We were sent a copy of Lost Cities recently and I was asked to review it, despite officially being on hiatus, it was important that I fulfill this obligation and write this review: Lost Cities is a super-lightweight card game for two players, designed by Reiner Knizia. The game is played in rounds, with […]

 Trying something different today, this might be old news for some of you but I’ve discovered that there are an awful lot of people who don’t know about this story/game/thing and I want to help fix that because I had a great time with it. If you were in elementary or middle school during the […]

[Review] Wasteland 2

January 14th, 2015

Did you enjoy Fallout 1 & 2? Was Fallout: Tactics lacking something essential that really just didn’t make it pleasant or fun? Let me introduce you to a friend of mine: Wasteland 2. Way back in 1988, the game Wasteland was released. It was a bit before my time, and in my opinion it hasn’t aged […]

[Review] Shovel Knight

August 25th, 2014

This game. This freaking game… Shovel Knight is amazing. This game is what you get when you combine: The fantastic music and boss design of Mega Man The platforming challenge of Ninja Gaiden The artifact collection and combat of Zelda 2 The overworld features and map encounters of Super Mario Bros. 3 And the treasure-seeking […]

 I’m going to try something a little different today. That’s right, a tech review! As a gamer, I do enjoy many different gadgets as well (don’t worry there’s a tie-in to gaming for this anyhow) I got a Pebble Smart Watch last Christmas and I have been using it long enough to the point where […]

It’s a mouthful, and it’s amazing. I finally finished […]

So…Blizzard has been busy lately (they always are) but three major things have happened since I last mentioned them: 1) An expansion to Diablo 3 has finally been announced (thank goodness.) 2) The World of Warcraft TCG (formerly produced by Upper Deck, then by Cryptozoic) has been discontinued. and 3) Blizzard has debuted their own […]

  At GenCon this year, I had the pleasure of bumping into Michael Coe from Gamelyn Games to play the preview copy of his upcoming board game, Fantasy Frontier, designed by none other than Michael Coe himself, of Dungeon Heroes fame. Fantasy Frontier is a game of tile placement, worker placement, resource collection, and pattern recognition…all […]

The recently-shipped Kickstarter-success Castle Dice arrived on my doorstep not long ago, and I have been able to crack it open and play a couple of times so far and I wanted to review it as my primary fandom is of board games, so here goes! Castle Dice introduces a new kind of concept I […]

Greetings fellow gamers! I want to weigh in on two games that have been long overdue for a review, and I want to review them together because they share a similar theme, so let’s get right into it: EVOLAND Evoland began as an entry for LudumDare #24, and won. You can still play the original […]
