...

Sometimes you want to get your D&D on and your group’s not there. Maybe you’re waiting for them to show up. Maybe you weren’t able to get everyone together. Maybe it’s not your regular gaming day. Whatever the reason, you want your D&D and you want it now! But how to...

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...

I usually have all sorts of weird dreams. It’s hard to explain what goes on, since most of it comes down to “dream logic” to figure out how they all go together. Thankfully, I rarely have nightmares. You never know, that might be because there’s a divine entity out there trapp...

Out in the wild, there’s creatures heretofore unknown to science, but certainly known to the local populations. Some of the cryptids are world-famous, even. But, despite their fame, they remain elusive. That’s why you, a cryptozoologist is headed out into the woods to find them, once and ...

Occasionally, games need to be redone. They were good, and had a good premise and mechanics. But over time, things need to be updated, rebalanced, and re-thought out. Such was the case with Kanzume Goddess. And Japanime Games has done it. It’s now Kamigami Battles: Battle of the Nine Realms, a ...
