Saturdaaaaaay! It's the best day of the week (in my opinion). What cannot be accomplished with a day like today? Well, I know what can, going to do some gaming. I put together some Guild Ball minis for my friend last night. Today I'll go hang out and play some board games up at the library. But before I can head out there, I need to get you your reviews I know you so desperately desire.

Today we've got: I Am the Fourth Wall, Gravity Warfare, Gruff: Stuff of Nightmares, The Faceless, Lanterns: The Harvest Festival iOS, Vengeance, Clans of Caledonia, Harvest, Flamme Rouge: Peloton, Sakura, Fairy Tile, Pocket Mars, Lords of Hellas, Fog of Love, and Sarissa Precision 28mm Japan MDF Terrain.

Welcome back again to Saturday. I hope you're enjoying it. I'm being a busy bear around the place, looking to finally tidy the den up after the long winter. Ok, so it's not really been winter for several weeks now, so color me a little lazy to actually get this project started. But before I start dusting, vacuuming, and whatnot, I need to schedule up this post to get you all the reviews I know you so desperate desire. So, for all those unfortunate enough to not be at Salute, let's see what we've got.

Today's articles include: Gruff: Stuff of Nightmares, Time of Crisis, Exorcism at the House of Monkton Falls, Paperback: Unabridged Expansion, The Bark Side, Tak, BetaBotz: Byte of Passage, The City of Kings, and The Grimm Forest.

Ah, Saturday. The start of the weekend. For many of us here in the states, though, it's an hour shorter. To be honest, I already went ahead and moved my clocks ahead an hour. It's not like I've got anything other than this scheduled for the day. I mean, It's Saturday!
But I also need to get you these reviews.

Today we have: Dead Throne, Draconis Invasion, 7 Ghosts, Robin Hood and the Merry Men, Secret Unknown Stuff: Escape from Dulce, Flip and Find’s Diner, Welcome to Centerville, Master of Orion: Conquest, Codenames: Duet, Portal of Heroes, Professor Evil and the Citadel of Time, and Felicity.

TGN Review: The Bestiary of Equestria

I’m an unabashed fan of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic series. I’ve seen all the way through Season 7. I’ve got the movie on Blu-Ray. And I’ve done multiple reviews for the Tails of Equestria products in the past. So, it seems only fitting that I continue on. I recently managed to get a Bestiary of Equestria, a book I’d been eagerly anticipating getting for a while, due to what’s been said to be inside. Did it live up to my expectations?

So, grab your favorite Wonderbolt hat, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time, it’s The Bestiary of Equestria for the Tails of Equestria RPG from River Horse Games.

You ever have one of those days where you wake up, get going with doing things, then look at the clock and are like, "Whoah! It's already 7pm!! How'd that happen!?!" Yeah, that was my yesterday. I woke the same as any other day except a voice was in my head... Ok, no voices in my head, but I did get started on various things, then realized that goddamn, it was late! So you didn't get your reviews yesterday. So I'm making up for it by posting them early today. Don't worry, this won't become a regular thing.

Anyway, today we have: Elder Sign: Omens of the Pharaoh, Zombicide: Green Horde, Batman: Gotham City Chronicles, Listit, Draconis Invasion, Dice Throne, Palm Island, City of Gears, Stuffed Fables, Pandemic: Rising Tide, V-Commandos: Secret Weapons, Planet of the Apes, Indian Summer, When I Dream, and Gaia Project.

TGN Review: Kraken Dice Iconic Blue Set

I don’t collect a lot of things. My board game collection is actually rather small. I only play 2 minis games, and the amount of each is relatively tiny. But when it comes to dice? … Well, I have a saying, “No such thing as too many dice.” I love these little jewels. I’ve got all types and am always looking out for new places to get them. In the past couple months, I’ve come across Kraken Dice. In that short time, they’ve quickly become my favorite dice company. My most recent purchase just showed up, and so I figured I’d tell you about them and about why I love this company so much.

So grab your Crown Royal bag, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time, it’s the Iconic Blue dice set from Kraken Dice.

TGN Review: Divinity Derby by Ares Games

Zeus has called together various gods and they’re having themselves a party. The ambrosia starts kicking in, and soon, they’re arguing over what mythical creatures would win in a flying race. Well, being divine in nature, the gods are able to figure this out directly by setting up a track and calling these creatures to fly for their amusement. Of course, no race is quite exciting enough without a little betting going on. That’s the story behind Divinity Derby, a new racing board game from Ares Games. They’ve sent me a copy to check out and let you know about how it works.

So get your $2 bet ready, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time, it’s Divinity Derby.

TGN Review: Munchkin CCG

Just about all of us have at least seen all the variations of Munchkin out there. It’s been a staple of Steve Jackson Games’ line since it came out. Most of the sets have been illustrated by the illustrious John Kovalic. Well, a new set of Munchkin is about to come out. One that’s different than all the others. It’s the Munchkin CCG.

Steve Jackson Games was kind enough to hook me up with a Cleric vs. Thief starter set, as well as some booster packs so I can tell you all about it.

So grab your alluring codpiece and chainsaw of bloody dismemberment, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time, it’s the Munchkin CCG by Steve Jackson Games.

Hello, Saturday. How are you? I'm alright. Still a little sick. Bit of a lingering cough, but I'm working through it. So no gaming will be had by me today (I'm actually just contemplating a nap). But I hope that your Saturday is a bit more exciting than what I've got going on.
At the very least, though, before I take another shot of medicine and go lay down, I gotta make sure you get those reviews you so desperately desire.

This week we have: Museum Heist, Race for the Galaxy iOS Expansions, Battle for Rokugan, Yogi, The Pursuit of Happiness: Community Expansion, Bubblee Pop, XCOM: Evolution Expansion, Dicetopia, Hot Shots, NewSpeak, Dragonfire, Codenames: Duet, Outpost Siberia, and Mage Wars Academy Warlord and Forcemaster Expansions.

TGN Review: Super Kitty Bug Slap

Those that’ve been long-time readers of TGN know that I have a love of “gaming backpack games.” Those are games that are very small and compact, tend to have few rules and a small footprint on the table, and can be played at almost a moment’s notice. They’re so named because you can toss them in your gaming backpack and whip them out whenever you’ve got a spare moment, be it before the rest of your group shows up for an RPG session, or between rounds in a miniatures game tourney, or just whenever you and some friends have a couple spare minutes. Super Kitty Bug Slap, from Steve Jackson Games, fits firmly into that category. But how does the game work?

Well, the fine folks over there sent me a copy, so I can tell you all about it.

Please, leave your fly swatters at home (they’d be cheating). It’s time for another TGN Review. This time, it’s Supper Kitty Bug Slap.

While we're on the subject of opinions, it's time to get into this week's reviews.

Today we have: Import/Export, Dream Catchers, Gaia Project, Schrodinger's Cats, Indulgence, Smile, and Shop 'N Time.
