Using Google Forms to Keep Track of Ascension Scores

Using Google Forms to Keep Track of Ascension Scores

I play a ton of Ascension, a card-based deck building game. I own the first core set and expansion and while I enjoy it, the digital experience is a lot easier to manage. Unfortunately as of this writing the Ascension app is only available for iOS. I backed the Android and Windows Kickstarter project, and […]

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 […]

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 […]

Microsoft’s WindowsRT Tablet Pricing

Microsoft’s WindowsRT Tablet Pricing

I was pretty excited when Microsoft’s Windows Surface tablet product line was announced. The features sounded like what I’ve been looking for since I owned a slate Windows XP tablet made by Motion Computing in 2004. The ports and capabilities seemed halfway between a power user’s laptop and an Android tablet. External storage, media connection, […]

Logitech Bluetooth Keyboard for Android Devices Review

I am a huge fan of the 7″ tablet form factor. Small enough to fit in a back pants pocket, thigh cargo pocket, or a coat hand pocket, smaller tablets like the Nook, Fire, Nexus 7, or Tab are accessible in just about any situation. If you carry a bag or a purse you can […]

How to Turn Off “Close Friends” Notifications on Facebook

How to Turn Off “Close Friends” Notifications on Facebook

Facebook is known for two things: being one of the most popular Web sites in the world, and rolling out changes with little to no warning and explanation. Such is the latest “Close Friends” list functionality. Basically, Facebook automatically made a list of all the people you interact with most. This is creepy, but okay […]

Micro-Tech Tablet Stylus Review

Micro-Tech Tablet Stylus Review

I’m a big believer in the tablet form factor for personal computing. I have a Barnes and Noble Nook Color, two Amazon Kindle Fires, two iPads, and a Google Nexus 7 on the way. That’s a lot of smudgy fingerprints. I use screen cleaning cloths made by 3M Scotchbrite, but sometimes it’s best to avoid […]

What Will It Take to Get Draw Something Back On Track?

What Will It Take to Get Draw Something Back On Track?

About six weeks ago, I wrote about Draw Something, a collaborative drawing game for the Android and iOS operating systems. At that point, Draw Something had just exploded in popularity. Users were creating 3000 drawings per second, there were over 36 million players, and the makers of the game, OMGPOP, was just purchased by online […]
