For Star Trek Attack Wing, the cards are where it’s at. I know, the ships are flashy and actually do the moving around on the board, but it’s the cards that tell you what you get to do when that ship is in position. As such, WizKids is going to be coming out with card […]...

Is anyone else announcing as many game releases as WizKids is right now? It feels like almost every day I’m seeing a new announcement from them. That’s not any sort of condemnation of it, mind you. Just more of a, “whoah, they’re coming out with more? Alrighty!” Anyway, ...

Getting stranded on an island out in the middle of the ocean is pretty terrible. Thankfully, there’s a small amount of resources to be found. There’s only one issue. There’s not quite a lot of food. Hey… did you ever realize that you kind of look like a ham sandwich? WizKids h...

Trade! Trade is the name of the game in Sidereal Confluence: Trading and Negotiation in the Elysian Quadrant (quite the name there). But what one person wants, another one might not want them to have. So it might take some heated negotiations so you can get what you want. And, of course, in the end, ...

Pretty much all of us have played a video game where we have different units that attack at different speeds. Sure, that artillery unit can do a ton of damage, but it takes a while to reload.

I deal with deadlines every day. Hell, I sort of have one every hour from 9am to 6pm, M-F. I make it, most of the time. Though, thankfully, none of my deadlines deal with murder and intrigue in 1930s New York. For that, I would have to go play Deadline, the new investigation card game […]...

It has been a very long time (since high school gym class) since I’ve shot a bow and arrow. At the time, we used two hands. Well, some people don’t have two hands, so they have to improvise. In the upcoming Elseworlds set for HeroClix, there’s a version of Green Arrow that has lost ...
