INCURSION in Review
Nah, you guys probably wouldn't like Grindhouse Games' INCURSION. I mean, sure, it's got Nazi werwolves and all in it...but it doesn't come spilling over with plastic miniatures and fancy terrain pieces. And it has old-time cardboard stand-ups if you don't buy the miniatures. That means you might have to TURN THE PIECE to see the picture. What a hassle! But I like INCURSION, and I like it a lot.

Conversation With An Innovator #2 - Colby Dauch, Plaid Hat Games
In continuing this interview series, I contacted the creative genius and owner of another small-press game publisher, Colby Dauch of Plaid Hat Games. Colby has been immersed in the gaming industry for many, many moons and has worked on high-profile projects such as Heroscape, as well as his own product, the new and exciting game, Summoner Wars. His story is inspiring and really goes to show what a man with some passion and some big, brass balls can do when he sets his mind to it. He, personally, spent several weeks on the "Hotness" list at boardgamegeek.com and his...
 
 
When he paused I knew he was a Cylon. He didn't need to do anything. Pause, Cylon. As he stuttered I imagined a brig door at the far end of the huge ship swinging open.Alright maybe you need a little bit of background into the group to appreciate that this has nothing to do with strategy or tactics. I'm a tactical guy don't get me wrong; I can work the decision tree with the best of them. But sometimes it's even easier than that, and maybe even more dependable. Commander Adama was Commander...
