I blame X-Wing for a lot of things. I blame it for making me read more than is decent about the expanding universe of Star Wars. I blame it for the gaping hole in my bank balance. Most of all, though, I blame it for turning me from a player into a collector. Those of your who’ve been with us for the long haul will remember the amount of words I used to lavish on getting people to play their games. All the dire warnings against acquiring another identikit cube pusher when so many gamers already...

Really fun collection of four short stories, two of which are outstanding, one is really good and one...just good. It's a Spanish movie from Argentina and Spain originally titled "Relatos Salvajes." It's muy importante to see it in its original language (with subtitles) as opposed to seeing it dubbed. You don't want to miss any of these performances. The first two stories are so insanely good, I wanted to rush out the theatre and tell everyone within shouting distance that they HAVE to see this. Then the next one was "only" excellent...

Bit of a different format this time. After months of trying, I realised that the usual breakdown of my cultural activities was of interest to no-one. Plus I'm not really at my best talking about films and books. So when I do this from now on you'll get one linked board game review and one in-depth look at something else nerd-related. Probably a video game most of the time. Board Games The last thing I looked at for Shut Up & Sit Down has to rank as one of the most unusual. Legion...

First new 2015 movie I've seen and it was a real good one. It's a musical documentary done by Ethan Hawke on a great piano player turned even greater teacher who made a personal impact on him. I never thought Ethan Hawke was much of an actor but he does have a bit of Midas touch effect on many things he works on (Boyhood, Before Sunset/Sunrise) so I had to give this a shot. The movie starts off pretty slow but it crescendos in the final act as you get to see the...

One of the unexpected effects of regularly reviewing games is how jaded I've become. It takes an enormous amount to impress me nowadays. And even for titles that make the grade, it's rare that they grip me for a long time. Readers demand novelty, so the old makes way for the new. Sometimes a game still gets its claws in me and demands play time in the face of all competition. The last video game to achieve that was Hearthstone, early last year. The last board games were Wiz-War and X-Wing back in 2012. ...
