    Slim pickings this month in the “Games New to Me” area of boardgaming. I did play a total of 11 games, though, which isn’t too bad. I actually thought it was going to be even worse if it hadn’t been for an unexpected play this... More

    One of the joys of boardgaming for me is playing a new game. Whether it's a new game that somebody else brings and teaches me, or a game that I have bought and finally got to the table, both experiences are pure boardgaming heaven for me. For that... More

    I'm a gamer, but I'm also a history buff. One of my new games bought in December manages to scratch both of those itches, and it is oh so pleasant a feeling! Worlds Fair 1893 is a 2016 game that combines elements of area control and set collection... More

    I just spent...well, a bunch of money on card sleeves over the last couple of weeks, for a total of 7 games. It's the age-old question of the boardgamer, or at least those gamers who play games with cards. To sleeve or not to sleeve their cards? An... More

    Hola! It's been four months since I've posted, but since I've noticed a bit more board game activity on GIO (didn't even know they had a hub!), I thought maybe it would be good to post some stuff and see how it goes.

    We all have had it happen to us. Maybe not in video gaming, but some other hobby. Movies? Reading? Picking on your brother? We get busy, we find ourselves attracted to other things that take up our time that we used to devote to that hobby. And then we... More
  • MMA Manager - Tell Those Fighters What You Really Think!

  • Size Matters - A Rognar the Inefficient "Adventure"

    Life on the road with Rognar, the Inefficient, was usually a lot of fun.
