Herbaceous Game Review

Eighteenth century poet, Minnie Aumonier, wrote “When the world wearies and society fails to satisfy, there is always the garden.” Many find solace when they bend a knee and dig their hands in cool earth, planting seeds and growing abundance. But gardening can be intimidating and requires a great deal of patience. In this game, players will exercise their green thumb and plant a herb garden, one of the best and easiest ways to get into the gardening habit. But don’t rush it. Continue reading

Cookie Box Game Review

American pastry chef, television celebrity and cookbook author, Johnny Luzzini, said “Baking is about multi-tasking. If you are organized and prepared, that’s half the battle.” Cooking is as much an art form as it is a science, and by “art form”, I mean juggling. In this game, players will be challenged to keep a cool head, focused attention, and be as fast as possible doing both. Continue reading

Commies! Game Review (prepublished version)

American publisher, philanthropist, and diplomat, Walter Annenberg, said “The greatest power is not money power, but political power.” In this game, power is given to you, but you must share it.

You must work with others to obtain your goals, while at the same time helping others obtain theirs, to a point… Continue reading

Safety in numbers in all that. The problem is, the more people you have, the less treasure you personally get. Thankfully, there is an easy – if not somewhat underhanded – way to fix this issue. Continue reading

Sarah’s Singularity Game Review (prepublished version)

To travel through time is to risk creating countless paradoxes. A few paradoxes here and there isn’t a bad thing. A paradox to the universe is like a painting on a blank wall. It ties everything together. But many paradoxes? That’s where…or better put “when”… time starts to fall apart. Meet Sarah, a time traveler who just created the mother all paradoxes, repeatedly. Good thing there are an infinite number of Sarahs to fix it. Continue reading

PeltaPeeps Game Review

American Protestant clergyman and academic leader, Douglas Horton, said “The art of simplicity is a puzzle of complexity.” We, as a species, tend to over engineer things.
