Catch the Moon

by Charlie Etheridge-Nunnon September 16, 2017
Catch the Moon is a… Damn.   Catch the  Moon is an interesting little dexterity game which… Catch the Moon is a dexterity game. And sometimes I wonder why I do these things. I am dyspraxic. Quick comparisons are to having lag between my brain and my body. My spatial coordination is horrendous, as are […]

Robot Wars

by Charlie Etheridge-Nunnon July 23, 2017
This is my life now. I reviewed Lost, 24 and really should get round to writing a review of Ground Force. My ‘friends’ have seen this and decided that I’m the bad charity shop licensed game reviewer, so I was sent Robot Wars: The Game, to review. Thanks, Glen. At first, I thought what most […]

by Charlie Etheridge-Nunnon July 3, 2017
Just so you know where I’m coming from with this get yourself settled and I’ll tell a tale or two about my role-playing history with World of Darkness. Don’t worry, it’ll be quick. I lost my RPG cherry to Vampire: The Masquerade. I was 13 and had mistakenly been bought it for Christmas. It was […]

The Parkers Play Camel Up

by Charlie Etheridge-Nunnon June 22, 2017
Aside from all that board gaming and RPG shenanigans Charlie has also found time to author a series of short stories and a book all about a dysfunctional bunch of super heroes trying to find their place on earth. Think of it as Buffy meets X-Men with a side order of Scott Pilgrim. Anyway he […]

One Ugly Motherfucker

by Charlie Etheridge-Nunnon May 9, 2017
By Erika Chappell and Newstand Press   Sometimes a role-playing game can be deep, interesting, introspective. There have been projects like Trump/Putin which show how the ludicrous can seem worryingly real. Heads of State talks about dictators and living under them. TERPS tells us about military interpreters working for an occupying force. Then you get the weird […]

Trump/Putin

by Charlie Etheridge-Nunnon May 4, 2017
Trump/Putin A Ginger Goat game by Todd Crapper and Chelsea Hamilton Review copy provided by Josh Jordan.   I was Donald Trump this weekend, and I may have helped Russia invade Canada.

The Explorer’s Society

by Charlie Etheridge-Nunnon April 4, 2017
7th Sea is a swashbuckling fantasy game set in a vague parallel to old Europe, albeit the old Europe of the Musketeers, the Princess Bride and so on. You don’t make characters, you make ‘heroes’. You get bonuses for mixing up the skills you resolve things with, you fight ‘mooks’ and upon taking your first […]

Jacob from the In-Fighters will be running the game and has volunteered to provide input where necessary.
