Gloomhaven


Gloomhaven on Steam Early Access

Gloomhaven. It's one of the highest-rated board games ever. If you want to go get some fantasy dungeon crawling adventure, you can't really do much better than it. But sometimes you want to have something else deal with all the fiddly bits and to just play the game. Thankfully, they're porting the game to an electronic version, which you can get via Early Access on Steam now.

Gloomhaven Second Printing Up On Kickstarter

Running out of a print run of a game is, technically, a good problem to have. It means you've sold through your inventory. Of course, it also means you're now out of things to sell. So it's good to get another run of the game printed up. And if you can update some stuff in the meantime, why not? That's what's going on with the Gloomhaven 2nd Printing Kickstarter.

Review Roundup

First part of the weekend is already a success. The pizza last night was pretty much everything I could've hoped for. It's nice when a week-long cooking project turns out good (ok, the pizza doesn't really take a week to make, but parts I was able to do ahead of time like render the bacon and such was done along the way, instead of doing it all last night). Today it's all about the Board Game Day at the Milton Library. If you're in the Atlanta area, stop on by.

But that's for later (well, later to me now as I'm typing this, not later from the time you read this, since I'm typing this at 6am and will be gaming at 2pm when it posts).

Right now we've got reviews of: London, Colosseum, Ophidian 2360, Ore-Some, Critter Combat, Gloomhaven, Runebound: The Gilded Blade Expansion, Mage Wars: Arena Paladin vs Siren Expansion, Conquest of Speros, Castles of Burgundy, Flamme Rouge, and Ponzi Scheme.

Hello Saturday. The Chuck Mangione from yesterday has switched over to Danger Doom, because that's the sort of mood I'm in. Other than that... not much happening on this side of the screen. A chill Saturday on a chilly Saturday here in Atlanta (seriously, we've actually got winter for a couple days before it's supposed to get back up to the 60s next week). But for the moment, let's get you some game reviews.

Today we have: Runebound: Fall of the Dark Star, Runebound: Caught in a Web, Castle Panic: Engines of War, Pests, Gloomhaven, Mysterium Digital Edition, Insider, Hands in the Sea, Villages of Valeria, and Covert.
