Gibberish Changes in 2014

Gibberish Changes in 2014

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. My quality of life has been on the rise, and I hope it […]

Kings of Tokyo Board Game Review

It can be difficult to find a game for up to six players that isn’t a “party” game like We Didn’t Play Test This At All or Cards Against Humanity or more serious, like Elder Sign or Citadels. Even more challenging is to find a game that is also good with fewer than the maximum […]

Left Behind

We play a lot of board games over here. Every Sunday at the least, and frequently several times a week. This means that we try out a lot of new games. Some of them make the cut, and some of them don’t. What’s interesting, though, are games that decline from games that we used to […]

Cards Against Humanity vs We Didn’t Playtest This Card Game Review

Every Sunday we open our doors for burgers and board games. Sometimes we just have one guest, sometimes we have a dozen. Some of our guests are hardcore gamers. Some folks haven’t played a game since they were a kid. We never really know, and that means we have to have an array of games […]

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. […]
