Pitchstorm

Who doesn’t love a good movie? Pitchstorm is all about creating and pitching your own great film to an executive who might have their own ideas for the project. I love this type of party game, it’s easy enough to be playing in minutes and the executive notes add a good twist. Pitchstorm is a…

Kabuto Sumo

Kabuto Sumo is a game I have been searching for and finally found at a game store while on vacation. It did not disappoint. I love arcades and especially love coin pusher games. They are so satisfying so the idea that I could have that same feeling at home was really appealing. This game is…

Hocus Pocus Tricks and Wits

Hocus Pocus Tricks and Wits is a Funko Card game. I have a few of these games and will write about more over Christmas. These games are small, low priced and usually themed on movies. This one is obviously based on the movie Hocus Pocus. To be honest, these aren’t really my go to games….

Chainmaille: Byzantine Chain and Simple Pendant

I’m still fairly inexperienced when it comes to chainmaille. Byzantine has sort of become my go to chain. I love how simple it is when you get the hang of it and it’s easy enough to work on while you are watching TV. Plus it looks good, there’s something very elegant about this chain. It…

Pandemic

UNO

This post is about another classic, UNO. I think at some point in everyone’s life they’ve come across UNO. This plays a lot like a regular card game, it’s easy to take anywhere and the rules are straight forward. When I think of UNO, I think of cottages or camping, somewhere you want to play…
