To hell with snobbery; everyone should have #Carcassonne in their collection! #boardgaming  
Sadly I live too far away from my parents to visit them around Easter but Cheryl's mom is reasonably close by. As a result I've introduced her to a lot of different board games over the years and she's grown into quite the pa...

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is the #1 reason why I'm so hard on these recent J.J. Abrams reboots. #startrek #moviereview  
There's a very good reason as to why I'm so hard on the J.J. Abrams Star Trek reboot flicks: I saw The Wrath of Khan in theaters as a kid and it set an impossibly high standard for everything to follow. Possessed of a solid s...

I had a poster on my wall that looked a lot like this as a kid. I'd sit and stare at that sucker for hours. ‪ #startrek #enterprise #lifebeforetheinternet

I had something like this as well and would study it for hours, too. As far as I'm concerned every Enterprise has been beautiful, but this one is the ultimate.

I was so impressed by  Star Wars: Imperial Assault, it inspired a new episode of "What's In The Box?!?"  #starwars #starwarsimperialassault #boardgames #unboxingvideo #review

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...

As depressing as Dead of Winter is to play, it's still not as demoralizing as the weather outside right now. #DeadofWinter #boardgames #review  
When every other winter day in the Maritimes looks like this: Most normal people would want to play a board game that looks like this: Or this: Or maybe this: But, noooooo, I gotta be all thematically-appropriate n'...

Elysium might be preachy and CHAPPiE might be uneven but District 9 is still a masterpiece.
  Back in 2009 I wrote the following about Neill Blomkamp's feature-length debut: "Mark my words: District 9 will go down in film history as one of the most important sci-fi movies ever made. It's the best genre film I've see...

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...
