AT GOTY?  Storm Over Dien Bien Phu Review
In many respects the Storm Over System feels like an Ameritrash invention to me. When I compare it to other light war games it generates more fist in the air moments after a dice roll, and more slams of cards on the deck per hour than any of the competition. Whether you should get a Storm over game I guess really depends on whether that's the kind of experience you want from a light wargame. Storm Over Dien Bien Phu is the latest in a line of games using a variation of the...

Let me at them Lancashires; Brass review
A friend of mine once told a joke about Lancashire. He drove across from the Yorkshire border and got lost. There were no road signs, none! He drove for miles down back roads and highways and still none. And then he realised how stupid he had been. Of course, people from Lancashire cannot read. I live in Yorkshire, and we don’t like no Lancashires around heres. Still I think Brass, a game about the Industrial revolution in Lancashire (It started in Yorkshire) is Martin Wallace’s best game, and is in many respects the...
Birdman - Barney's Incorrect Five Second Reviews
Fun movie laden with super strong performances. It's hard to even spot the edits and cuts, it feels like you're watching an actual Broadway performance since the whole thing is so fluid (I still can't figure out how they filmed an entire movie like this exactly). These have to be the best performances yet for Emma Stone and Zach Galifinakis (who you may not even recognize). Edward Norton and Michael Keaton are both fairly strong too. Naomi Watts is ok. Some good laughs, some good stressful moments, I can see this movie getting lots of attention...
Fantasy Flight Games® to Merge into Asmodee Group™
Paris, France; Roseville MN, November 17th, 2014. Today, Asmodee – a leading international publisher and distributor – and Fantasy Flight Games – a worldwide recognized hobby games publisher – proudly announced the pending merger of the two companies. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.  
Games Of The Years
I got involved in this hobby seven years ago, and I’ve been writing about it pretty steadily for about three, with occasional pieces before that. At some point every board game writer will have to deal with the expectation to crown their “game of the year.” This is tricky for a lot of reasons. First of all, the bulk of hobby game releases are clumped in the last four months of the year, after GenCon in August and Essen in October. It’s not uncommon to miss playing major releases for months, even years, while those games...
The Devil's Cauldron Episode 4: September Showers
(In game terms rain means several things. First, there will be no air drop and no air support for the paratroopers. Also movement costs more unless the units are in column on a road. And most important there is a negative modifier to all combat.) September 19th 1944: The skies open up and the rains come and do not let up. The drop scheduled for today is pushed back until the 20th and the already soggy ground becomes a virtual morass.     The Red Devils...
Sigh.  I screwed up a short time ago and posted a video I'd already posted here, I apologize.  This is the one I meant to do. Slide text: Game Design: Discussing “The Board”Dr. Lewis PulsipherPulsiphergames.com“Game Design” channel on YouTube Describing, not DefiningBecause as soon as someone says “definition”, someone else will nitpick itGiven the loosey-goosey nature of English, absolutely clear definitions are nearly impossibleSo, I’m just going to talk about game boards, not “define” Why Boards?A board is a natural way to depict maneuver and geospatial relationshipsWhich are...

Nightcrawler - Barney's Incorrect Five Second Reviews
What a climax! Probably the best one since Zero Dark Thirty, my heart was a-racin'! Hard to believe that a first-time director can give that sense of voyeurism. This was the tenth movie of 2014 I've seen and I'm happy to say I've seen 8 or 9 really good ones, this is one of those. Jake G finally shows some range instead of the same mopey character performances he tends to give (Source Code was the most active I've ever seen him before this). He gets to play a guy who you really hope you never...
