10×10 Challenges and You!

It was a little over a year ago that I heard about the 10×10 challenge.

When Excitement Fades: Shadows of Brimstone

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.”
