Petrichor

by Mike Bon April 12, 2017
I was incredibly fortunate to get my mits on a pre-production copy of the spiffy new game Petrichor from the designer hive-mind of David Chircop (Pursuit of Happiness) and David Turczi (Anachrony).

Secret Hitler

by Adam Won January 31, 2017
Are you good at bluffing and lying? I’m not. I’m bloody awful at it. I have tried to play poker, but it really should be named ‘who would like to have some of Adam’s money?’ My first attempt at Skull ended up with me crashing and burning in the most spectacular way imaginable. And Werewolf […]
