Another year, another awards thingy. Might as well keep the traditional alive cause everyone does love lists! It definitely has been an interesting year for gaming this year. Once again I am only looking at games I have played in 2018. Some of these games might’ve not come out last year but I will try to stick to the latest games if I can help it!
Now to the games! Continue reading NTBG Awards of 2018

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow, 11/24, is Small Business Saturday. Why should I be bothering you all with that detail? Well your friendly local game store is most likely a small business! You should think about paying them a visit. If you don’t know what to buy, you can check out current/ongoing list of These 35 Games or you can ask someone who works at your store for some help. They should be able to point you to some real goodies! Or dice…you can never have too many dice.
I know I’m planning to hit up my local store tomorrow morning, how about you?

Everyone loves to adventure! Most of us grew up watching Indiana Jones movies and always wanted a whip and a cool fedora. So who wouldn’t want to do what Indy does in a board game, selling newly found treasures to museums and curating your personal property…wait, what?
Let’s go to our HQ to get to the bottom of this…

Doesn’t everyone dream of being a carpenter? Making floors, roofs, and walls…especially when they are full of color and many tiles. What could be better? Playing a board game of that may be better because it is quicker and less of a mess.
Let’s tile these walls!

“Where’s the new RPG Drama episode?!”
It has come back to that time where the RPG side of things is going on hiatus. The Coriolis campaign has wrapped up, holidays are on the horizon so schedules are funky, and I am in-between games. I’m not sure when a new season will start up but I’ll let you know when one is in the works.
I’m not even sure what game system it will be. Could be HEX, Edge of the Empire, more Coriolis, or something new. Feel free to leave a comment on what you’d want to hear me run next.
Back in the day we didn’t have this fancy technology. No screens to stare at endlessly, no boxes of electronics to twiddle our thumbs to. We had stories (and games, shhhh) that needed to be told by campfire. They were often embellished for dramatic affect. But there is consequences to that.
In comes the nanuk!
