Zombicide Survivor Helper App Review

Zombicide Survivor Helper App Review

We love playing Zombicide with our friends. The game supports up to six players (we’ve played with nine players after modifying things a bit). The game is a big hit. One of the things we don’t like about the game is managing the character cards. There are two big reasons to interact with your character’s […]

I Couldn’t Wait: Zombicide Base Game

I’ve endured over 20 days of the Kickstarter campaign for the expansion of co-operative board game Zombicide (here’s my write-up about the Kickstarter effort). With 10 days left the Kickstarter has raised over $1.2 million dollars and has achieved countless stretch goals and bonuses. I missed out on my chance to buy the base game. […]

Zombicide: Season 2 Cooperative Zombie Boardgame Kickstarter

My friends Ajar and ElJay come over for our weekly burger and game night on a regular basis. Sometimes we play games that we own, sometimes they bring over games.

Dungeons and Dragons: Another Childhood Flashback

Dungeons and Dragons: Another Childhood Flashback

The year was 1983. I was either still seven or just turned eight. Due to the age difference between myself and my siblings, it was rare for us to really interact. Before my sister passed away, I was eleven years younger than my next closest sibling. My half-brother RealDoc and his sisters came to visit […]

IKEA First Aid Kit Review

IKEA First Aid Kit Review

At $10 – $12, this first aid kit by IKEA Family is a great value and a good starting point for building a personal trauma kit. They are inexpensive enough to have several on hand, and may appear less threatening than “tactical” equivalents.
