Extra Life 2014: 14 Hours In! We can do it!0

Whew – I think I’m getting a second wind. That’s good, because I’ll probably need a third, fourth, or fifth to get to the end of this. However, we have had some serious fun. We played Evolution by Northstar Games, which is an awesome Biology game that I played at PAX East last year.   […]

So, we’ve made it past the 1/4 mark and it’s now 4:30 AM. Things are getting a little strange. The crew playing HALO Risk just spent 15 minutes looking up the team play rules to determine who won the game. My little group of cooperative gamers lost two games of Forbidden Island and two games […]
