Review: Spyfall

We shouted at her from across the table, the whole family gathered round to watch what was going on, "Janet, seriously, we need you to give a more obvious answer to a question. We all believe you are the spy, if you aren't then you need to let us know. Please just answer the question clearly.... Continue Reading →

This Renaissance of Ours

A couple of weeks ago I read a blog post that kind of stuck with me. It was a short piece, only a couple of paragraphs long, talking about how it seemed like fewer and fewer people are playing board games compared to the number that used to. It was an opinion piece, and that... Continue Reading →

Why Fate is a Really Cool Concept

Last week I ordered a couple of RPG core sets to read through as an alternative to D&D. Although there isn't anything intrinsically wrong with D&D, I've been playing the D20 system my entire life (through either D&D or similar RPGs) and fancied a bit of a change.

There is something amazing about having dice that match the scenario you are playing that just keeps me buying more. Well, a... Continue Reading →

Wolverine as an Advanced D&D Character

Two days ago I was treated to Logan. The movie is the latest in a long line of X-Men movies and, after the abomination that was X-Men: Apocalypse it was a welcome addition to the genre. That being said, Hugh Jackman never disappoints, and once again he brought the iconic character of Wolverine to life on... Continue Reading →

Review: Brutal Kingdom

Last week I got a buzz on my phone. It wasn't the usual buzz. It wasn't an email or a text or even (heaven forbid, as an introvert) a phone call. Instead, it was a notification from my Amazon app. Yes, Prime Day has arrived and an item from my list was on sale. That... Continue Reading →
