Looking At TKG Arena: The Elemental Kings

 It has been a busy few weeks for Mr. Geekess, and he hasn’t had a chance to write his section for the upcoming game review. It’s unlikely to be ready too soon, since he is in Johannesburg, so I thought that I would take this opportunity to put up a post about a game that […]

Small (and brutal) World

We had been to every single shop that we could think of in Durban. We’d spent more money on board games than we had intended on a trip that neither of us could really afford but had decided to come on anyway. And we were still searching for one more game. It wasn’t like it […]

Cure the World!

“Can you save humanity?” the box asks in bold letters as a group of four stand side by side, poised for action. When playing Pandemic, most often the answer is “No,” but it’s quickly followed by, “That’s not going to stop me from trying though!” Which is both unsurprising and perfectly appropriate! The Skinny Having […]

Man or Munchkin

Role playing games – you either love them or hate them, there is no in-between. They can lead to fun-filled fantasy adventures with your best mates, or endless arguments about minuscule details that really don’t matter in the larger scheme of things.

King for a Day

Ever wonder who’d win in a fight between Godzilla and King Kong? I know that they made a movie about it and all, but really, who has the time to see silly movies anyway… especially when you can act out the action yourself! Cast your mind back to the good ol’ days, when horror movies were […]

Dare to Escape?

The sounds of the rain forest surround you and your group of friends as you clutch boldly to your fistful of dice, nails digging into your palms waiting to hear that rumbling voice. Every breathe feels loud and obnoxious. Beads of sweat begin to form. And then it begins. “ESCAPE.” With that, a scrambling of […]

Conquering Puerto Rico

Ever wonder what it would be like to be a settler? A conqueror? An explorer? Planting crops, managing workers and trying not just to succeed, but to prosper is what Puerto Rico is all about. Considered by many to be the worker placement game to end all others, Puerto Rico throws you back in time […]

You Can’t Take Firefly From Us

To me, Nathan Fillion is Malcolm Reynolds. I know that I must have seen him in roles before, and I have certainly seen him in roles since, but they are nothing but hollow shells compared to the gun-slinging, insult-hurling, honour-driven space cowboy that I have come to know and love. And if the poll that […]
