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. Players each construct their provinces as they see fit. Will a new Guard…

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…

To avoid this frustration you can always preorder games with us. This allows us to properly gauge interest and order an appropriate amount. (Sometimes games are in such…

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

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. We had a pretty healthy and well-loved stack of them at home. So, I may have fangirled a little bit when the new Archie comic series was announced. I enjoyed Afterlife with Archie,…

Aquaman vol 1 the Trench

Aquaman vol 1 the Trench

While many comic fans have always laughed at the idea of Aquaman being anything more than a joke, Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis take this character in a new direction that proves he is no Joke. Between the beautiful art work by Reis and the humour and drama brought on by Johns, this is an easy book to recommend to comic fans, new and old. The story starts with Aquaman stopping by a restaurant for…

Star Wars: Rebellion 1st play and review

Star Wars: Rebellion 1st play and review

I had a chance to check Star Wars: Rebellion from Fantasy Flight Games.  I must say it is a massive board game!  The board is so large it comes in two pieces!  The box also contains 153 plastic miniatures (gorgeous!), 25 leaders (with stands), 10 custom dice, Over 170 cards, and 2 Faction Boards.   Players (2 – 4) take the sides of the Galactic Empire or the Rebellion during the original Trilogy.  To win…

Pandemic: Legacy Season 1 Red Box Review

Pandemic: Legacy Season 1, Red Box Z-Man Games Plays 2-4 Takes about an hour Highly Recommended/5 stars/Just Get It This past weekend was our 24 Hours of Gaming event for the IWK!

I missed that particular game because I was cracking…

Sailor Moon (AKA I’m a dork who can’t read manga correctly)

Sailor Moon (AKA I’m a dork who can’t read manga correctly)

This is not meant as a review of the anime or manga, but I just wanted to share my recently outed love of Sailor Moon.   I have a confession to make- I am a fan of Sailor Moon. My only real issue is that they are leggy 14 year olds and her boyfriend is a high school student. So, moving that aside, I really do adore the series. It’s colorful and fun.  My first time…
