Frantic Game Review

American singer, songwriter, and musician, Mary Chapin Carpenter, said “It’s a pretty frantic world that we live in.” Indeed it is. It takes energy to slow down and smell the roses that are primarily blurs out of the our peripheral vision. But being frantic is not always bad. It’s a rush to propel yourself forward and meet your goals ahead of schedule. In this game, the cards you play will be fast and furious. Mostly furious.

Marshmallow Fight! Game Review

The primary ingredient of the modern-day marshmallow comes from the plant Althaea officinalis, which grows – yes you guessed it – near and around marshes. The ancient Egyptians used the mallow from the plant to cure scratchy throats and to make candies as offerings to their gods. Today we mostly roast them.

Cops and Robbers Game Review

Be it cops and robbers, dogs and cats, or even Decepticon and Autobots, opposites not only tend to attract, but also repel. In this game, one player will take on the role of the police force protecting a small town. The other player will take on the criminal element who is on the look out to steal some loot. It’s a game of cat and mouse (oh, there’s another) with lots of cash and jail time up for grabs.

Digging for gold continues to be a full-time profession for some who wake up everyday believing they are going to strike it rich. There is “gold in dem dar hills” to be sure, but where to dig? A team of gold hunters will shovel a lot of dirt before they find anything of value, let alone gold. Still, the work and risk is worth it because when they find what they are looking for, all their money troubles disappear forever.

Sweet Spot Game Review (prepublished version)

Professional tennis player, Billie Jean King, said “Tennis is a perfect combination of violent action taking place in an atmosphere of total tranquillity.” A player must be fast on their feet, think quickly, but also be tactical and do more than just react to the ball. While observers might only see a volley, the two players are actually in a struggle to dominate and crush their opponent.

Incantris Game Review (prepublished version)

They say there is nothing magic cannot do. This might be true, but magic does have its limitations. Magic is only as powerful as the one who wields it. There are those who walk this world who know power, but they are not yet truly powerful. This is about to change…
