new edition of Spartacus from Gale Force 9 releases on April 17

Who can resist a TV show (or game!) that has bloody arena combat between two (or more) fierce gladiators, where death may come quickly or it may come slowly in quick, debilitating cuts here and there that leave your gladiator struggling to survive?

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 – #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?

New to Me – June 2020

It was a month of horror in the Dude Take Your Turn household in June. Not because of anything bad, and certainly nothing virus-related. It’s just that 2 of the 4 new games played this month have to do with Ancient Evils trying destroy… Continue Reading “New to Me – June 2020”

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? 80-71

It’s week 3 of our weekly look through the Boardgame Geek Top 100 to see what games I’ve played and which ones I may be interested in playing. Last week I got educated about Dominion, maybe even enough to try it again some day. What… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 100 – Played or Play? 80-71”
