Bad Beets


TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

Hello there, all you gaming friends out there in gamer-land! Seems for the moment that it's actually going to be a bit winter-like here in Atlanta. At least for a couple days. No, it's not like the winters I remember in Chicago, but if we had a winter like that down here, this place would never dig out of that. The whole state would shut down until June. It would be a nightmare.

However, a blizzard's-worth of reviews here today is just fine. (Because transitions!)

Today we've got articles on: X-Wing Miniatures Game, Star Wars Armada, Imperial Assault, Conflict of Heroes - The Eastern Front Solo Expansion, Queen's Necklace, Terrakami Games Sci-Fi Containers, Crusader A15 by Rubicon Models, Bountytown, Between Two Cities, Bad Beets, Ultimate Warriorz, Jamaica, The Gallerist, Mombasa, Ninja Camp, Shakespeare, Cthulhu Realms, Eternal Dynasty, Outer Earth, Fool's Gold, and Dark Age Z.

Stone Blade Entertainment Holiday Sales Happening Now

Yesterday I went over to my friend Gene's place. I've known him for quite a long time. My ex and his wife used to work together. Now Gene and I are in the same D&D group. When we're not pretending we're dwarves or half-orcs, we also enjoy playing Ascension. And, in fact, yesterday we played many hands. Several were won/lost by only a single point. Anyway, Stone Blade Entertainment is having a sale on not just Ascension, but also their other games this weekend.

TGN Review: They’re Nature’s Candy, You Know – A Review of Bad Beets

When I was growing up, every year we’d plant a vegetable garden back behind the garage. There would be some herbs, tomatoes, carrots, and several other items. One of those other items was beets. So when they were ready, we would always have fresh beets as a side dish for dinner. I grew up loving beets. However, having since had canned beets, I can see how others might not have such a fond memory of this clothes-staining root. Let’s face it, a lot of people don’t like eating their vegetables, and so I can see why a game could end up with a premise such as Bad Beets has.

Gen Con Interview with Justin Gary of Stone Blade Entertainment

Day 1 of Gen Con has been an absolute whirlwind. It feels like 3 days have already gone by. But no, it's just one. The show is a great time to sit down with some of the game companies in attendance and find out what they've been working on. One that I've been visiting a couple years in a row has been Justin Gary, the President of Stone Blade Entertainment (SBE). Ascension is on of my favorite games and one that I play most-often. So it's always great to try and pry bits of information about what's coming up for it. But it's not just Ascension this year from Stone Blade. We've got Bad Beets. Not only did I get a little info about the game, I got a full demo. Check out below to see how the game plays.

Stone Blade Entertainment's New Game Bad Beets Announced

Today at the GAMA Trade Show 2015 in Las Vegas, Stone Blade Entertainment announced Bad Beets, its first physical release since the successful Ascension deck-building franchiseWhereas Ascension was very much targeted toward the established gamer, Bad Beets takes the approach of being a casual, family game designed for anyone and everyone to have fun with. Gateway games seem to be a popular trend among companies as of late (for good reason), and Stone Blade seems to have recognized the benefit of having an easy to access game for anyone to try.
