Sometimes it’s not what you know, but who you know.  This morning, when Tomb hit the table in front of me for perhaps the fifth time, I had an ace in the hole that virtually none of the rest of you will have – Sippi Steve.
Letters from Sag -- Aquädukt at the May Getaway

May Getaway days don’t exactly leap out of the gate at 6am. Part of our play space is one of the bedrooms this year (we’re rarely in the same house more than once or twice and this is a new venue this year), so more than a few players are up past midnight. I turned off the light around 1am and was back in the gaming room with my packet of Pop-Tarts by 8. The early people often kick off the day with lighter fare and this morning was no exception. Aquädukt is a game...

Greeting ladies and gents, this is the first report from the 2019 May Getaway to Dewey Beach.  Each year 15 buddies and I rent a beach house in the off-season and spend three days and four nights playing games, focusing on the big games.  For today’s installment I’ll review the first of three games I got in on day one, with a brief review of how it played out in our particular session.

Angry male nerds are a blight upon the earth. Almost every dreadful cultural phenomenon of the past decade, from internet harassment, to social media bubbles, all the way up to cases of mass murder has been propelled by bitter, socially awkward young men. These are potentially people in our social spaces, and it's essential we help tackle it. So when I see things like this essay on toxic masculinity in gaming, I read it, looking for insight.

Welcome to the Crank File. Whenever I don't have a game review to share I'll take a topic out of the Crank File and craft it into an article for your enjoyment. Sometimes these articles will actually serve a purpose and go hand in hand with an upcoming review. That will be the case with my inaugural edition. Boardgames come in all shapes, sizes, and flavors. You've got fantasy games, stock market games, sci-fi games, Lovecraft games, games named after medieval city games, zombie chow mein, princess fra diavolo, superhero jambalaya, Star Wars a...

I’ve been coming to this website for many years now. I’ve decided that instead of constantly suckling off of the F: AT knowledge teat, like a gluttonous piglet, I’m going to give back.  What you don’t want my opinions and observations?  Well too bad because I’m going to give them anyways.  Hey you in front, hands down please; we will be doing a Q&A afterwards.

Once you have been in the hobby five years, you begin to look at your game shelf and say, “I have too many games.” This doesn’t actually mean you’re going to get rid of any of them or that you will stop buying new ones. Mostly it’s just an acknowledgement that, hey, space is getting a little tight, and that you’ve spent a considerable amount of money on all the games you have.
