UnPub 7: the Games I Want to Play

There are a ton of interesting games that will be shown off and tweaked during the upcoming UnPub weekend, but as always, there are a few that have caught my attention as I prepare for the trip. Based on the UnPub program so far, these are the games currently on my radar, organized by table…

Weekend Gaming – Giants, Jungles, & Dragons, Oh My!

Last weekend had been scheduled as something of a gaming weekend for a while, with plans to get back into both of the campaign games I’ve been playing. The plan was to jump back into SeaFall on Friday night, before then leaping back into the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game on Sunday. However, things change, and…

SeaFalling Once More

On Friday night, we once again met at East Coast Gaming to explore uncharted waters in search of the Island at the End of the World. It had been fully three months since we’d last played back in mid-January, and so the question of the hour was can we remember what on earth we’re even…

Imperial Assault Broken Token Insert

Confession time – I actually replaced someone else’s handmade custom insert with a commercial product. That’s right, I’m a monster who didn’t deserve Jason Dinger’s hard work. But just let me explain… I store my games sideways for the most part, and even when I don’t, I occasionally carry them sideways., So, when Jason generously…

Board Games at the Beach 2017

For the last couple of years, Cape Fear Games in Wilmington, NC has dedicated the last weekend in April to running a local gaming event called Board Games at the Beach. This year will be their third year running the event and I haven’t missed one yet. It’s already a can’t-miss part of my yearly…

The Five By: The Games of Episode 6

This is another great episode full of interesting games. We’ve also hit a mini-milestone as our BGG geeklist directory of games covered on the show has crossed onto a second page! 00:30 Lindsay – Alchemists I finally managed to play Alchemists in 2016 and LOVED the game, even though I was pretty terrible at it….

Games Played: 17 Games Learned: 9 Games Taught: 5 People Played With: 22 Animal Friends: 4 New-to-Me…

Granite Game Summit: Saturday & Sunday

On Saturday morning I woke up at 7am, groaned at the time, and went back to sleep. Unfortunately this resulted in my not making it out of bed until 10:30 which was later than I had hoped. I quickly got ready and messaged Bill to see if he wanted me to bring him a Chai…

Granite Game Summit: Friday

I wrote last week about being excited to attend the Granite Game Summit in Nashau, NH. Now that I’m back home, and back to work, it’s time to talk about just how fantastic a time I had last weekend. For some ridiculous reason (ie. I wanted to get as much gaming time as possible), I…

Gaming Resolutions – April

I’m posting this from the airport as I make my way to the Granite Game Summit in Nashau, New Hampshire for a weekend of gaming with some people I don’t see nearly often enough. But fun travel doesn’t mean I get to avoid holding myself accountable, so once again it’s time to revisit this year’s…

Looking Forward to the Granite Game Summit

This weekend I’ll be making my first foray into the wilds of New Hampshire, looking for games and friends. Given that I’m actually headed for the Courtyard Marriott in Nashua to attend the Granite Game Summit, it probably won’t take too much searching to find them, but I guess that depends on how well Patrick…

The Five By: The Games of Episode 5

Of the five games featured in this episode, I have only played three, all of which I actually own. The other two were complete mysteries to me, games I’d heard the names of but not much more than that. This had me nervous for the sake of my poor wallet as my co-contributors tend to…

Collection Update: March 2017

I didn’t expect to come home from UnPub 7 with a ton of stuff, but in the end that’s exactly what happened causing a decent amount of collection growth, and still no reduction. ADDED Games Clank! – purchased from The Games Keep at UnPub 7 The Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game – KS fulfillment Fuji…
