I googled Ninja Jokes and it told me none could be found. Well played, ninjas, well played.

An observer would have seen nothing but a brief blur around the ship, but the Uprising Destroyer "Resistance" had gone to battle stations. Shields up, the captain then gave orders to activate the defence grid ready for firing. Everything seemed to be going fine until the Resistance fired engines to manoeuvre into position. It slid across space, spinning wildly, before coming to rest in the opposite direction.

Power Grid, designed by Friedemann Friese was published way back in 2004. It is still going strong with it's most recent expansion, Power Grid: Fabled Expansion, released in 2017. It's been called a crayon rail game without the crayons, an auction game, a train game without the trains.   Whatever you call it, do you love it or hate it? Do you still play it?

Hannibal: Rome vs Carthage provided one of the most memorable gaming sessions of my life. Since the mid game, my Carthaginian armies had dominated the board thanks to a blend of luck and skill. In the final turn, Rome's only hope was an instant victory by taking Carthage itself. He duly built a big invasion stack and in response, I drew forces back to protect Africa.

High on storytelling, but with some interesting tactical choices to make, Big Trouble in Little China is a solid co-op.

The Masquerade is about to begin. All the attendants sneak glances at the time, awaiting the arrival of Prince Prospero. As the clock strikes 8:00, the prince arrives, draped in his regal attire and everyone jostles for position, pressing close to his majesty. A witty quip and a subtle flirt bring a smile and a chuckle from the Prince. As he slowly moves away, the socialites plan how they can next meet with him, preferably alone, in hopes of currying his favor. A glance at the clock shows it is 8:30…*booming disembodied voice* Aww, hell, the...

My mom took my daughter to see The Nutcracker once as a ballet in Western Florida. I'm glad I got out of that as I had seen it in Grade 3 when I used to live in Winnipeg. I can still remember how bored I was, not having yet learned that you can just sleep through things if you want to. So I thought that if I proactively take Emily to see this movie, I might be able to dodge having to see the ballet if it rolls into town again. In the end, I think...

This Summer I moved for the first time in 22 years.  That's a long time, especially when the house you're moving from has ample storage.  I don't recommend houses with ample storage, as it's likely you'll use it, and that's not doing you any favors.  This is particularly true when your hobby requires big clunky boxes of different sizes to be kept over extended periods of time.

Talisman the Magical Quest Game, desgined by Bob Harris was published in 1983 and has been a much loved and a much loathed game ever since. I once asked Mr. Harris if he had a choice, would he rather be remembered as "Robert J. Harris, the author," or "Bob Harris the designer of Talisman?" He answered that although he didn't expect to be remembered at all, that one of his great pleasures was recieving letters from children all over the world about the fun and happiness that Talisman a had given them. ...
