I was fortunate enough to be sent a preview copy of the Corruption expansion for the game Council of Verona from designer Michael Eskue and Crash Games. I love the base game, and my family loves playing with the Poison expansion, so I was really excited to get an opportunity to play it early! You […]

One of my favorite things about GenCon 2014 was being able to meet so many of the people from the board game community. Everyone from designers to publishers to artists to reviewers to enthusiasts were in attendance. I got to meet YouTube celebs like Boyan Radakovich. I got to play games with publishers/friends like Randy […]

Tl;dr. I needed a better way to keep track of multiple backed Kickstarter projects and developed a nifty spreadsheet. I’m looking for community feedback on how it could be improved. Hello, my name is Jason and I’m a Kickstarter addict. My addiction started simply enough. I discovered a project that promised to transport me back […]

Gen Con, as expected, was AWESOME! While I didn’t get to do evertying on my list, I did get to do a GREAT many things.  And, as I hoped, I got to experience more than I had planned on. My first day of GenCon started with an official TableTop event run by Boyan (thegamesmith)! I […]

GenCon is just around the corner, and I. CAN’T. WAIT. Last year was the first year I attended, and was lucky enough to go with some friends who had gone before. It was OVERWHELMING. There was so much to see and do! I’ll admit that I spent the majority of my time in the Exhibit […]

It is pretty rare in our household when a game is thoroughly enjoyed by the majority of the family (that means 3 of 4, not 5, since Maddie isn’t really old enough to play).  It’s even more rare when Jenn is one of that majority.  And even rarer STILL when she specifically suggests playing games […]

With vacation on the horizon (CAN’T WAIT), we’ve been putting together a stack of games that we thought would be good to take with us.  Our vacation is mostly a beach/sun/outdoor vacation, but I’m sure when we’re tired from a long day of playing, we’ll be looking for ways to settle in and relax.  And […]

Brynna wanted to play some games this afternoon before they went over to swim with the neighbors.  We decided to play a couple of quick card games. First, she chose Spot It.  Spot It is Brynna’s go-to quick game.  Unfortunately for me, I have to REALLY concentrate to have a chance at beating her.  There’s […]

Got a chance to play some Formula E with my girls the other night!  I’ve been excited to try this game since it first landed on Kickstarter.  IMO, Clever Mojo Games knocked it out of the park!  We’ve had luck with card-based racing games (especially Salmon Run) in the past, so I couldn’t see how […]

Lat night was Funk Family Game Night #50!  We should’ve planned something big, but it was fairly spur-of-the-moment.  We decided to have a trivia game night.  🙂
