Runebound 3rd edition

Game Information

Game Name
Runebound is on it's 3rd Edition. I've never played the first edition, but have been told that it was a hot mess. Some people would argue that Runebound 2nd Edition was also a hot mess, while for others it is a much loved favorite adventure game. And then there is Runebound 3rd Edition which one of reviews declared was "sheer brilliance." No one had much to say in response to that. Literally, the Runebound Third Edition Review has been read over two thousand times, without a single comment. Therefore I was rather surprised when a passionate...

Game Name
Dominion, winner of the 'Spiel des Jahres in 2009, is the game that launched a thousand ... other games sort of just like it, but different. Ken B. declared that Dominion was "Good shit!" However, other members of our site soon declared it boring. Before too long our reviewers where telling us that one of the many deck builders that quickly followed, such as Ascension and Artic Scavengers, were better than Dominion. So what do you think? Do you still play Dominion? Do you play other deck builders?...

Game Information

Ten years ago Descent: Journeys in the Dark was THE dungeon crawl. "Odds are you've heard of it as it slammed itself onto many tables as a massive box full of plastic bits and tiles, came with a tweaked version of the Doom dice system and was almost a really nice minis system. ...except that the scenarios REALLY, REALLY sucked...You know, Descent really pretty much sucks." - Frank Branham Fantasy Flight Games rebooted the game...

Last Night on Earth 10th Anniversary Edition

Game Information

I came across the Last Night on Earth 10 Year Anniversary Edition in my FLGS last night, and realized that Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game and this website are almost exactly the same age. It received four positive reviews, several professions of love in the blogs, and one member even posted his own home brew expansion. Michael Barnes was the only outlier declaring "Last Night on Earth Fails to Deliver Zombie Vs. Shark Action." However, even he went on to say "it's a pretty darn good game and probably...

I hosted our game group's Saturday game day for the first time since the fire. Francie Pants finally kicked me in the tush and made it happen. This kick also forced us to deal with finally getting the big-ass table up to the game room. Fortunately Joey Joe Joe the drummer stopped by Wednesday as Engineer Al and I were puzzling over how to get this table up two flights of switch-back stairs, and declared that that it would be a piece of cake compared to hauling around 90 inch TVs, which is something he does on the regular...
Emerging From the Wreckage: Building a Board Gaming Room
Staff Blogs U ubarose Updated January 07, 2019 7219   0
A couple of F:ATies have emailed and PMed me requesting an update on my house burning up situation and our rebuilding efforts. These F:ATies also seemed to believe that other people might be interested as well. I had hoped that by this time I would have been able to announce that we were back in our home, and post some feel good "before" and "after" photos. Sadly that is not the case. Our current estimate is that our house will not be suitable for human occupancy until sometime in January, and even then, the rebuilding will not be complete....
