Project L

Project L is a game that drew me in with it’s tetris like pieces. The game doesn’t really play like tetris at all, but it does have puzzle quality to it. The components of the game are great, I love the recessed boards and the plastic shapes. It’s very sleek. The game itself is pretty…

A Christmas Story: A Major Card Game

I should start by saying I’m a sucker for nostalgia. I will give a lot of credit to Funko for finding ways to use that love to their advantage. I think it’s a pretty genius idea to come out with these card games. There are a few others and I’ve posted previously about Hocus Pocus….

Merry Dissmas – The Family Holiday Party Game

The holidays are almost here and I am always looking for a game to bring out at the family dinners. When you get the family together there are a lot of different personalities and a game that takes a minute to explain usually goes over pretty well. There isn’t actually a lot to say about…
