A review: Kingsburg

A review: Kingsburg

Kingsburg By Scott Brownlee “Your majesty, I feel the coming of winter signals most poorly for my territory. This year’s crop was small, and we have been most devoted to maintaining your standing armies to prevent the resurgence of the goblin invaders.” Build your territory and rise in status in Kingsburg, a game of management and risk for two to five players.

Scythe: A first play review

Scythe: A first play review

I had a chance to play Scythe this weekend with some friends.  It is probably one of the most sought after games right now and after a single play through I see why. Scythe is set in an alternate history of the 1920s during a time of unrest in Europa.  This worker placement / area control game has beautiful art on both the game board and the various cards, great miniatures, and a TON of…

Let’s talk about Riverdale. Fair warning *SPOILERS*

But before we get to that, I just want to be clear that I was an Archie fan growing up. I was on Team Betty. I begged my mother every time we set foot in a grocery store for another Archie book.
