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

When To Let Go: Top Four Reasons To Get Rid of a Game

gamesgottago

Or? Moving is terrible.

We love board games. We blog about them, we play them, we review them, and we listen to other people complain or rave about them. However: Board Games are just things. Important and personal things to all of us (you included) but still, things. The sad thing about things, though, is that you can’t take them with you… Barring any Egyptian Pharos that are reading this blog, of course. You’ll have to move, or you’ll run out of space, or you’ll end up with a giant shrine of cardboard and the horrible realization that… You gotta get rid of some of them. Now, personal note time: I am currently packing for a big move from my beloved town to Savannah, GA to the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, CA, so this is going to be an exceptionally personal Top Five… And one written from experience. So, with the knowledge that you’re not alone in this, lets take a deep breath and talk about the Top Four Reasons to Get Rid of a Game.

Burn In Hell Review

FIREEEE
Before we begin, Skip-A-Turn would like to send it’s thanks to the Newbie Blogger Initiative, and would humbly like to accept it’s award of the Good Moniker Medal! Now, onto our regularly scheduled review!

It’s hot. It’s not just hot, it’s humid. The vinyl seats of your car stick to you, you’re at your driest when you’re in the shower, and did we mention it’s hot? Because we’re not completely sure we’re being as clear as we could be right now: It’s like you’re living in a constant sauna that’s on full blast next to Pompeii as it goes kablooie. Every so often some putz will try to tell you to think of some place colder, as if thinking of the melting ice caps will make you feel less like you’re roasting at two fifty! No, we’re going the opposite route. Way opposite. We’re going to the hottest thing in existence! This is Burn in Hell.

Munchkin Review

Munchkin

You’ve bravely made your way through the dungeon. You’ve taken quite a beating, went from a human to an elf to a dwarf to… You think a halfling, you’re not positive at this point. Possibly a Vampire? You’re not sure. But now you’re carrying a mace in one hand, a coffin in another, you’re wearing skin-tight pants, and you’re ready to take on the final monster that blocks you from the exit and your countless booty. But then you see it. And you see the absolute horror that is… The Gazebo. This is Munchkin.

Top 5 Reasons To Play RPGS

RPGOpEd
So. Role Playing Games. I’d put their public image somewhere between foot fungus and that guy on airplanes who feels like he’s earned your leg-space. They’re known as the domain of the dork, the netherworld of the nerd, the national pass-time of the neckbearded and the maladjusted. And when I suggest people try them, their first reaction is a resounding  “No!” Now, I’ve been an avid gamer of the non-video game variety for a little over six years now, and I’d like to… Dismantle a few stereotypes about the games of the role-playing variety.
