Faux-Cabulary Review

fauxcabularystuff

Um… What? Huh? Where am I? I had a dream where I was trying to fit six years of my life in a small car and I ran a blog where I reviewed board games and– And– Oh Lord. It’s true. I’m a blogger! I’m a blogger who is moving! Ugh, my head is throbbing, the room is spinning, and what is this game?! Where did it come from?!  What the heck is Faux-Cabulary?! Continue reading

You caught us in a bit of a mess. You see, Skip-A-Turn is ran by two Graduate students, and we’re in a bit of a pickle. I’m trying to get my degree done with out going insane, Buckle is in the middle of production of a new short film, and we have an extra special review for you planned! Sadly, big plans mean big chaos and– NO, NO MORE PUGS, YOU TAKE THAT THING BACK WHERE YOU FOUND IT, MISTER! A-hem, yes, well… This is Fluxx. A game that may not actually be reviewable.

RAAAWWRRR! SKRONK! SMASH! DESTROY!  You don’t know true horror until your house is falling apart, cars are being thrown like child playthings, and the world you once knew is being destroyed by horrific monsters from beyond the stars! Or maybe they’re from beneath the waves. Nuclear explosions? Lab testing? Eh, whatever, giant monsters and destruction! Run for you life! This is Rampage!
