Social Distance Gaming

If you are anything like me, you miss playing games with people face to face. Board games are my way of disconnecting from the work screen, the tv screen and mobile device. And while I miss my gaming group, I am very thankful for all the ways that technology can keep us connected and playing […]

You’re Invited to Dine with Darkness.

The nights are growing longer and winter’s icy breath encroaches on your mantle. Welcome to the season of All Hallow’s Eve, or in the old world, Samhain. Samhain was seen as a liminal time, when the boundary between this world and the Otherworld could more easily be crossed. The dead, not so dead, and undead […]

2nd Generation D&D Players

After searching in the ancient desk, you find a blank piece of paper. After giving it a good look, you can’t see any visible marks on it. While lost in trying to figure out its meaning, you become aware of someone or something breathing behind you. What do you do?” I started playing Dungeons and […]

ASL Special Weapons

There is something to be said about the ritual of clipping counters for war games. To me, it is almost worth the price of the game. It allows you to get familiar with the game components as well. Serves an in game purpose as well; makes it easier to push counters around the map without […]

Paths of Glory

Yesterday I had an opportunity to GMT Games’ Paths of Glory. I purchased it a while back, and aside from tooling around with a solo variant and getting a little used to the rules, I hadn’t really had the time to dig into it. My first game was fun; however, it was over quick. Really […]

I have yet to really post anything online (at least on social media) about how much I have been enjoying playing Pokémon Go with the family. It has been quite the social phenomonon, but aside from that, it allows you to see parts of your town that you might not get to enjoy that often. […]
