Upcoming: Spacestation Pheta, Revived!

First of all, let me apologize for the long hiatus. Some things have been happening. Dawn moved, and I had the craziest semester ever. However, I’m trying to get things up and rolling again, so watch for new posts and some actual twitter action again! Now, onto the good stuff. A while back, Dawn told […]

Extra Life – More Than Halfway, We Got This!

Or at least we are so sleep-deprived that it really doesn’t much matter. So, someone brought this game called Qwitch. It has letters A-H and numbers 1-8 together on the cards but random, so cards can be A1 or D5 or H3 and so on. Then, there are plus, minus, and equal signs and people […]

Timewaster: Mystery Express

When we sat down to play today’s Timewaster game, it was described to me as “clue on a train,” and honestly, that’s almost exactly what it is. There are a few major differences, which can either add to or take away from gameplay, but overall it was a fun game and I did better than […]

Timewaster: The Sims 3

Today’s Timewaster is from a franchise I’ve been playing for as long as I can remember. Sometimes, I sit down to write these posts and wonder how games like this one slipped through past posts. It’s by no means a new game, but let me tell you, I love playing The Sims.

Timewaster: Microscope

Contrary to what it initially sounds like, Microscope is not a science game. What it is, however, is completely different from anything else I’ve ever played or even really experienced. It’s actually hard to sum up in a simple description, but I’ll try. Microscope is a pencil and paper game of world-building and creative role-playing. […]

Timewaster: Agricola

I’m not sure how this game has slipped through and failed to make it onto our Timewasters list so far. I first played Agricola at the¬†inaugural¬†Pax East, and immediately bought the game upon my return home – and I still love it.

Timewaster Tuesday: Ascension

Have you ever played a new game and known before the game was over that you were going to have to own it someday? I felt that way the first time I learned Ascension. Fortunately, Dawn bought it for me for Christmas so I can now share the joy with all of you! Basic Gameplay […]
