Top 100 (#100-91)

Broken Meeple

The format may be subject to change as I go on depending on workload and capacity (10 videos will be a hard one), but this should be fine - I think the main change will be how many videos I do via live stream. Currently the Top 20 will definitely be live, but let me know if I should extend that to Top 50 or something?

Riftforce – First Thoughts

The Giant Brain

In the long, long ago. In the before time. When people could hug each other and play games around a table, Jamie and I attended UK Games Expo 2019. On day 2 of that con I had been directed to a small game piggybacking on another stand. That game was originally called Chapter 2 and I was accused by some, looking at no Rory Sommers of Polyhedron Collider in particular, of being a hipster for calling it my game of the con

Gamer types (Topic Discussion)

Tabletop Games Blog

Let’s have a little fun and see if we can somehow classify the people we play board games with. Don’t worry, the article is tongue-in-cheek. I’m not trying to label people in a certain way. We’re all unique and different and we change over time. Yet, I do reckon you will probably see yourself or one of your board game friends in one of the groupings in this article. Oh, and by the way, we’re all gamers – whatever games we like to play. We’re all here to have fun.

Lost Tomb of the Bitchin’ Chimera: Punk Band Dead Milkmen to release D&D module

Geek Native

Punks The Dead Milkmen have been active on and off since 1983 and recently released their political ballad (We don’t need) This Fascist Groove Thing. Yeah, it’s based on Heaven 17’s song but oddly manages to feel more fun, sound twice as urgent and is hugely topical.
