Spellcaster

Published on August 11, 2015 by

Every year at Gen Con I end up purchasing a few games that a demo convinced me to buy. This year that game was Spellcaster from R&R games and designers Aaron Weissblum and Norman Woods. Spellcaster is what some in the hobby would call a “light” or “filler” game.

Sometimes those words take on a negative connotation in some people minds and in this case that would be a mistake. Spellcaster is a light game there is no denying that fact. It can be played in about 20-25 minutes and mechanically you can only select from a limited number of actions on your turn.

WWE Superstar Showdown

Published on August 7, 2015 by

I’m not going to be one of those people that lies to you and says I’ve never watched wrestling. Because back in the day, during what is now called the Attitude era when WCW had the NWO and WWF had Degeration X I was all in. I bought every pay per view, I even had parties around them. I still remember my lovely wife baking a WCW cake even though she rolled her eyes when we screamed at the TV.

Those days are gone however, a victim of my lack of free time or perhaps lack of interest. I’ll still watch it once in a while if I happen to be flipping stations and it is on, but wrestling is not a part of my life.

What does this stroll down memory lane have to do with Gale Force Nine’s latest entry? Simple, you don’t need to watch wrestling or even know anything about wrestling to enjoy this fantastic game. My 10 year old daughter doesn’t even know what wrestling is and she enjoys this game. So read on and let me tell you why you should play this game as quickly as possible.

Harebrained Schemes is back with another kickstarter, this time for a tactical PC game in the Battletech Universe. Pretty good move since HBS founder  Jordan Weisman created Battletech in the 80’s a time of hair bands and arcades. Read the media alert after the jump.

Homeland Review

Published on July 29, 2015 by

The law of averages tells me at some point Gale Force 9 will produce a game I don’t care for. I love Spartacus, Firefly and Sons of Anarchy. They are all A+ games in my book, each for very different reasons. Well fortunately the streak hasn’t ended because with Homeland Gale Force 9 has managed to deliver the tension of a game like Battlestar Galactica in a fraction of the time.
