Little Geek’s Reaction to Star Wars “Bomb” is Brilliant

Do you recall that moment when you found out that Darth Vader was Luke Skywalker’s father? I sure do and I remember feeling a little bit queezy and terribly, terribly excited. This was the biggest bomb dropped in my lap since I found out that Santa was my mom and dad. In truth, a larger piece of me died the day I found out who Darth Vader really was vs. Santa being mom and dad down stairs. There are just some things in this world you should not know.

Geek Organization: From Chaos to Order

Having an organized game collection room is absolutely fantastic and a tremendous stress reliever! With the help of shelves, storage boxes, trays, and the Brother P-Touch Labeler, I have been making excellent progress. There’s still a lot of work to do, but the progress so far has made a huge impact both space wise and to my geek ego. The project continues! Continue reading

Early Peek at Eruption

Eruption is a fantastic game! After multiple plays with a number of people, the game was loved by Gamer Geeks, Parent Geeks, and Child Geeks! That’s as good as it gets, people! Stratus Games has got a hit on their hands and I simply cannot wait to get this game to the table when it is finally released in all of its professionally published and produced glory!

Geek Organization: The Product Pretest Gauntlet of Pain

My game collection is officially out of control. It is time to take charge of the situation and get things organized! I will be using the Brother P-Touch labeler to clearly identify games and containers. But before I do so, I must test the durability of the product. Will the labels last or quickly fail to the onslaught of devistation? Continue reading

Game Time: Tacking the Past Family Movie Review

While football is prominent in the movie and narrative, it is not the only, or the most important, game being played. The real game is the one we play with ourselves everyday when we make choices. Do we go left or right? Pay off our car with some extra cash or take the family on a vacation? Do we chase fame and fortune or happiness and substance? What is important to us and why? Gather the family, pop some corn, and enjoy a family-friendly television movie about life, family, and football. Continue reading

Lots of Free Card Games!

We have already shared with you a compiled list of free RPGs, lovingly collected and organized by a true fan and geek. Such dedication separates the “occasional player” from the true “enthusiast”. But if RPGs are not your thing, perhaps card games are. Just so happens that another true geek enthusiast has compiled a list of free card games created by some very inventive people.

White Elephant Gift Exchange Now A Card Game? Oh, Yes!

If you have not had the opportunity to participate in a White Elephant Gift Exchange, many would consider you lucky. I have participated in many a gift exchange thanks to working for a large international corporation with employees from many different ethnic and religious backgrounds. Since the White Elephant Gift Exchange is a silly little game at its core, it stands to reason that you could improve it, which someone did. Continue reading

Lots of Free RPGs!

Taken as a whole, it is simply incredible how many creative people are bent over their keyboards and devising ways to chuck dice and get treasure using pen and paper. If we could get even half of them to focus on world peace, I doubt we’d have wars in 20 years. And while that might sound like an unobtainable goal, I think it is well in bounds to suggest that the games listed will allow me to taste the thrill of the dragon hunt once more! Continue reading
