A Real Game

by Charlie Etheridge-Nunnon January 9, 2017

Aragorn took a few lumps from the hill troll, and several smaller allies fell by the wayside; a Northern Tracker and a Snowborn Scout. Tragically, you never learnt their names.

24: The DVD Board Game

by Charlie Etheridge-Nunnon August 18, 2016
Charlie continues his misadventures in terrible licensed games. For the record I did not ask him to do this and had I been aware of this behaviour beforehand I would have staged an intervention. Mike B Charity shops sometimes cough up interesting games you wouldn’t have noticed before. Other times they barf out a pile of […]
