There are many paths to power: brute force, cunning deception, cunning trickery. In Nevermore from Smirk & Dagger games you hold the cards, but you you can’t keep them all. What will you give your opponents lest they turn it into the dagger they stab in your back? What will you keep for yourself? And what will your opponents give you that you can use against them?


Exploding Kittens 1

At game night last night I was finally able to try out a game that I have been hearing hype about for several months now: Exploding Kittens! (more…)

Gen Con 2015 is over, I am home and recovered from the exhilaratingly exhausting (exhilarhausting perhaps?) best four days of gaming. I’ve finally gotten some sleep, recovered my ability to use words, and cataloged this year’s epic haul. (more…)


And with that another Gen Con has come and gone! Gen Con 2015 is in the books and what a time it was! (more…)



Day 3 of Gen Con 2015 is in the books and what a crazy day it was! (more…)

Hey, did you know I’m going to Gen Con? If you didn’t you clearly haven’t been paying attention anything I’ve been saying for the past few week.

On the first count, I wanted to announce that I will be doing a post here each day of Gen Con to chronicle my experience at this great convention; depending on how busy my evenings are these posts my end up being a simple gallery of photos with a short blurb about the day, but I will make sure I do a full run down of things once I get home from the convention.
