Cards Against Humanity’s “Holiday Bullshit” Sells Out in Less Than 4 Hours

I got an email today from the folks who make the excellent game Cards Against Humanity. Last year at around this time they sold a holiday expansion pack, which I purchased before I even got the retail version of the base game and the expansions. At 12:40 I got the email. I was in the […]

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 […]

I mostly play either cooperative games or slightly competitive games. Yes, we have a few dickpunch games like Risk, China Town, Small World, Monopoly, etc but by and large we like to keep it friendly. I’ve seen too many people get bent out of shape over a board game to enjoy it any more. We […]

We may choose different games depending on the mood, endurance and experience of the folks in a gaming session. Seasoned game players may be fine for several sessions of longer, more intense narrative games such as […]

Copag Plastic Playing Card Review

Copag Plastic Playing Card Review

I wrote about the virtues of plastic playing cards in my Kem card review way back in 2005. High quality plastic playing cards are more durable than their paper counterparts and can also be cleaned if they become dirty. They also shuffle a lot better, essentially always that “new card” feeling you get from paper […]

Selecting Family Games During the Holidays

Selecting Family Games During the Holidays

One of the things I liked the most about family events as a child was playing games with the extended family. We would often play the card game Hearts with two decks and a dining room table full of people. It was hilarious, and I had fun even if I didn’t win. We also played […]
