Well, I've stumbled across something I had forgotten about that discusses an element of board games that many thematic games try to nail down, but often don't succeed without compromising the actual game. Narration. From a response I made in my Gloom of Kilforth review I made on boardgamegeek a long while back. Something I … Continue reading Narration in Board Games
I've dabbled in making board games before. Roughly 3 times or more. 2 of those times were miserable failures. 3rd time was the charm, but not good enough by my standards. Mainly because I want to make something better than a solo playable board game that's a Resident Evil rip-off (I wasn't happy with the … Continue reading Ideas on creating a board game.
I may have missed a detail or two when going through the whole Entertainment Industry Nostalgia series. I may make little corrections here and there when I can. But there's something I have to mention before moving on to the 1992 year. The television shows that premiered prior to the 90s, but still carried over … Continue reading Shows and Board Games to be aware of for the early 1990s
This is an older post of mine that I previously made on BoardGameGeek. Reposting it here on the off-chance my account gets deleted. It could happen. Is it equitable to state that a game would be nothing without the players, just as a player would be nothing without the games? Maybe, in a sense. And … Continue reading The value of the game and the player
When one thinks of divine right, they may think of the excuse kings and monarchs made for their authority and power. That they have been chosen by God to have these rights as a monarch to rule as they wish. Anyone who questions them questions the will of God. Anyone who defies them defies God … Continue reading The Divine Right of Art

The 20th Anniversary week of The Price Is Right is celebrated. US and USSR (hah!) officially recognizes independence of Estonia, Latvia & Lithuania. Nelson Mandela chosen as president of African National Congress. Mike Tyson indicted for rape of Desiree … Continue reading Entertainment Industry Nostalgia: September 1991
Rated: 3.5 / 5 I used to own this other board game titled King of Tokyo, a game that abstracted kaiju fights by having monsters that were rip-offs of Godzilla and King Kong, the energizer bunny, among others (some of which, to their credit, were original). We all knew we were to imagine that these … Continue reading Godzilla: Tokyo Clash (2020) board game review
So I originally had this as a blog post on boardgamegeek.com. I suspected it would be too hot for it to handle. Sure enough, before the day was over: "Your blog has been deleted due to multiple severe violations of site rules, including defending sexism and objectification, dismissiveness to concerns about inclusiveness, personal attacks, and … Continue reading What is censorship in the face of sensitivity?
So a while back I mentioned I was working on a couple projects, that I would eventually get around to making a post on one of them. Well, it's time. Rating: 5 / 5 It is meant to be a complete fantasy world so full of variation that the players have real choices to make, … Continue reading Magic Realm (1979) epic review
Rated: 5 / 5 I backed this game on kickstarter, and I believe I can say this could turn out to be my favorite kickstarter backed game next to The Lord of the Ice Garden (which also originates from Poland, along with the novel series which that game is based off of, which currently doesn't … Continue reading Lords of Hellas review
