Adventure Time Card Wars: ...

Hey there, neglected blog! A lot has happened since we last spoke. I have recently gone though the process of packing up all of my board games, moving them, and unpacking. It’s made me appreciate that I own quite a few games, and I wanted to spend some more time with them. So a board game a week it is! First up: Adventure Time Card Wars! Do you remember this episode of Adventure Time? Finn and Jake...

On Gaming and Motherhood

I’m quite excited to be nearly 19 weeks pregnant right now. The husband and I have always wanted a big family and we’re just over 20 weeks from getting to add another member to our little adventuring party. As I’ve spent 14 of the last 18 weeks hovering above a puke bowl, I’ve been reflecting on the many ways that being a mother changes the way I game. Since having Archer nearly 3...

I started gaming in high school, not long before I met my the man who would become my husband (his name is Kennon and he’s pretty awesome). My interest in gaming, really, is how we got together. A mutual friend who went to college with him invited me...

Game Turducken: Launching ...

This November, I started playing Magic The Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers on Steam. If you follow me on twitter, you may remember that I referred to this as #eggquest. I had a fun time playing it, and one reason for that was DOTP’s cutscenes including lore from the Magic universe. In one of them, the game informs you that Ravnica is a  world covered in city. I remarked on how cool that...

Merry Christmas from Chara...

Hello, our lovely readers. Today, we’re excited to give you a Christmas present! A Fiasco playset written by Lyndsay and myself. It’s called And To All A Good Night and it’s inspired by our Christmases growing up in small, rural towns, as well as some of our favorite holiday movies. It was a lot of fun to write and, I hope, you’ll have a lot of fun reading it (and playing it!). You...
