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”

Works of Wonder – Architects of the West Kingdom expansion

This appears to be a “week before Christmas news extravaganza” but I hope to get a review done this week too (or something, at least).

Prelude Coming to Terraforming Mars on Steam December 8th

Good news for Terraforming Mars fans, at least those in the digital realm!

Yesterday, the expansion to the wonderful tableau-building card game Fantastic Factories, designed… Continue Reading “Fantastic Factories: Manufactions Now on Kickstarter”

New to Me – March 2020

As we move into April, the self-isolation continues. For some people, that was their normal behaviour anyway, but it’s still hard to be sequestered away from seeing pretty much anybody. I’ve been working from home since March 16 and it’s been quite the adjustment.… Continue Reading “New to Me – March 2020”

Expansion Review – Smash Up: Monster Smash

Wow, two Smash Up expansion reviews in two weeks? After a months-long hiatus? What can that mean? It means that I’ve been combining new expansions while playing them for review. What, did you think I meant global annihilation or something like that? Let’s save that… Continue Reading “Expansion Review – Smash Up: Monster Smash”

Expansion Review – Smash Up: Awesome Level 9000

It’s been a few months since I’ve done a Smash Up expansion review.

New to Me – February 2020

We’re a little late with the “New to Me Games” post for February, but there is definitely a good reason. Last week was the Cult of the New to Me fundraising car wash! Unfortunately, the flyers I sent out and put up had the… Continue Reading “New to Me – February 2020”

Nomad Games to Add a New Expansion to Smash Up App

Yesterday, I received an email from Nomad Gamesthat made me very excited. No, it wasn’t a new Talisman: Origins expansion or anything like (though I do love getting early access to those!). No, they announced that the Smash Up app is going to be… Continue Reading “Nomad Games to Add a New Expansion to Smash Up App”
