    Who is This Man?

    Not too long ago, I had an opportunity to talk to Phil Kilcrease of 5th Street Games - the fine folks behind Kickstarter favorites Farmageddon and My Happy Farm. Check out the interview here!

    If you haven't had a chance to support 5th Street Games, don't worry - you'll have further opportunities! I'll have review up for Farmageddon soon, as well, so check back!

    Evie's Place

    My daughter, Evie, is a board gamer at heart and she loves to write - so we thought it would be fitting to give her her own column where she reviews games for kids. I'll cover the titles she reviews as well, to fill in the adults in the group, but if you've got kids who want to read about board games, Evie's going to help you out!

    Her first review is for Out of the Box Game's Shake 'N Take, a funky alien finding, shape discovering frenzy - featuring some truly epic alien styled dry erase markers and egg shakers. Read more about the game here!

My first Kickstarter pledge was for their fantastic farming game Farmegeddon, which is almost out! I’ll be doing a review of the [...]

Descent: Journeys in the Dark – Second Edition – Now in Stores!

Well, that flew under the radar a bit. I had assumed that the whole July launch for Descent was going to be a big load of crap, assuming that the game would launch at GenCon… but yeah, we all know what happens when we assume now, don’t we? Suffice to say, the game is now [...]
