Evolution: Flight Game Expansion Review

Mankind has observed birds since they first looked in the sky. From that moment, the hearts of man have been filled with rapture and longing, for birds encapsulate a kind of freedom that can never be ours. But the sky and those things that fly in it are not immune to the same problems as earthbound creatures. Claws and teeth are equal to talons and beak. Hunting grounds exist both underfoot and above our heads. Continue reading

Legends and Lies: Mysterious Locations Game Expansion Review

Many believe there are locations on our planet that are unique. Some are the source of spiritual and supernatural springs that individuals can tap into. Other locations are doorways to different dimensions and to places best left unspoken. These strange places are found in some of the most remote locations of the world and in the backyards of modern-day suburbia. For those who search for the truth and believe that there is more to our reality than what we can simply see, these locations are frequently visited. Continue reading

The crowds wanted more and the owners of the arena obliged. From the far reaches of the Empire, new warriors have arrived, bringing with them exotic weapons of death, fantastic animal combatants, and new heroes to cheer for. Once again, the crowd was content.

Legacy: Forbidden Machines Game Expansion Review

Time travel comes at a cost. While moving back and forth, an energy known as “vesper” seeps through the Timeline, corroding it. It travels with the Antiquitects as they go about ensuring Time remains balanced, but it’s through their actions that Time is now unraveling.

Continue reading

Legends and Lies: The Skeptic Game Expansion Review

When so-called “experts” present something as fact, most people blindly believe what they are told. But not you. You have always been skeptical of anyone who tells you to believe anything with little evidence to back up their claims. Some say that being too big a skeptic could lead to unhealthy suspicion and paranoia, but that’s crazy talk. It’s always better to be on guard. You’ll be damned if the giant alien hedgehogs from Beta Alpha Prime take over the world on your watch! Continue reading

Mage Wars: Forged in Fire Game Expansion Review

Far beyond the forests and plains lies the great mountains. Their peaks reach ever-upward and disappear into the heavens. Below them lies the great Kingdom of the Dwarves who have toiled for centuries to perfect the art of metallurgy. Their craft and artistry is legend and their skill is unmatched. They have even mastered the ability to forge the very fabric of magic with fire and hammer. This has drawn the eye of the Lord of Fire who covets all things born of flame. The Lord of Fire has sent his most powerful warlock to take from the dwarves their secrets and skills, but such a thing is not easily done. Continue reading

Council of Verona: The Poison Expansion Game Review

Long have the heads of family yelled and threatened each other over the council table. All for not. The bitter rivalry between the Capulets and Montagues runs too deep to be easily fixed by words. Diplomacy has failed and poison is being used to permanently silence the opposition. Exile, it would seem, is now desirable since the alternative is an early grave. Continue reading

Magic is dangerous in the hands of any who take it to extremes. The Druid and the Necromancer are two such students who have taken their magical devotion to zealot like levels.

Two opposing mages with two opposing powers that are destined to meet and destroy each other. Continue reading

Tsuro of the Seas: Veterans of the Seas Game Expansion Review

Mankind knows that certain acts are dangerous, but does them anyway. Jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, for example, with only a bit of cord and cloth stopping you from hitting the ground hard enough to go “splat”. That doesn’t sound like a good idea to me. I go through life doing all I can to AVOID being hurt or putting anyone around me in danger. And yet, I am a huge risk taker when it comes to games. One could easily say I do this because I really don’t have anything to lose. Which is true, but I wonder if my giddy little thrill of “pushing the envelope” is the same as a skydiver’s when they jump from a plane? Nah. Mine is a much bigger rush. This expansion adds more danger and risk at sea to an already risky game. Continue reading

The dolphin saved you this time, but it’s best not to rely on luck or tempt fate. SWIM! Continue reading
