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”

Blog in Review – 2020

Welcome to 2021! 2020 was a very hard year, not just as a boardgamer but as a person in general. The arrival of COVID-19 and extreme measures taken to counteract it have really taken a toll on me and Dude Take Your Turn in… Continue Reading “Blog in Review – 2020”

Async App Plays and Recording Boardgame Stats

A few months ago, I got into a little discussion with… Continue Reading “Async App Plays and Recording Boardgame Stats”

Ascension Tactics on Kickstarter

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”

Ascension: Delerium arrives on the App!

The first day back at work after a month off is always going to be hard. I wouldn’t know normally because I’ve never done it until this month. While it wasn’t too hard to get back into the swing of things, it was kind… Continue Reading “Ascension: Delerium arrives on the App!”

Ascension – Skulls & Sails Coming in May

I’m a huge Ascension fan, maybe partially because it helped get me back into the whole gaming scene but also because it’s just a fun little deckbuilder. It’s hard to believe it’s been around since 2010 and there are literally tons of expansions (Editor – That could… Continue Reading “Ascension – Skulls & Sails Coming in May”
