Galaxy Defenders Custom Inserts Project

I love big, sprawling adventure games! Galaxy Defenders is just that! To top it off, it has this sci-fi pulp/cult feel to it, which makes it both serious and funny at the same time. Also in this game, your victories, defeats and decisions matter and are carried over the span of scenarios in campaign mode.… Continue reading Galaxy Defenders Custom Inserts Project

The X-Files Boardgame Thoughts and Custom DIY Inserts

This is one of those games we’ve hesitated purchasing. Looking into it some more changed our minds. We had a blast playing this one!  Kevin Wilson and IDW Games did a great job on this one. Basically 1 (preferably choosing 2 agents) to 4 players act acting as agents, which then goes up against a player that… Continue reading The X-Files Boardgame Thoughts and Custom DIY Inserts

Journey to the 51st State!

Had a blast with Portal Games’ 51st State. As most of their games, it is tight, strategic, thematic, while also coupled with a bit of luck since all players draw from the same deck. Our painted Chaos cultists from Warhammer 40K were used to replace the meeple for workers.  They fit nicely with the game… Continue reading Journey to the 51st State!

Dark Age – Feudal Lords Collectible Card Game

So yeah, we just stumbled upon a treasure trove. 😀 Dark Age lives on today, but in a miniatures game format. I’ve already been a fan of Gerald Brom’s artworks from Magic:The Gathering book and card artworks, but I’ve totally missed this collectible card game back in the day. Twenty-one years later… Happy weekend! Coffee time!… Continue reading Dark Age – Feudal Lords Collectible Card Game

Fantasy Flight Games’ Packaging Revision

Me and my wife have been longtime fans of Fantasy Flight Games’ (FFG) products with their excellent quality and aesthetic impression they project when displayed on shelves, but it seems that in recent years, their products have suffered some dip in quality with regards to packaging. The expansions packs of Living Card Games (LCG) were packaged into blister packs instead of… Continue reading Fantasy Flight Games’ Packaging Revision

Recruiting for the Human Sphere with some Calvados (Apple Brandy)

I’m pleased at how much this game has evolved in such a short time. Beautiful range of miniatures and the women really look like women! It has been a while that I wanted to have Sisters of Battle from the 40K range, but they never updated their sculpts. Corvus Belli seems to be in a good direction and competitive… Continue reading Recruiting for the Human Sphere with some Calvados (Apple Brandy)

Unplugged Gaming Corner

Besides the books and video games corner, this is our favorite spot in our place.  Seeing those boxes always puts a smile on our faces, relieves the stress of the day, and you know, keeps our sanity  intact. :p As one my favorites artists would say, “surround yourself with what makes you happy.” That’s besides… Continue reading Unplugged Gaming Corner
