Tuesday, and the work week is underway. Mine's shaping up to be rather busy with various things going on. Hopefully, that'll make it go by quickly. Another thing that helps is listening to some gaming podcasts while I work.
Today on the dial we have: Geeks of the North Episode 51: Kickstarter; Chance of Gaming Episode 117; Breathing Flames Episode 13: Power to the Player; Anonymous Tabletop Episode 28: Do You Want to Play a Game?; and Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 175: Werewolf Legacy!
Saturday! Woo! My favorite day of the week. Today, I've got D&D (watch me here if you'd like to see me making a fool of myself :P ). And then, tomorrow, it's been a long time since I really did some baking. I'm thinking I'll make some cayenne pepper dark chocolate brownies and some chili powder chocolate chip cookies. Because that's the type of person I am. Whatever you're doing this weekend, I hope it's awesome. Though I know if you're here now, you're here to check out some reviews.
This week we have: The Bloody Inn: The Carnies Expansion, Processing: A Game of Serving Humanity, Senshi, Evil High Priest, Mesozooic, Volfirion, Countdown Action Edition, Reef, Tokyo Metro, and Codenames XXL.
Woo! Saturday! Woo! I am taking it easy this weekend. No scheduled games. No places I have to be. Just chillin' in my den. I've got nachos. I've got miniatures to assemble. I've got Code Red Dew. I've got everything I need to just have a nice, relaxing weekend. Might pull out some spoopy movies, too.
But I know that you are here for the reviews. So let's not keep you waiting.
Today we have: Lovelace & Babbage, Cryptix, Macgyver: The Escape Room Game, Drink, Dice Sumoners, and Paper Tales.
Saturday! Saturday! Saturday! Saturday! Saturday! Saturday! Saturday night's alright for fightin'. Get a little action in.
Yes, it's Saturday, and while it's not night quite yet (at least, where I am at time of posting), that doesn't mean that it's not time for fighting. Though I'm not actually swinging my own fists around. It's my character in D&D. I hope you're out there swingin', too, be it with an RPG character or toy soldiers or on a video screen. Whatever your fight du-jour might be. I know you're here for some reviews, so let's dive into those.
Today we have: Tiny Epic Mechs, Creature Forge Overwhelming Swarm, Waterdeep Dragon Heist D&D Minis, Tyranny of Dragons D&D Minis, Ravage: Dungeons and Plunder, Minerva, and Cat Lady.
I know some of my friends are down at AWA downtown. I'm currently safely at home, grooving to some Sims 4 while I wait for this evening's D&D session. Gotta go take care of that Strahd murder house, y'all! But I know what you are here for are the reviews I know you so desperately desire. So let's get to it.
Today we have: Super Mario Bros. Party Card Game, Snow Time, D100 Dungeon, Tower of Madness, The Deck of Many Animated Spells, Kariba, Deities Domination, Seal Team Flix, Nanty Narking, Brass, Yellow & Yangtze, Menara, and Quests of Valeria.
Monday is over. Tuesday is upon us. The work well is well underway. Let's help speed it along with some gaming podcasts so you don't have to listen to Nina in Corporate Accounts Reveivable answer the phone.
Today on the dial we have: Breathing Flames Episode 10: The Price of Pretty; Chance of Gaming Episode 114; Chance of Gaming Breachstorm Interview; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 251: What we did on our holidays, 2018; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 171: Chat; Playin’ and Slayin’ Episode 23: My Little Zombicide; Lords of the Dungeon Episode 19: Our Dungeons and Dragons Campaign Update and Player Meta; The Rolistes Episode 29 (Bonus 1): UK Games Expo 2018, Brendan Lasalle’s Dungeon Crawl Classics “Symptom of the Universe” (featuring Brendan Lasalle); Episode 96 - Jerry Hawthorne & Colby Dauch talk Comanauts, Gen7, and Plaid Hats!; and Guild Ball Tonight Episode 84: The Blind Agoraphobic has Opinions.
I hope everyone out there being affected by the hurrican is staying safe. A good way to do that is to stay inside and play some board games. And while it's a bit late to pick up a new one for the current storm, having some around for when the next shows up is a good idea. But what games should you get? Reviews can help sort that out.
Today we have articles on: Guild Master, Zero Gravity, Z War One: Exodus, Bad Maps, Draconis Invasion: Wrath, Prowler's Passage, GoTown, Blue Lagoon, Dragon Castle, and Spirits of the Wild.
Woo! Saturday! Woo! Even more woo than Friday! Woo! All the woo!
So, being Saturday, it means it's time for a Review Roundup. So, without further ado, let's get to those reviews I know you all so desperately desire.
Today we have: Machina Arcana, Dark Domains, Guild Master, Bad Maps, Root, Pyramid of Pengqueen, Simulation Theory, Maki Stack, Maiden's Quest, Hannibal & Hamilcar, Drop It, and Space Marine Adventures.
It's not just Saturday... It's long-weekend Saturday. Short of full-on "Vacation Saturday," this is the best kind of Saturday. Just time to do aaaaall the things. What, exactly?... I've not relaly figured that out yet. But I'm sure it'll end up being something... or it'll be nothing, and that's just fine, too. But, before I get to maybe doing something or nothing, I need to get you your reviews I know you so desperately desire.
Today we have: Machina Arcana 2nd Edition, Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig, Carthago, Dungeon Draft, Ticket to Ride: First Journey, Agra, Ruthless, Blitz Bowl, Lost Cities: Rivals, Root, Clank! The Mummy's Curse, Thieves Den, and The Edge: Downfall.
I started my weekend off with some D&D, and that's actually what I'm doing again now (through the miracle of future-scheduling posts). But no matter what you're doing, I know you're here to check out some reviews. So, while my Bard is hopefully not getting stabbed to death, let's see what we've got this week.
We have: Starship Samurai, Tofu Kingdom, Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game, My First Stone Age, Fae, Duhr: The Lesser Houses, HOPE, Dwarves with Swords, and Hero Master.
Mmmmm, Saturday. It's so loving and comfortable and squishable. I just wanna hug it all day. In fact, I think I will. *warmfuzzyhugs for Saturday* Yes, things have gotten weird already. That's how it goes sometimes. But let's get you those reviews I know you all so desperately desire.
Today we have: Bob Ross: The Art of Chill, Tradewarz, Super Camelot, Kilt Castle, Grackles, Exodus, Darkest Night 2nd Edition, Dresden Files Dead Ends and Winter Schemes Expansion, Roar: King of the Pride, House of Danger, and Imperial Settlers: We Didn’t Start The Fire Expansion.

Today we have: Remnants, After the Virus, Missile Command, My Little Scythe, and Endogenesis (can you tell a lot of reviewers were out of town last week?).
Well, it's now the Tuesday after Gen Con. Pretty much everyone is back home and probably back to the office. I know I'm back behind the desk. And I'm sure many of you want the week to go by quickly so you can either just rest this weekend, or bust out all those new games you got at the show. Either way, it's good to have some gaming podcasts to listen to.

So get in all the prep you can now before heading out for the show this week. Me? I'm playing some D&D. But I've planned ahead and scheduled these reviews for you that I know you so desperately desire.

Today we have: Potion Explosion: The Fifth Ingredient, Miremarsh, Ambar, Shaky Manor, Nut So Fast, Jetpack Joyride, Tiny Trees, Azul, and Rise to Nobility.
Hey everyone, Sorry about the posts the other day. As I'd mentioned previously, I wasn't at the office the last couple days. And, well, you know the old saying, "if it isn't one thing, it's another"? That kinda sums up my last 2 days. Not anything godawful, but just... "well... ok, then." So, you kinda got a quick bit of stories this morning, and with the Review Roundup, hopefully we'll be back on track here.
Anyway, today we have: Ganz Schon Clever, Getaway Driver, Onitama: Sensei’s Path Expansion, Impulse, Alien Artifacts, and Tadmor.

Today we have: Outpost: Amazon, Gloomhaven, Clank! The Mummy's Curse, Covalence, Ganz Schon Clever, Helionox, The Mind, Wreck Raiders, Getaway Driver, and Boss Monster: Rise of The Minibosses.
Welcome to Tuesday. I hope your week is going by nicely. I got some exciting e-mails in my inbox this morning, so that was good. Can't quite let you know what they're all about just yet, but you'll find out soon. Needless to say, I'm thrilled with what's coming up. But, in the meantime, it's some gaming podcasts for you.

Saturdaaaaaaaaaay! Woo! My favorite day of the week, as you all know. And while I'm not probably going to be doing much gaming, by the time you read this, I should be stuffed full of tacos and empanadas and churros. So I'm still having a pretty spectacular day.

It's very early on Saturday morning. Well, not as early as it was when I first got up (Now: 6am. Woke up: 3am). I'd love to know why, on weekdays, my brain is all, "man, I dun wanna get up!" while on the weekend it's like, "3am, homebear. Be awake now!" Maybe I'm just so excited about D&D today. I guess we can go with that. But while I get ready for all the things I'm gonna do today, I also need to get you your reviews I know you so desperately desire.
Today we have: Go Nuts for Doughnuts, Sushi Go!, Bamboleo, Cry Havoc: Aftermath, Down in Flames: WWII-Guns Blazing, Gaslands, Dinosaur Island, Dr. Beaker, and Crusader Kings.
Monday has come and gone. Tuesday is here for a while longer. The Work Week does its thing as we make our way back to the weekend, where I'll be celebrating Free RPG Day by playing RPGs and streaming it for everyone to point and laugh at. :P But before I get to my streaming, it's time to listen in on some gaming podcasts.
