RPG History Lesson at Bundle of Holding

There's something a bit different about the current Bundle of Holding.  Usually, the bundle includes a selection of RPGs and RPG supplements, and that's great!   This time, we have a history lesson about RPGs and publishers in the form of the Designers &  Dragons series.  This is a series I have long had my… Continue reading RPG History Lesson at Bundle of Holding

Judging a Game by Its Cover

Just a short pictorial post today.  Having recently spent some time looking through the work of the late Wayne England, I’m struck by how much artistic talent exists within our fantastic little hobby and the industry that surrounds it.  This conviction was further reinforced by my recent reading of the Shadows of Esteren rulebook and viewing… Continue reading Judging a Game by Its Cover

14 Hour Time-lapsed Twilight Imperium 3

This is excellent.  Reddit user Plolock has shared a fantastic time-lapse of one his recent games of Twlight Imperium 3.  TI3 is a fantastic game, but it is also long and cumbersome.  This video boils down a marathon 14 hour session into fewer than 4 minutes.  It makes for interesting watching: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbnkALBxWA0 Great video!  I really… Continue reading 14 Hour Time-lapsed Twilight Imperium 3

Card Game Reskins Are the Shovelware Titles of the Tabletop Hobby

I’m sure that all halfway dedicated videogamers will be aware of the concept of shovelware.  This is generally low quality software, churned out for quantity rather than quality, with no real though having gone into it beyond a simple theme or property designed to appeal to a less informed audience.  Think of the sort of… Continue reading Card Game Reskins Are the Shovelware Titles of the Tabletop Hobby
