Poll on Kotaku on favorite MOBAs. Clearly we know which one to vote for:

http://kotaku.com/whats-your-favorite-moba-1681406463
MOBAs are all the rage these days. But the hybrid part-action, part-RTS, part-turret defense genre is also so new still that there haven't been that many great ones yet. So which is your favorite?

The Cartography kickstarter just released a new video with much better explanation of how the game play works:

If you like Go and/or tile placement games, you should check this one out!
You could call this update 3.5. I've added a second game play video with commentary explaining a little more about how the game works. I'll explain how each turn works, how capturing works, when the game ends and how a winner is determined.http://youtu.be/W5Y9GzfePMo You can also scroll about half way down the main page or view it on YouTube at http://youtu.be/W5Y9GzfePMo Expect to see another update soon with new stretch goals and more exciti...

I know I'd definitely like to see more.

I've only watched the first five minutes, but saving this for later:

Charlie Goes To Burning Man

A 81 year old's first time going to burning man - It doesn't sound all that dissimilar from my own first time.

I was aiming for dragon, although I think it came out more goblin-like. Thanks!

Are you into dinosaurs AND board games?

You may want to check this out. It seems like a pretty cool concept for a board game:

This kickstarter is soooo close! And they just announced the 4 player version of the game. If you like Go and Carcassonne, you should definitely check out this one.
Cartography: A map-making, territory claiming, strategy game. 2 players, ages 10 and up. Adjustable play time starting at 15.

I just found this new board game on kickstarter:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jonopus/cartographytm-make-your-mark-on-the-maptm

It looks like a cross between Carcassonne or Taluva and Go, all three of which are games I love!
