Happy Thursday, Fellow Gamers and Gentle Readers!
Another week down in the countdown to the Best Four Days of Gaming – there’s only a mere 27 days left before GENCON is finally here! I’m still combing through the Event list myself for any last minute additions to fill in the holes in my schedule. But to be honest, there isn’t much time left unaccounted for this time around, which is probably a bad thing, considering I need to leave some time to hit the Exhibition Hall and meet with publishers and game designers! But I should have plenty of content for some blogs during and after the convention, and I’ll be taking plenty of pics to post of all the happenings at GENCON 2014! (more…)

Warmest greetings, Fellow Gamers and Gentle Readers…
…and I really do mean warmest, as the temperature in my domicile absolutely precludes me being anything but sweltering! Oh, as surely as I lamented about the unseasonably freezing weather in the Vale of the Wolverine this last winter, the current midsummer heat is just as oppressive… but at least there are no annoying piles of white obstructing the ground!
As I’m sure you are doing, I’m counting down the days to the best four days of gaming this year, and I think that this will likely be a memorable GENCON indeed! (more…)

Happy Friday, Fellow Gamers and Gentle Readers!!!
The month of June is finally coming to an end. And although that means that summer is passing by far too swiftly, it’s also bringing us all that much closer to GENCON 2014! So it’s somewhat of a mixed blessing, to be sure!
I hope you all have some great plans for this coming weekend. I’m off to Chicago for a mini gamefest night of board games with friends, followed the next day by a cookout on the beach. (more…)

Hail and Well Met Fellow Gamers & Gentle Readers!
I’m sure you’ve been wondering where I’ve been the past couple weeks, especially if you’ve been reading my reviews for some time now. I had to take a little respite after a bit of a health crisis – I needed time to convalesce after a “procedure” – but I’m pleased to say that I’m feeling much better. And most importantly, am much healthier for having gone through it all!
Regretfully, I had to forego visiting Origins Game Fair this year, but I’ve heard from other attendees that it was a very impressive turnout. Well, there’s always next year, (more…)

Some of my Readers might have noticed that it’s been a long time since I’ve written a blog about the new edition of Dungeons & Dragons. In fact, the last time I blogged anything regarding that new RPG dubbed “D&D Next” was back in August of 2012 – and admittedly, I was a rather outspoken critic of the project.
In the early fall of 2012, I made a conscious decision to back away from all things D&D Next, and I think I made the right decision. The main reason I backed away is due to the fact I sensed I was becoming too emotionally invested in “edition rage”, and as we saw during the Edition Wars of 2007-2008, (more…)
