New to Me – April 2023

As mentioned in my April Gaming post, April was not a banner month for games. Too much time off and missing a regular game day really sank that. It also affected my “new to me” games because I only got two of them played!… Continue Reading “New to Me – April 2023”

Review – Cape May

What’s the only major tourist destination in New Jersey? Yes, Cape May! It’s a beautiful oceanside town, at least from what I saw on the Blacklist episode it featured in. (Yes, I’m aware of Atlantic City. This is kind of an inside joke, but… Continue Reading “Review – Cape May”

SHUX 2022 Retrospective

Last weekend, for the first time in almost three years, I actually went to a game convention. COVID really did put a damper on things. SHUX is the Shut Up & Sit Down gaming convention held at the Convention Centre in my home town… Continue Reading “SHUX 2022 Retrospective”
