I’ve been really lucky this year to have the opportunity to write more frequently. I attribute part of this to the support I receive from Sedagive?, giving up StarCraft 2 and the jobs I’ve been taking lately, including my current full-time job.

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. […]
We play a ton of games here — board games, card games, video games. In the last three months, we’ve spent an increasing amount of time playing board games on our mobile devices. I play the iPad version of Ascension several times a week, and we also play Elder Sign on our Android tablets. I […]
