Leslie Nielsen–1926 to 2010

Leslie Nielsen passed away today at the age of 84 due to complications from pneumonia. Since everyone else is on the Internet talking about his “Naked Gun” movies, I thought I would take a moment to remember his work in Forbidden Planet.

First Look: Pastiche the Board Game from Gryphon Games

First Look: Pastiche the Board Game from Gryphon Games

Gryphon Games has a new board game in the pipeline, “Pastiche.”  The game releases in the next few months and Gryphon Games  kindly forwarded the box art and rules to me for an early look. “Pastiche” is an art-themed set collection board game using the premise that each player gathers specific color palette cards and […]

Next month is the Game Manufacturers Association trade show, covering all aspects of gaming from card and board games to role-playing games and game printing.

Your Highness Movie Trailer–Pineapple Express Meets Lord of the Rings

Cheech and Chong doing Tolkien.  The mere thought of it is enough to melt my poor brain, but after watching the trailer for “Your Highness,” it apparently has come to pass.  Take one standard fantasy trope (rescue the princess) and add lots of sex, drugs and low humor and you are at “Your Highness.” I […]

Dungeons and Dragons Essentially Covered – Adding the Egg

Welcome Enworlders! While you are here, take a look at the great contest we are running! First prize is a free copy of the Eoris role-playing game! And now I return with part 2 of my experience with D&D Essentials. Let’s be honest, 4.0 has its flaws.  I can concede that point (I admitted to […]

Defenders of the Realm, Fzzzt! and a Secret Prototype from Eagle Games Session Report

“Defenders of the Realm” popped on my radar back at the GAMA Trade Show in March, but they only had an early prototype with simple tokens instead of the finished miniatures. At long last, I got in a game at Game Depot this weekend. Additionally, I also got a quick game of “Fzzzt!” and a […]
