Relic: finally played a full game.

We finally sat down for a full on game of Relic.  We adopted a house rule to allow leveling up with 4 points worth of trophies, rather than the 6 points as mentioned in the rules.  This was an attempt to make the game move along a little quicker. Even with the lower threshold for […]

A long day of playing Eldritch Horror

Eldritch Horror is the new Lovecraftian board game from Fantasy Flight.  Many people have called it Arkham Horror 2.0.  After playing several games I don’t think EH is a revised Arkham.  It plays quite differently and when my AH group approached this game as yet another AH big box expansion we lost.  We lost a […]

The army so far

It took almost 18 months to assemble, prime, and paint the dwarf battalion box that I purchased at GenCon 2012.  There are a few extra models in this picture.  The flame cannon was a Christmas gift in 2012 and the slayer was donated to my army by a friend who had a sack o’ dwarfs […]

Warhammer on-line is gone?!

I decided to check in on my free-to-play rank 10 Dwarf Engineer.  I hadn’t played Warhammer on-line much but I did like the game.  I didn’t make it past the first PvP area.  I pulled up the client and nothing happened.  It looked like the application wanted to update.  So I headed over to the […]

Dwarf Fortress: the Plato’s Closet edition

My most recent attempt at Dwarf Fortress is slowly unravelling.  My fortress of 200 dwarves is in the  beginning stages of  an emo death spiral.  Food production has been interrupted.  Tantrums are resulting in assaults.  Soap has run out and infections are claiming many of those wounded in the assaults or by some of the forgotten […]

A Brilliant Idea: Savage Worlds Scooby-Doo

This is a brilliant idea.  I was wandering around the Savage Worlds forums looking for extra Pirates of the Spanish Main RPG info and I tripped across this thread.  A Savage Worlds Scooby-Doo adventure.   The gang are all wild cards and each player is carefully matched to the right hindrances and edges.  For example, […]

More bad news about games I love…

In the rule book for the Pirates of the Spanish Main RPG, by Pinnacle Entertainment Group there is a reference to future books that explore other time periods with rich ocean-going themes.  Alas, my Typhoid Mary streak is still going strong.  The Pirates of the Spanish Main RPG line is defunct.  This is due to the […]

The Typhod-Mary of products

I think I must be an unlucky patron or perhaps I’m just not good at picking winners. Futurama is cancelled. Disney is turning off Pirates of the Caribbean Online. EA killed Warhammer Wrath of Heroes. The World of Warcraft TCG is going away. I’m afraid to like or become interested in anything. As soon as […]

Assassin’s Creed Liberation multiplayer is a game?

What am I missing?  I sign in and attack a place with my agents and then put them on defense and sign out.  The next time I sign in I get a message that says the Assassins win and a new game is starting.  So I repeat the process.  It just doesn’t feel like a […]

Second look at the Playstation Vita

Back in February I wrote here that I’d be waiting until a price drop for the Vita.  Well the Assassin’s Creed bundle basically did that for me.  I got a 4G memory card, the AC3 game, and the Vita for the MSRP of just the Vita alone.  The machine is amazing with all sorts of interesting ways […]
