The Gods have fallen. They now live among us, stripped of their power and made to humble themselves as they coexist with us mortals.

Now humanity is plagued by the undead and all seems lost. But not yet. The Gods may have fallen, but they aren’t down for the count! 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. We take small problems and create large solutions. The real trick is to solve big problems with simple solutions. Can it be done? This game aims to prove that it can. Continue reading

Shootout! Game Review

In the great open wilderness and small towns found in the West, law and order is often at the end of a gun barrel. Those who have power keep it jealously, but no man is immune to a sudden and rather lethal dose of lead poisoning delivered by a bullet. In this game, you will be challenged. Win and you survive another day. Fail and you’ll end up being just one more coffin put in the ground. Continue reading

Now Boarding Game Review (prepublished version)

Oriville Wright once said, “No flying machine will ever fly from New York to Paris.” I wonder how he would react to today’s busy airline industry.

In this game, you’ll be spending your time attempting to please the passengers while still trying to keep your plane up in the air! Continue reading

Superbeings Jumbo Card Game Review (prepublished version)

There is no such thing as “natural evolution” in the future. Science can now grow entirely new species, augment bodies with powerful new abilities, and have found a way to make robots sentient. War and destruction is everywhere, but a few fight a battle on a different level, championing their various factions in duels. The loser is put in the ground. The winner is that much closer to controlling the universe. Continue reading
