This not sponsored by Mox Boarding House. All opinions are mine and mine only. I’ve always wanted to review game stores, and it became part of my goal of starting this blog. I recently found myself taking a trip to the Seattle area, and I used it as a chance to check out the popular […]Read more "Vacation is always nice, especially when you get to play games"
It’s a new year, so it’s a perfect time to talk about…last year! Let’s go through my 2017 year in review. I started streaming last year, which was something I’ve planned for a while. I started my own Dungeons and Dragons playgroup (future post to come about that). I also got to play Magic for […]Read more "2017 Gaming Year In Review!"
Figuring out what kind of games to bring to the table is usually the hardest part of planning your game night. Do you only bring games you love? Do you want to run a tabletop RPG campaign? Is the best option to grab a handful of shorter games for a taste of everything? There’s no […]Read more "Pick for Pick – choosing games for game night"
The post Con blues have always been a thing, especially with really fun ones, like Comicpalooza in Houston, and now the most recent PAX South in San Antonio. I only got a Saturday pass, but still had a blast. This year felt like it had a lot more to offer, even though they were working […]Read more "Conventions are always crowded…this one was PAX-ed!"
Wooo! First post in forever! I originally started this as a way to keep sane in between job searching. Update: the reason I’ve been missing for so long (yeah, all like 5 people that follow this were SO disappointed I bet) is that I got a job right after my last post! Yay! So that’s […]Read more "Cracking PAX and cosplay adventures"
Do you love games like Mafia or Werewolf? Do you hate your friends? Do you like accusing everyone of being a spy? Are you constantly paranoid of those around you? Or is an ability to conceal a hidden identity more your style? Does the Texas rain have you trapped inside this week? Then The Resistance is just […]Read more "I couldn’t RESIST posting about this one"
Playing games has been a huge part of my life, so much so that I started this blog! I’ve been a bit busy this week, so instead of writing a review of a game, I thought it’d be a nice time to reflect on the reasons I write about and play games, the people. Yay […]Read more "Here’s to the biggest reason we play games! (well me at least)"
So this past weekend was marked by the beginning South by Southwest, and that means one thing. SXSW GAMING EXPO! It was a lot of fun being able to test all of the games. Despite there being a great presence of video games, the board game creators definitely had a presence. I was able to test […]Read more "It’s been awhile, but it was SXSW!"
Pro-Tour Madness This past weekend, Pro Tour Fate Reforged was held in Maryland. This high level Modern formatted constructed tournament was the first time we would get a chance to look at popular decks before the meta settles after the ban list came out, taking out Treasure Cruise, Dig Through Time, Birthing Pod, and re-releasing […]Read more "Modern Monday Madness with a Tiny Update!"
So because of pre-release, I was thinking of adding a little section of this blog to talking about one of the games that has taken over my life, Magic the Gathering. If you’re new to the game, you can read about it on the various sites, like the “New to Magic” section on the MtG […]Read more "First Magic Monday! Let’s try and cruise through this."
