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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]
