It has been said that the greatest evil masterminds in history were also really good at Spelling Bees. If such is the case, the government should be carefully watching who wins these contests. In t…

Father Geek's review of Mr. Game! - http://fathergeek.com/mr-game/ - A game of wit, luck, and creative rules that you make while playing
For every rule book there is a Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) sheet. For every typo on a card there is an errata list. Mistakes are made and not every corner can be covered. Game designers go out …

The hardest thing about being a reviewer is taking another person's verbal abuse. Opinions are nothing more than opinions, folks. Be cool.

Father Geek's review of The Exodus of Israel - http://fathergeek.com/the-exodus-of-israel/ - A forgettable game that fails to achieve its goals
Disbelief, failure, and consequence. That is how one could sum up the reason for the 40 year curse of the Israelites who traversed the desert suffering hardship, famine, death, and despair. But it&…

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!
