Josh Look (He/Him)
Staff Podcaster

One night during the summer of 1997, Josh Look's cool uncle who owned a comic shop taught him how to play Magic the Gathering. The game set off his imagination in a way that he could not sleep that night, and he's been fascinated by games ever since. He spent many afternoons during his high school years skipping homework to play Dungeons & Dragons and paint Warhammer minatures, going on to discover hobby board games in his early 20s. He's been a writer for Fortress Ameritrash and is the creator and co-host of the geek culture podcast, The Wolfman's Lounge. He enjoys games that encourage a heavy amount of table talk and those that explore their themes beyond just their settings.

If you're a hobby gamer, you can break down mass market games. Stick with me here, this isn't going in a "These Games of Ours" direction. The vast majority of it is stuff a hobby gamer isn't going to give two craps about. Maybe stuff you'd play with your kids, but anything "adult" would mean dumb party games and bad liscensed games to make a quick buck. Then there are those rare games like Heroscape or Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Star Wars Epic Duels that are totally accesible for the...

Glamazons vs The Curse of the Chainmail Bikini Review

Board Game Reviews JL Josh Look Updated January 28, 2015 871   0
Disclaimer - Matt Loter, the designer of Glamazons vs The Curse of the Chainmail Bikini (referred to as "Glamazons" from here on out) is one of my closest friends. That being said, I'm the first to let him know when he's done something I disapprove of, usually accompanied with what some would call "colorful" language. Oh, such wonderfully foul, colorful language. In short, despite our relationship, it's well within my nature to be brutally honest, and I think you're stupid if you even had the slightest notion of me being biased.  Suck it.
