Stuff and Nonsense from Cheapass Games has the players pulling up a chair in London’s Adventurer’s Club to extoll the tales of their latest daring treks to foreign lands, and the no doubt heroic and interesting things that they did along the way. The only thing is, the adventures never really happened. In reality the players are running around all over London, hitting up various stores and locations to find facts and anecdotes, knick knacks and photographs that they can use as “proof” of their wild foreign antics.
The only problem is, they got the idea from Professor Elemental, and he’s not super happy about them honing in on his territory.
Sentinels of the Multiverse is a super hero themed cooperative card game from the company Greater than Games. Each player takes control of their very own super hero, each represented by their own custom deck of cards that contain their various equipment, powers, and skills, and must come together as a team to take down a powerful super villain with his or her own deck of minions and retributions. And if that wasn’t enough for the heroes to deal with, these battles each take place in a variety of environments spanning from the undersea ruins of Atlantis to the corrupted back alleys of Rook City, and even to the harsh wastelands of Earth’s far distant future, each with their own dangers for both sides of the conflict. Are you hearing the Danny Elfman Batman Overture in your head right now and wishing you had a cape, then keep reading for more details.
All manner of games. Board games, mostly, and card games. The whole range of table top entertainment experiences. But also video games, from time to time. And, because it’s the sort of thing that fascinates me, also things like alternate rules for games, variations, and game accessories. I’m a big fan of taking an existing game and finding ways to really plumb its depths for more enjoyment by providing alternate ways to play, or upgrading the playing pieces. I’m also a big fan of organization and storage, so I’ll be talking about that a bit, too.
So stay tuned here for reviews, how-to’s, and discussions about all things games and game related. Let’s have some fun, and talk about games.
