Highlights From the January 2023 GMT Games Update

It’s been a few months since my lost post about the monthly GMT Update! That’s not GMT’s fault. They do it monthly. I just haven’t had a lot to say about the more recent ones. At least nothing that really seemed blogworthy. How many… Continue Reading “Highlights From the January 2023 GMT Games Update”

Review – Sentinels of the Multiverse: Definitive Edition

One of the common words I hear to describe some games with lots of upkeep is “fussy.” That’s when there’s a bunch of stuff on the table, you’re trying to keep straight multiple different abilities and tracks and hopefully you don’t forget anything. From… Continue Reading “Review – Sentinels of the Multiverse: Definitive Edition”

OrcaCon 2023 Retrospective

OrcaCon is a convention held in Bellevue, Washington in January every year. Sadly, I wasn’t able to go last year and the two years before that…well, something happened. I’m not really sure what. I went to my first OrcaCon in January 2020 and then… Continue Reading “OrcaCon 2023 Retrospective”

New to Me – December 2022

December was a curtailed month for games. The last game I played was on December 13 (or December 16 if you count my Combat Commander ladder game I played on a Friday night). Between a Sunday Funday being snowed out, Christmas falling on a… Continue Reading “New to Me – December 2022”

App Review – Chai

Sometimes we just need a little peace in our lives, especially during these tumultuous times. What can be more peaceful than brewing and selling tea? Ok, maybe a certain panda game, but other than that? I’ve heard a ton of good things about the… Continue Reading “App Review – Chai”

App Review – Early Access – Unmatched: Battle of Legends

One of the biggest 2-player game systems right now seems to be the Unmatched series by Restoration Games. I could be wrong, but I do hear a lot about it and expansions keep coming for it! I had been wanting to try it out… Continue Reading “App Review – Early Access – Unmatched: Battle of Legends”

New to Me – November 2022

November was an interesting month for boardgaming. I went to my second convention this year, a relatively small (compared to SHUX, anyway!) local wargaming convention where I was finally able to get a bit of wargaming done! Considering how many wargames I now have,… Continue Reading “New to Me – November 2022”

Empire’s End from John D. Clair – on Kickstarter now!

I’m kind of backing off some on the Kickstarter gravy train. While I did back Halls of Hegra a couple of months ago after some amazing video footage from my good friends Zilla Blitz and The Players’ Aid, I have come to the conclusion… Continue Reading “Empire’s End from John D. Clair – on Kickstarter now!”

Expansion Review – Smash Up Micro-Expansion – Penguins

Welcome to the second in a series (of four…that’s a series, right?) of Smash Up micro-expansion reviews for one of my favourite games from Alderac Entertainment Group. If not my favourite, it’s certainly one of my most-played, mainly due to the variety of expansions… Continue Reading “Expansion Review – Smash Up Micro-Expansion – Penguins”

New to Me – September 2022

September was a weird month as far as boardgaming went. Our Sundays were sparsely-attended and we ended up playing games that we were already familiar with. With one of my usual gaming co-workers away for most of the month, my other co-worker agreed to… Continue Reading “New to Me – September 2022”
