Friday Night Shots – Are Boardgame Playthroughs Boring? Or Awesome?

It’s Friday and the vodka is flowing yet again. What does that mean? That my liver will be complaining for a while? That is true, but it also means it’s time for another edition of Friday Night Shots! I wasn’t actually sure what I… Continue Reading “Friday Night Shots – Are Boardgame Playthroughs Boring?

App Review – Neuroshima Hex by Portal Games

The Neuroshima Hex app has been around for quite a while. Big Daddy Creations originally did it and it was actually not bad. But it became buggy as hell and the multiplayer (at least asynchronous) became virtually unusable. I enjoyed playing it but finally… Continue Reading “App Review – Neuroshima Hex by Portal Games”

Boardgame Geek Top 300 – Play or Played – #220-211

We’re heading into the home stretch with our look at the Top 300 games on Boardgame Geek. I may even finish before October! Wouldn’t that be a hoot? I’ve actually really enjoyed doing this list, even as I stated last week that it just… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 300 – Play or Played – #220-211”

Updated Neuroshima Hex App Coming in September

(Edit: 8/19/21) – Just confirmed with Portal Games on Twitter that the online play will have asynchronous options. Yay! One of the classic boardgame apps for iOS (and maybe Android? I’m not sure) was Neuroshima Hex, the 1-4 player duel game where each player… Continue Reading “Updated Neuroshima Hex App Coming in September”

Boardgame Geek Top 300 – Play or Played – #290-281

I such a timely guy, aren’t I? The first post in this series came out what seems like months ago (it was over a month ago, on February 15). What’s taken so long for the second post? Would you believe I fell asleep? All… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 300 – Play or Played – #290-281”

Boardgame Geek Top 300 – Play or Played – #300-291

Wow, I’m lazy. Either that, or I’ve been in a bad mental space. You know, 2021 was supposed to be better, but so far it’s barely been marginally better and that’s only because 2020 sucked so much. I finished the Top 200 BGG games… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 300 – Play or Played – #300-291”

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”

Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #140 – 131

Welcome to this week’s edition of BGG’s Top 200 games! The series where I look at those games in the BGG rankings from #200-101, ten games at a time. Two weeks in a row? That’s gotta be a record. Things are actually looking pretty… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #140 – 131”

Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #200-191

After finally getting the last post for the BGG Top 100 games done last week, I was a bit at a loss. What to do for a follow-up? I’m still not getting many games played and while I am behind on a review or… Continue Reading “Boardgame Geek Top 200 – Play or Played – #200-191”

New to Me – April 2019

You know what? I rock. Yes, I do. Not only did I manage to get five new to me games played in April when I only was able to play eight in total, but two of those five games are more than ten years… Continue Reading “New to Me – April 2019”
