Kickstarter 101 – Picking a Campaign

There are tons of Kickstarter projects out there, some of them look great, some of them are great, and others, they don’t look great but they might be good. I think that one hard part of Kickstarter is that overwhelming amount of content out there…

TableTopTakes: Age of War

TableTopTakes: Age of War

Fairly often the games that I review are these big epic games, like Gloomhaven, Sword & Sorcery, and more, but I do enjoy, fairly often, playing small games as well. And when it comes to games being small, Age of War fits the bill as…

Dungeons and Dragons: Eberron
