Father Geek's review of Cast & Capture - http://fathergeek.com/cast-capture_prepub/ - A new take on a classic card game that entertained families for days
Learning magic by reading dusty books and listening to long lectures can only take a young wizard and witch so far. There comes a time when the knowledge learned must be put to the test in the fiel...

Father Geek's review of Troll Hunt - http://fathergeek.com/troll-hunt/ - An entertaining abstract game full of lights, mirrors, and trolls
I grew up thinking that Trolls were big, semi-intelligent, and could only be killed using fire. Yes, I was raised on D&D. My Norwegian relatives tell me that Trolls are, in fact, not necessaril...

Some say it doesn't hurt to ask. This is blatantly false, as anyone can tell you who has asked an individual for a date, but was rejected.

Father Geek's review of Rough: The Card Game - http://fathergeek.com/rough-the-card-game/ - Not a good game, folks. Made lots of players angry.
John Wayne said (and I absolutely love this quote) "Life is tough. but it's tougher if your stupid." Life has a way of being tough and rough with even the smartest of individuals, not just the dumb...

I don't take it personally and I am unsympathetic to those who buy a game blindly, only to discover they don't like it. The game designers published that which they wanted. It's up to the individual to determine if the game has any personal value.

Pretty sure people are inviting me to play Candy Crush just to see how high they can make my blood pressure rise.

Father Geek's review of Hogger Logger - http://fathergeek.com/hogger-logger/ - a guessing game that uses cards - not everyone's cup of tea
Greek philosopher and mathematician, Plato, said "A good decision is based on knowledge and not on numbers." An agreeable point of view that is not always possible to achieve. Sometimes we have to ...

What happened to me? I used to rage against the machine? Now I lean against the washing machine folding underwear... #40Something

The single most important thing in your life is that thing you lost and can't find and you're late and why can't you find it?!?!?!

I always dislike publishing a less than positive review. I know I am calling someone's baby "ugly". This is why I'm not in politics.

I often ponder what the United States would be like if John Wayne was its president.

The only time it's tough being a game reviewer is when you have to play and teach a game you don't like. #BooHoo

Better Parenting Through Games and Geekiness!
Introduction
Hi, my name is Cyrus.

I am father of 3, a geek, a board/card/dice game fanatic, a technology lover, a comic book reader, an Anime watcher, a music listener, a film buff (no, not really), a devourer of literature, and a bald man. 

I spend my free time on my web site, Father Geek, waxing poetically about the joys of teaching my children important life lessons through play. 

When I am working, I dream of all the things I will do with my free time. When I actually have free time, I usually squander it on something frivolous but worthwhile like playing with my kids.

My personal motto: Better parenting through games and geekiness! Be yourself, share your passions, and connect with your children, your friends, and your family through the medium that makes you the most happy, the most comfortable, and the most excited!
