Wow, over EIGHTY THOUSAND visits to my tabletop #boardgaming   blog since 2012. Pity I haven't figured out a way to monetize it yet. I guess it's a good thing that I write purely out of passion.

Anyway, thanks to everyone who's ever visited! Here's my latest session report and review: Star Wars: Imperial Assault! 
When Star Wars: Imperial Assault was first announced I distinctly remember scoffing at the idea. Soooo, lemme get this straight...you're gonna re-skin Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) with a Star Wars theme. Rea...

Small World feels like a game I should love.  Area control with very little randomness. 

I just...don't like it.

Am I broken?

Sadly, this actually provides some insight into the era that produced the truly dreadful #StarWars Holiday Special.

+David Pretty no, not just that, this has way better scripting, acting... everything is just plain better about it.

The best thing about the Star Wars Holiday Special is the Nostalgia Critics Review of it -'J

Knights of Badassdom is better than Unicorn City...but that ain't sayin' much. #moviereview

For what it's worth, Knights of Badassdom is better than Unicorn City. But that ain't sayin' much.   After slacker Joe (Ryan Kwanten, I.E. Jason Stackhouse from True Blood) gets dumped by his upwardly-mobile girlfriend Bet...

My reaction to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer is less of a reaction and more of a reaction to everyone else's reaction.
Greetings Star Warriors! This blog didn't exist back in 1998 when the trailer for Star Wars: The Phantom Menace first dropped. In fact the term "blog" was coined only one year earlier. There were plenty of internet forums (li...

Board-gamer math: Dominion + Scrabble = AWESOME. Here's my #review of Paperback! #boardgames
Our game of Small World flew by so quickly that Mike had a chance to bust out his copy of Paperback. So, what exactly is Paperback? Well, in a nutshell, it's Dominion meets Scrabble. Desirous of a less abstruse rubric? Then...

If you were to ask me to name a movie that best epitomizes the "magic of cinema", I'd be quick to mention Close Encounters of the Third Kind. #moviereview #closeencountersofthethirdkind  
***WARNING!*** This is gonna be a fairly in-depth analysis and, as such, I'm gonna dip inordinately deep into spoiler territory. Watch first and then read this later!  If you were to ask me to name a movie that best epitom...

Nice write-up! I used to love reading SSRs in the old General magazine.

The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies should have been the perfect Christmas Day family movie. But it's not. #moviereview
