Last weekend, for the first time in almost three years, I actually went to a game convention. COVID really did put a damper on things. SHUX is the Shut Up & Sit Down gaming convention held at the Convention Centre in my home town… Continue Reading “SHUX 2022 Retrospective”

My August 2022 Gaming

August turned out to be a good month for gaming after a smaller July. Not only 30 plays of 22 games, but 11 new to me ones! That means (Gulp!) the “New to Me” post is going to be a bit late this month.… Continue Reading “My August 2022 Gaming”

Review – Terraforming Mars: Ares Expedition

(Edit: This game is on my Top 25 games played of all time!) What happens when one of your favourite games gets a bit of a revamp where it’s faster and also uses some mechanisms from other games that you like? It’s not the… Continue Reading “Review – Terraforming Mars: Ares Expedition”

New to Me – November 2021

Welcome to November’s “New to Me” post! You may notice something odd about November. No, it’s not that I had way too much Thanksgiving turkey (THANKSGIVING’S IN OCTOBER, YOU NON-CANADIANS!). It’s that three of the seven entries on this list are from Alderac Entertainment… Continue Reading “New to Me – November 2021”

Review – Whirling Witchcraft

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”
