Having a howling good time talking Billionaire Banshee with Razlo

Billionaire Banshee happens to be one of those games and, luckily enough for Steven “Razlo” Bailey, 458 people pitched in $21,878 to make it happen. With Apples more »

Hand of Fate Preview: A RPG and cards combo

I love card games. From the simplest ones, like Go Fish, to Sequence, to collector cards like Yu-Gi-Oh!, I have always enjoyed them. They’re great to play with other people, or if you’re a loner you can always play good, ol’ reliable Solitaire. Well, Defiant Development’s new game, Hand of Fate, takes a love of more »

Fan service without pleasure

There have been few reviews of Monster Monpiece going around. It may be because its a very niche card/strategy game that was likely passed off in favor of larger games, but more likely it is the fact that there are aspects of the game that are problematic to say the least.  Go to the comments more »

Magic 2015: Duels of the Planeswalkers Preview: Bigger and Better

While it is the fate of many games to be played for a while and then forgotten, Magic: The Gathering (MTG) is no such game. The ultimate, genre-spawning, collectible card game, there are millions of players that have been faithfully playing (and buying cards!) for years. The electronic version of the card game, Duels of the Planeswalkers (Duels) gets an update every year, and has come a long way from early versions of the game. I recently had the pleasure of a hands-on demo with Wizards of the Coast reps, eager to show off the new features.

$5 (or $10) Columbia Games contest says you know hockey

When it comes to contests, I’m not a big fan. I lose. Alot. When it comes to sports-related contests, well, it’s hopeless, and I’m sure I’m not the only gaming geek that knows the feeling. Columbia Games seems to feel my pain, and has a contest that at least gives me a fighting chance even though I don’t know much about hockey. Just for entering, they give $5 credit to their cool games, and if I guess (and it’s sports related, so it’s going to be a guess) right, I get $10 credit.

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Review: Build a Deck and Find your Path

The Pathfinder Adventure Card Game (PACG) is Paizo’s latest attempt to cash in on the card game craze. The initial game is based around their Rise of the Rune Lords Adventure Path–an extremely well-written set of adventures for their Pathfinder role playing game (RPG). Games based off other games tend to just be shadows of the original, and PACG is no exception. That said, it’s a darn good shadow, with some fun to offer fans of Pathfinder, especially those that have played Rise of the Rune Lords.
