It’s the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Man… my grocery list was 2x as long as usual. I got 2 turkeys, some sweet potatoes, russet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, dressing, carrots, and ingredients to make 2 pumpkin pies. … I, uh… kinda take Thanksgiving seriously. My fridge is rat...

It’s feeling a lot like Saturday 2: Sat Harder (editor’s note: rework that title before publishing) here. Yesterday I spent much of the day at home, hanging out and working on my friend’s Guild Ball minis. He moved recently and a bunch of his stuff got jumbled and busted up. Plus, t...

It’s Saturday. I’m hanging out in the bear’s den here. LGS has a huge tourney going on, so I’m just gonna hang out here. So it’s me, John Mulaney, and typing up the Review Roundup. Literally Netflix and chill (no innuendo). Everyone needs just some relaxed days occasiona...

Recently, Deep-Cut Studios started a new program where you can send in a photo and they’ll print a custom game mat for you. They sent out invitations for reviewers to get an early look at the service and give people their thoughts. I was one such reviewer selected, and since I’d been meaning to get [...

Saturday night’s alright for gaming. Saturday afternoon’s alright for gaming. Saturday morning’s alright for gaming. Pretty much all of Saturday (Saturday, Saturday) is good for gaming. I’m… not currently gaming. I’m baking (yes, again), getting ready for an early ...

It’s not just Saturday. It’s a 3-day weekend Saturday! The best kind of Saturday! (well, except for 4-day weekend Saturdays, or week-off Saturdays, but let’s not get pedantic here) I’m just kinda chillin’ today. Why go and run yourself ragged? Instead, I’ll just ha...

Woo! Saturday! Woo! As you’re reading this, I’m over at the LGS, hanging out and just taking it easy. I’m hoping you’re doing much the same (or have done so and are just reading this later, as I am typing this earlier). Either way, I hope you’re able to make good use out...

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...

Let’s see if the system decides to eat this one or not. Anyway, it’s Saturday, and that means I’m happy. I’ve been doing various domestic things this morning in order to be ready for when a friend comes over for some gaming (Guild Ball and Ascension are the most-likely games t...

Well, it would seem as though the system took a vacation over the long holiday weekend, as it ate the Review Roundup post. Such things happen occasionally. It’s alright… I’ll just make a new one this morning for you. Today we have: Dragons Hoard, Andoria Battlefields, Masters of Ele...

Man, it’s hard to think that Gen Con was a week ago. At this point, the show was more than half-over. How time flies. Hopefully everyone was able to recuperate well. I seem to have missed out on getting Con Crud. So that’s good. My feet were feeling just fine again by Tuesday. So thatR...

I know. I know. I know. It’s Tuesday, not Saturday. But I was a tad busy Saturday, if you didn’t notice. 😉 So, after flying home yesterday, and then getting around 12 hours of sleep overnight, I’m looking to get back into the swing of things here. Most companies “shut downR...

Usually, I’m all like, “hey! It’s Saturday! Go get your gaming on!” and, in a way, I’m still that. But I’m also, “It’s the Saturday before Gen Con… … … I Have So Many Things I Still Need To Do!!!” A couple people have asked me, &...

Well, it’s Saturday. My day was looking like it might be a bit dull, but then a friend was like, “Hey, let’s have everyone come over and game.” and I was like, “done and done. I just need to type up a post first.” So, that’s the sacrifice I’m making for...

Blame Canada (Day), but it seems that the post got eaten by the system. It happens occasionally, but it’s alright. We can rebuild it. We can make it stronger, faster, better… Or mostly the same but with this new intro. Anyway, this week we have: Werewords, Caverna: Cave vs Cave, Not Alone...

I’m an unabashed fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I put it in the same league as something like Animaniacs and Tiny Toons, where, sure, I may not be the real target audience, but I feel it’s a quality cartoon product that has enough references to keep me interested (they dress up as [&hell...

I know. I know. This was supposed to go up yesterday. Well, WordPress has been flaky lately and it missed its posting window. Hence why it’s going up now with a reworded opening talking about it not being posted on Saturday instead of saying, “I’m going to the LGS and gonna pick me ...

Yes, I know it’s Tuesday and not Saturday. But Saturday I was preoccupied wondering how he (Jonah) eats and breathes, and other science facts. And then Monday I was recouping from the weekend of laughing my ass off. So today’s going to be a bit of a catch-up day. Anyway, let’s get t...

It’s Saturday, the day that’s full of possibilities (Ok, so every day is full of possibilities, but it just feels moreso on Saturday to me). With any luck, your day is full of gaming. But at the moment, I know you’re all interested in what sort of reviews we’ve got for you. We...
