As you may know, I (Firestone) have jumped down the kobold hole of RPGs lately. I’ve played the excellent Star Wars Roleplaying Game from Fantasy Flight Games. And I have a group that meets every two weeks to play Pathfinder. And now I’m dipping my feet into Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition. I’m collecting books and getting ready to run my first campaign as a DM with my 11-year-old and his friends. So we’re going to be including some D&D supplements with our regular board game reviews. Don’t worry: We still love board games, and we’ll be reviewing those as usual.
This first book we’re reviewing is a supplement that gives DMs more info for running the monsters in the game. I’m not sure who Volo is, but he’s got a lot to share about monsters. So is this book everything it’s krakened up to be, or is it just mis-guided? Let’s find out!
Hey, everyone. We hope your summer is going well. Things are wrapping up, and we went back-to-school shopping the other day. It’s both terrible and awesome! Right now, though, we’re here to highlight a couple of Kickstarter campaigns. So let’s get to it!
Can you imagine heading into the West? Untamed and unmarked land as far as the eye can see. Endless opportunity. Dangers! Well, as we’ll see in today’s review of Old West Empresario, it’s your chance to tame that land! You’re setting up a city, and looking to run it better than your opponents. So is this the 24 karat nugget you’re looking for, or is it just fool’s gold? Let’s find out!
Hey, everyone! We’re halfway through the summer, which is crazy! Here in Colorado we’ve had temperatures in the 90s for a week now, so we’ve been staying inside and playing games. But what are some upcoming games you might want to check out on Kickstarter? Well let’s find out!
It’s hard to believe one month of summer is almost gone! We hope you’re having some fun summer adventures. Some of those adventures might involve board games, so it’s a great time to look at a couple of campaigns on Kickstarter right now.
Hey, everyone! It’s another week of Kickstarter Weekly, where we highlight a couple of campaigns for you to check out—so let’s get to it!
Do you live in a state where Spring lasts only a week or so? That’s how it feels here in Colorado right now. It was rainy and cold, and suddenly we’re in the 80s. It’s Vacation Bible School week here, so we’re busy shuttling kids to and from church. But we still wanted to talk about a couple of campaigns that have us excited. So let’s get to it!
Happy Monday, everyone! The Summer is officially here, as the kids are out of school and looking for fun! If you’re considering a new board game for your fun times (and who doesn’t?!), then we’ve got a couple of Kickstarter campaigns to let you in on. Let’s get to them!
Hey there, faithful readers! I't’s another week, and another round of Kickstarter Weekly! This week we’ve got a campaign for some cool custom minis, a terrific game bag, and a campaign from our very own Jeremiah Isley! Let’s get to the good stuff!
Today’s review is going to be short, sweet, and to-the-point. Here at Theology of Games, we’re big fans of Level 3B’s Game Canopy bags. You can check out our Double-Take Review right here. But if there was one “disappointment,” it was that I’d have to move back to the gaming tub whenever I wanted to bring one of my long games. And I’ve got a lot of those: Torres, Java, Cyclades, Kemet, Concordia, and probably 15 others. Well I’m disappointed no longer, because Level 3B is introducing Deep Space, the bag we’ve been waiting for. Let’s check it out!
