We're Geeks. We Play Games.

I'll put something more exciting here later.

In the meantime, have a beverage and relax. It could be awhile.

What beverage would I suggest?

  • A nice sangria.
  • An old fashioned.
  • A Long Island Iced Tea.

The Hobbit: On the Doorstep

Announcing the Action-Packed Second Half of The Hobbit Saga Expansion.

I haven't had the chance to get the first half of this game, due to the fact my kids want to eat and whatnot, but it is on my list.  Regardless of my lack of ownership it's still something to get excited about.

"As a Saga Expansion, The Hobbit: On the Doorstep faithfully retraces the half-sized footsteps of Bilbo Baggins, Middle-earth’s most famous burglar. Three new scenarios invite you to relive the thrilling adventures that lead Bilbo, Thorin, and Company to the end of their amazing journey. Equipped with his magic ring, Bilbo helps the Dwarves through the perilous forests of Mirkwood, burgles treasures from under a dragon’s nose, and struggles to restore peace during the Battle of Five Armies."

Marvel HeroClix TabApp: Marvel Super Heroes Are Here!

I love technology and I love the idea of combining technology with tabletop games. This idea is briliant and I very much hope to see this in person.

"Greetings HeroClix Fans!  Since we first announced the existence of HeroClix TabApp, there’s been a great deal of speculation and questions.  ”What is HeroClix TabApp?” folk have been asking.  Well, if you were fortunate enough to attend Gen Con Indy 2012, you may have taken the opportunity to examine and play this innovative and fun offering from WizKids Games/NECA; a real-time super hero application aimed at a younger audience for the iPad (and soon for the Android platform as well!).  Utilizing HeroClix powers and abilities based upon HeroClix and physical figures to unlock content, HeroClix TabApp bridges the tabletop and digital HeroClix experience!"

Sad to say, but Lori has owned this game for quite some time now and we have never played it.  I got tired of waiting for her to figure it out and basically stole it just to have it sit there and not get played.  But hey, just cause we are slackers doesn't mean we can't get excited about an expansion right? (Get on it or give me my game back, Mister, I'm halfway through the tutorial and it's such a gorgeous game! -Lori)

" NECA/WizKids, the leader in collectible gaming, is excited to announce the upcoming release of The Mage Knight Board Game: The Lost Legion expansion— the first expansion set to the critically-acclaimed epic fantasy board game— The Mage Knight Board Game—  by renowned game designer Vlaada Chvátil (Dungeon Pets, Galaxy Truckers and other widely popular game releases)."

"Now that you’ve had a taste of the first two faction packs, you have a good idea of what to expect in future ones. More creatures, more order cards, more fun! But the recipe for designing a faction pack for Dungeon Command is not as simple as just repeating the steps we used in the game’s creation."
