Black Lives Matter: TTRPG Charity Bundles

Those of you who know me either personally or through the blog know that I’m a big fan of TTRPGs. Though not historically well known for being a progressive or particularly socially aware space in the gaming universe, I’ve seen some great initiatives being undertaken in the community to raise money for worthy causes in recent days. The first one […]

Transformers TCG: Siege II (Wave 4)

Regular readers will know that I’m not only a huge Transformers fan, but also a fan of collectible card games too; having played Magic for more years than I’d care to admit (though on and off – and more casually than serious), I was very excited when I first saw the Transformers Trading Card Game in the wild. The impressively […]

Board Game Review: Terrible Monster

I’ve spent the last few days reviewing small, clever and unique board games – and I’m continuing the theme today. It’s almost Christmas, after all – and surely the festive period is the ideal time to be checking out board games! As tiny games go, Terrible Monster is one of the smallest there is. It’s comprised of just sixteen cards […]

Board Game Review: Dungeon Mayhem

I’ve talked quite a bit on here about my love for tabletop roleplaying, and old school Dungeons & Dragons in particular. Though not an RPG itself, Dungeon Mayhem is a card game ostensibly set in the D&D universe, albeit with a much more cartoony look than players may be used to – along with very simple gameplay. Contained in the […]

Well, that escalated quickly…

The digital ink has barely dried on my very first Nintendo Life review – and yet, here’s another one! Thank you to everyone who was kind about my Beast Quest review, especially those of you who wanted me to get a chance to review a decent game next. Your wish came true! So without any further ado – here’s my […]

Corpus Malicious – Update

I featured the deliciously dark DnD 5e companion Corpus Malicious shortly after its crowdfunding campaign launched on Kickstarter (at which point, impressively, it had already smashed its funding goal) – and, with ten days to go on the campaign, I thought I’d check in and see how it was doing. Turns out the answer to that is very well indeed. […]

Review: Lonely Mountains: Downhill (XBox One)

Available Now – Version Played: Xbox One – Developed by: Megagon Industries – Published by: Thunderful Publishing Though Lonely Mountains: Downhill bills itself as a relaxing ride down a mountain trail, I actually find it pretty stressful most of the time. That’s not to say that I haven’t enjoyed it; nor that the scenery, art style and general ambience aren’t […]
