New to me – January 2021

Ah, 2021. The past year has been dangerous, depressing, disappointing, in some cases despotic, and many other words that begin with “d”. Everybody was so happy to get rid of it, to see it in the rear view mirror, like stopping at a rest… Continue Reading “New to me – January 2021”

Review – Legendary: A Marvel Deckbuilding Game

Can you name a game that I have played 61 times with various expansions but for some reason haven’t actually done a review for? You can? How is that? Oh, it’s in the title of this post. Cheater. Anyway, Legendary: a Marvel Deckbuilding Game… Continue Reading “Review – Legendary: A Marvel Deckbuilding Game”

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”

Review – Shards of Infinity

There’s something to be said for a nice, simple deck-building card game that you can knock out in 15-20 minutes (maybe 30 if you’re unlucky). These games are perfect for a couple of games at lunch with co-workers, or maybe as a way to… Continue Reading “Review – Shards of Infinity”

Top 5 Games Played in 2020

Most years, I get to play at least 100 unique games, based on conventions and my Sunday game days. Sadly, due to COVID, that didn’t happen in 2020. My wife willingly played a bunch of games with me during our lockdown, so the fact… Continue Reading “Top 5 Games Played in 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”

New to Me – November 2020

Another month and another COVID month where I actually have some new stuff to talk about! Kind of. Expansions aren’t necessarily the same as playing “new” games, but they are still cool, right? You’re not one of those that hates on all expansions just… Continue Reading “New to Me – November 2020”

Legendary Marvel Expansions for 2021

Look at what expansion goodness for Legendary Marvel that Upper Deck Entertainment announced yesterday! I was a die-hard fan of the Legendary Marvel deck-building game and all of its expansions. Unfortunately, when the Deadpool expansion hit and the cards were a bit warped, and… Continue Reading “Legendary Marvel Expansions for 2021”

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”

Yes, there is a shower of toads raining down on Vancouver right now. Yes, Hell has frozen over and the devil is ice skating. That’s right, this post is actually coming out a week after the last post! I know you’re all amazed, right?… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #170-161”
