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

Surviving a Convention (with children)

Surviving a Convention (with children)

Convention season is upon us! A couple years ago I attended my first ever BIG convention. It was Fan Expo’s 20th anniversary with the equivalent of a city in attendance. I believe it was something like 125,000 people over 4 days. It was amazing and insane. We spent a lot of time in Artist’s Alley and even more time waiting in line for photographs and autographs and food. It was an amazing experience- the staff…

Wish You Could Be a Better Artist? Draw!

Everyone needs a hobby. For some of us creating vibrant illustrations is the hobby of choice. It’s a great creative outlet and a way to put your vivid ideas on paper.

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.
