From the minds of the Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) comes Thunderstone, a member of the card game/board game hybird genre that’s been gathering steam for the past couple of years. Moe and I talked a good deal about this game on the latest episode of Drunken Gamers Radio and you can feel free to check […]
I have only a passing knowledge of the geek god of madness, Cthulhu. I know he’s some sort of HP Lovecraft character and that he’s in every geek game known to man but I’ve never really delved deep into the mythos. With that said, I’ve been more than a little interested in some of the […]
I saw this game tonight at a Barnes & Noble as I was searching for culinary inspiration… then I looked a little closer and thought to myself, “This is why labels are problematic.” Now, I’m not one to judge, but I just don’t think there’s a need for name-calling. Unless I don’t like you.
I was at PAX East over the weekend and good times were had by all. MC Wilson has some delightful pajamas, and I may or may not have made out with some of the L4D2 crew. Conjecture abounds. All of that aside, there were a number of games and tabletop insanity going on at the […]

You may have heard us talk about this awesome board game on Drunken Gamers Radio, or maybe the name sounds familiar to you from the recent news that the game was being translated to both XBLA and the PSN. Either way, it seems that every year, some new and awesome expansion is released for the […]
So I received a gift of awesome recently, in board game form. What makes this game so awesome, you ask? Well, zombies, of course. But not just zombies. Zombies in a mall. Zombies in the Monroeville Mall. The premise of the game is as follows: You have an intrepid band of survivors fleeing the zombie […]
Mad scientists, doomsday devices, minions, money laundering, and theatrical costumes. Mwahahaha is a game that takes the best parts about being a Bond villain and packs them up neatly into a casual escapist experience. Not to mention, you sound like a complete fool when speaking it’s name aloud. Go on, walk into your nearest game […]
Attack! Try screaming it! ATTACK! Feels good, doesn’t it? If the title doesn’t grab you, then there’s no point in reading any further… but I was immediately hooked. After all, if I had ever made a game, this would have been its name. And it ends with an exclamation point, so you KNOW it’s going be exciting! […]
