Unpacking the new Star Wars Beginner’s Role Playing Game box

December 20, 2012 by

I received the new Star Wars Edge of the Empire Beginner’s game in the mail yesterday, and thought I’d share with you the contents of the box. I can’t speak yet to the actual playing experience, that won’t happen for another week or so, but I can comment on the contents of the game.  It’s worth noting that I […]

Playing Dungeon! With My Kid

November 5, 2012 by

This weekend I had the opportunity to play Dungeon! with my daughter (7).  We had a great time, and the rules were easy enough for her to quickly pick up and play.  The game is simple, but very fun, and I definitely recommend it for parents looking for a D&D-ish game to play with their […]

Last weekend our Friday night DM surprised us with a fantastic pair of maps made from Terraclips and D&D tiles for our campaign finale. I had never heard or seen these strange tile-and-clip things, so I asked him about it. I was also surprised by how sturdy the structure was – he picked it up […]

I’ll start this review by telling you that I’ve never been a huge Forgotten Realms guy, although I love the older Forgotten Realms products.  I’ve owned the boxed sets, source books and a few novels from the 2e era of the Realms.  I even own the 3e forgotten Realms book, even though I played very […]

I haven’t reviewed stuff in a while, and recently I was offered the chance to review some stuff from Open Design and Engine Publishers so I wanted to share my thoughts with you.  As a disclaimer, these PDF’s were offered to me in exchange for a review.  Also, upfront I’ll tell you that I enjoyed […]
