Hell Comes to Frogtown (1988)
Movies and Television ES Egg Shen Updated May 21, 2017 6134   0
They say that you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. Well, can you judge it based on it’s name? If so I’m sure Hell Comes to Frogtown is something worthy of my time. If the insanely dumb title doesn’t sucker you in, then allow me to explain why this is piece of cinematic trash is absolutely worth a watch.
The Perfect Campaign
Analysis ES Egg Shen Updated March 01, 2017 7073   0
Ever since the glory days of HeroQuest I’ve always been interested in boardgames that can be played out as a campaign.  That is, you play as the same character over the course of several games, getting new gear/powers to help you overcome evil.  The truth is that even back in the time before work, responsibilities, and internet cat videos I RARELY managed to successfully finish a campaign.  
Up Your Game ES Egg Shen Updated February 19, 2017 7519   0
So I’ve taken a cursory glance at all of the announced titles that are expected to come out in 2017 and whipped up a Top Ten.  These are the games that make me lose sleep at night because I’m obsessing about them like some love struck teenager.  That gentle cooing and deep sighing you hear is me looking lovingly at a Polaroid of the game in the number one spot.  You creeped out?  Wanna turn back?  Too late, OFF WE GO!
I'm Not Dead
Rants & Raves ES Egg Shen Updated February 06, 2017 5054   0
I'm done writing boardgame reviews.  I know people like hearing about the latest games, but it was never really what I set out to achieve here at the Fort.  My initial vision was to write articles about various different boardgaming topics...and occasionally review something random/obscure that wasn't getting proper exposure.  So I'd like to get back to that, and this article is my first step towards that original direction.  Basically, I'm going to go over where I'm at as a person roughly 12 years into this hobby.

One of my favorite things to do is have friends over for an evening of socializing.  Whether it’s for a social gathering with copious amounts booze, or a low key game night, I love to play host and let people have a good time.  My specialty is hosting horror movie nights.  Here are my top ten tips for pulling off a successful movie night:

F:AT Snack Attack 3 - Ecto Cooler Review!
Gamer Culture ES Egg Shen Updated September 21, 2016 3727   0
Welcome back to a very special installment of the F:AT Snack Attack.  In previous articles we’ve looked at Kettle Corn and the world’s tastiest corn taquito chip.  This time I’m going to be covering something very near and dear to my heart.  Something that I’m sure many of you are all familiar with.  Yup, it’s the tasty green concoction which looks like Re-animator serum.  It’s Hi C’s Ecto Cooler!  
Zombicide: Black Plague Review
Board Game Reviews ES Egg Shen Updated January 30, 2019 7338   0
Like any horror franchise worth its salt, Zombicide is back with another installment. Just like most horror sequels this one has a twist!  Wizards and Warriors are the new flavor du jour.  Chainsaws have become broadswords and uzis are now crossbows.  So besides a stylistic face-lift does this new version improve upon the game in any meaningful way?
The Bloody Inn Review
Board Game Reviews ES Egg Shen Updated January 30, 2019 5538   0
Sometimes I let my inner Brett Michaels get the best of me.  When it comes to boardgame themes and settings I need a chance just to get away.  I gotta get a break from the same old, same old.  So in my never ending quest, looking for nothing but a good time, I tend to search every nook and cranny for weird games.  Make no mistake, The Bloody Inn is WEIRD.
