It's a holiday here in the states, so we are taking the day off and republishing an old favorite here on the front page (originally published 04/14/2008). Back in the days when my husband Al and I were newlyweds, we rented the second floor of our house to three guys. Al was the only one with a regular job, and he only worked school hours. The rest of us were often "between jobs" and when we were working, it typically wasn't normal hours. So at our house you could pretty much find someone to...

OK, I've recieved several emails and a phone call asking where today's Cracked LCD is. I kept thinking that maybe Bill Abner had finally had enough of my crap and decided that he would not run this year's Dragon Con 2010 report.

It was about one o' clock in the afternoon when the regrets of insomnia set in - I had slept too late yet again and barely managed to budge myself out of bed, shower - and get ready for what I was unprepared for - by far the longest game of Talisman I had ever played - but also the most brutal session of Tekken 6 I had ever experienced. But we did more than that, my friends, oh yes, we did more. First of all while I waited for my friend...

Here's a list of games...1960: The Making of the President10 Days in the USAAblaze!BlokusCitadelsGuillotineHansaJamaicaKahunaKill Doctor LuckyMr. JackSettlers of CatanTikalVegas ShowdownSo what is the significance of that list? If you answered, a list of mostly mediocre Euro style games, well... I wouldn't necessarily disagree. Some of those games I don't really play much anymore or have as high opinion of as I once did when I bought them, and a few I have since traded away. But the point is that I bought them... and more importantly, I bought them after having played a version of them on my...
