Rampage - I'm Not Cute...I'll Mess You Up
I'd heard almost nothing about this game, except for the fact that it was a dexterity game and that it looked cutesy, but I'm a sucker for dexterity games, especially ones depicting wholesale carnage in a city of meeples. Further, I'd heard that the meeples come in six colors depicting different types of personality, such as soldiers, old men, and blondes, and that who you ate mattered. Since I've had extensive appearance experience eating blondes, I thought it would be a good fit. I un-pledged my 250$ or so from the new Dwarven Forge Kickstarter because I already have...
 
 
Wreck Age: Post-Apocalyptic Wargaming Done Right
For me, the gold standard for a miniatures game has little to do with the fiction that created the world where the game takes place, and even less to do with the miniatures. Miniatures are awesome, and I have a lifelong love affair with them, but I don't think that the quality or look of the miniatures has anything to do with whether the game is good or not. The fiction might augment a game that's already good, but if the game is bad, it's like putting beautiful, fresh cut flowers on top of a festering...
 
 
Cardboard Mechwarrior: Armor Grid Mech Attack
Let me tell you a story... Mechwarrior 2 was released back in the mid-90s and I was a few years away from getting my first car (the vehicle that took me away from the serious videogaming that I used to do).  I played a ton of MW2.  Loved it.  Hundreds of hours spent turning big formidable death machines into scrap heaps.  love the concept behind Mechwarrior/Battletech.  But I haven't found a good Mechwarrior video game that gives me that same feeling MW 2 did, even though I've been keeping up and trying them as they come and go. ...
 
 
So, there's a new game on the block which is all coop and minis-centric. Check out the bullet points: 1. S/F themed.  2. By at least one of the guys who designed War of the Ring.  3. Modular boards.  4. Enemy AI cards.  5. Events.  6. Campaign rules where the outcome of a mission future missions.  7. An experience system where you level up mid-mission.  8. Dice with lots of little symbols.  ...
 
 
TrashFest NW 2014
For years I've had to endure yearly posts about FATties gathering en masse for the tribal rituals called TrashFest; a call that brought FATties from all parts of the globe including my beloved Canada. Even the bloody Brits got in on the act a couple of years ago and they don't even have dentistry for Baal's sake. Well rest easy friends, all my pent up angst was finally quelled on Feb 15th of this year when I held the NorthWest’s first TrashFest in Vancouver, BC. The Fest got underway at 9am, when two of my gaming buddies...
