Tom Vasel is a fairly well known game reviewer and runs the Dice Tower. While he and I disagree on reviewing methods and opinions on some games, the memorial fund he set up is a very worth while cause. Look the benefit auction over, see if something catches your eye, and help out fellow gamers.
I enjoy games that involve a push your luck mechanic. The internal debate of taking another card or rolling the dice just one more time is a favorite, especially when it pays off. Stardock Games, known for their video games, has set sail into the world of board and card games with Dead Man’s Draw.
