WBC – New Games Galore

After two days at the World Boardgaming Championships, I am happy to say that I played 16 new games and expansions. I got to hang out with some friends, meet some people from Twitter, and tried a lot of games I’ve been aching to learn.

I don’t want to say I’ll buy a game just cause it’s pretty, but I have to admit that I have done just that in the past. I also really wanted to get a look at it, as one of my good friends is a Chemistry Grad Student. I saw that the game was coming out through Dice Hate Me Games and that they...

Hi everybody! 0

Hi everybody!

Wanted to make a special hello and welcome to everyone coming from DiceHateMe.com and really wanted to thank Chris (@DiceHateMe) for the shout out. I had a blast with his crew at Origins 2012 and can’t wait to see them all again. For those looking around, you can look at the games I teach and the companies I volunteer for, or ask me anything you’d like about gaming. I warn you, I’m sometimes a little harsh, but I’m always honest. If I don’t like something about a game, I will tell you up front. Every game is good for someone,...
