The new Pokemon GO game has been released in the U.S. and it seems to be a pretty fun idea.  The augmented reality game connects with a Google Maps like system (could very well be Maps itself) to give the player a real world space to explore and look for pokemon.  I can help but […]

Note4 vs iPhone almost a year in

It’s been almost a year since I switch from the Apple iPhone to the Samsung Note.  I rarely use my iPad anymore unless I’m playing one of the board games that I have previously purchased from the Apple App store.  Many of the things I thought I would miss from the Apple ecosystem just aren’t […]

Migration to android

I can’t take it anymore!  The iPhone’s new user interface is just too stark and bland and thin.  I had a long chat with an Apple employee about the philosophical reasons behind the abandonment of skeuomorphics.  The newest Mac OS is sporting a flattened and bland interface as well and no theme settings or adjustments. […]

Games Workshop retail store

I found my way into a Games Workshop retail store last night.  I was excited to learn about the store.  I was hoping that a GW retail outlet would be something special.  The manager was friendly and knowledgeable.  He knew the games and army compositions and the lore.  He offered constructive tips on how to […]

Hirst Arts molds

I picked up a selection of Hirst Arts castlemolds at Gen Con this year.  I have wanted to find a solution for scenery for RPGs and Warhammer fantasy battles.  I looked at the pre-build walls and hallways from a few different vendors.  I wanted to have more options and be more creative with my scenes.

Last Night on Earth first impressions

We finally got around to playing the Last Night on Earth game. I’m not a big zombie fan, but I found that I liked the game. I’m a huge fan of Mansions of Madness; the one thing that causes trouble with Mansions is the long setup time. If you setup a card stack wrong or […]

Red Dragon Inn play test

For longer than I can recall I’ve wanted to play the Red Dragon Inn. For one reason or another it was on my short list, but something else always came out or was the new hotness and I never got around to buying a copy.  Also, I was skeptical about the theme.  My gaming group includes […]

Free trade coffees in an anti-competitive pod: hippie hypocrits!

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is hard at work making pods for the Keurig brewer that contain some kind of exclusivity device.  Just like iTunes music that gets tied to your computer the Keurig 2.0 system will only brew drinks from licensed pod makers.  That means kiss those lower cost pods at Wal-Mart good bye.  If […]

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 […]
