Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #130-121

After three weeks or so, it’s time for another entry in the BGG Top 200! We’re almost done, which you would think would mean that I could actually get these done in a timely manner. But, you know, COVID and everything. Yeah, I do… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #130-121”

App Review – Roll for the Galaxy

Until news of the app version for Roll for the Galaxy came out, I hadn’t actually played it in quite a while. I do remember really liking the game, though. As I said in my Top 100 BGG games post, it’s a game that… Continue Reading “App Review – Roll for the Galaxy”

Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? #30-21

It’s that time of week again. The sun’s out (kind of, though it’s supposed to rain by the time this actually posts) and we’re into Summer. Yet the temperature’s in the 60s in Vancouver and I’m really enjoying it. I don’t need it to… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? #30-21”

Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? 70-61

It’s week 4 of my weekly look at the Boardgame Geek Top 100 games to see how many I’ve played and how many I even want to play. It’s a rather blah week, for a lot of reasons, but also just because there aren’t… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? 70-61”

Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? 100-91

It’s no secret that I’ve been in a bit of blog doldrums over the last couple of weeks. The social isolation and not playing many games (none until last weekend, actually) except the apps that I do asynchronously, plus getting really busy at work… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? 100-91”

Review – Embark

I’ve always been an explorer at heart, ready to ride the waves and discover new adventures, new lands, maybe meet a few new people. (Editor – Reading all of your reviews, you’ve had a lot of unfulfilled ambitions) While I was never able to… Continue Reading “Review – Embark”

New to Me – January 2019

Damn, I hate colds. Colds that work their way into your head and then just sit there, clogging up your sinuses until your head feels bigger than when you get a compliment from somebody you really admire. But not in a good way. The… Continue Reading “New to Me – January 2019”

New to Me – November 2018

It’s December! And too many days into December for my New to Me Games post for November, so my apologies. I do have a good reason, though. The Cult of the New to Me was having a fundraiser, but unfortunately it didn’t go well.… Continue Reading “New to Me – November 2018”
