I feel in some ways, 2017 was a year of gluttony. Games, oh the games! 2018 feels different already. Maybe this is my “resolution” this year but I am already anxious for Labyrinth’s sale and getting rid of games I know I will not play and haven’t played in years.
2018, the year of the exodus?!

Dice are mass produced, for the most part. Big ole machines pouring in the liquidified plastic into the mold, closing the mold, and letting it cool in various ways. At least that is how I am thinking dice are made. Then coming back in a machine to paint the indentations or pips.
But what if the dice aren’t perfect after all this?

There are so many types of dice out there. Different colors, sizes, shapes, and of course sides. It is typically considered a big part of the gaming world. While it is easy to have a game without dice, if a game does have dice, they should be nice. But what makes a good and bad pair of dice?
Let’s talk about some dice!

Legacy games are all the rage nowadays. If you are not familiar, a Legacy game has you play a game multiple times in a row and making decisions that affect the game permanently. The game could ask you to tear up a card, put a sticker on the board, or open a box that introduces new elements to the game.
I think I am going to bite the bullet on another Legacy game.

It is that time of year. One group of people try to watch a horror movie every day, another group changes their Twitter name to a campy Halloween joke, and this group might be doing something. We will see about that.
Regardless, there is one thing that isn’t too terribly cliche to talk about, scary games!

That title was totally done like this. If you played any Resident Evil video game, you would hear it in the voice. It is pretty iconic. And now board gamers can experience the pleasure…well you still won’t hear it since I doubt they will include an audio player in the box to play before each game. That wouldn’t be cost effective and would be awfully silly. But could you imagine having that it in your box to press every time you start the game?! Who would press the button? You could have a different person press it every time new zombies appeared or other monsters as well. RESIDENT EVIL…TWO!!! It would work, right? Might be pretty co…
So yeah, there is a board game being made of this video game.

My final judgement has not been passed but my feelings feel like they are solidifying in stone for this board game. But it is a story, a journey if you will, that I feel like telling. This is a tale of a board game that I am sure a lot of people will say “that’s why you don’t do Kickstarter.”

7 Wonders could be a be considered a classic and a go-to game for many gamers. It plays a lot of people, it has super, simple gameplay, and it has been around the the block for awhile. None of these factors make me think less of it…well maybe one part.
I just don’t think it is a game anymore.

I love me some board games and have a large collection. It is not as large as many people but having 100+ games is nothing to snicker at. This creates situations that are common with most people, forgetting to play all your board games!

If you are like me, you like to wear shirts with graphics on them. Typically they are of your hobbies but sometimes funny things. But have you noticed there are a lack of board game focused gear?
Why is that?
