New to Me – February 2021

It’s now March and the Cult of the New to Me is getting restless. We’re now close to a year since lockdowns and social distancing became a thing rather than some abstract concept. This past weekend, a year ago, I was coming home from… Continue Reading “New to Me – February 2021”

Gravwell (2nd Edition) Coming from Renegade Game Studios

One game from 2013 that slipped under my radar (probably because I just really got into gaming in 2012) was Gravwell. The game, designed by Corey Young, looks like an intriguing and quick-playing race game. Yesterday, I received an exciting email from Renegade Game… Continue Reading “Gravwell (2nd Edition) Coming from Renegade Game Studios”

Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #110-101

After months of waiting (I hope you weren’t holding your breath), we have reached the end of the line (for the second time). Yes, we are at the end of the Top 200 BGG games, and it’s been an interesting ride. I’ve really discovered… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #110-101”

New to Me – December 2020

It’s the end of December and 2020 has been a really cruel and wicked year. However, one benefit of all of this is that I’ve played a lot more games with my wife than I had in the past. She graciously volunteered to play… Continue Reading “New to Me – December 2020”

Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #120-111

‘Twas the day before the day before the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. (Certainly not this blogger.) The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Vital would… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #120-111”

App Review – Terraforming Mars – Prelude Expansion

Long-time readers of this blog know that I’ve had a kind of love-hate relationship with the app version of one of my favourite games. While Terraforming Mars is still in my Top 10 games played, the digital version had a bumpy ride after its… Continue Reading “App Review – Terraforming Mars – Prelude Expansion”

Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #160-151

Another week, another “wow, I haven’t played many games” post. It’s almost like I’m failing as a “gamer”. Is that possible? Should I really feel bad that I haven’t played a bunch of games? Maybe, if I’m actually writing about them. Am I not… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #160-151”

Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – 180-171

This post has been a long time coming. Sorry about that. Life has a way of getting away from you sometimes, doesn’t it? Especially in these chaotic times. I swear that 2020 has been…well, let’s say “challenging.” However, I have made promises to people… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – 180-171”

Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #190-181

When I began this series about the Boardgame Geek rankings and talking about the games in them, I didn’t think it would be this difficult. The Top 100 was pretty static. So when I spent the first part of the week putting all of… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #190-181”

Kickstarter Backing – Arcana Rising

Sometimes it’s a good thing to be subscribed to the various boardgame company emails. I would normally say “especially as a reviewer,” but that hasn’t really paid out much. Instead, I’m saying this as a consumer who was alerted to the Kickstarter campaign for… Continue Reading “Kickstarter Backing – Arcana Rising”
