The Book of Rituals Review

The Book of RitualsMy partner’s in her lab again. I can hear her joyfully exclaim when she discovers, growl when a breakthrough slips through her fingers. She’s been at this for days, alone and working by candlelight, ever since we stumbled upon the final ingredient to the philosopher’s stone. Something seems to call to her, which is most […]

Land vs Sea Review

Land vs SeaKetchup vs. mustard. Skiing vs. snowboarding. Purses vs. handbags. Soft shell vs. hard shell. Unicycles vs. bicycles. Flip flops vs. sneakers. These age-old contests have left generations of people pondering which side should be victorious. (Except the unicycle/bicycle one. That’s a no-brainer victory for the unicycle. I’m also partial to handbags, but I’m willing to […]

Godtear Review Toys & Games 

Godtear Review

GodtearTear is a funny word. It can mean to rip something apart, but it’s also a noun for the liquid that comes out of your eyes. When I first saw the box cover for Godtear, I immediately thought it was the first definition. I was like cool, a game about a world ripped apart by […]

Second Inquisition – Vampire the Masquerade Review

The topic is usually one shrouded in secrecy in other Vampire the Masquerade media and always lurks in the background like a shark under the water, always a constant threat to the vampire protagonist. Whether […]

Rajas of the Ganges: The Dice Charmers Review

Rajas of the Ganges The Dice CharmersMy wife and I were heading down to visit my quietly brilliant 16-year-old niece, so I suggested we play a game. I needed something portable and easy to teach, but also a little more advanced than a typical gateway game because my niece could beat adults at Ticket to Ride when she was eight. I […]

Roll Player Adventures Review

Roll Player AdventuresMy first gaming love was Dungeons and Dragons. Like many people my age I started with the red and blue boxes before progressing to the Advanced D&D rules and played several other editions over the ensuing years. A lot of board games try to be that ever elusive RPG-in-a-box that doesn’t require a game master. […]

Legacies Review

LegaciesI’m at my desk, typing away at this review when the door bursts inward, and two children rush to my side. “Dad! Dad!” shouts the oldest, only five feet away from me. The youngest watches my fingers type this sentence and waits for a reaction. “Dad!” The youngest’s eyes go wide, knowing that the older […]

Star Trek: Missions Review

Star Trek MissionsIn 2017, WizKids Games published a little combo builder called Fantasy Realms. To be honest, I had not even heard of this title until Red Rising was released last year. Publisher Stonemaier Games said his inspiration for Red Rising was based on Fantasy Realms. I’m not sure if that bit of publicity helped the remaining […]
